Luke 18:9-14 (NASB)

The Pharisee and the Publican

9   And He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves 
that they were righteous, and viewed others with contempt: 
10   "Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the 
other a tax collector. 
11   "The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: 'God, I thank 
You that I am not like other people: swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or 
even like this tax collector. 
12   'I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.' 
13   "But the tax collector, standing some distance away, was even 
unwilling to lift up his eyes to heaven, but was beating his breast, 
saying, 'God, be merciful to me, the sinner!' 
14   "I tell you, this man went to his house justified rather than the 
other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles 
himself will be exalted."
