Thanks for pushing me, Carlton. I found the passage I was
looking for -- Luke 11.43:
hOUAI hUMIN TOIS FARISAIOIS, hOTI AGAPATE THN PRWTOKAQEDRIAN
EN TAIS SUNAGWGAIS KAI TOUS ASPASMOUS EN TAIS AGORAIS.
Alas for you, you Pharisees, that you love the chief seat
in the synagogues and the greetings in the marketplaces!
