23 (A)“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For (B)you tithe mint and dill and (C)cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: (D)justice and mercy and faithfulness. (E)These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. 24 You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing (F)a camel!

25 (G)“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For (H)you clean the outside of (I)the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of (J)greed and self-indulgence. 26 You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of (K)the cup and the plate, that the outside also may be clean.

27 (L)“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like (M)whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within are full of dead people's bones and (N)all uncleanness. 28 So you also (O)outwardly appear righteous to others, but within you are full of (P)hypocrisy and lawlessness.
