"And Jesus answering said,
A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell
among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and
wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.

And by chance there came down a certain priest that way:
and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and
looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he
was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,
And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil
and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him
to an inn, and took care of him.

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 repay thee.

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

(The answer was unmistakable as to who had performed
the Christian act, "He that shewed mercy on him.")

"Then said Jesus...
Go, and do thou likewise."

Be Compassionate
