Matthew 23:29-31

Context

23:29 “Woe to you, experts in the law 1  and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You 2  build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves 3  of the righteous. 23:30 And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, 4  we would not have participated with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 23:31 By saying this you testify against yourselves that you are descendants of those who murdered the prophets.

1 tn Or “scribes.” See the note on the phrase “experts in the law” in 2:4.

2 tn Grk “Because you.” Here ὅτι (Joti) has not been translated.

3 tn Or perhaps “the monuments” (see L&N 7.75-76).

4 tn Grk “fathers” (so also in v. 32).
