“Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.”
King James Version (KJV)
23:24 Ye blind guides, who teach others to do as you do yourselves, to strain out a gnat - From the liquor they are going to drink! and swallow a camel - It is strange, that glaring false print, strain at a gnat, which quite alters the sense, should run through all the editions of our English Bibles.
Mt 23:24 Strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. A forcible image of those who are very conscientious over small, and careless of great, matters.
