Matthew 23

Mat 23:1 Then Jesus spoke to the crowd and to his disciples:
Mat 23:2 “The scripture scholars and Pharisees teach authoritatively on behalf of Moses,
Mat 23:3 but you must do what they say, not what they do! They don’t practice what they preach.
Mat 23:4 They place unbearably heavy loads on people’s shoulders, but they are not willing to lift a finger to help.
Mat 23:5 “Everything they do is for show. They wear oversized amulets and put extra-wide hems on their cloaks to hold them.
Mat 23:6 They love the seats of honor at banquets and the most prominent seats in the synagogues,
Mat 23:7 and to be greeted in the marketplace by people calling them ‘Rabbi’.
Mat 23:8 But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi’, for you have only one Teacher and you are all brothers and sisters.
Mat 23:9 And you are not to call anyone on earth ‘Father’, because you have only one Father in heaven.
Mat 23:10 Don’t even be called ‘Leader’, since you have only one Leader, the Anointed.
Mat 23:11 Instead, whoever wants to be great among you must be the servant;
Mat 23:12 whoever promotes themselves will be humiliated; whoever humbles themselves will be promoted.
Mat 23:13 “Woe to you, scripture scholars and Pharisees, you pedants! You lock up the kingdom of the heavens to keep people from entering, and you won’t even go in yourselves!
Mat 23:14
Mat 23:15 “Woe to you, scripture scholars and Pharisees, you pedants! You travel over land and sea to win one convert, but when you succeed, you turn that person into twice as much a citizen of Gehenna as you are!
Mat 23:16 “Woe to you, blind guides! You say that whoever swears an oath by the temple is not bound to it, but if they swear by the gold in the temple they are bound.
Mat 23:17 Blind fools! Which is greater, the gold or the temple that consecrates the gold?
Mat 23:18 And the same with the altar and the gift on it:
Mat 23:19 which is greater? How can you be so blind?
Mat 23:20 Whoever swears an oath by the altar also swears by everything on it;
Mat 23:21 whoever swears by the temple also swears by everything in it, including God who lives there;
Mat 23:22 whoever swears by heaven also swears by the throne of God and the God who sits there.
Mat 23:23 “Woe to you, scripture scholars and Pharisees, you pedants! You are careful to tithe your little herbs: mint, dill, and cumin, yet you abandon the weightier matters of the law: discernment, compassion, and faith. You must do both!
Mat 23:24 Blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel!
Mat 23:25 “Woe to you, scripture scholars and Pharisees, you pedants! You clean the outside of the cup and plate, but inside they are saturated with robbery and lack of self-control.
Mat 23:26 Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup before you clean the outside.
Mat 23:27 “Woe to you, scripture scholars and Pharisees, you pedants! You are like decorated graves that look beautiful on the outside, but the inside is filled with the bones of the dead and everything unclean.
Mat 23:28 In the same way, you appear to people as righteous, but on the inside you are saturated with pedantry and lawlessness.
Mat 23:29 “Woe to you, scripture scholars and Pharisees, you pedants! You build up the graves of the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous,
Mat 23:30 and you say, ‘If we had lived in those days, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’
Mat 23:31 So you testify against yourselves, because you admit that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets.
Mat 23:32 Then finish what they started!
Mat 23:33 Snakes! Pits of vipers! How will you escape the judgment of Gehenna?
Mat 23:34 “So now, look! I am sending you prophets and wise people and scripture scholars. But you will kill and crucify some of them, and you will flog others in your synagogues and chase them from city to city.
Mat 23:35 For this reason, the blood of all the righteous will be on your hands, from righteous Abel to Zechariah son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar.
Mat 23:36 I can assure you that all of these things will fall upon this generation!
Mat 23:37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you! How many times have I wanted to gather your children as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you wouldn’t have it!
Mat 23:38 Now look, your temple is abandoned and deserted.
Mat 23:39 For I tell you that you will never see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Master.’ ”
Mat 23:1 τοτε ὁ ιησους ελαλησεν τοις οχλοις και τοις μαθηταις αυτου
Mat 23:2 λεγων επι της μωϋσεως καθεδρας εκαθισαν οἱ γραμματεις και οἱ φαρισαιοι
Mat 23:3 παντα ουν ὁσα εαν ειπωσιν ὑμιν ποιησατε και τηρειτε κατα δε τα εργα αυτων μη ποιειτε λεγουσιν γαρ και ου ποιουσιν
Mat 23:4 δεσμευουσιν δε φορτια βαρεα και δυσβαστακτα και επιτιθεασιν επι τους ωμους των ανθρωπων αυτοι δε τω δακτυλω αυτων ου θελουσιν κινησαι αυτα
Mat 23:5 παντα δε τα εργα αυτων ποιουσιν προς το θεαθηναι τοις ανθρωποις πλατυνουσιν γαρ τα φυλακτηρια αυτων και μεγαλυνουσιν τα κρασπεδα
Mat 23:6 φιλουσιν δε την πρωτοκλισιαν εν τοις δειπνοις και τας πρωτοκαθεδριας εν ταις συναγωγαις
Mat 23:7 και τους ασπασμους εν ταις αγοραις και καλεισθαι ὑπο των ανθρωπων ῥαββι
Mat 23:8 ὑμεις δε μη κληθητε ῥαββι εἱς γαρ εστιν ὑμων ὁ διδασκαλος παντες δε ὑμεις αδελφοι εστε
Mat 23:9 και πατερα μη καλεσητε ὑμων επι της γης εἱς γαρ εστιν ὑμων ὁ πατηρ ὁ ουρανιος
Mat 23:10 μηδε κληθητε καθηγηται ὁτι καθηγητης ὑμων εστιν εἱς ὁ χριστος
Mat 23:11 ὁ δε μειζων ὑμων εσται ὑμων διακονος
Mat 23:12 ὁστις δε ὑψωσει ἑαυτον ταπεινωθησεται και ὁστις ταπεινωσει ἑαυτον ὑψωθησεται
Mat 23:13 ουαι δε ὑμιν γραμματεις και φαρισαιοι ὑποκριται ὁτι κλειετε την βασιλειαν των ουρανων εμπροσθεν των ανθρωπων ὑμεις γαρ ουκ εισερχεσθε ουδε τους εισερχομενους αφιετε εισελθειν
Mat 23:14 noword
Mat 23:15 ουαι ὑμιν γραμματεις και φαρισαιοι ὑποκριται ὁτι περιαγετε την θαλασσαν και την ξηραν ποιησαι ἑνα προσηλυτον και ὁταν γενηται ποιειτε αυτον υἱον γεεννης διπλοτερον ὑμων
Mat 23:16 ουαι ὑμιν ὁδηγοι τυφλοι οἱ λεγοντες ὁς αν ομοση εν τω ναω ουδεν εστιν ὁς δ᾽ αν ομοση εν τω χρυσω του ναου οφειλει
Mat 23:17 μωροι και τυφλοι τις γαρ μειζων εστιν ὁ χρυσος η ὁ ναος ὁ ἁγιασας τον χρυσον
Mat 23:18 και ὁς αν ομοση εν τω θυσιαστηριω ουδεν εστιν ὁς δ᾽ αν ομοση εν τω δωρω τω επανω αυτου οφειλει
Mat 23:19 τυφλοι τι γαρ μειζον το δωρον η το θυσιαστηριον το ἁγιαζον το δωρον
Mat 23:20 ὁ ουν ομοσας εν τω θυσιαστηριω ομνυει εν αυτω και εν τοις επανω αυτου
Mat 23:21 και ὁ ομοσας εν τω ναω ομνυει εν αυτω και εν τω κατοικουντι αυτον
Mat 23:22 και ὁ ομοσας εν τω ουρανω ομνυει εν τω θρονω του θεου και εν τω καθημενω επανω αυτου
Mat 23:23 ουαι ὑμιν γραμματεις και φαρισαιοι ὑποκριται ὁτι αποδεκατουτε το ἡδυοσμον και το ανηθον και το κυμινον και αφηκατε τα βαρυτερα του νομου την κρισιν και το ελεος και την πιστιν ταυτα δε εδει ποιησαι κακεινα μη αφιεναι
Mat 23:24 ὁδηγοι τυφλοι οἱ διϋλιζοντες τον κωνωπα την δε καμηλον καταπινοντες
Mat 23:25 ουαι ὑμιν γραμματεις και φαρισαιοι ὑποκριται ὁτι καθαριζετε το εξωθεν του ποτηριου και της παροψιδος εσωθεν δε γεμουσιν εξ ἁρπαγης και ακρασιας
Mat 23:26 φαρισαιε τυφλε καθαρισον πρωτον το εντος του ποτηριου ἱνα γενηται και το εκτος αυτου καθαρον
Mat 23:27 ουαι ὑμιν γραμματεις και φαρισαιοι ὑποκριται ὁτι παρομοιαζετε ταφοις κεκονιαμενοις οἱτινες εξωθεν μεν φαινονται ὡραιοι εσωθεν δε γεμουσιν οστεων νεκρων και πασης ακαθαρσιας
Mat 23:28 οὑτως και ὑμεις εξωθεν μεν φαινεσθε τοις ανθρωποις δικαιοι εσωθεν δε εστε μεστοι ὑποκρισεως και ανομιας
Mat 23:29 ουαι ὑμιν γραμματεις και φαρισαιοι ὑποκριται ὁτι οικοδομειτε τους ταφους των προφητων και κοσμειτε τα μνημεια των δικαιων
Mat 23:30 και λεγετε ει. ημεθα εν ταις ἡμεραις των πατερων ἡμων ουκ αν ημεθα αυτων κοινωνοι εν τω αἱματι των προφητων
Mat 23:31 ὡστε μαρτυρειτε ἑαυτοις ὁτι υἱοι εστε των φονευσαντων τους προφητας
Mat 23:32 και ὑμεις πληρωσατε το μετρον των πατερων ὑμων
Mat 23:33 οφεις γεννηματα εχιδνων πως φυγητε απο της κρισεως της γεεννης
Mat 23:34 δια τουτο ιδου εγω αποστελλω προς ὑμας προφητας και σοφους και γραμματεις εξ αυτων αποκτενειτε και σταυρωσετε και εξ αυτων μαστιγωσετε εν ταις συναγωγαις ὑμων και διωξετε απο πολεως εις πολιν
Mat 23:35 ὁπως ελθη εφ᾽ ὑμας παν αἱμα δικαιον εκχυννομενον επι της γης απο του αἱματος αβελ του δικαιου ἑως του αἱματος ζαχαριου υἱου βαραχιου ὁν εφονευσατε μεταξυ του ναου και του θυσιαστηριου
Mat 23:36 αμην λεγω ὑμιν ἡξει ταυτα παντα επι την γενεαν ταυτην
Mat 23:37 ιερουσαλημ ιερουσαλημ ἡ αποκτεινουσα τους προφητας και λιθοβολουσα τους απεσταλμενους προς αυτην ποσακις ηθελησα επισυναγαγειν τα τεκνα σου ὁν τροπον ορνις επισυναγει τα νοσσια αυτης ὑπο τας πτερυγας και ουκ ηθελησατε
Mat 23:38 ιδου αφιεται ὑμιν ὁ οικος ὑμων ερημος
Mat 23:39 λεγω γαρ ὑμιν ου μη με ιδητε απ᾽ αρτι ἑως αν ειπητε ευλογημενος ὁ ερχομενος εν ονοματι κυριου
