Matthew 22:41-46

41 1Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question:
42 "What do you think about the Christ, whose son is He?" They said to Him, "2The son of David."
43 He said to them, "Then how does David 3in the Spirit call Him 'Lord,' saying,
44 '4THE LORD SAID TO MY LORD, "SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I PUT YOUR ENEMIES BENEATH YOUR FEET "'?
45 "If David then calls Him 'Lord,' how is He his son?"
46 5No one was able to answer Him a word, nor did anyone dare from that day on to ask Him another question.
