23:2Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
23:3All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
23:4For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
23:5But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
23:6And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
23:7And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
23:8But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
23:9And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
23:10Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
23:11But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
23:12And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
23:13But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
23:14Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
23:15Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
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.
23:23Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
23:24Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
23:25Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
23:26Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
23:27Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
23:28Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
23:29Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
23:30And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
23:31Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
23:32Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
23:33Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
12:13And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
12:14And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
12:15Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
12:16And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.
12:17And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
12:18Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
12:19Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
12:20Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
12:21And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
12:22And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
12:23In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
12:24And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
12:25For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
12:26And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
12:27He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
12:28And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
12:29And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
12:30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
12:31And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
12:32And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
12:33And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
12:34And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
12:35And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?
12:36For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
12:37David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
12:38And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
12:39And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
12:40Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
11:39And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
11:40Ye fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?
11:41But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.
11:42But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
11:43Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
11:44Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.
11:45Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.
11:46And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
11:47Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
11:48Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
11:49Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute:
11:50That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
11:51From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
11:52Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
11:53And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things:
11:54Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.
