On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, they called out, saying, โ€œJesus, Master, have mercy on us!โ€ When he saw them, he said to them, โ€œGo and show yourselves to the priests.โ€ And as they went, they were made clean. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. He prostrated himself at Jesusโ€™ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus asked, โ€œWere not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?โ€ Then he said to him, โ€œGet up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.โ€
