Jesus Drives Money Changers from the Temple

15 (A)Then they *came to Jerusalem. And He entered the temple area and began to drive out those who were selling and buying on the temple grounds, and He overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling [a]doves; 16 and He would not allow anyone to carry [b]merchandise through the temple grounds. 17 And He began to teach and say to them, “Is it not written: ‘(B)My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? (C)But you have made it a den of robbers.” 18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard this, and they (D)began seeking how to put Him to death; for they were afraid of Him, because all (E)the crowd was astonished at His teaching.
