For they no longer dared to ask him any question.
But he said to them, "How can they say that the Christ is David's son?
For David himself says in the Book of Psalms, 'The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand,
till I make thy enemies a stool for thy feet.'

And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples,
"Beware of the scribes, who like to go about in long robes, and love salutations in the market places and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts,
who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation."
