I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners
10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew's house, many tax collectors and "sinners" came and ate with
him and his disciples. 11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, "Why does your teacher
eat with tax collectors and 'sinners'?"
12 On hearing this, Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
13 But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.'
For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
