The Pharisee and the Tax Collector

Luke Chapter 18


18:9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:  
18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.    
18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.    
18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.    
18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.    
18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
