The good Samaritane.
And Jesus answering said, A certain man
went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped
him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him
half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and
when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite,
when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by
on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where
he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, and went
to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set
him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.
And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them
to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest
more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest
thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? (KJV)
