18 Revised Standard Version Passage

9He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and despised others:The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector Lk.18.9-14 (borders of Samaria)
10"Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 
11The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, 'God, I thank thee that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. 
12I fast twice a week, I give tithes of all that I get.' 
13But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner!' 
14I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted."
