 179   The  GOOD  SAMARITAN 
   Matt       Mark    Luke 10
     29  But he, desiring to justify himself,
      said to Jesus,
      "And who is my neighbor?"


Jesus replied,


"A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho,
      and he fell among robbers,
      who stripped him and beat him,
      and departed, leaving him half-dead.


Now by chance a priest was going down that road;
      and when he saw him, passed by on the other side.


So likewise a Levite, 
      when he came to the place and saw him,
      passed by on the other side.


But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was;
      and when he saw him, he had compassion,


and went to him and bound up his wounds,
      pouring on oil and wine;
      then he set him on his own beast
      and brought him to an inn,
      and took care of him.


And the next day he took out two denarii
      and gave them to the innkeeper, saying,
      'Take care of him;
      and whatever more you spend,
      I will repay you when I come back.'


Which of these three, do you think,
      proved neighbor to the man
      who fell among the robbers?"


He said,
      "The one who showed mercy on them."
      And Jesus said to him,
      "Go, and do likewise."
