14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! ufor ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one xproselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of yhell than yourselves.

16 Woe unto you, zye blind guides, which say, aWhosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! 17 Ye bfools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or cthe temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by dthe gift that is upon it, he is ||guilty. 19 Ye efools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or fthe altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by ghim that dwelleth therein. 22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by hthe throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon.
