Woe to you, hypocrites,
you've forgotten mercy, justice, and faithfulness
You blind guides!

Cleaned the outside of the dish -
but inside are full of self indulgence,
be cleaned from the inside out!

Woe hypocrites, such whitewashed tombs!
The outside beautiful: full of dead men's bones.

You want to appear righteous,
but you are full of lawlessness.
And you dig the graves of the prophets;
behold I'm sending you prophets and wise men:
some you will kill and crucify!

Woe hypocrites, such whitewashed tombs!
The outside beautiful: full of dead men's bones.

Woe hypocrites
Woe hypocrites
Woe hypocrites

You testify against yourselves!
You serpents, you brood of vipers,
how will you escape the sentence of hell?

For God so loved the world,
He sent His only Son,
whoever believes Jehovah-Jireh! (the Lord will provide)

Woe hypocrites, such whitewashed tombs!
The outside beautiful: full of dead men's bones.

Jehovah-rapha, (the Lord who heals)
Jehovah-nissi, (the Lord our banner)
Jehovah-Shalom, (the Lord our peace)
Jehovah-ra-ah, (the Lord my shepherd)
Jehovah-shammad (the Lord is present)
Jehovah-Elohim (the Lord God)

El Elyon (the most high God)
Adonai (our master)
El Olam (everlasting God)
El Shaddai (Almighty God, Who gives me my strength)

-Matthew 23:23-29
