(Read Luke 10 Part 1 First)

31 "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.

32 A Temple assistant* walked over and looked at him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side.1

33 "Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt deep pity.

34 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.

35 The next day he handed the innkeeper two pieces of silver* 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.'2

36 "Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by bandits?" Jesus asked.

37 The man replied, "The one who showed him mercy." Then Jesus said, "Yes, now go and do the same."

38 As Jesus and the disciples continued on their way to Jerusalem, they came to a village where a woman named Martha welcomed them into her home.

39 Her sister, Mary, sat at the Lord's feet, listening to what he taught.

40 But Martha was worrying over the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, "Lord, doesn't it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me."

41 But the Lord said to her, "My dear Martha, you are so upset over all these details!

42 There is really only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it--and I won't take it away from her."

Read Luke 11
