99. Parable of the Pharisee and the Publican


       
9He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and despised others:
10“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a publican.
11The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank thee that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.
12I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get.’
13But the publican, standing afar off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’
14I tell you this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself shall be humbled, but he who humbles himself shall be exalted.”
