Warning Against Hypocrisy

2 But nothing is covered up, which will not come to light, or secret, which will not be made clear. 3 So, whatever you have said in the dark, will come to men's hearing in the light, and what you have said secretly inside the house, will be made public from the house-tops. 4 And I say to you, my friends, Have no fear of those who may put the body to death, and are able to do no more than that.
