37 || And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.

38 And when the Pharisee saw it,he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.

39 And the Lord saiduntohim, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

that which is without, make that
which is within also ?

41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have : and behold, all things are clean unto you.

42 But woe unto you Pharisees ! for ye tithe mint, and rue, . and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

43 Woe unto you, Pharisees! for

ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

44 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites ! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.

45 9 Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying, thou reproachest us also.

46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

48 Truly ye bear witness, that ye allow the deeds of

your

fathers : for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute.

CHAP. XI.
50 That the blood of all the
prophets which were shed from
the foundation of the world, may
be required of this generation;

51 From the blood of Abel,
unto the blood of Zacharias,
which perished between the altar
and the temple : verily I say unto
you, It shall be required of this
generation.

52 Woe unto you, lawyers ! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge : ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in, ye hindered.

53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him ve. hemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things;

54 Laying wait for him, and
seeking to catch something out
of his mouth, that they might
accuse him.

C. XII.
47. Jesus instructs his
Disciples and the Multitude.

IN the mean time when there
were gathered together an in-
numerable multitude of people, *
insomuch that they trode one
upon another, he began to say
unto his disciples first of all,
Beware

ye

of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed ; neither hid, that shall not be known.

3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness, shall

which have spoken in the ear
in closets, shall be proclaimed
upon the house-tops.

4 And I say unto you, my
friends, Be not afraid of them
that kill the body, and after that,
have no more that they can do.

5 But I will forewarn you
whom ye shall fear : Fear him,
which, after he hath killed, hath
power to cast into hell ; yea, I
say unto you, Fear him.
6 Are not five

sparrows

sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

7 But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.Fear not therefore : ye are of more value than many sparrows.

8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God.

9 But he that denieth me before men, shall be denied before the angels of God.

10 And whosoever shall speak a word agsinst the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him : but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven.

11 And when they bring you unto the synagogues, and unto magistrates, and powers, take ye no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall

say :

12 For the Holy Ghost shall
teach
you

in the same hour what
