MAT 23:2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
MAT 23:3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe
and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.
MAT 23:4 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.
MAT 23:5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make
broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
MAT 23:6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in
MAT 23:7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi,
