Matthew 9:9–13

eAs Jesus passed on from there, he saw a man called fMatthew sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, Follow me. And he rose and followed him.

10 And as Jesus1 reclined at table in the house, behold, many gtax collectors and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, hWhy does your teacher eat with gtax collectors and sinners? 12 But when he heard it, he said, Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 Go and learn iwhat this means: jI desire mercy, and not sacrifice. For kI came not to call the righteous, lbut sinners.
