The Healing Of The Ten Lepers

On their way to Jerusalem, Jesus and his disciples passed through

Samaria and Galilee. When he entered a certain village, he was met by

ten lepers, who cried to him from a distance, "Jesus, Master, have pity

on us." When Jesus saw them he said to them, "Go, and show yourselves to

the priests." And as they went, they were made clean.

One of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a

loud voice praised God; and he fell down at the feet of Jesus with his

face to the ground and thanked him; and this man was a Samaritan. Jesus

said to him, "Were not ten made clean? Where are the other nine? Was

there no one who returned to give praise to God except this stranger?"

And Jesus said to him, "Arise, and go on your way, your faith has made

you well."
