Matthew 23:1-22

1 Then Jesus spoke to the multitudes and to his disciples,
2 Saying: The scribes and the Pharisees have sitten on the chair of Moses.
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.
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
5 And all their works they do for to be seen of men. For they make their phylacteries broad and enlarge their fringes.
6 And they love the first places at feasts and the first chairs in the synagogues,
7 And salutations in the market place, and to be called by men, Rabbi.
8 But be not you called Rabbi. For one is your master: and all you are brethren.
9 And call none your father upon earth; for one is your father, who is in heaven.
10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your master, Christ.
11 He that is the greatest among you shall be your servant.
12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be humbled: and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
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.
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
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.
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.
17 Ye foolish and blind: for whether is greater, the gold or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
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.
19 Ye foolish and blind: for whether is greater, the gift or the altar that sanctifieth the gift
20 He therefore that sweareth by the altar sweareth by it and by all things that are upon it.
21 And whosoever shall swear by the temple sweareth by it and by him that dwelleth in it
22 And he that sweareth by heaven sweareth by the throne of God and by him that sitteth thereon.
