The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it came to pass on one of the days, as he was teaching the people in the temple, and announcing the glad tidings, the chief priests and the scribes with the elders came up, 1 One day as he was teaching the people in the temple courts and preaching the gospel, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him.
2 and spoke to him saying, Tell us by what authority thou doest these things, or who is it who has given thee this authority? 2 "Tell us by what authority you are doing these things," they said. "Who gave you this authority?"
3 And he answering said to them, *I* also will ask you [one] thing, and tell me: 3 He replied, "I will also ask you a question. Tell me,
4 The baptism of John, was it of heaven or of men? 4 John's baptism--was it from heaven, or from men?"
5 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, If we should say, Of heaven, he will say, Why have ye not believed him? 5 They discussed it among themselves and said, "If we say, 'From heaven,' he will ask, 'Why didn't you believe him?'
6 but if we should say, Of men, the whole people will stone us, for they are persuaded that John was a prophet. 6 But if we say, 'From men,' all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet."
7 And they answered, they did not know whence. 7 So they answered, "We don't know where it was from."
8 And Jesus said to them, Neither do *I* tell you by what authority I do these things. 8 Jesus said, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things."
9 And he began to speak to the people this parable: A man planted a vineyard and let it out to husbandmen, and left the country for a long time. 9 He went on to tell the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time.
10 And in the season he sent to the husbandmen a bondman, that they might give to him of the fruit of the vineyard; but the husbandmen, having beaten him, sent [him] away empty. 10 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed.
11 And again he sent another bondman; but they, having beaten him also, and cast insult upon him, sent [him] away empty. 11 He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed.
12 And again he sent a third; and they, having wounded him also, cast [him] out. 12 He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out.
13 And the lord of the vineyard said, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: perhaps when they see him they will respect [him]. 13 "Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.'
14 But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir; [come,] let us kill him, that the inheritance may become ours. 14 "But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. 'This is the heir,' they said. 'Let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.'
15 And having cast him forth out of the vineyard, they killed [him]. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do to them? 15 So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. "What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them?
16 He will come and destroy those husbandmen, and will give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it they said, May it never be! 16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others." When the people heard this, they said, "May this never be!"
17 But he looking at them said, What then is this that is written, The stone which they that builded rejected, this has become the corner-stone? 17 Jesus looked directly at them and asked, "Then what is the meaning of that which is written: " 'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone ' ?
18 Every one falling on this stone shall be broken, but on whomsoever it shall fall, it shall grind him to powder. 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed."
19 And the chief priests and the scribes sought the same hour to lay hands on him, and they feared the people; for they knew that he had spoken this parable of them. 19 The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.
20 And having watched [him], they sent out suborned persons, pretending to be just men, that they might take hold of him in [his] language, so that they might deliver him up to the power and authority of the governor. 20 Keeping a close watch on him, they sent spies, who pretended to be honest. They hoped to catch Jesus in something he said so that they might hand him over to the power and authority of the governor.
21 And they asked him saying, Teacher, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, and acceptest no [man's] person, but teachest with truth the way of God: 21 So the spies questioned him: "Teacher, we know that you speak and teach what is right, and that you do not show partiality but teach the way of God in accordance with the truth.
22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute to Caesar, or not? 22 Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"
23 But perceiving their deceit he said to them, Why do ye tempt me? 23 He saw through their duplicity and said to them,
24 Shew me a denarius. Whose image and superscription has it? And answering they said, Caesar's. 24 "Show me a denarius. Whose portrait and inscription are on it?"
25 And he said to them, Pay therefore what is Caesar's to Caesar, and what is God's to God. 25 "Caesar's," they replied. He said to them, "Then give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."
26 And they were not able to take hold of him in [his] expressions before the people, and, wondering at his answer, they were silent. 26 They were unable to trap him in what he had said there in public. And astonished by his answer, they became silent.
27 And some of the Sadducees, who deny that there is any resurrection, coming up [to him], 27 Some of the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to Jesus with a question.
28 demanded of him saying, Teacher, Moses wrote to us, If any one's brother, who has a wife, die, and he die childless, his brother shall take the wife and raise up seed to his brother. 28 "Teacher," they said, "Moses wrote for us that if a man's brother dies and leaves a wife but no children, the man must marry the widow and have children for his brother.
29 There were then seven brethren: and the first, having taken a wife, died childless; 29 Now there were seven brothers. The first one married a woman and died childless.
30 and the second [took the woman, and *he* died childless]; 30 The second
31 and the third took her: and in like manner also the seven left no children and died; 31 and then the third married her, and in the same way the seven died, leaving no children.
32 and last of all the woman also died. 32 Finally, the woman died too.
33 In the resurrection therefore of which of them does she become wife, for the seven had her as wife? 33 Now then, at the resurrection whose wife will she be, since the seven were married to her?"
34 And Jesus said to them, The sons of this world marry and are given in marriage, 34 Jesus replied, "The people of this age marry and are given in marriage.
35 but they who are counted worthy to have part in that world, and the resurrection from among [the] dead, neither marry nor are given in marriage; 35 But those who are considered worthy of taking part in that age and in the resurrection from the dead will neither marry nor be given in marriage,
36 for neither can they die any more, for they are equal to angels, and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection. 36 and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God's children, since they are children of the resurrection.
37 But that the dead rise, even Moses shewed in [the section of] the bush, when he called [the] Lord the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob; 37 But in the account of the bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord 'the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.'
38 but he is not God of [the] dead but of [the] living; for all live for him. 38 He is not the God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive."
39 And some of the scribes answering said, Teacher, thou hast well spoken. 39 Some of the teachers of the law responded, "Well said, teacher!"
40 For they did not dare any more to ask him anything. 40 And no one dared to ask him any more questions.
41 And he said to them, How do they say that the Christ is David's son, 41 Then Jesus said to them, "How is it that they say the Christ is the Son of David?
42 and David himself says in the book of Psalms, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand 42 David himself declares in the Book of Psalms: " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand
43 until I put thine enemies [as] footstool of thy feet? 43 until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet." '
44 David therefore calls him Lord, and how is he his son? 44 David calls him 'Lord.' How then can he be his son?"
45 And, as all the people were listening, he said to his disciples, 45 While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples,
46 Beware of the scribes, who like to walk about in long robes, and who love salutations in the market-places, and first seats in the synagogues, and first places at suppers; 46 "Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.
47 who devour the houses of widows, and as a pretext make long prayers. These shall receive a severer judgment. 47 They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely."
