Matthew 23
23:1   Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,
23:2   Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
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.
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.
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,
23:6   And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
23:7   And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.
23:8   But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.
23:9   And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.
23:10   Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
23:11   But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
23:12   And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
