Warning Against Hypocrisy

1 During {this time}a [when]b a crowd of many thousands had gathered together, so that they were trampling one another, he began to say to his disciples first, "Beware for yourselves of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 But nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, and secret that will not be made known. 3 Therefore everything that you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what {you have whispered}c in the inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops.

Fear God Rather Than People

4 "And I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after these [things] do not have anything more to do. 5 But I will show you whom you should fear: fear the one who has authority, after the killing, to throw [you]d into hell! Yes, I tell you, fear this one! 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten in the sight of God.
