Mark 11:15-19 New English Translation (NET Bible)
Cleansing the Temple
15 Then[a] they came to Jerusalem. Jesus[b] entered the temple area[c] and began to drive out those who were selling and buying in the temple courts.[d] He turned over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves, 16 and he would not permit anyone to carry merchandise[e] through the temple courts.[f] 17 Then he began to teach[g] them and said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’?[h] But you have turned it into a den[i] of robbers!”[j] 18 The chief priests and the experts in the law[k] heard it and they considered how they could assassinate[l] him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed by his teaching. 19 When evening came, Jesus and his disciples[m] went out of the city.
