Pharisaism Exposed1 a Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, 2 saying: b “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; 3 therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them. 4 c “They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. 5 “But they do all their deeds d to be noticed by men; for they e broaden their ▼
▼ I.e. small cases containing Scripture texts worn on the left arm and forehead for religious purposesphylacteries and lengthen g the tassels of their garments. 6 “They h love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called i Rabbi by men. 8 “But j do not be called k Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 “Do not call anyone on earth your father; for l One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10 “Do not be called ▼
▼ Or teachersleaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. 11 n “But the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 o “Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.
Eight Woes13 p “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites q because you shut off the kingdom of heaven ▼
▼ Lit in front offrom ▼
▼ Gr anthropoipeople; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. 14 [ ▼
▼ This v not found in early mss“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because u you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation.] 15 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel around on sea and land to make one ▼
▼ Or convert, w proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of ▼
▼ Gr Gehenna, y hell as yourselves. 16 “Woe to you, z blind guides, who say, ‘ aa Whoever swears by the ▼ temple, that is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the ▼ temple is obligated.’ 17 “You fools and blind men! ad Which is ▼
▼ Lit greatermore important, the gold or the ▼ temple that sanctified the gold? 18 “And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, that is nothing, but whoever swears by the ▼ offering on it, he is obligated.’ 19 “You blind men, ah which is ▼
▼ Lit greatermore important, the ▼ offering, or the altar that sanctifies the ▼ offering? 20 “Therefore, ▼ whoever swears by the altar, swears both by ▼
▼ Lit itthe altar and by everything on it. 21 “And ▼ whoever swears by the ▼ temple, swears both by ▼
▼ Lit itthe temple and by Him who aq dwells within it. 22 “And ▼ whoever swears by heaven, as swears both by the throne of God and by Him who sits upon it. 23 at “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and ▼
▼ Similar to caraway seedscummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others. 24 “You av blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel! 25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For aw you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full ▼
▼ Or as a result ofof robbery and self-indulgence. 26 “You blind Pharisee, first ay clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also. 27 az “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. 28 “So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. 29 ba “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, 30 and say, ‘If we had been living in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 “So you testify against yourselves, that you bb are ▼
▼ Or descendantssons of those who murdered the prophets. 32 “Fill up, then, the measure of the guilt of your fathers. 33 “You serpents, bd you brood of vipers, how ▼
▼ Lit wouldwill you escape the ▼

Lament over Jerusalem37 br “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who bs kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together bt the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. 38 “Behold, bu your house is being left to you desolate! 39 “For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘ bv Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’”
