Paying Taxes to Caesar

20 And they watched [him]a closely [and]b sent spies who pretended they were upright, in order that they could catch him in a statement, so that they could hand him over to the authority and the jurisdiction of the governor. 21 And they asked him, saying, "Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and do not {show partiality},c but teach the way of God in truth. 22 Is it permitted [for] us to pay taxesd to Caesar or not?" 23 But seeing through their craftiness, he said to them, 24 "Show me a denarius! Whose image and inscription does it have?" And they answered [and]e said,f "Caesar's." 25 So he said to them, "Well then, give to Caesar the things of Caesar, and to God the things of God!" 26 And they were not able to catch [him]gh in a statement in the sight of the people, and astonished at his answer, they became silent.
