Matthew 23:16-26

Etheridge(i) 16 Woe to you, ye blind guides, who say, That [to him] who sweareth by the temple, it is nothing; but if he swear by the gold which is in the temple, he is liable! 17 You senseless and blind! for which is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18 And (that) whoever sweareth by the altar, it is nothing; but [if] he swear by the oblation which is upon it, he is liable. 19 You foolish and sightless! for which is greater, the oblation, or the altar that sanctifieth the oblation? 20 He therefore who sweareth by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things that are upon it. 21 And he who sweareth by the temple, sweareth by it, and by whatever abideth in it. 22 And whosoever sweareth by heaven, sweareth by the throne of Aloha, and by Him who sitteth thereon. 23 Woe to you, scribes, Pharishee, hypocrites! because you tithe mint, dill, and cummin, and omit the more grave [requirements] of the law, - justice, benignity, and faithfulness. For these you should have done, and those not omitted. 24 You blind guides, who strain out gnats and swallow camels. 25 Woe to you, scribes and Pharishee, hypocrites! who cleanse the outside of the cup and dish (which) within are full of rapine and injustice. 26 Sightless Pharishee! cleanse first the inside of the cup and the dish, that their outside also may be clean.
