Matthew 23:5-15 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
5 "Everything they do is done for men to see:1 They make their phylacteriesa2 wide and the tassels on their garments3 long; 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues;4 7 they love to be greeted in the marketplaces and to have men call them 'Rabbi.'5 8 "But you are not to be called 'Rabbi,' for you have only one Master and you are all brothers. 9 And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father,6 and he is in heaven. 10 Nor are you to be called 'teacher,' for you have one Teacher, the Christ.b 11 The greatest among you will be your servant.7 12 For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.8 13 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites!9 You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.c10 15 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert,11 and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell12 as you are.
