Jesus went into the temple courtyard and threw out everyone who was buying and selling there. He overturned the moneychangers' tables and the chairs of those who sold pigeons.
He told them, "Scripture says, 'My house will be called a house of prayer,' but you're turning it into a gathering place for thieves!"
Blind and lame people came to him in the temple courtyard, and he healed them.
When the chief priests and the scribes saw the amazing miracles he performed and the children shouting in the temple courtyard, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were irritated.
They said to him, "Do you hear what these children are saying?" Jesus replied, "Yes, I do. Have you never read, 'From the mouths of little children and infants, you have created praise'?"
He left them and went out of the city to Bethany and spent the night there.
