You blind fools! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that has made the gold sacred?
And you say, `If any one swears by the altar, it is nothing; but if any one swears by the gift that is on the altar, he is bound by his oath.'
You blind men! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that makes the gift sacred?
So he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by everything on it;
and he who swears by the temple, swears by it and by him who dwells in it;
and he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by him who sits upon it.
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law, justice and mercy and faith; these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.
