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.|
