View In My Bible
21 "And awhoever swears by the btemple, swears both by cthe temple and by Him who 1dwells within it.#rl 22 "And dwhoever swears by heaven, 2swears both by the throne of God and by Him who sits upon it. 23 "3Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and ecummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others. 24 "You 4blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! 25 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For 5you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full fof robbery and self-indulgence. 26 "You blind Pharisee, first 6clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also. 27 "7Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness. 28 "So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. 29 "8Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, 30 and say, 'If we had been living in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.' 31 "So you testify against yourselves, that you 9are gsons of those who murdered the prophets.
