Warning To Beware Of The Scribes

38 In His teaching Jesus said, "Look out for the experts in the law of Moses, who like to walk around in long [flowing] robes and to receive special greetings at the open shopping markets 39 and to occupy the principal seats in the synagogues and the head places at dinner tables. 40 They consume widows' houses [i.e., by foreclosing on them] and [then] cover it up by offering lengthy prayers. These people will receive a more severe judgment."
