Luke 10:25-37 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

25 And lo! a wise man of the law rose up, tempting him, and saying, Master, what thing shall I do to have everlasting life? [And lo! a wise man of law rose, tempting him, and saying, Master, what thing doing shall I wield everlasting life?]

26 And he said to him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

27 He answered, and said, Thou shalt love thy Lord God [He answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God] of all thine heart, and of all thy soul, and of all thy strengths, and of all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

28 And Jesus said to him, Thou hast answered rightly; do this thing, and thou shalt live.

29 But he willing to justify himself, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

30 And Jesus beheld, and said, A man came down from Jerusalem into Jericho, and fell among thieves, and they robbed him[a], and wounded him, and went away, and left the man half alive.

31 And it befell, that a priest came down the same way, and passed forth, when he had seen him. [Forsooth it befell, that some priest came down in the same way, and, him seen, he passed forth.]

32 Also [and] a deacon, when he was beside the place, and saw him, passed forth.

33 But a Samaritan, going the way [Forsooth some Samaritan, making journey], came beside him; and he saw him, and had ruth on him;

34 and came to him, and bound together his wounds, and poured in oil and wine [pouring in oil and wine]; and laid him on his beast, and led him into an hostelry, and did the care of him.

35 And another day he brought forth two pence, and gave to the hosteler, and said, Have the care of him; and whatever thou shalt give over, I shall yield to thee, when I come again.

36 Who of these three, seemeth to thee, was neighbour to him, that fell among [the] thieves?

37 And he said, He that did mercy into him. And Jesus said to him, Go thou, and do thou in like manner.[b]

Luke 10:25-37 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

25 And a certain doctor of the law stood up and tested him, saying, Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life? 26 Jesus said to him, What is written in the law? How do you read it? 27 And he answered and said, Love your Lord God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself.

28 And Jesus said to him, You have answered right. This do, and you shall live. 29 But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, Who then is my neighbour?

30 Jesus answered and said, A certain man descended from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of thieves who robbed him of his clothing and wounded him, and departed leaving him half dead. 31 And by chance there came a certain priest that same way. And when he saw him, he passed by. 32 And likewise a Levite, when he came near to the place, went and looked on him, and passed by. 33 Then a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came near to him, and when he saw him had compassion on him, 34 and went and bound up his wounds, and poured in oil and wine. And he put him on his own animal and brought him to a common inn, and made provision for him. 35 And when he departed the next day, he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said to him, Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come back, I will recompense you. 36 Which now of these three do you think was neighbour to the man that fell into the thieves’ hands?

37 And the doctor of law said, He that showed mercy on him.

Then Jesus said to him, Go then and do likewise.

Luke 10:25-37 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

25 [a]Then behold, [b]a certain Lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

26 And he said unto him, What is written in the Law? how readest thou?

27 And he answered and said, Thou shalt love thy Lord God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy thought, and thy neighbor as thyself.

28 Then he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

29 [c]But he willing to [d]justify himself, said unto Jesus, Who is then my neighbor?

30 And Jesus answered, and said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, and they robbed him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

31 Now so it fell out, that there came down a certain Priest that same way, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

32 And likewise also a Levite, when he was come near to the place, went and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

33 Then a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came near unto him, and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds and poured in oil and wine, and put him on his own beast, and brought him to an Inn, and made provision for him.

35 And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him, and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will recompense thee.

36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves?

37 And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
