Matthew 22:15-17 Jubilee Bible 2000 (JUB)
15 ¶ Then the Pharisees left and took counsel how they might entangle him in his word.
16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with those of Herod, saying, Master, we know that thou art a lover of truth and teachest the way of God with truth and that thou takest care for no man, for thou art no respecter of persons of men.
17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar or not?
Matthew 22:15-17 New International Version (NIV)
Paying the Imperial Tax to Caesar
15 Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. 16 They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. “Teacher,” they said, “we know that you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren’t swayed by others, because you pay no attention to who they are. 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay the imperial tax[a] to Caesar or not?”
