Matthew 23:1-22
1. Then spake Jesus to the people, and to his disciples,
2. saying: The scribes and the pharisees sit in Moses' seat,
3. (All therefore) whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do: but after their works do not: for they say, and do not.
4. Yea and they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne,(intollerable burthens) and lay them on men's shoulders: but they themselves will not heave (at) them with one (of their) finger.(fingers)
5. All their works they do, for to be seen of men. They set abroad their phylacteries, and make large borders on their garments,
6. and love to sit uppermost at feasts, and to have the chief seats in the synagogues,
7. and greetings(love to be saluted) in the markets and to be called of men Rabbi.
8. But ye shall not suffer yourselves to be called Rabbi, for one is your master, that is to wit Christ, and all ye are brethren.
9. And call ye no man your father upon the earth, for one is(for there is but one) your father, and he is in heaven.
10. Be not called masters, for one is(for there is but one) your master, and he is Christ.
11. He that is greatest among you, shall be your servant.
12. But whosoever exalteth himself, shall be brought low. And he that submiteth(humbleth) himself, shall be exalted.
13. Woe be unto you scribes and pharisees dissemblers,(hypocrites) for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven before men: ye yourselves go not in, neither suffer ye them that come to enter in.
14. Woe be unto you scribes and pharisees, for ye devour widows' houses, and that under a colour of praying long prayers, wherefore ye shall receive greater damnation.
15. Woe be unto you scribes and pharisees hypocrites, for ye(which) compass sea and land, to bring one into your belief:(make one Proselyte) and when ye have brought him(he is brought) ye make him two fold more the child of hell, than ye yourselves are.
16. Woe be unto you blind guides, for ye(which) say: whosoever swear by the temple, it is nothing: but whosoever swear by the gold of the temple, he is debtor.(he offendeth,)(is guilty)
17. Ye fools and blind? whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold.
18. And whosoever sweareth by the altar it is nothing: but whosoever sweareth by the offering that lieth on the altar is debtor.(offendeth,)(guilty)
19. Ye fools and blind: whether is greater the offering, or the altar which sanctifieth the offering?
20. whosoever therefore sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all that thereon is.
21. And whosoever sweareth by the temple sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein.
22. And he that sweareth by heaven, sweareth by the seat of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
