pay tithe of mint, & annese, & cummim; & have omitted the waighter things of the law, & of Judgement, mercy & faith; these ought ye to have done, & not to leave the other undone. You blind guides, who strain at a gnat, & swallow a Camel; who make yourselves appear unto men that you would not commit the least sin, & yet you yourselves transg<​8​> ress the whole Law. <​8/​> Wo! unto you, Scribes & Pharisees, hypocrites! For you make clean the out side of the cup, & of the Platter; but within they are full of extortion, & excess. You blind Pharisees, cleanse first the cup & platter within, that the outside of them may be clean also. <​9/​> Wo! unto you, Scribes & Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like unto whited Sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward<​ly,​> but are within, full of the bones of the dead & of all uncleanness; even so, you also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within you are full of <​10/​> hypocracy & iniquity. <​10/​> Wo! unto you, scribes & pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the Prophets, & garnish the Sepulchres of the righteous, & say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakes <​partakers​> with them in the blood of the Prophets. Wherefore, you are witnesses unto yourselves, of your own wickedness; & you are the children of them who killed the prophets; & will fill up the measure then of your fathers; for you yourselves kill the Prophets like unto your fathers. <​11/​> You serpents, & generation of vipers, how can you escape the damnation of Hell? Wherefore behold, I send unto you Prophets, & wise men, & Scribes; & of them you shall kill & crusify; & of them you shall scourge in your Synegouges & persecute from City to City, that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the Earth, from the blood of righteous Abel, unto the blood of Zacharius, Son of Borachius, whom <​12/​> ye slew between the Temple & the Altar. <​12/​> Verily I say unto you, all these things shall come upon this generation. You bear testimony against your fathers, when you yourselves are partakers of the same wickedness. Behold your fathers done it through ignerance, but you do not; where <​13/​> fore their sins shall be upon your heads. <​13/​> Then Jesus began to weep over Jerusalem, saying, O Jerusalem! Jerusalem! You who will kill the Prophets, & will stone them who are sent unto you; how often would I have gethered your children under <​together​>, even as a hen gethereth <​gatheres​> her chickeens under her wings, & you would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, that you shall not see me hence forth, & know & kow that I am he of whom it is written by the Prophets, until you shall say, Blessed is he who cometh in the name of the Lord, in the clouds of Heaven, & all the Holy Angels with him.
