Mateus 23

1 Then the Jesus spoke to the crowds and to the disciples of him,

2 saying: Upon the Moses seat sit the scribes and the Pharisees.

3 All therefore, whatever they say to you to observe observe you and do you; according to but the works of them not do you; They say for, and not they do.

4 They bind for burdens heavy and oppressive, and place upon the shoulders of the men; of the and finger of them not they will to move them.

5 All but the works of them they do to the to be seen to the men. They widen and the phylacteries of them, and they enlarge the tufts of the mantles of them;

6 they love and the upper couch in the feasts, and the first seats in the synagogues,

7 and the salutations in the markets, and to be called by the men rabbi, rabbi;

8 You but not may be called rabbi; one for is of you the leader; all but you brethren are.

9 And father not you may call of you on the earth; one for is the Father of you, he in the heavens.

10 Neither be ye called leaders; one for of you is the leader, the Anointed.

11 The but greater of you, shall be of you a servant.

12 Who and shall exalt himself, shall be humbled; and who shall humble himself, shall be exalted.

13 Woe but to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you devour the houses of the widows, and for a show long are praying; through this you shall receive heavier judgment.

14 Woe to you, scribes, and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you shut the kingdom of the heavens in presence of the men; you for not enter, nor the entering you permit to enter.

15 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees hypocrites; because you go about the sea and the dry, to make one proselyte; and when he becomes, you make him a son of Gehenna double of you.

16 Woe to you guides blind, the saying: Whoever may swear by the temple, nothing it is; who but ever may swear by the gold of the temple, he is bound.

17 O fools and blind; which for greater is? the gold, or the temple, that sanctifying the gold?

18 Also; Whoever may swear by altar, nothing it is; who but ever may swear by the gift that upon it, he is bound.

19 O fools and blind; which for greater? the gift, or the altar, that sanctifying the gift?

20 He then answering by the altar swears by it and by all the (things) upon it;

21 and the swearing by the temple, swears by it and by the (one) having inhabited it;

22 and he swearing by the heaven, swears by the throne of the God and by the (one) sitting upon it.

23 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you tithe the mint, and the dill, and the cummin; and pass by the weightier (things) of the law, the justice, and mercy, and the faith. These but it is binding to do, and those not to omit.

24 Guides blind; the straining out the gnat the but camel swallowing down.

25 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, within but they are full of rapine and injustice.

26 O Pharisee blind, cleanse first the inside of the cup and of the dish, that may become also the outside of them clean.

27 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you are like to tombs having been whitened, which without indeed appear beautiful, within but are full of bones of dead and of all uncleanness.

28 So and you without indeed appear to the men just, within but full are of hypocrisy and of lawlessness.

29 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you build the tombs of the prophets, and adorn the monuments of the just,

30 and say: If we had been in the days of the fathers of us, not we had been partakers of them in the blood of the prophets.

31 So that you testify to yourselves, that sons you are of the having killed the prophets.

32 And you fill you the measure of the fathers of you.

33 O serpents, O broods of vipers; how can you flee from the judgment of the Gehenna?

34 Because of this, lo, I send to you prophets, and wise men, and scribes; and out of them you will kill and will crucify, and out of them you will scourge in the synagogues of you and pursue from city to city;

35 so that may come upon you all blood righteous, being shed upon the earth from the blood of Abel the just to the blood of Zecharias a son of Barachias, whom you killed between the temple and the altar.

36 Indeed I say to you, that shall come these (things) all upon the generation this.

37 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killing the prophets, and stoning the having been sent to her; how often I desired to gather the children of thee, what manner gathers a bird the brood of herself under the wings? and not you were willing.

38 Lo, is left to you the house of you a desert.

39 I say for to you: Not not me you may see from now, till you may say: Having been blessed he coming in name of Lord.
