1 Then addressing the crowds and his disciples Jesus said,
Luke 12:1  Matt 15:10-20  Luke 12:57  Luke 20:45-46  Mark 7:14  Mark 12:38-39 

2 'The scribes and the Pharisees occupy the chair of Moses.
Ezra 7:25  Luke 20:46  Mal 2:7  Mark 12:38  Ezra 7:6  Neh 8:4-8 

3 You must therefore do and observe what they tell you; but do not be guided by what they do, since they do not practise what they preach.
2Tim 3:5  Titus 1:16  2Chr 30:12  Acts 5:29  Deut 4:5  Deut 5:27  Deut 17:9-12 

4 They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on people's shoulders, but will they lift a finger to move them? Not they!
Luke 11:46  Acts 15:10  Gal 6:13  Matt 11:28-30  Acts 15:28  Matt 23:23  Rev 2:24 

5 Everything they do is done to attract attention, like wearing broader headbands and longer tassels,
Matt 6:1-16  John 5:44  Deut 6:8  John 12:43  Num 15:38-39  Phil 2:3  Deut 22:12 

6 like wanting to take the place of honour at banquets and the front seats in the synagogues,
Jas 2:1-4  3John 1:9  Luke 11:43-54  Luke 14:7-11  Mark 12:38-39  Luke 20:46-47  Rom 12:10 

7 being greeted respectfully in the market squares and having people call them Rabbi.
John 1:38  John 1:49  John 3:2  John 3:26  John 6:25  John 20:16  Mark 9:5 

8 'You, however, must not allow yourselves to be called Rabbi, since you have only one Master, and you are all brothers.
Jas 3:1  Col 1:1-2  Luke 22:32  Matt 23:10  Matt 26:49  1Cor 1:12-13  1Cor 3:3-5 

9 You must call no one on earth your father, since you have only one Father, and he is in heaven.
Mal 1:6  1John 3:1  Heb 12:9  Job 32:21-22  Rom 8:14-17  1Cor 4:15  2Kgs 2:12 

10 Nor must you allow yourselves to be called teachers, for you have only one Teacher, the Christ.

11 The greatest among you must be your servant.
1Cor 9:19  2Cor 4:5  Gal 5:13  John 13:14-15  Luke 22:26-27  2Cor 11:23  Mark 10:43-44

1Pet 5:5  Jas 4:6  Luke 14:11  Luke 18:14  Matt 18:4  Prov 29:23  Dan 4:37 

13 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut up the kingdom of Heaven in people's faces, neither going in yourselves nor allowing others to go who want to.
Luke 11:52  Matt 23:27  Matt 23:29  Acts 8:1  Matt 23:23  Zech 11:17  2Tim 3:8 


15 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You travel over sea and land to make a single proselyte, and anyone who becomes one you make twice as fit for hell as you are.
Acts 13:43  Acts 2:10  Acts 6:5  Matt 5:22  Acts 13:10  Acts 14:2  Acts 14:19 

16 'Alas for you, blind guides! You say, "If anyone swears by the Temple, it has no force; but anyone who swears by the gold of the Temple is bound."
Matt 15:14  Matt 5:33-35  Matt 23:24  Jas 5:12  John 9:39-41  Matt 23:17  Matt 23:19 

17 Fools and blind! For which is of greater value, the gold or the Temple that makes the gold sacred?
Matt 23:19  Exod 30:26-29  Num 16:38-39  Ps 94:8 

18 Again, "If anyone swears by the altar it has no force; but anyone who swears by the offering on the altar, is bound."

19 You blind men! For which is of greater worth, the offering or the altar that makes the offering sacred?
Exod 29:37  Exod 30:29 

20 Therefore, someone who swears by the altar is swearing by that and by everything on it.

21 And someone who swears by the Temple is swearing by that and by the One who dwells in it.
1Kgs 8:13  Ps 26:8  2Chr 6:2  1Kgs 8:27  2Chr 7:2  Col 2:9  Eph 2:22 

22 And someone who swears by heaven is swearing by the throne of God and by the One who is seated there.
Matt 5:34  Isa 66:1  Ps 11:4  Acts 7:49  Rev 4:2-3 

23 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You pay your tithe of mint and dill and cummin and have neglected the weightier matters of the Law-justice, mercy, good faith! These you should have practised, those not neglected.
Luke 11:42  Mic 6:8  Hos 6:6  1Sam 15:22  Matt 9:13  Matt 22:37-40  Lev 27:30 

24 You blind guides, straining out gnats and swallowing camels!
Matt 19:24  Luke 6:7-10  Matt 7:4  Matt 15:2-6  Matt 27:6-8  John 18:28  John 18:40 

25 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of cup and dish and leave the inside full of extortion and intemperance.
Luke 11:39-40  Matt 15:19-20  Isa 28:7-8  Mark 7:4-13 

26 Blind Pharisee! Clean the inside of cup and dish first so that it and the outside are both clean.
Jas 4:8  2Cor 7:1  Heb 10:22  Ezek 18:31  Isa 55:7  Jer 4:14  Jer 13:27 

27 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs that look handsome on the outside, but inside are full of the bones of the dead and every kind of corruption.
Acts 23:3  Luke 11:44  Isa 58:1-2  Num 19:16

1Sam 16:7  Luke 16:15  Matt 23:5  Heb 4:12-13  Jer 17:9-10  Mark 7:21-23  Matt 12:34-35 

29 'Alas for you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build the sepulchres of the prophets and decorate the tombs of the upright,
Luke 11:47-48  Acts 2:29 

30 saying, "We would never have joined in shedding the blood of the prophets, had we lived in our ancestors' day."
Jer 2:30  Matt 21:35-36  Matt 23:34-35  2Chr 36:15 

31 So! Your own evidence tells against you! You are the children of those who murdered the prophets!
Acts 7:51-52  1Thess 2:15-16  Job 15:5-6  Josh 24:22  Luke 19:22  Ps 64:8 

32 Very well then, finish off the work that your ancestors began.
Gen 15:16  1Thess 2:16  Num 32:14  Zech 5:6-11 

33 'You serpents, brood of vipers, how can you escape being condemned to hell?
Matt 3:7  Matt 12:34  John 8:44  Luke 3:7  Matt 5:22  2Cor 11:3  Gen 3:15 

34 This is why -- look -- I am sending you prophets and wise men and scribes; some you will slaughter and crucify, some you will scourge in your synagogues and hunt from town to town;
Matt 10:16-17  Matt 13:52  Acts 13:1  Col 1:28  Matt 10:23  1Cor 2:6  1Cor 3:10 

35 and so you will draw down on yourselves the blood of every upright person that has been shed on earth, from the blood of Abel the holy to the blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar.
Zech 1:1  Gen 4:8  Heb 11:4  Isa 26:21  Rev 18:24  2Kgs 21:16  2Kgs 24:4 

36 In truth I tell you, it will all recoil on this generation.
Matt 24:34  Matt 10:23  Ezek 12:21-28  Luke 21:32-33  Mark 13:30-31 

37 'Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you that kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to you! How often have I longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you refused!
Ruth 2:12  Matt 5:12  Deut 32:11-12  Luke 13:34-35  Jer 44:4  Jer 6:16-17  Jer 35:15 

38 Look! Your house will be deserted,
Jer 22:5  Luke 21:24  Mark 13:14  1Kgs 9:7  2Chr 7:20-21  Acts 6:13-14  Dan 9:26 

39 for, I promise, you shall not see me any more until you are saying: Blessed is he who is coming in the name of the Lord!'
