Chapter 23

  1. 1. Then
    G5119
    spake
    G2980
    Jesus
    G2424
    to the multitude,
    G3793
    and
    G2532
    to his
    G846
    disciples,
    G3101
  2. 2. Saying,
    G3004
    The scribes
    G1122
    and
    G2532
    the Pharisees
    G5330
    sit
    G2523
    in
    G1909
    Moses'
    G3475
    seat:
    G2515
  3. 3. All
    G3956
    therefore
    G3767
    whatsoever
    G3745
    they
    G302
    bid
    G2036
    you
    G5213
    observe,
    G5083
    that observe
    G5083
    and
    G2532
    do;
    G4160
    but
    G1161
    do
    G4160
    not
    G3361
    ye after
    G2596
    their
    G846
    works:
    G2041
    for
    G1063
    they say,
    G3004
    and
    G2532
    do
    G4160
    not.
    G3756
  4. 4. For
    G1063
    they bind
    G1195
    heavy
    G926
    burdens
    G5413
    and
    G2532
    grievous to be borne,
    G1419
    and
    G2532
    lay
    G2007
    them on
    G1909
    men's
    G444
    shoulders;
    G5606
    but
    G1161
    they themselves will
    G2309
    not
    G3756
    move
    G2795
    them
    G846
    with one of their
    G846
    fingers.
    G1147
  5. 5. But
    G1161
    all
    G3956
    their
    G846
    works
    G2041
    they do
    G4160
    for
    G4314
    to be seen
    G2300
    of men:
    G444
    G1161
    they make broad
    G4115
    their
    G846
    phylacteries,
    G5440
    and
    G2532
    enlarge
    G3170
    the borders
    G2899
    of their
    G846
    garments,
    G2440
  6. 6. And
    G5037
    love
    G5368
    the uppermost rooms
    G4411
    at
    G1722
    feasts,
    G1173
    and
    G2532
    the chief seats
    G4410
    in
    G1722
    the synagogues,
    G4864
  7. 7. And
    G2532
    greetings
    G783
    in
    G1722
    the markets,
    G58
    and
    G2532
    to be called
    G2564
    of
    G5259
    men,
    G444
    Rabbi,
    G4461
    Rabbi.
    G4461
  8. 8. But
    G1161
    be
    G2564
    not
    G3361
    ye
    G5210
    called
    G2564
    Rabbi:
    G4461
    for
    G1063
    one
    G1520
    is
    G2076
    your
    G5216
    Master,
    G2519
    even Christ;
    G5547
    and
    G1161
    all
    G3956
    ye
    G5210
    are
    G2075
    brethren.
    G80
  9. 9. And
    G2532
    call
    G2564
    no
    G3361
    man your
    G5216
    father
    G3962
    upon
    G1909
    the earth:
    G1093
    for
    G1063
    one
    G1520
    is
    G2076
    your
    G5216
    Father,
    G3962
    which
    G3588
    is in
    G1722
    heaven.
    G3772
  10. 10. Neither
    G3366
    be ye called
    G2564
    masters:
    G2519
    for
    G1063
    one
    G1520
    is
    G2076
    your
    G5216
    Master,
    G2519
    even Christ.
    G5547
  11. 11. But
    G1161
    he that is greatest
    G3187
    among you
    G5216
    shall be
    G2071
    your
    G5216
    servant.
    G1249
  12. 12. And
    G1161
    whosoever
    G3748
    shall exalt
    G5312
    himself
    G1438
    shall be abased;
    G5013
    and
    G2532
    he
    G3748
    that shall humble
    G5013
    himself
    G1438
    shall be exalted.
    G5312
  13. 13. But
    G1161
    woe
    G3759
    unto you,
    G5213
    scribes
    G1122
    and
    G2532
    Pharisees,
    G5330
    hypocrites!
    G5273
    for
    G3754
    ye shut up
    G2808
    the kingdom
    G932
    of heaven
    G3772
    against
    G1715
    men:
    G444
    for
    G1063
    ye
    G5210
    neither
    G3761
    go in
    G1525
    yourselves, neither
    G3756
    suffer ye
    G863
    them that are entering
    G1525
    to go in.
    G1525
  14. 14. Woe
    G3759
    unto you,
    G5213
    scribes
    G1122
    and
    G2532
    Pharisees,
    G5330
    hypocrites!
    G5273
    for
    G3754
    ye devour
    G2719
    widows'
    G5503
    houses,
    G3614
    and
    G2532
    for a pretence
    G4392
    make
    G4336
    long
    G3117
    prayer:
    G4336
    therefore
    G5124
    ye
    G1223
    shall receive
    G2983
    the greater
    G4055
    damnation.
    G2917
  15. 15. Woe
    G3759
    unto you,
    G5213
    scribes
    G1122
    and
    G2532
    Pharisees,
    G5330
    hypocrites!
    G5273
    for
    G3754
    ye compass
    G4013
    sea
    G2281
    and
    G2532
    land
    G3584
    to make
    G4160
    one
    G1520
    proselyte,
    G4339
    and
    G2532
    when
    G3752
    he is made,
    G1096
    ye make
    G4160
    him
    G846
    twofold more
    G1362
    the child
    G5207
    of hell
    G1067
    than yourselves.
    G5216
  16. 16. Woe
    G3759
    unto you,
    G5213
    ye blind
    G5185
    guides,
    G3595
    which
    G3588
    say,
    G3004
    Whosoever
    G302
    shall
    G3739
    swear
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    the temple,
    G3485
    it is
    G2076
    nothing;
    G3762
    but
    G1161
    whosoever
    G302
    shall
    G3739
    swear
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    the gold
    G5557
    of the temple,
    G3485
    he is a debtor!
    G3784
  17. 17. Ye fools
    G3474
    and
    G2532
    blind:
    G5185
    for
    G1063
    whether
    G5101
    is
    G2076
    greater,
    G3187
    the gold,
    G5557
    or
    G2228
    the temple
    G3485
    that sanctifieth
    G37
    the gold?
    G5557
  18. 18. And,
    G2532
    Whosoever
    G1437
    shall
    G3739
    swear
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    the altar,
    G2379
    it is
    G2076
    nothing;
    G3762
    but
    G1161
    whosoever
    G302
    G3739
    sweareth
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    the gift
    G1435
    that is upon
    G1883
    it,
    G846
    he is guilty.
    G3784
  19. 19. Ye fools
    G3474
    and
    G2532
    blind:
    G5185
    for
    G1063
    whether
    G5101
    is greater,
    G3187
    the gift,
    G1435
    or
    G2228
    the altar
    G2379
    that sanctifieth
    G37
    the gift?
    G1435
  20. 20. Whoso therefore
    G3767
    shall swear
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    the altar,
    G2379
    sweareth
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    it,
    G846
    and
    G2532
    by
    G1722
    all things
    G3956
    thereon.
    G846
    G1883
  21. 21. And
    G2532
    whoso shall swear
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    the temple,
    G3485
    sweareth
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    it,
    G846
    and
    G2532
    by
    G1722
    him that dwelleth
    G2730
    therein.
    G846
  22. 22. And
    G2532
    he that shall swear
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    heaven,
    G3772
    sweareth
    G3660
    by
    G1722
    the throne
    G2362
    of God,
    G2316
    and
    G2532
    by
    G1722
    him that sitteth
    G2521
    thereon.
    G846
    G1883
  23. 23. Woe
    G3759
    unto you,
    G5213
    scribes
    G1122
    and
    G2532
    Pharisees,
    G5330
    hypocrites!
    G5273
    for
    G3754
    ye pay tithe
    G586
    of mint
    G2238
    and
    G2532
    anise
    G432
    and
    G2532
    cummin,
    G2951
    and
    G2532
    have omitted
    G863
    the weightier
    G926
    matters of the law,
    G3551
    judgment,
    G2920
    G2532
    mercy,
    G1656
    and
    G2532
    faith:
    G4102
    these
    G5023
    ought ye
    G1163
    to have done,
    G4160
    and not
    G3361
    to leave
    G863
    the other
    G2548
    undone.
    G863
  24. 24. Ye blind
    G5185
    guides,
    G3595
    which strain at
    G1368
    a gnat,
    G2971
    and
    G1161
    swallow
    G2666
    a camel.
    G2574
  25. 25. Woe
    G3759
    unto you,
    G5213
    scribes
    G1122
    and
    G2532
    Pharisees,
    G5330
    hypocrites!
    G5273
    for
    G3754
    ye make clean
    G2511
    the outside
    G1855
    of the cup
    G4221
    and
    G2532
    of the platter,
    G3953
    but
    G1161
    within
    G2081
    they are full
    G1073
    of
    G1537
    extortion
    G724
    and
    G2532
    excess.
    G192
  26. 26. Thou blind
    G5185
    Pharisee,
    G5330
    cleanse
    G2511
    first
    G4412
    that which is within
    G1787
    the cup
    G4221
    and
    G2532
    platter,
    G3953
    that
    G2443
    the outside
    G1622
    of them
    G846
    may be
    G1096
    clean
    G2513
    also.
    G2532
  27. 27. Woe
    G3759
    unto you,
    G5213
    scribes
    G1122
    and
    G2532
    Pharisees,
    G5330
    hypocrites!
    G5273
    for
    G3754
    ye are like
    G3945
    unto whited
    G2867
    sepulchres,
    G5028
    which
    G3748
    indeed
    G3303
    appear
    G5316
    beautiful
    G5611
    outward,
    G1855
    but
    G1161
    are within
    G2081
    full
    G1073
    of dead
    G3498
    men's bones,
    G3747
    and
    G2532
    of all
    G3956
    uncleanness.
    G167
  28. 28. Even so
    G3779
    ye
    G5210
    also
    G3303
    G2532
    outwardly
    G1855
    appear
    G5316
    righteous
    G1342
    unto men,
    G444
    but
    G1161
    within
    G2081
    ye are
    G2075
    full
    G3324
    of hypocrisy
    G5272
    and
    G2532
    iniquity.
    G458
  29. 29. Woe
    G3759
    unto you,
    G5213
    scribes
    G1122
    and
    G2532
    Pharisees,
    G5330
    hypocrites!
    G5273
    because
    G3754
    ye build
    G3618
    the tombs
    G5028
    of the prophets,
    G4396
    and
    G2532
    garnish
    G2885
    the sepulchres
    G3419
    of the righteous,
    G1342
  30. 30. And
    G2532
    say,
    G3004
    If
    G1487
    we had been
    G2258
    in
    G1722
    the days
    G2250
    of our
    G2257
    fathers,
    G3962
    we would
    G302
    not
    G3756
    have been
    G2258
    partakers
    G2844
    with them
    G846
    in
    G1722
    the blood
    G129
    of the prophets.
    G4396
  31. 31. Wherefore
    G5620
    ye be witnesses
    G3140
    unto yourselves,
    G1438
    that
    G3754
    ye are
    G2075
    the children
    G5207
    of them which killed
    G5407
    the prophets.
    G4396
  32. 32. Fill
    G4137
    ye
    G5210
    up
    G4137
    then
    G2532
    the measure
    G3358
    of your
    G5216
    fathers.
    G3962
  33. 33. Ye serpents,
    G3789
    ye generation
    G1081
    of vipers,
    G2191
    how
    G4459
    can ye
    G5343
    escape
    G575
    the damnation
    G2920
    of hell?
    G1067
  34. 34. Wherefore,
    G5124
    G1223
    behold,
    G2400
    I
    G1473
    send
    G649
    unto
    G4314
    you
    G5209
    prophets,
    G4396
    and
    G2532
    wise men,
    G4680
