23:2 “The experts in the law and the Pharisees sit on Moses’ seat.
23:3 Therefore pay attention to what they tell you and do it. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they teach.
23:4 They tie up heavy loads, hard to carry, and put them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing even to lift a finger to move them.
23:5 They do all their deeds to be seen by people, for they make their phylacteries wide and their tassels long.
23:6 They love the place of honor at banquets and the best seats in the synagogues
23:7 and elaborate greetings in the marketplaces, and to have people call them ‘Rabbi.’
