New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
39 Then the Lord said to him, "You Pharisees are so careful to clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are still filthy -- full of greed and wickedness! 39 Then the Lord said to him, "Now then, you Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness.
40 Fools! Didn't God make the inside as well as the outside? 40 You foolish people! Did not the one who made the outside make the inside also?
41 So give to the needy what you greedily possess, and you will be clean all over." 41 But give what is inside [the dish] to the poor, and everything will be clean for you.
42 "But how terrible it will be for you Pharisees! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest part of your income, but you completely forget about justice and the love of God. You should tithe, yes, but you should not leave undone the more important things." 42 "Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone.
