Luke 20:19-26

Tribute to Caesar

19 The scribes and the chief priests 1tried to lay hands on Him that very hour, and they feared the people; for they understood that He spoke this parable against them.
20 2So they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, in order 3that they might catch Him in some statement, so that they could deliver Him to the rule and the authority of 4the governor.
21 They questioned Him, saying, "Teacher, we know that You speak and teach correctly, and You are not partial * to any, but teach the way of God in truth.
22 "Is it lawful for us 5to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?"
23 But He detected their trickery and said to them,
24 "Show Me a denarius. Whose likeness and inscription does it have?" They said, "Caesar's."
25 And He said to them, "Then 6render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."
26 And they were unable * to 7catch Him in a saying in the presence of the people; and being amazed at His answer, they became silent.
