Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem

41 (A)And when he drew near and saw the city, (B)he wept over it, 42 saying, (C)“Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now (D)they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For (E)the days will come upon you, when your enemies (F)will set up a barricade around you and (G)surround you and hem you in on every side 44 (H)and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And (I)they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know (J)the time of your (K)visitation.”

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

45 (L)And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold, 46 saying to them, “It is written, (M)‘My house shall be a house of prayer,’ but (N)you have made it a den of robbers.”

47 (O)And he was teaching daily in the temple. (P)The chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people were seeking to destroy him, 48 but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were hanging on his words.
