271Now there came to Him some of the 2Sadducees (who say that there is noresurrection ),
and they questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, Moseswrote for us that 3IF A MAN'SBROTHERDIES, having a wife, AND HE IS CHILDLESS, HIS BROTHER SHOULD aMARRY THE WIFE AND RAISE UP CHILDREN TO HIS BROTHER.
29"Now there were sevenbrothers; and the firsttook a wife and diedchildless;
and the second31
and the thirdbmarried her; and in the samewaycallsevenddied, leavingnochildren.
32"Finally the womandiedalso.
"In the resurrectiontherefore, whichone'swife will she be? For eallsevenfhad married her."
34Jesussaid to them, "The sons of 4thisagemarry and are given in marriage,35but those who are consideredworthy to attain to 5that age and the resurrection from the dead, neithermarrynor are given in marriage;36for they cannotevendieanymore, because they are likeangels, and are 6sons of God, beingsons of the resurrection.37"But that the dead are raised, evenMosesshowed, in 7the passage about the burning bush, where he calls the Lord8THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, AND THE GOD OF ISAAC, AND THE GOD OF JACOB.38"9Now He is not the God of the dead but of the living; for 10alllive to Him."39Some of the scribesanswered and said, "Teacher, You have spokenwell."
For 11they did not havecourage to question Him anylonger about anything.
4112Then He said to them, "How is it that they saygthe Christ is 13David'sson?42"For Davidhimselfsays in the book of Psalms,'14THE LORDSAID TO MY LORD,"SIT AT MY RIGHTHAND,4315UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET."'44"ThereforeDavidcalls Him 'Lord,' and how is He his son?"4516And while all the people were listening, He said to the disciples,
46"Beware of the scribes, 17who like to walkaround in longrobes, and love respectful greetings in the marketplaces, and chiefseats in the synagogues and places of honor at banquets,47whodevourwidows'houses, and for appearance'ssakeofferlongprayers. These will receivegreatercondemnation."
