And when he saw him, (A)he passed by on the other side. 32 Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain (B)Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had (C)compassion. 34 So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 On the next day, [b]when he departed, he took out two (D)denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ 36 So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?”

Then Jesus said to him, (E)“Go and do likewise.”

And not hide yourself from (F)your own flesh?
(G)Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;

Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.
