And likewise also a Levite who happened upon the place, having come, and having looked, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to him, and when he saw him, felt compassion. And having come, he wrapped up his wounds, pouring on olive oil and wine.

And on the morrow when departing, after taking out two denarii, he gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, Take care of him, and whatever thou might spend more, I will repay thee at my return. Which therefore, of these three, appears to thee to have become neighbor to the man who fell among the bandits? And he said, He who did mercy with him. Therefore Jesus said to him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Give to every man who asks thee, and from him who takes away thy personal things do not demand them back. And as ye desire that men would do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
