Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead [men's] bones, and of all uncleanness.
[Thou] blind Pharisee, cleanse first that [which is] within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
[Ye] blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.
Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
[Ye] fools and blind: for whether [is] greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift?
And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty.
[Ye] fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold?
Woe unto you, [ye] blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor!
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.
And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation.
That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;
Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and [some] of them they shall slay and persecute:
Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.
Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.
And he said, Woe unto you also, [ye] lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.
Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou reproachest us also.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over [them] are not aware [of them].
Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.
But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
But rather give alms of such things as ye have; and, behold, all things are clean unto you.
[Ye] fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also?
And the Lord said unto him, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.
And when the Pharisee saw [it], he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.
[Ye] serpents, [ye] generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in [yourselves], neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
Then came his disciples, and said unto him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees were offended, after they heard this saying?
Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.
And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand:
But in vain they do worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with [their] lips; but their heart is far from me.
[Ye] hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,
And honour not his father or his mother, [he shall be free]. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition.
But ye say, Whosoever shall say to [his] father or [his] mother, [It is] a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;
For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and mother: and, He that curseth father or mother, let him die the death.
But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?
Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach [them], the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.
Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.
Then answered Peter and said unto him, Declare unto us this parable.
But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, [even] Christ.
And call no [man] your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, [even] Christ; and all ye are brethren.
And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay [them] on men's shoulders; but they [themselves] will not move them with one of their fingers.
All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, [that] observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
These are [the things] which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding?
If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
