Matthew 23

1  Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

2  Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

3  All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

4  For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

5  But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

6  And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

7  And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

8  But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

9  And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

10  Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
