Bible: Mark 12:38-40

Warnings About Experts in the Law

12:38 In his teaching Jesus 1  also said, “Watch out for the experts in the law. 2  They like walking 3  around in long robes and elaborate greetings 4  in the marketplaces, 12:39 and the best seats in the synagogues 5  and the places of honor at banquets. 12:40 They 6  devour widowsproperty, 7  and as a show make long prayers. These men will receive a more severe punishment.”
