Jesus corrects the legal experts

35 While Jesus was teaching in the temple, he said, "Why do the legal experts say that the Christ is David's son? 36 David himself, inspired by the Holy Spirit, said, The Lord said to my lord, ‘Sit at my right side until I turn your enemies into your footstool.'a 37 David himself calls him ‘Lord,' so how can he be David's son?" The large crowd listened to him with delight. 38 As he was teaching, he said, "Watch out for the legal experts. They like to walk around in long robes. They want to be greeted with honor in the markets. 39 They long for places of honor in the synagogues and at banquets. 40 They are the ones who cheat widows out of their homes, and to show off they say long prayers. They will be judged most harshly."
