Luke 10:25-37 GNV
25 A teacher of the Law came up and tried to trap Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what

28 “You are right,” Jesus replied; “do this and you will live.”
29 But the teacher of the Law wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “Who is my

Jericho when robbers attacked him, stripped him, and beat him up, leaving him half

he walked on by on the other side.
32 In the same way a Levite also came there, went over and looked at the man, and
then walked on by on the other side.
33 But a Samaritan who was traveling that way came upon the man, and when he saw
him, his heart was filled with pity.
34 He went over to him, poured oil and wine on his wounds and bandaged them; then

care of him,’ he told the innkeeper, “and when I come back this way, I will pay you

17 who were rebuilding the wall. Even those who carried building materials worked
with one hand and kept a weapon in the other,
18 and everyone who was building kept a sword strapped to their waist. The man who
was to sound the alarm on the bugle stayed with me.
19 I told the people and their officials and leaders, “The work is spread out over such a
distance that we are widely separated from one another on the wall.
20 If you hear the bugle, gather around me. Our God will fight for us.”
21 So every day, from dawn until the stars came out at night, half of us worked on the
wall, while the other half stood guard with spears.
22 During this time I told the men in charge that they and all their helpers had to stay in
Jerusalem at night, so that we could guard the city at night as well as work in the
23 I didn’t take off my clothes even at night, neither did any of my companions nor my
