John 2:12-22 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

12 After these things he came down to Capernaum, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples; and they dwelled there not many days [and they dwelt there not many days].

13 And the pask of Jews was nigh, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

14 And he found in the temple men selling oxen, and sheep, and culvers, and [money-]changers sitting.

15 And when he had made as it were a scourge of small cords, he drove out all of the temple, and oxen, and sheep[a]; and he shedded [out] the money of changers, and turned upside-down the boards.

16 And he said to them that sold culvers, Take away from hence these things, and do not ye make the house of my Father an house of merchandise.

17 And his disciples had mind, for it was written, The fervent love of thine house hath eaten me [The zeal, or fervour of love, of thine house hath eaten me].

18 Therefore the Jews answered, and said to him, What token showest thou to us [What sign, or token, showest thou to us], that thou doest these things?

19 Jesus answered, and said to them, Undo ye this temple, and in three days I shall raise it.

20 Therefore the Jews said to him, In forty and six years this temple was builded, and shalt thou in three days raise it [In forty and six years this temple is built, and thou in three days shalt raise it]?

21 But he said of the temple of his body.

22 Therefore when he was risen from death, his disciples had mind, that he said these things of his body [Therefore when he had risen from dead men, his disciples had mind, for he said this thing]; and they believed to the scripture, and to the word that Jesus said.

  1. John 2:15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he cast all out of the temple, and sheep, and oxen

John 2:12-22 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

12 After that, he descended into Capernaum with his mother and his brethren and his disciples, but continued not many days there.

13 And the Jews’ Passover was near at hand. And Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14 and found sitting in the temple those who sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the money-changers. 15 And he made a scourge of small cords and drove them all out of the temple with the sheep and oxen, and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables, 16 and said to those who sold doves, Take these things away from here, and do not make my Father’s house a house of merchandise! 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written: The zeal of your house has consumed me.

18 Then the Jews said to him, What sign can you show to us, seeing that you do these things? 19 Jesus answered and said to them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will rear it up again.

20 Then the Jews said, This temple was forty-six years in building, and will you rear it up in three days?

21 But he was speaking of the temple of his body. 22 As soon therefore as he was risen up again from death, his disciples remembered that he had said this. And they believed the scripture, and the words that Jesus had spoken.

12 After that, he went down into Capernaum, he and his mother, and his [a]brethren, and his disciples: but they continued not many days there.

13 [b]For the Jews’ Passover was at hand. Therefore Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

14 [c]And he found in the Temple those that sold oxen, and sheep, and doves, and changers of money sitting there.

15 Then he made a scourge of small cords and drove them all out of the Temple with the sheep and oxen, and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew their tables,

16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence: make not my father’s house, an house of merchandise.

17 And his disciples remembered, that it was written, The [d]zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

18 [e]Then answered the Jews, and said unto him, What [f]sign showest thou unto us, that thou doest these things?

19 Jesus answered, and said unto them, Destroy this Temple, and in three days I will raise it up again.

20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this Temple a building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?

21 But he spake of the [g]temple of his body.

22 As soon therefore as he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he thus said unto them: and they believed the Scriptures, and the word which Jesus had said.

12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days. 13 And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, 14 and found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 and when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; 16 and said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. 18 Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? 19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? 21 But he spake of the temple of his body. 22 When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.
