Matthew 9:9-13 American Standard Version (ASV)

And as Jesus passed by from thence, he saw a man, called Matthew, sitting at the place of toll: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him.

10 And it came to pass, as he [a]sat at meat in the house, behold, many [b]publicans and sinners came and sat down with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples, Why eateth your Teacher with the [c]publicans and sinners? 12 But when he heard it, he said, They that are [d]whole have no need of a physician, but they that are sick. 13 But go ye and learn what this meaneth, [e]I desire mercy, and not sacrifice: for I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.
