Woe unto [therm that are] wise in their own
And yet betray such stupidity and sottishness, as to call things
by their wrong names; and make such a perverse judgment of them,
as before described. This is a true description of the Scribes
and Pharisees in Christ's time; who said, "dost thou teach us?
are we blind also?" ( John
9:34-40 ) and prudent in their own sight;
being wise above what was written; leaving the word of God, and
following the traditions of the elders.
