ContextWoes to Pharisees and Experts in the Law
37And as he spoke, a certain Pharisee sought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat. 38And when the Pharisee saw it, he marveled that he had not first washed before dinner. 39And the Lord said to him, Now do you Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness. 40You fools, did not he that made that which is without make that which is within also? 41But rather give alms of such things as you have; and, behold, all things are clean to you. 42But woe to you, Pharisees! for you tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 43Woe to you, Pharisees! for you love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets. 44Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them. 45Then answered one of the lawyers, and said to him, Master, thus saying you reproach us also. 46And he said, Woe to you also, you lawyers! for you lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and you yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers. 47Woe to you! for you build the sepulchers of the prophets, and your fathers killed them. 48Truly you bear witness that you allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and you build their sepulchers. 49Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute: 50That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; 51From the blood of Abel to the blood of Zacharias which perished between the altar and the temple: truly I say to you, It shall be required of this generation. 52Woe to you, lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge: you entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in you hindered. 53And as he said these things to them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things: 54Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him.
