* And he spake a parable unto them to this end , that men ought always to pray , and not to faint ; * Saying , There was in a city a judge , which feared not God , neither regarded man : * And there was a widow in that city ; and she came unto him , saying , Avenge me of mine adversary . * And he would not for a while : but afterward he said within himself , Though I fear not God , nor regard man ; * Yet because this widow troubleth me , I will avenge her , lest by her continual coming she weary me . * And the Lord said , Hear what the unjust judge saith . * And shall not God avenge his own elect , which cry day and night unto him , though he bear long with them ? * I tell you that he will avenge them speedily . Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh , shall he find faith on the earth ? * And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous , and despised others : * Two men went up into the temple to pray ; the one a Pharisee , and the other a publican . * The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself , God , I thank thee , that I am not as other men are , extortioners , unjust , adulterers , or even as this publican . * I fast twice in the week , I give tithes of all that I possess . * And the publican , standing afar off , would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven , but smote upon his breast , saying , God be merciful to me a sinner . * I tell you , this man went down to his house justified rather than the other : for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased ; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted .
