When Yeshua had come closer and could see the city, he wept over it,
saying, "If you only knew today what is needed for shalom! But for now it is hidden from your sight.
For the days are coming upon you when your enemies will set up a barricade around you, encircle you, hem you in on every side,
and dash you to the ground, you and your children within your walls, leaving not one stone standing on another -- and all because you did not recognize your opportunity when God offered it!"
Then Yeshua entered the Temple grounds and began driving out those doing business there,
saying to them, "The Tanakh says, `My House is to be a house of prayer,'a but you have made it into a den of robbers!"
Every day he taught at the Temple. The head cohanim, the Torah-teachers and the leaders of the people tried to find a way of putting an end to him;
but they couldn't find any way of doing it, because all the people were hanging onto his every word.
