A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho,and fell among thieves,which stripped him of his raiment,and wounded him,and departed,leaving him half dead.And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him,he passed by on the other side.And likewise a Levite,when he was at the place.came and looked on him,and passed by on the other side.But a certain Samaritan,as he journeyed,came where he was:and when he saw him,he had compassion on him,and went to him and bound up his wounds,pouring in oil and wine,and set him on his own beast,and brought him to an inn,and took care of him.And on the morrow when he departed,he took out two pence and gave them to the host,and said unto him,Take care of him;and whatsoever thou spendest more,when I come again,I will repay thee.
NEW LIVING TRANSLATION (TYNDALE HOUSE PUBLISHER)
A Jewish man was travelling on a trip from Jerusalem to jericho,and he was attacked by bandits.They stripped him of his clothes and money,beat him up,and left him half dead beside the road.By chance a Jewish priest came along,but when he saw the man lying there,he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by.A Temple assistant (Greek-a Levite) walked over and looked at him lying there,but he also passed by on the other side.Then a despised Samaritan came along,and when he saw the man,he felt deep pity.Kneeling beside him,the samaritan soothed his wounds with medicine and bandaged them.Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn,where he took care of him.The next day he handed the innkeeper two pieces of silver (Greek-2 denaril) and told him to take care of the man.’If his bill runs higher than that,’he said,’I’ll pay the difference the next time I am here.’
