11 Revised Standard Version Passage

37While he was speaking, a Pharisee asked him to dine with him; so he went in and sat at table.The Denouncing of the Pharisees and Lawyers Lk.11.37-52 (Judaea) | Mt.23.1-36 | Mk.12.38-40 | Lk.20.45-47
38The Pharisee was astonished to see that he did not first wash before dinner. 
39And the Lord said to him, "Now you Pharisees cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside you are full of extortion and wickedness. 
40You fools! Did not he who made the outside make the inside also? 
41But give for alms those things which are within; and behold, everything is clean for you. 
42"But woe to you Pharisees! for you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect justice and the love of God; these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others. 
43Woe to you Pharisees! for you love the best seat in the synagogues and salutations in the market places. 
44Woe to you! for you are like graves which are not seen, and men walk over them without knowing it." 
45One of the lawyers answered him, "Teacher, in saying this you reproach us also." 
46And he said, "Woe to you lawyers also! for you load men with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers. 
47Woe to you! for you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed. 
48So you are witnesses and consent to the deeds of your fathers; for they killed them, and you build their tombs. 
49Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,' 
50that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation, 
51from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechari'ah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it shall be required of this generation. 
52Woe to you lawyers! for you have taken away the key of knowledge; you did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering."
