While the Rabbi was on the way to Jerusalem, he was passing between Shomron and the Galil. As he entered a village, ten men with tzara'at [a spiritual illness expressing itself in certain physical manifestations] stood at a distance from Him.  They raised their voices, saying, "Rabbi!  Master!  Have mercy on us!"

When he saw them, he said to them, "Go and show yourselves to the Levitical priests."

And as they were going, they were purified and cleansed of their tzara'at. Now one of them, when he saw that he had been healed, turned back, glorifying Hashem [G-d] with a loud voice, and he fell on his face at the Rabbi's feet and gave thanks to him.  The man was a Samaritan. Then the Rabbi answered and said, "Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine--where are they? Was no one found who returned to give glory to G-d, except this foreigner?"

And the Rabbi said to him, "Stand up and go; your faith has made you well."
