23:15 “Woe to you, experts in the law 5 and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You cross land and sea to make one convert, 6 and when you get one, 7 you make him twice as much a child of hell 8 as yourselves!
23:23 “Woe to you, experts in the law 9 and you Pharisees, hypocrites! You give a tenth 10 of mint, dill, and cumin, 11 yet you neglect what is more important in the law – justice, mercy, and faithfulness! You 12 should have done these things without neglecting the others.

[23:15] 8 tn Grk “a son of Gehenna.” Expressions constructed with υἱός (Juios) followed by a genitive of class or kind denote a person belonging to the class or kind specified by the following genitive (L&N 9.4). Thus the phrase here means “a person who belongs to hell.”
[23:23] 12 tc ‡ Many witnesses (B C K L W Δ 0102 33 565 892 pm) have δέ (de, “but”) after ταῦτα (tauta, “these things”), while many others lack it (א D Γ Θ Ë1,13 579 700 1241 1424 pm).

NA27 includes the word in brackets, indicating doubts as to its authenticity.
