THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

23:16Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!

23:17Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?

23:18And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.

23:19Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?

23:20Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.

23:21And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.

23:22And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
