in thread Matthew 23:24

“Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.” I thank the Lord God for giving me understanding on this matter. The phrase “strain at a gnat” simply means to “choke” at something as small as a gnat. The verse would simply mean that the Pharisees are on the height of their hypocrisy since they easily choke at a gnat but they can readily swallow a camel.
