Matthew 23:16-22New American Standard Bible (NASB)
16 “Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the [a]temple, that is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the [b]temple is obligated.’17 You fools and blind men! Which is [c]more important, the gold or the [d]temple that sanctified the gold?18 And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, that is nothing, but whoever swears by the [e]offering on it, he is obligated.’19 You blind men, which is [f]more important, the [g]offering, or the altar that sanctifies the [h]offering?20 Therefore, [i]whoever swears by the altar, swears both by [j]the altar and by everything on it.21 And [k]whoever swears by the [l]temple, swears both by [m]the temple and by Him who dwells within it.22 And [n]whoever swears by heaven, swears both by the throne of God and by Him who sits upon it.
