9 And he spake this parable unto certain mwhich trusted nin themselves ||that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 Two men owent up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a ppublican. 11 The Pharisee qstood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, rextortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. 12 I sfast twice in the week, I tgive tithes of all that I upossess. 13 And the publican, qstanding afar off, xwould not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but ysmote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. 14 I tell you, this man zwent down to his house ajustified rather than the other: for bevery one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Or, as being righteous.
