27 And after these things, he went out, and he saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the customs office. And he said to him, "Follow me."
28 And leaving behind everything, rising up, he followed him.
29 And Levi made a great feast for him in his own house. And there was a large crowd of tax collectors and others, who were sitting at table with them.
30 But the Pharisees and scribes were murmuring, saying to his disciples, "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?"
31 And responding, Jesus said to them: "It is not those who are well who need a doctor, but those who have maladies.
32 I have not come to call the just, but sinners to repentance."
