Matthew 23:6

6 and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues,

Matthew 23:6 In-Context

4 They bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with their finger
5 They do all their deeds to be seen by men; for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long,
6 and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues,
7 and salutations in the market places, and being called rabbi by men.
8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren.
