25. And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying, ``Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" 26. And He said to him, ``What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?" 27. And he answered, ``YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." 28. And He said to him, ``You have answered correctly; DO THIS AND YOU WILL LIVE." 29. But wishing to justify himself, he said to Jesus, ``And who is my neighbor?" 30. Jesus replied and said, ``A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead. 31. ``And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32. ``Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33. ``But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, 34. and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35. ``On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, `Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.' 36. ``Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers' hands? " 37. And he said, ``The one who showed mercy toward him." Then Jesus said to him, ``Go and do the same."
