Matthew 21:12-16

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

12 aAnd Jesus entered the temple
Some manuscripts add of God
and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of cthe money-changers and the seats of those who sold dpigeons.
13He said to them, “It is written, eMy house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but fyou make it a den of robbers.”

14 gAnd the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. 15 hBut when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, iHosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant, 16and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, Yes; jhave you never read,

k“‘Out of the mouth of linfants and nursing babies
you have prepared praise’?”
