St. John the Baptist said.
And seeing many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them: Ye brood of vipers, who hath shewed you to flee from the wrath to come?
He said therefore to the multitudes that went forth to be baptized by him: Ye brood of vipers, who hath shewed you to flee from the wrath to come?
But the multiplied brood of the wicked shall not thrive, and bastard slips shall not take deep root, nor any fast foundation.
O generation of vipers, how can you speak good things, whereas you are evil? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
You serpents, generation [brood] of vipers, how will you flee from the judgment of hell?
A Psalm of David, for the Fourth Day of the Week, 93.
The Lord is the God of vengeances; the God of vengeances hath spoken openly. Be Thou exalted, O Thou that judgest the earth; render the proud their due. How long shall sinners, O Lord, how long shall sinners boast? How long shall they utter and speak unrighteousness, how long shall they speak, all they that work iniquity? Thy people, O Lord, have they brought low, and to Thine inheritance have they done hurt. Widow and orphan have they slain, and the proselyte have they murdered. And they said: The Lord shall not see it, nor will the God of Jacob perceive it. Understand then, ye mindless ones among the people; and ye fools, at length be wise. He that planted the ear, shall He not hear? Or He that formed the eye, doth He not perceive? He that chasteneth the heathen, shall He not rebuke? He that teacheth man knowledge? The Lord knoweth the thoughts of men, that they are vain. Blessed is the man whom Thou shalt chasten, O Lord; and out of Thy law shalt Thou instruct him, That Thou mayest give him rest from evil days, until a pit be dug for the sinner. For the Lord will not cast off His people, nor will He forsake His inheritance, Until righteousness return unto judgement, and all that are upright of heart be nigh thereto. Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? Or who will stand up with me against the workers of iniquity? Unless the Lord had brought me help, my soul had well nigh sojourned in hades. Whenever I said: My foot hath slipped; Thy mercy, O Lord, brought help unto me. According to the multitude of my sorrows in my heart, Thy consolations brought gladness unto my soul. Let not the throne of iniquity have fellowship with Thee, which maketh mischief in the name of the law. They shall hunt down the soul of the righteous man, and the innocent blood shall they condemn. Yea, the Lord is become my refuge, and my God the helper of my hope. And the Lord shall give back to them their own iniquity, and according to their wickedness the Lord God shall make them to be seen no more.

Masons. An international fraternal organization which dates in its present form from the first quarter of the 18th century, and claims connection with similar organizations of pre-Christian times. They state their aim as “work for the welfare of mankind” and claim to “strive morally to ennoble themselves and others and thereby to bring about a universal league of mankind.”
Catholics are forbidden under pain of excommunication to belong to the Masons. In the beginning, the Masons were largely anticlerical and were guilty of secret and open plotting against the Church and against civil governments. Masonry is also objectionable to Catholics because it is a religion of pure naturalism. Masons have their own beliefs about God, human morality, and the human soul. Moreover, they have their own religious rites. Catholicism, the uniquely true religion founded by Christ, therefore, is irreconcilable with Masonry.

They were Jewish scholars who collected and arranged the editorial work on the Hebrew Bible which had been done by their predecessors. They also placed a system of vowel signs in and around the Hebrew consonants, which until then had been written without vowels. This work facilitated the reading of Hebrew. The Hebrew text was henceforth called the Massoretic text. [This work and what it extended from, begun by the first century A.D. Anti-Christian Rabbinic academies in
Blasphemy against the Spirit not forgiven

Gospel of Saint Matthew, Chapter 12
22 The there was brought to him [Jesus Christ] a possessed man who was blind and dumb; and he cured him so that he spoke and saw. 23 And all the crowds were amazed, and they said, “Can this be the Son of David?” 24 But the Pharisees, hearing this, said, “This man does not cast out devils except by Beelzebub, the prince of devils.”
Christ refutes them
25 And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. 26 And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand? 27 And if I cast out devils by Beelzebub, by whom do your children cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the
Blasphemy against the Spirit not forgiven
31 “Therefore I say to you, that every kind of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven to men; but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. 32 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this world or in the world to come. 33 Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for by the fruit the tree is known. You brood of vipers, how can you speak good things, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 The good man from his good treasure brings forth good things; and the evil man from his evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I tell you, that of every idle word men speak, they shall give account on the day of judgment. 37 For by thy words thou wilt be justified, and by thy words thou wilt be condemned.”

VER. 32. The sin against the Holy Spirit is to ascribe to the devil the works of the Holy Spirit. One who thus attacks directly this source of all grace, rejects the source of salvation. It is morally impossible that he should ever meet the conditions for absolution.
VER. 36. An idle word is one which profits neither the speaker nor the hearer. If the word is merely useless, its utterance is not seriously wrong. But every deliberate human act has a moral value and will be rewarded or punished.

Because of some references to a “temple” in Silo in the days of the Judges, presided over by the priest Heli (1 Kings 1:9; 3:3), it has been supposed that there was an actual permanent temple there before the building of the Temple by Solomon. But this is not certain. The “temple” at Silo may have been nothing more than the Tabernacle set up in some semi-permanent form. (See Tabernacle.)
What is certain is that the Bible makes mention of four

From the basic notion, mentioned above, that the Temple was primarily regarded as God’s house on earth, it is easy to understand the frequent metaphorical use of the word temple in the New Testament, such as when Saint Paul says that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19).

Testament. Primarily a disposition of property by will. In most of the places where the word occurs in the Bible, however, it is practically equivalent to covenant; but in the Epistle to the Hebrews the basic legal meaning of the Greek word diatheke (a last will), of which it is the translation, is insisted on, to bring out the idea that the “New Testament” is put into execution, as it were, at the death of Christ, just as a will or testament in the ordinary sense does not go into effect until the testator has died (Heb. 7:22; 9:15 if.; etc.). See Covenant. The word testament is in common use, moreover, to designate the “Old” and “New” Testaments in the Bible, as well as the two stages of providential accomplishment of salvation which they record.
