Luke 11:43-45 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

43 Woe to you Pharisees! You love the seat of honor in synagogues and greetings in marketplaces. 44 Woe to you! You are like unseen graves[a] over which people unknowingly walk.”

45 Then one of the scholars of the law[b] said to him in reply, “Teacher, by saying this you are insulting us too.”

Footnotes:

  1. 11:44 Unseen graves: contact with the dead or with human bones or graves (see Nm 19:16) brought ritual impurity. Jesus presents the Pharisees as those who insidiously lead others astray through their seeming attention to the law.
  2. 11:45 Scholars of the law: see note on Lk 10:25.
