The Pharisee and the Publican

Luk 18:9  And he spake also this parable unto certain who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and set all others at nought:

Luk 18:10  Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

Luk 18:11  The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

Luk 18:12  I fast twice in the week; I give tithes of all that I get.

Luk 18:13  But the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote his breast, saying, God, be thou merciful to me a sinner.

Luk 18:14  I say unto you, This man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be humbled; but he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
