Woe to you blind guides, who say, Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound. Fools and blind! for which is greater, the gold, or the temple which sanctifies the gold? If a man swears by the altar, it is nothing; but if be swears by the gift which is on it, he is bound. Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift, or the altar which sanctifies the gift?

So that you testify to yourselves that you are children of those who killed the prophets; and you have filled up the measure of your fathers. Serpents, offspring of vipers! How can you escape the judgment of hell?

Hear another parable: There was a man, a householder, who planted a vineyard, and made a hedge around it, and dug a wine vat in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went abroad. And when the time of the fruits approached he sent his servants to the husbandmen to receive his fruits. And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. read more.
Again he sent other servants more than the first; and they treated them in the same manner. And afterwards he sent them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him and take his inheritance. And they took him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him.



And when you fast, be not like the hypocrites, of a sad countenance; for they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to fast. I tell you truly, they have their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head, and wash your face, that you may not appear to men to fast, but to your Father in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you.

When, therefore, the lord of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those husbandmen? They said to him, He will inflict on those men a miserable death, and let out his vineyard to other husbandmen, who will render him the fruits in their seasons. Jesus said to them, Have you never read in the Scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same has become the head of a corner? this is from the Lord, and is wonderful in our eyes? I tell you, therefore, that the kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation yielding its fruits. (Added verse not retained in Sawyer) And the chief priests and Pharisees hearing his parables, knew that he spoke of them; and they sought to take him, but feared the people, because they regarded him as a prophet.

When, therefore, you give in charity, sound not a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do, in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be glorified by men. I tell you truly, they have their reward. But when you give in charity let not your left hand know what your right hand does, that your charity may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you. read more.
And when you pray, be not like the hypocrites; for they love to pray standing in the synagogues, and at the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. I tell you truly, they have their reward. But when you pray enter into your private room, and having shut your door pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret shall reward you. And when you pray use not vain repetitions, as the gentiles do; for they think they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not, therefore, like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

THEN came the scribes and Pharisees from Jerusalem, saying, Why do your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders, for they wash not their hands when they eat bread? And he answered and said to them, Why do you transgress the command of God by your tradition? read more.
For God said, Honor your father and mother; and he that reviles father or mother, let him surely die. But you say, Whoever says to his father or mother what you might be profited with by me is a gift, then he shall not honor his father or his mother; and you have made the law of God of no effect by your tradition. Hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophecy of you, saying; This people honors me with the lips, but their heart is far from me. But in vain do they worship me, teaching teachings and commandments of men.

AND the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to Jesus to try him desired him to show them a sign from heaven. But he answered and said to them, When it is evening you say, It will be fair weather for the sky is red; and in the morning, It will rain to-day for the sky is red and lowering. You know how to distinguish the face of the sky, but you cannot distinguish the signs of the times. read more.
An evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign; and no sign shall be given it except the sign of Jonah. And he left them and departed. And when his disciples came to the other side they forgot to take bread. And Jesus said to them, Observe and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees. But they reasoned within themselves, saying, It is because we have not taken bread. But Jesus knowing it, said, Why do you reason within yourselves, men of little faith, because you have not taken bread? Do you not yet understand nor remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many travelling-baskets you took up? nor the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many store-baskets you took up? Why do you not understand that I spoke to you not of bread, to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees? Then they understood that he did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

saying, The scribes and Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. All things therefore which they tell you, do and keep. But do not their works. For they say and do not, but bind heavy burdens and put them on the shoulders of men, but will not move them with their finger. read more.
And they do all their works to be seen by men. For they make broad their prayer fillets, and enlarge the fringes, and love the first tables at feasts, and the first seats in the synagogues, and salutations in the markets, and to be called by men, Rabbi. But do not you be called Rabbi; For one is your teacher, and you are all brothers. And call no man your father on the earth, for one is your heavenly Father. Neither be called leaders, for one is your leader, the Christ. But the greatest of you shall be your servant, and whoever exalts himself shall be humbled, and he that humbles himself shall be exalted. But woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven before men; for you enter not into it, neither do you suffer those entering to go in. (Added verse not retained in Sawyer) Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you compass the sea and the dry land to make one proselyte; and when he is gained you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves. Woe to you blind guides, who say, Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound. Fools and blind! for which is greater, the gold, or the temple which sanctifies the gold? If a man swears by the altar, it is nothing; but if be swears by the gift which is on it, he is bound. Fools and blind! For which is greater, the gift, or the altar which sanctifies the gift? He then that swears by the altar, swears by it, and by all things on it; and he that swears by the temple, swears by it, and by him that inhabits it; and he that swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God, and by him that sits on it. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, and anise, and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law, justice, mercy, and faith. These you ought to do, and not neglect the others. Blind guides! who strain out a gnat and swallow down a camel. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and platter, but within they are full of plunder and excess. Blind Pharisee! cleanse first that which is in the cup and platter, that its outside may be clean also. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs, which appear fair without, but within are full of the bones of the dead and of all impurity. So also you on the outside appear just to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness. Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and adorn the tombs of the righteous, and say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. So that you testify to yourselves that you are children of those who killed the prophets; and you have filled up the measure of your fathers. Serpents, offspring of vipers! How can you escape the judgment of hell?

AND he cast out a demon, and it was dumb. And when the demon had gone out, the dumb spoke; and the multitudes wondered. But some of them said, He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the ruler of demons; and others, trying him, asked of him a sign from heaven. read more.
But he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself is desolated, and house falls upon house. And if Satan is divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because you say that I cast out demons by Beelzebul. But if I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? they, therefore, shall be your judges. But if by a finger of God I cast out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. When a strong man armed keeps his court, his goods are in peace; but when a stronger man than he comes upon him, and overcomes him, he takes away all his arms in which he trusted, and distributes his spoils. He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathers not with me scatters. When an impure spirit has gone out of a man, it passes through places destitute of water, seeking a rest; and not finding one, says, I will return to my house from which I came out. And coming, it finds it swept and adorned. Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more evil than itself; and they come and dwell there; and the last condition of that man is worse than the first. And when he was saying these things, a certain woman from the multitude lifted up her voice, and said to him, Blessed is the mother that bore you, and the breasts which you nursed! And he said, Yes indeed, blessed are those that hear the word of God and keep it. And multitudes being assembled, he said, This generation is an evil generation. It seeks for a sign, and no sign shall be given it but the sign of Jonah. For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so also shall the Son of man be to this generation. The queen of the south shall rise in the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, a greater than Solomon is here. The men of Nineveh shall arise in the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they changed their minds at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, a greater than Jonah is here. No one lights a candle and puts it in a secret place, or under a modius [1.916 gallon measure], but on a candlestick, that all who go in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye; when, therefore, your eye is sound, your whole body is light; but when your eye is evil, your whole body is dark. See, therefore, that the light which is in you be not darkness. If, therefore, your whole body is light, not having any part dark, the whole will be light, as when a candle lights you clearly. And when he was speaking, a certain Pharisee asked him to breakfast with him; and he went in and immediately sat down. And the Pharisee seeing him, wondered that he was not first baptized before breakfast. And the Lord said to him, Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and plate, but your inside is full of plunder and wickedness. Senseless men! did not he that made the outside make also the inside? But give the things within in charity, and behold, all things are pure to you. But woe to you, Pharisees! for you tithe mint, and rue, and every kind of plant, and omit justice and the love of God. These things you ought to do, and not to omit those. Woe to you, Pharisees! for you love the first seat in the synagogues, and salutations in the markets. Woe to you! for you are like concealed tombs; and men walk over them and know it not. And one of the lawyers answered and said to him, Teacher, in saying these things you reproach us also. And he said, Woe to you, lawyers! for you load men with burdens difficult to be borne, and you yourselves will not touch the burdens with one of your fingers. Woe to you! for you build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers killed them; therefore you are witnesses, and approve the deed of your fathers; for they killed them, and you build. Therefore also the wisdom of God said, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall kill and persecute, that the blood of all the prophets which has been poured out since the foundation of the world may be required of this generation, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zachariah, who perished between the altar and the house. Yes, I tell you, it shall be required of this generation. Woe to you, lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge; you do not enter in yourselves, and you forbid those entering. And when he had gone out thence the scribes and Pharisees were extremely angry, and questioned him on many subjects, watching him, to catch something from his mouth.

AND all the publicans and sinners came near him to hear him. And both the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, This man receives sinners and eats with them. And he spoke to them this parable; saying, read more.
What man of you having a hundred sheep, and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the lost sheep till he finds it. And finding it, he puts it on his shoulders rejoicing; and coming to the house, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying, Congratulate me; for I have found my sheep that was lost. So, I tell you, there shall be joy in heaven over one sinner that changes his mind, more than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need a change of mind. Or what woman having ten drachmas [140 cents], if she loses one drachma [14 cents], does not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek carefully till she finds it? And when she finds it, she calls her female friends and neighbors together, saying, Congratulate me, for I have found the drachma which I lost.


Hear another parable: There was a man, a householder, who planted a vineyard, and made a hedge around it, and dug a wine vat in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went abroad.

When, therefore, the lord of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those husbandmen? They said to him, He will inflict on those men a miserable death, and let out his vineyard to other husbandmen, who will render him the fruits in their seasons.

And again he sent another servant to them, and they wounded him on the head, and treated him shamefully. And he sent another, and they killed him; and many others, and they beat some, and killed some. Having yet one beloved son, he sent him last to them, saying, They will reverence my son. But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours. And seizing him, they killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. What will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy those husbandmen, and let the vineyard to others.

For the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who went out early in the morning to hire laborers in his vineyard. And agreeing with the laborers for a denarius [14 cents] a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And going out about the third hour, he saw others standing idle in the market; read more.
and he said to them, go also into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you. And they went. Again going out about the sixth and ninth hours, he did likewise. And going out about the eleventh hour he found others standing, and said to them, Why stand you all the day idle? They said to him, Because no man has hired us. He said to them, Go also into the vineyard. And when it was evening the lord of the vineyard said to his steward, Call the laborers, and pay them the wages [stipulated], beginning from the last even to the first. And those who came about the eleventh hour, received a denarius [14 cents] each. And those who came first supposed that they should receive more. And they also received a denarius [14 cents] each; and when they had received it, they complained of the householder, saying, These last have worked but one hour, and you have made them equal with us, who have borne the burden and heat of the day. But he answered and said to one of them, Neighbor, I do you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius [14 cents]? Take what belongs to you, and go, for I will give to the last even as to you. Is it not right for me to do what I will with my own? Is your eye evil because I am good? So the last shall be first, and the first last.

And he spoke this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. And he said to his vine dresser, Behold, I have come three years seeking fruit on this fig tree and find none; cut it down; why should it make the ground unproductive? And he answered and said to him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I dig about it, and put on manure; read more.
and if it bears fruit, well; but if not, at a future time you shall cut it down.
