Luke 11:39-40

Context
11:39 But the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees clean 1  the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside you are full of greed and wickedness. 2  11:40 You fools! 3  Didn’t the one who made the outside make the inside as well? 4 

1 sn The allusion to washing (clean the outside of the cup) shows Jesus knew what they were thinking and deliberately set up a contrast that charged them with hypocrisy and majoring on minors.

2 tn Or “and evil.”

3 sn You fools is a rebuke which in the OT refers to someone who is blind to God (Ps 14:1, 53:1; 92:6; Prov 6:12).

4 tn The question includes a Greek particle, οὐ (ou), that expects a positive reply. God, the maker of both, is concerned for what is both inside and outside.
