Matthew 17:16-26

16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
17 Then Jesus answered and said, O unfaithful and crooked generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I suffer you? Bring him here to me.
18 And Jesus rebuked him, and the demon departed out of him and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus apart and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unfaithfulness; for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove from here to yonder place, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
21 Howbeit this lineage of demons does not go out but by prayer and fasting.
22 And while they abode in Galilee, Jesus said unto them, The Son of man shall be betrayed into the hands of men;
23 and they shall kill him, and the third day he shall be raised again. And they were exceeding sorry.
24 And when they were come to Capernaum, those that received the two drachmas came to Peter and said, Does not your master pay the two drachmas?
25 He said, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus spoke unto him first, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own sons or of strangers?
26 Peter said unto him, Of strangers. Jesus said unto him, Then the sons are free.
