Luke 19:45-48 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
Jesus Goes to the Temple
45 Jesus went into the Temple area. He began to throw out the people who were selling things there. 46 He said, “The Scriptures say, ‘My Temple will be a house of prayer.’[a] But you have changed it into a ‘hiding place for thieves.’[b]”
47 Jesus taught the people in the Temple area every day. The leading priests, the teachers of the law, and some of the leaders of the people wanted to kill him. 48 But they did not know how they could do it, because everyone was listening to him. The people were very interested in what Jesus said.
