 46  "Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes and love greetings in the markets and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts,

 47 Who devour widows' houses, and for a show make long prayers2. They will receive the greater punishment."

2 Beware of ministers and priests who dress in long robes, who take the seats in front of everyone, up on the stage to be seen; who love to be greeted in the world with the title of Dr. or Reverend or Father; who ask, even widows, to give money for their support; who make up from their own minds lengthy prayers, making a show to impress everyone with their godliness. They love the admiration of men, they shall receive the greater punishment.
