After Jesus had finished speaking, a Pharisee asked Jesus to eat with him. So Jesus went in and sat at the table.
But the Pharisee was surprised when he saw that Jesus did not wash his handsn before the meal.
The Lord said to him, "You Pharisees clean the outside of the cup and the dish, but inside you are full of greed and evil.
You foolish people! The same one who made what is outside also made what is inside.
So give what is in your dishes to the poor, and then you will be fully clean.
How terrible for you Pharisees! You give God one-tenth of even your mint, your rue, and every other plant in your garden. But you fail to be fair to others and to love God. These are the things you should do while continuing to do those other things.
How terrible for you Pharisees, because you love to have the most important seats in the synagogues, and you love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces.
How terrible for you, because you are like hidden graves, which people walk on without knowing."
One of the experts on the law said to Jesus, "Teacher, when you say these things, you are insulting us, too."
Jesus answered, "How terrible for you, you experts on the law! You make strict rules that are very hard for people to obey, but you yourselves don't even try to follow those rules.
How terrible for you, because you build tombs for the prophets whom your ancestors killed!
And now you show that you approve of what your ancestors did. They killed the prophets, and you build tombs for them!
