Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:7 - and the salutations in the market-places, and to be called by men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:8 - 'And ye -- ye may not be called Rabbi, for one is your director -- the Christ, and all ye are brethren;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:9 - and ye may not call any your father on the earth, for one is your Father, who is in the heavens,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:10 - nor may ye be called directors, for one is your director -- the Christ.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:22 - and he who did swear by the heaven, doth swear by the throne of God, and by Him who is sitting upon it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:23 - 'Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye give tithe of the mint, and the dill, and the cumin, and did neglect the weightier things of the Law -- the judgment, and the kindness, and the faith; these it behoved you to do, and those not to neglect.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:24 - 'Blind guides! who are straining out the gnat, and the camel are swallowing.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:25 - 'Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye make clean the outside of the cup and the plate, and within they are full of rapine and incontinence.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:27 - 'Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye are like to whitewashed sepulchres, which outwardly indeed do appear beautiful, and within are full of bones of dead men, and of all uncleanness;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:28 - so also ye outwardly indeed do appear to men righteous, and within ye are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:29 - 'Wo to you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and adorn the tombs of the righteous,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:30 - 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:35 - that on you may come all the righteous blood being poured out on the earth from the blood of Abel the righteous, unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the sanctuary and the altar:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:36 - verily I say to you, all these things shall come upon this generation.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:37 - 'Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that art killing the prophets, and stoning those sent unto thee, how often did I will to gather thy children together, as a hen doth gather her own chickens under the wings, and ye did not will.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:38 - Lo, left desolate to you is your house;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 23:39 - for I say to you, ye may not see me henceforth, till ye may say, Blessed is he who is coming in the name of the Lord.'
