    23:1 Then 5119 spake 2980 5656 Jesus 2424 to the multitude 3793, and 2532 to his 846 disciples 3101,

    23:2 Saying 3004 5723, The scribes 1122 and 2532 the Pharisees 5330 sit 2523 5656 in 1909 Moses' 3475 seat 2515:

    23:3 All 3956 therefore 3767 whatsoever 302 3745 they bid 2036 5632 you 5213 observe 5083 5721, [that] observe 5083 5720 and 2532 do 4160 5720; but 1161 do 4160 5720 not 3361 ye after 2596 their 846 works 2041: for 1063 they say 3004 5719, and 2532 do 4160 5719 not 3756.

    23:4 For 1063 they bind 1195 5719 heavy 926 burdens 5413 and 2532 grievous to be borne 1419, and 2532 lay 2007 5719 [them] on 1909 men's 444 shoulders 5606; but 1161 they [themselves] will 2309 5719 not 3756 move 2795 5658 them 846 with one of their 846 fingers 1147.

    23:5 But 1161 all 3956 their 846 works 2041 they do 4160 5719 for 4314 to be seen 2300 5683 of men 444: 1161 they make broad 4115 5719 their 846 phylacteries 5440, and 2532 enlarge 3170 5719 the borders 2899 of their 846 garments 2440,(phylacteries: pieces of parchment containing sentences of the law)

    23:6 And 5037 love 5368 5719 the uppermost rooms 4411 at 1722 feasts 1173, and 2532 the chief seats 4410 in 1722 the synagogues 4864,

    23:7 And 2532 greetings 783 in 1722 the markets 58, and 2532 to be called 2564 5745 of 5259 men 444, Rabbi 4461, Rabbi 4461.

    23:8 But 1161 be 2564 0 not 3361 ye 5210 called 2564 5686 Rabbi 4461: for 1063 one 1520 is 2076 5748 your 5216 Master 2519, [even] Christ 5547; and 1161 all 3956 ye 5210 are 2075 5748 brethren 80.

    23:9 And 2532 call 2564 5661 no 3361 [man] your 5216 father 3962 upon 1909 the earth 1093: for 1063 one 1520 is 2076 5748 your 5216 Father 3962, which 3588 is in 1722 heaven 3772.

    23:10 Neither 3366 be ye called 2564 5686 masters 2519: for 1063 one 1520 is 2076 5748 your 5216 Master 2519, [even] Christ 5547.

    23:11 But 1161 he that is greatest 3187 among you 5216 shall be 2071 5704 your 5216 servant 1249.

    23:12 And 1161 whosoever 3748 shall exalt 5312 5692 himself 1438 shall be abased 5013 5701; and 2532 he 3748 that shall humble 5013 5692 himself 1438 shall be exalted 5312 5701.

    23:13 But 1161 woe 3759 unto you 5213, scribes 1122 and 2532 Pharisees 5330, hypocrites 5273! for 3754 ye shut up 2808 5719 the kingdom 932 of heaven 3772 against 1715 men 444: for 1063 ye 5210 neither 3761 go in 1525 5736 [yourselves], neither 3756 suffer ye 863 5719 them that are entering 1525 5740 to go in 1525 5629.

    23:14 Woe 3759 unto you 5213, scribes 1122 and 2532 Pharisees 5330, hypocrites 5273! for 3754 ye devour 2719 5719 widows' 5503 houses 3614, and 2532 for a pretence 4392 make 4336 0 long 3117 prayer 4336 5740: therefore 1223 5124 ye shall receive 2983 5695 the greater 4055 damnation 2917.

    23:15 Woe 3759 unto you 5213, scribes 1122 and 2532 Pharisees 5330, hypocrites 5273! for 3754 ye compass 4013 5719 sea 2281 and 2532 land 3584 to make 4160 5658 one 1520 proselyte 4339, and 2532 when 3752 he is made 1096 5638, ye make 4160 5719 him 846 twofold more 1362 the child 5207 of hell 1067 than yourselves 5216.

    23:16 Woe 3759 unto you 5213, [ye] blind 5185 guides 3595, which 3588 say 3004 5723, Whosoever 3739 302 shall swear 3660 5661 by 1722 the temple 3485, it is 2076 5748 nothing 3762; but 1161 whosoever 3739 302 shall swear 3660 5661 by 1722 the gold 5557 of the temple 3485, he is a debtor 3784 5719!

    23:17 [Ye] fools 3474 and 2532 blind 5185: for 1063 whether 5101 is 2076 5748 greater 3187, the gold 5557, or 2228 the temple 3485 that sanctifieth 37 5723 the gold 5557?

    23:18 And 2532, Whosoever 3739 1437 shall swear 3660 5661 by 1722 the altar 2379, it is 2076 5748 nothing 3762; but 1161 whosoever 3739 302 sweareth 3660 5661 by 1722 the gift 1435 that is upon 1883 it 846, he is guilty 3784 5719.(guilty: or, debtor, or, bound)

    23:19 [Ye] fools 3474 and 2532 blind 5185: for 1063 whether 5101 [is] greater 3187, the gift 1435, or 2228 the altar 2379 that sanctifieth 37 5723 the gift 1435?

    23:20 Whoso therefore 3767 shall swear 3660 5660 by 1722 the altar 2379, sweareth 3660 5719 by 1722 it 846, and 2532 by 1722 all things 3956 thereon 1883 846.

    23:21 And 2532 whoso shall swear 3660 5660 by 1722 the temple 3485, sweareth 3660 5719 by 1722 it 846, and 2532 by 1722 him that dwelleth 2730 5723 therein 846.

    23:22 And 2532 he that shall swear 3660 5660 by 1722 heaven 3772, sweareth 3660 5719 by 1722 the throne 2362 of God 2316, and 2532 by 1722 him that sitteth 2521 5740 thereon 1883 846.

    23:23 Woe 3759 unto you 5213, scribes 1122 and 2532 Pharisees 5330, hypocrites 5273! for 3754 ye pay tithe 586 5719 of mint 2238 and 2532 anise 432 and 2532 cummin 2951, and 2532 have omitted 863 5656 the weightier 926 [matters] of the law 3551, judgment 2920, 2532 mercy 1656, and 2532 faith 4102: these 5023 ought ye 1163 5713 to have done 4160 5658, and not 3361 to leave 863 0 the other 2548 undone 863 5721.(anise: Gr. dill)

    23:24 [Ye] blind 5185 guides 3595, which strain at 1368 5723 a gnat 2971, and 1161 swallow 2666 5723 a camel 2574.

    23:25 Woe 3759 unto you 5213, scribes 1122 and 2532 Pharisees 5330, hypocrites 5273! for 3754 ye make clean 2511 5719 the outside 1855 of the cup 4221 and 2532 of the platter 3953, but 1161 within 2081 they are full 1073 5719 of 1537 extortion 724 and 2532 excess 192.

    23:26 [Thou] blind 5185 Pharisee 5330, cleanse 2511 5657 first 4412 that [which is] within 1787 the cup 4221 and 2532 platter 3953, that 2443 the outside 1622 of them 846 may be 1096 5638 clean 2513 also 2532.

    23:27 Woe 3759 unto you 5213, scribes 1122 and 2532 Pharisees 5330, hypocrites 5273! for 3754 ye are like 3945 5719 unto whited 2867 5772 sepulchres 5028, which 3748 indeed 3303 appear 5316 5727 beautiful 5611 outward 1855, but 1161 are within 2081 full 1073 5719 of dead 3498 [men's] bones 3747, and 2532 of all 3956 uncleanness 167.

    23:28 Even so 3779 ye 5210 also 2532 3303 outwardly 1855 appear 5316 5743 righteous 1342 unto men 444, but 1161 within 2081 ye are 2075 5748 full 3324 of hypocrisy 5272 and 2532 iniquity 458.

    23:29 Woe 3759 unto you 5213, scribes 1122 and 2532 Pharisees 5330, hypocrites 5273! because 3754 ye build 3618 5719 the tombs 5028 of the prophets 4396, and 2532 garnish 2885 5719 the sepulchres 3419 of the righteous 1342,

    23:30 And 2532 say 3004 5719, If 1487 we had been 2258 5713 in 1722 the days 2250 of our 2257 fathers 3962, we would 302 not 3756 have been 2258 5713 partakers 2844 with them 846 in 1722 the blood 129 of the prophets 4396.

    23:31 Wherefore 5620 ye be witnesses 3140 5719 unto yourselves 1438, that 3754 ye are 2075 5748 the children 5207 of them which killed 5407 5660 the prophets 4396.

    23:32 Fill 4137 0 ye 5210 up 4137 5657 then 2532 the measure 3358 of your 5216 fathers 3962.

    23:33 [Ye] serpents 3789, [ye] generation 1081 of vipers 2191, how 4459 can ye 5343 5632 escape 575 the damnation 2920 of hell 1067?

    23:34 Wherefore 1223 5124, behold 2400 5628, I 1473 send 649 5719 unto 4314 you 5209 prophets 4396, and 2532 wise men 4680, and 2532 scribes 1122: and 2532 [some] of 1537 them 846 ye shall kill 615 5692 and 2532 crucify 4717 5692; and 2532 [some] of 1537 them 846 shall ye scourge 3146 5692 in 1722 your 5216 synagogues 4864, and 2532 persecute 1377 5692 [them] from 575 city 4172 to 1519 city 4172:

    23:35 That 3704 upon 1909 you 5209 may come 2064 5632 all 3956 the righteous 1342 blood 129 shed 1632 5746 upon 1909 the earth 1093, from 575 the blood 129 of righteous 1342 Abel 6 unto 2193 the blood 129 of Zacharias 2197 son 5207 of Barachias 914, whom 3739 ye slew 5407 5656 between 3342 the temple 3485 and 2532 the altar 2379.

    23:36 Verily 281 I say 3004 5719 unto you 5213, All 3956 these things 5023 shall come 2240 5692 upon 1909 this 5026 generation 1074.

    23:37 O Jerusalem 2419, Jerusalem 2419, [thou] that killest 615 5723 the prophets 4396, and 2532 stonest 3036 5723 them which are sent 649 5772 unto 4314 thee 846, how often 4212 would I 2309 5656 have gathered 1996 0 thy 4675 3739 children 5043 together 1996 5629, even as 5158 a hen 3733 gathereth 1996 5719 her 1438 chickens 3556 under 5259 [her] wings 4420, and 2532 ye would 2309 5656 not 3756!

    23:38 Behold 2400 5628, your 5216 house 3624 is left 863 5743 unto you 5213 desolate 2048.

    23:39 For 1063 I say 3004 5719 unto you 5213, Ye shall 1492 0 not 3364 see 1492 5632 me 3165 henceforth 575 737, till 2193 302 ye shall say 2036 5632, Blessed 2127 5772 [is] he that cometh 2064 5740 in 1722 the name 3686 of the Lord 2962.
