RHE 1 Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to his disciples, NIV 1 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: RHE 2 Saying: The scribes and the Pharisees have sitten on the chair of Moses. NIV 2 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. RHE 3 All things therefore whatsoever they shall say to you, observe and do: but according to their works do ye not. For they say, and do not. NIV 3 So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. RHE 4 For they bind heavy and insupportable burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders: but with a finger of their own they will not move them NIV 4 They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them. RHE 5 And all their works they do for to be seen of men. For they make their phylacteries broad and enlarge their fringes. NIV 5 “Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacterieswide and the tassels on their garments long; RHE 6 And they love the first places at feasts and the first chairs in the synagogues, NIV 6 they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; RHE 7 And salutations in the market place, and to be called by men, Rabbi. NIV 7 they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others. RHE 8 But be not you called Rabbi. For one is your master: and all you are brethren. NIV 8 “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. RHE 9 And call none your father upon earth; for one is your father, who is in heaven. NIV 9 And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. RHE 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your master, Christ. NIV 10 Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. RHE 11 He that is the greatest among you shall be your servant. NIV 11 The greatest among you will be your servant. RHE 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be humbled: and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. NIV 12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. RHE 13 But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men: for you yourselves do not enter in and those that are going in, you suffer not to enter. NIV 13 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to. RHE 14 Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour the houses of widows, praying long prayers. For this you shall receive the greater judgment RHE 15 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you go round about the sea and the land to make one proselyte. And when he is made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves. NIV 15 “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to win a single convert, and when you have succeeded, you make them twice as much a child of hell as you are. RHE 16 Woe to you, blind guides, that say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but he that shall swear by the gold of the temple is a debtor. NIV 16 “Woe to you, blind guides! You say, ‘If anyone swears by the temple, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gold of the temple is bound by that oath.’ RHE 17 Ye foolish and blind: for whether is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? NIV 17 You blind fools! Which is greater: the gold, or the temple that makes the gold sacred? RHE 18 And whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon it is a debtor. NIV 18 You also say, ‘If anyone swears by the altar, it means nothing; but anyone who swears by the gift on the altar is bound by that oath.’ RHE 19 Ye foolish and blind: for whether is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifieth the gift NIV 19 You blind men! Which is greater: the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred? RHE 20 He therefore that sweareth by the altar sweareth by it and by all things that are upon it. NIV 20 Therefore, anyone who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything on it. RHE 21 And whosoever shall swear by the temple sweareth by it and by him that dwelleth in it NIV 21 And anyone who swears by the temple swears by it and by the one who dwells in it. RHE 22 And he that sweareth by heaven sweareth by the throne of God and by him that sitteth thereon. NIV 22 And anyone who swears by heaven swears by God’s throne and by the one who sits on it.
