And (kai) who (hoi), having disrobed him out (ekdusantes auton) [of his clothes, AE] and (kai) having put upon (epithentes) [him, RE] plagues (plēgas), they went away (apēlthon), having let [him, RE] go (aphentes) half dead (hēmithanē).


10:31 But (de) down (kata) concurrent with (sunkurian) [this, AE], [a] certain (tis) sacrificial priest (hiereus) was walking down (katebainen) in (en) to the (tē) way (hodō) of that (ekeinē)


And (kai) he having seen (idōn) him (auton), he passed alongside opposite (antiparēlthen).

10:33 But (de) [a] certain (tis) Samaritan (samareitēs), [a] wayfaring one (hodeuōn), he came (ēlthen) down on account (kat’) of him (auton), and (kai) he having seen (idōn) [him, RE] his spleen was caused to ache4698 (esplagchnisthē).


10:34 And (kai) he having come to (proselthōn) [him, v33, RE] he bound down (katedēsen) the (ta) traumas (traumata) of him (autou), pouring upon (epicheōn) [the traumas, RE] olive oil (elaion) and (kai) wine (oinon).


But (de) having mounted (epibibasas) him (auton) upon (epi) the (to) animal (ktēnos) of his own (idion), he led (ēgagen) him (auton) into (eis) [a] lodging place (pandocheion).


And (kai) of him (autou), he was cared over (epemelēthē)!


10:35 And (kai) upon (epi) the (tēn) morrow (aurion), he having thrown out (ekbalōn) two (duo) denarii (dēnaria), he gave (edōken) [them, AE] to the (tō) innkeeper (pandochei) and (kai) he enunciated (eipen), 'You are caused to care over (epimelēthēti) him (autou)


And (kai) perhaps (an) anything (ti) which (ho) you may spend toward (prosdapanēsēs) [him, RE], I (ego), in (en) the (tō) [next time, AE] of me (me) I am caused to come upon (epanerchesthai) [you, AE], I shall give (apodōsō) [it, AE] to you (soi).'


10:36 Which one (tis) of these (toutōn), of the (tōn) three (triōn), do you conclude (soi dokei) to have become (gegonenai) [a] neighborly one (plēsion) of the one (tou) having fallen in (empesontos) among (eis) the (tous) robbers (lēstas)?"


10:37 But (de) the (ho) [lawyer, v25, RE] enunciated (eipen), "The one (ho) having done (poiēsas) the (to) mercy (eleos) of him (autou) with (met) [him, v35, RE]."
