Luke 18:9-14 From NIV Halley’s SB Comparing NIV Ryrie SB, NASB, NET, ESV, NLT, Douay-Rheims

Luke 18:9-14 NIV Ryrie SB To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable:

“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: “God, thank you that am not like other men–robbers, evildoers, adulterers–or even like this tax collector.

I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all get.’

“But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, “God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Luke 18:9-14 NIV Halley’s SB To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable:

“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself: “God, thank you that am not like other men–robbers, evildoers, adulterers–or even like this tax collector.

I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all get.’

“But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, “God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

The Pharisee and the Publican 

Luke 18:9-14 NASB And He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and viewed other with contempt:

“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

“The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself: ‘God, I thank You that am not like ither people; swondlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.

fast twice a week; pay tithes of all that get.’

“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!’

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.”

The Parable of the Pharisee and Tax Collector

Luke 18:9-14 NET Jesus also told this parable to some who were confident that they were righteous and looked down on everyone else.

“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

The Pharisee stood and prayed about himself like this: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people; extortionists, unrighteous people, adulterers–or even like this tax collector.

fast twice a week; give a tenth of everything I get.’

The tax collector, however, stood far off and would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, be merciful to me, sinner that I am!’

tell you that this man went down to his home justified rather than the Pharisee. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

The Pharisee and the Tax Collector

Luke 18:9-14 ESV He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and treated others with contempt;

“Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.

The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus; ‘God, thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.

I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that get.’

But the tax collector, standing far off, wou;d not even liftup his eyesto heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’

tell you, this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

Parable of the Pharisee and Tax Collector

Luke 18:9-14 NLT Then Jesus told this story to some who had great confidence in their own righteousness and scorned everyone else:

“Two men went to the Temple to pray. One was a Pharisee, and the other was a despised tax collector.

The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed this prayer ‘I thank you, God, that am not like other people–cheaters, sinners, adulterers. I‘m certainly not like that tax collector!

I fast twice a week, and give you a tenth of my income.’

“But the tax collector stood at a distance and dared not even lift his eyes to heaven as he prayed. Instead, he beat his chest in sorrow, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, for  am a sinner.’

I tell you, this sinnerI, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

St Luke 18:9-14 Douay-Rheims And to some who trusted in themselves as just, and despised others, he spoke also this parable:

Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.

The Pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself; O God, give thee thanks that am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, as also is this publican.

I fast twice in a week; give tithes of all that I possess.

And the publican, standing afar off, would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven; but struck his breast, saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner.

I say to you, this man went down into his house justified rather than the other; because every one that exalteth himself, shall be humbled; and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted.
