It is not.

Matthew 23:24 You blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.

Luke 6:7-9 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal …

John 18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas to the hall of judgment: and it …

to put.

Deuteronomy 23:18 You shall not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into …

Isaiah 61:8 For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; …

because. The Jews considered it was strictly forbidden by the Divine law to bring any filthy or iniquitous gain into the temple. For this reason they now refused to allow this money to be placed in the chest in the temple, amongst the former contributions for its repairs. In this, they were right enough, but by the very act of refusing this money, they proved themselves to be gross perverters of the spirit of God's requirements: they saw not that it was much less lawful for them, who had hired Judas to this sordid action, to be employed in the service of the temple. Those that 'bear the vessels of the Lord,' ought to be holy. Thus our Lord's words, 'Ye blind guides! ye strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.'
