Matthew 17:22-27New American Standard Bible (NASB)
22 And while they were gathering together in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be [a]delivered into the hands of men;23 and they will kill Him, and He will be raised on the third day.” And they were deeply grieved.
The Tribute Money
24 When they came to Capernaum, those who collected the [b]two-drachma tax came to Peter and said, “Does your teacher not pay the [c]two-drachma tax?”25 He *said, “Yes.” And when he came into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do the kings of the earth collect customs or poll-tax, from their sons or from strangers?”26 When Peter said, “From strangers,” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are [d]exempt.27 However, so that we do not [e]offend them, go to the sea and throw in a hook, and take the first fish that comes up; and when you open its mouth, you will find [f]a shekel. Take that and give it to them for you and Me.”
30 From there they went out and began to go through Galilee, and He did not want anyone to know about it.31 For He was teaching His disciples and telling them, “The Son of Man is to be [a]delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill Him; and when He has been killed, He will rise three days later.”32 But they [b]did not understand this statement, and they were afraid to ask Him.
