a sign from thee. But he answered and said 39 • Is. 57.3. unto them, “ An evil and adulterous genera

body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is
“ single, thy whole body also is full of light;
“ but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full

light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy 36

no part dark, the whole shall be full of light,

L. 11.
AND as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought

37 him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat. And when the Pharisee saw it, 38 he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner. And the Lord said unto him, “Now 39

“ do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the a Tit. 1.15. cup and the platter; but your inward part

behold, all things are clean unto you. But 42
“ woe unto you, Pharisees ! for ye tithe mint

over judgment and the love of God: these

ought ye to have done, and not to leave the
“ other undone. Woe unto you, Pharisees ! for 43

ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues,
" and greetings in the markets. Woe unto 44

you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites ! for
ye are as graves which appear not, and the

men that walk over them are not aware of
them.Then answered one of the lawyers, 45
and said unto him, Master, thus saying thou
reproachest us also. And he said, “Woe unto 46

you also, ye lawyers ! for ye lade men with
“ burdens grievous to be borne, and ye your-
“ selves touch not the burdens with one of your
