A certain lawyer said unto Jesus, Who is my neighbor?

And Jesus, answering, said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves.

And they stripped him of his clothes, and departed, leaving him half dead.

And by chance a certain priest came down that way: and when he saw him he passed by on the other side.

And also a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed came where he was, and when he saw him he had compassion on him;

And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

And on the morrow, when he departed, he took out money and gave unto the host, and said unto him, Take care of him;

And whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor to him who fell among thieves?

And the lawyer said, He that showed mercy on him.

Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Some countries are very far from the sea, but in these countries, there are mines of salt. God knew that salt would preserve many things which men would want to keep, and that it would make their food taste agreeably; so he has given it to all parts of our world, that men might have it every where.
