 240    The  PHARISEE  &  the  TAX COLLECTOR 
   Matt       Mark    Luke 18
     9  He also told this parable
      to some who trusted in themselves


that they were righteous
      and despised others:


"Two men went up into the temple to pray,
      one a Pharisee
      and the other a tax collector.


The 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.


I fast twice a week,
      I give tithes of all that I get.'


But the tax collector, 
      standing far off,
      would not even lift up his eyes to heaven,  
      but beat his breast, saying,
      'God, be merciful to me, a sinner!'


I tell you,
      this man went down to his house justified
      rather than the other;
      for every one who exalts himself will be humbled,
      but he who humbles himself will be exalted."
