Cleansing the Temple

12 1And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the 2money changers and the seats of those who were selling 3doves. 13 And He said to them, "It is written, '4MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER '; but you are making it a 5ROBBERS' aDEN." 14 And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and 6He healed them. 15 But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He had done, and the children who were shouting in the temple, "Hosanna to the 7Son of David," they became indignant 16 and said to Him, "Do You hear what these children are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes; have you never read, '8OUT OF THE MOUTH OF INFANTS AND NURSING BABIES YOU HAVE PREPARED PRAISE FOR YOURSELF'?" 17 And He left them and went out of the city to 9Bethany, and spent the night there.
