The Woes of the Pharisees is a list of criticisms by Jesus against the Scribes and Pharisees in the Gospel of Luke and Gospel of Matthew.

Seven are listed in Matthew, and hence Matthew's version is known as the seven woes, while only six are given in Luke, whose version is thus known as the six woes.

The woes mostly criticise the Pharisees for hypocrisy and perjury. They illustrate the differences between inner and outer moral states.
