Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem

41 Now as He drew near, He saw the city and (A)wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this (B)your day, the things that (C)make for your (D)peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 For days will come upon you when your enemies will (E)build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side, 44 (F)and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and (G)they will not leave in you one stone upon another, (H)because you did not know the time of your visitation.”

Jesus Cleanses the Temple(I)

45 (J)Then He went into the temple and began to drive out those who [a]bought and sold in it, 46 saying to them, “It is written, (K)‘My house [b]is a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a (L)‘den of thieves.’

47 And He (M)was teaching daily in the temple. But (N)the chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people sought to destroy Him, 48 and were unable to do anything; for all the people were very attentive to (O)hear Him.
