30 [...] некоторый человек шел из Иерусалима в Иерихон и попался разбойникам, которые сняли с него одежду, изранили его и ушли, оставив его едва живым.
30    In reply Jesus said: "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.
31 По случаю один священник шел тою дорогою и, увидев его, прошел мимо.
31    A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.
32 Также и левит, быв на том месте, подошел, посмотрел и прошел мимо.
32    So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
33 Самарянин же некто, проезжая, нашел на него и, увидев его, сжалился
33    But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.
34 и, подойдя, перевязал ему раны, возливая масло и вино; и, посадив его на своего осла, привез его в гостиницу и позаботился о нем;
34    He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him.
35 а на другой день, отъезжая, вынул два динария, дал содержателю гостиницы и сказал ему: позаботься о нем; и если издержишь что более, я, когда возвращусь, отдам тебе.
35    The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.'
