Matthew 16:13-20 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
Peter’s Confession of the Messiah
14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others, Elijah; still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 “But you,” he asked them, “who do you say that I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus responded, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah,[c] because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but my Father in heaven. 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will have been bound[d] in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will have been loosed[e] in heaven.” 20 Then he gave the disciples orders to tell no one that he was[f] the Messiah.
