For them, silenced but unrepentant, no message is left but "woe." Matthew 23:1-39.


Verse 29

ye do err

Or, ye deceive yourselves, etc. Jesus' answer gives the three incapacities of the rationalist: self-deception, Romans 1:21; Romans 1:22 ignorance of the spiritual content of Scripture, Acts 13:27, disbelief in the intervention of divine power, 2 Peter 3:5-9.
