“Ye fooles and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the Temple that sanctifieth the gold?”

King James Version (KJV)

Matthew 23:17

14. Woe vnto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; for yee deuoure widowes houses, and for a pretence make long prayer; therefore ye shall receiue the greater damnation. 15. Woe vnto you Scribes and Pharises, hypocrites; for yee compasse Sea and land to make one Proselyte, and when hee is made, yee make him two fold more the childe of hell then your selues. 16. Woe vnto you, yee blind guides, which say, Whosoeuer shall sweare by the Temple, it is nothing: but whosoeuer shal sweare by the gold of the Temple, he is a debter. 17. Ye fooles and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the Temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18. And whosoeuer shall sweare by the Altar, it is nothing: but whosoeuer sweareth by the gift that is vpon it, he is guiltie. 19. Ye fooles and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the Altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20. Who so therefore shall sweare by the Altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon.
