Matthew 16:1-4

The Pharisees and Sadducees Demand Signs

1 a  And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, and b  to test him c  they asked him to show them d  a sign from heaven. 2He answered them
Some manuscripts omit the following words to the end of verse 3
f  “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’
3And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ g  You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret h  the signs of the times. 4 i  An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” So j  he left them and departed.
