AND THE LORD SAID: BECAUSE THIS PEOPLE DRAW NEAR WITH THEIR MOUTH AND HONOR ME WITH THEIR LIPS, WHILE THEIR HEARTS ARE FAR FROM ME, AND THEIR FEAR OS ME IS A COMMANDMENT TAUGHT BY HUMANS. ISAIAH 29:13
Matthew 6:1-4- Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father in who is in heaven. Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
Matthew 6:16-18- And when you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
WOE TO YOU, SCRIBES AND PHARISEES, HYPOCRITES! FOR YOU CLEAN THE OUTSIDE OF THE CUP AND THE PLATE, BUT INSIDE THEY ARE FULL OF GREED AND SELF-INDULGENCE. YOU BLIND PHARISEE! FIRST CLEAN THE INSIDE OF THE CUP AND PLATE, THAT THE OUTSIDE ALSO MAY BE CLEAN. WOE TO YOU, SCRIBES AND PHARISEES, HYPOCRITES! FOR YOU ARE LIKE WHITEWASHED TOMBS, WHICH OUTWARDLY APPEAR BEAUTIFUL, BUT WITHIN ARE FULL OF DEAD PEOPLE’S BONES AND UNCLEANNESS. SO YOU ALSO OUTWARDLY APPEAR RIGHTEOUS TO OTHERS, BUT WITHIN YOU ARE FULL OF HYPOCRISY AND LAWLESSNESS. WOE TO YOU, SCRIBES AND PHARISEES, HYPOCRITES! FOR YOU BUILD THE TOMBS OF THE1- PROPHETS AND DECORATE THE MONUMENTS OF THE RIGHTEOUS, SAYING, IF WE HAD LIVED IN THE DAYS OF OUR FATHERS, WE WOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN PART WITH THEM IN SHEDDING THE BLOOD OF THE PROPHETS. THUS YOU WITNESS AGAINST YOURSELVES THAT YOU ARE THE SONS OF THOSE WHO MURDERED THE PROPHETS. FILL UP, THEN, THE MEASURE OF YOUR FATHERS. YOU SERPENTS, YOU BROOD OF VIPERS, HOW ARE YOU TO ESCAPE BEING SENTENCED TO HELL? THEREFORE I SEND YOU PROPHETS AND WISE MEN AND SCRIBES, SOME OF WHOM YOU WILL KILL AND CRUCIFY, AND SOME YOU WILL FLOG IN YOUR SYNAGOGUES AND PERSECUTE FROM TOWN TO TOWN, SO THAT ON YOU MAY COME ALL THE RIGHTEOUS BLOOD SHED ON EARTH, FROM THE BLOOD OF RIGHTEOUS ABEL TO THE BLOOD OF ZECHARIAH THE SON OF BARACHIAH, WHOM YOU MURDERED BETWEEN THE SANCTUARY AND THE ALTAR. TRULY, I SAY TO YOU, ALL THESE THINGS WILL COME UPON THIS GENERATION. MATTHEW 23:25-36
