The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, "God I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector... But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven but was beating his breast and singing, "God be merciful to me, a sinner!" - Luke 18: 11, 13 (NRSV)
