59 Now the chief priests and the whole council[a] (A)were seeking false testimony against Jesus that they might put him to death, 60 but they found none, (B)though many false witnesses came forward. At last (C)two came forward 61 and said, “This man said, (D)‘I am able to (E)destroy the temple of God, and to rebuild it in three days.’” 62 And the high priest stood up and said, “Have you no answer to make? What is it that these men testify against you?”[b] 63 (F)But Jesus remained silent. (G)And the high priest said to him, (H)“I adjure you by (I)the living God, (J)tell us if you are (K)the Christ, (L)the Son of God.” 64 Jesus said to him, (M)“You have said so. But I tell you, from now on (N)you will see the Son of Man (O)seated at the right hand of Power and (P)coming on the clouds of heaven.”
