Luke 18:9-14

CEB 9 Jesus told this parable to certain people who had convinced themselves that they were righteous and who looked on everyone else with disgust: NRS 9 He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: CEB 10 "Two people went up to the temple to pray. One was a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. NRS 10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. CEB 11 The Pharisee stood and prayed about himself with these words, ‘God, I thank you that I'm not like everyone else—crooks, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. NRS 11 The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, "God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. CEB 12 I fast twice a week. I give a tenth of everything I receive.' NRS 12 I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.' CEB 13 But the tax collector stood at a distance. He wouldn't even lift his eyes to look toward heaven. Rather, he struck his chest and said, ‘God, show mercy to me, a sinner.' NRS 13 But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner!' CEB 14 I tell you, this person went down to his home justified rather than the Pharisee. All who lift themselves up will be brought low, and those who make themselves low will be lifted up." NRS 14 I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted."
