Jesus Cleanses the Temple(A)

12 (B)Then Jesus went into the temple [a]of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the (C)money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13 And He said to them, “It is written, (D)‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a (E)‘den of thieves.’

14 Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. 15 But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the (F)Son of David!” they were [b]indignant 16 and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?”

And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read,

(G)‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have perfected praise’?”

17 Then He left them and (H)went out of the city to Bethany, and He lodged there.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple(A)

15 (B)So they came to Jerusalem. Then Jesus went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold (C)doves. 16 And He would not allow anyone to carry wares through the temple. 17 Then He taught, saying to them, “Is it not written, (D)‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations’? But you have made it a (E)‘den of thieves.’

18 And (F)the scribes and chief priests heard it and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because (G)all the people were astonished at His teaching. 19 When evening had come, He went out of the city.

12 After this He went down to (A)Capernaum, He, His mother, (B)His brothers, and His disciples; and they did not stay there many days.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple(C)

13 (D)Now the Passover of the Jews was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 (E)And He found in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers [a]doing business. 15 When He had made a whip of cords, He drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers’ money and overturned the tables. 16 And He said to those who sold doves, “Take these things away! Do not make (F)My Father’s house a house of merchandise!” 17 Then His disciples remembered that it was written, (G)“Zeal for Your house [b]has eaten Me up.”

18 So the Jews answered and said to Him, (H)“What sign do You show to us, since You do these things?”

19 Jesus answered and said to them, (I)“Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?”

21 But He was speaking (J)of the temple of His body. 22 Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, (K)His disciples remembered that He had said this [c]to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.

The Discerner of Hearts

23 Now when He was in Jerusalem at the Passover, during the feast, many believed in His name when they saw the (L)signs which He did. 24 But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He (M)knew all men, 25 and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for (N)He knew what was in man.
