30 Jesus took up the question and said, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him, beat him up, and fled, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down that road. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 In the same way, a Levite, when he arrived at the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritanu on his journey came up to him, and when he saw the man, he had compassion.v 34 He went over to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on olive oilw and wine. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 The next dayH he took out two denarii, Igave them to the innkeeper, and said, ‘Take care of him. When I come back I’ll reimburse you for whatever extra you spend.’
37 “The one who showed mercyx to him,” he said.
Then Jesus told him, “Go and do the same.”
Other mss add as he was leaving
