NKJVNew King James Version
10“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11The Pharisee #Ps. 135:2stood and prayed thus with himself, #Is. 1:15; 58:2; Rev. 3:17‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector. 12I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’ 13And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’ 14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; #Job 22:29; Matt. 23:12; Luke 14:11; (James 4:6; 1 Pet. 5:5)for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
