16 Then the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing Him asked that He would show them a sign from heaven. 2 He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’;3 and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’[a]Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of[b]the prophet Jonah.” And He left them and departed.
17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah,for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, butMy Father who is in heaven.18 And I also say to you thatyou are Peter, andon this rock I will build My church, andthe gates of Hades shall not[a]prevail against it.19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth[b]will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
