JOHN. .:: CHAP. XI. full of darkness.

35 Take heed therefore, that the light which is in thee be not darkness.

36 If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light; as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.

§ 46. Jesus
sitting at Meat
with a Pharisee,
against the Pha-

and Teachers of
the Law.



C. XI.

37 And as he spake, a certain Pharisee besought him to dine with him: and he went in, and sat down to meat.

38 And when the Pharisee saw it, he marvelled that he had not first washed before dinner.

39 And the Lord saiduntohim, Now do ye Pharisees make clean the outside of the cup and the platter ; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

40 Ye fools, did not he that made



that which is without, make that
which is within also ?

41 But rather give alms of such things as ye have: and behold, all things are clean unto you.

42 But woe unto you Phari-
sees! for ye tithe mint, and rue,
and all manner of herbs, and pass
over judgment and the love of
God : these ought ye to have
done, and not to leave the other

43 Woe unto you, Pharisees !

love the uppermost seats
in the synagogues, and greetings
in the markets.

44 Woe unto 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.

45 | Then answered one of the lawyers, and said unto him, Master, thus saying, thou reproachest us also.

46 And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers.

47 Woe unto you! for ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and your fathers killed them.

48 Truly ye bear witness, that yé allow the deeds of your fathers : for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres.

49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute.





50 That the blood of all the
prophets which were shed from
the foundation of the world, may
be required of this generation ;

51 From the blood of Abel,
unto the blood of Zacharias,
which perished between the altar
and the temple : verily I say unto
you, It shall be required of this

52 Woe unto you, lawyers ! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge : ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in, ye hindered.

53 And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge him ve. hemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things;

54 Laying wait for him, and
seeking to catch something out
of his mouth, that they might
accuse him.

§ 47. Jesus instructs his
Disciples and the Multitude.

IN the mean time when there
were gathered together an in-
numerable multitude of people, *
insomuch that they trode one
upon another, he began to say
unto his disciples first of all,
Beware ye of the leaven of the
Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed ; neither hid, that shall not be known.

3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness, shall
