an example from matthew chapter 23 16. Woe unto you, he blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! 17. Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18. And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19. Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? 22. And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. 26. Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and the platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 28. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
