Coptic Luke 10:29-37

"Who is my neighbor?"

29.ntoF de eFoueS tmaioF peJaF nihsous Je nim pe petHitouwi
But he, wishing to justify himself, said to Jesus, "Who is my neighbor?"

30.aihsous ouwSb peJaF naF Je. ourwme pentaFei ebol Hn qierosoluma eiericw. aFei etootou nHenma nsoone nai de aukaaF kaHhou auJFHensaS aubwk aukaaF eFo mpSmou.
Jesus replied, saying to him, "There was a man who went from Jerusalem to Jericho. He fell among a den of robbers, and these stripped him naked and inflicted blows, and went off leaving him half-dead.

31.Hn ouSsne de auouhhb ei epesht HiteHih etmmau aFnau eroF aFsaatF
And by coincidence, a priest coming down on that road saw him, but crossed over.

32.Homoiws on ouleueths ntereFei eJmpma etmmau aFnau eroF aFsaatF
Likewise also a Levite, when he came upon that place, saw him, but crossed over.

33.ausamariths de eFmooSe ei eJwF aFnau eroF aFSnHthF eHrai eJwF
But a Samaritan, travelling toward him, saw him and had pity upon/felt compassion for him.

34.aFTpeFouoi eroF aFmour nneFsaS aFpwHt nouneH eJwou nmouhrp aFtaloF eJn peFtbnh mmin mmoF aFntF eupantocion aFFipeFroouS
He approached him, bound up his wounds, and poured oil and wine upon them. He mounted him upon his own beast/donkey and brought him to an inn and took care of him.

35.mpeFraste de eFnhou ebol aFTFkhte mppantoceus peJaF naF Je. FipeFroouS auw petknaJoF ebol eroF. eiSanktoi TnataaF nak
And on the next day, he brought forth a double drachma and gave it to the inkeeper, and said to him, "Take care of him and what (more) you will expend on him, when I return I will give it to you."

36.nim mpeiSomnt nnaHrak pentaFr petHitouwF mpentaFei etootou nnsoone
Who of these three appears to you to have become the neighbor of the one who fell into the hands of the robbers?

37.ntoF de peJaF naF Je pentaFrpna nmmaF pe. peJe ihsous de naF Je bwk Hwwk ngeire Hinai
And he said to him, "The one who treated him mercifully." And Jesus said to him, "Go, and you yourself do likewise."
