Matthew 23-1-12 -ESV---Seven Woes to the Scribes and Pharisees-23-Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, 2--The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat, 3-so do and observe whatever they tell you, but not the works they do. For they preach, but do not practice. 4-They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on people's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. 5-They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, 6-and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues 7-and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi by others. 8-But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers. 9-And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10-Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Christ. 11-The greatest among you shall be your servant. 12-Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
