KJV 1 And it came to pass, that on one of those days, as he taught the people in the temple, and preached the gospel, the chief priests and the scribes came upon him with the elders, NIV 1 One day as Jesus was teaching the people in the temple courts and proclaiming the good news, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, together with the elders, came up to him. KJV 2 And spake unto him, saying, Tell us, by what authority doest thou these things? or who is he that gave thee this authority? NIV 2 “Tell us by what authority you are doing these things,” they said. “Who gave you this authority?” KJV 3 And he answered and said unto them,I will also ask you one thing; and answer me: NIV 3 He replied, “I will also ask you a question. Tell me: KJV 4 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? NIV 4 John’s baptism—was it from heaven, or of human origin?” KJV 5 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not? NIV 5 They discussed it among themselves and said, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will ask, ‘Why didn’t you believe him?’ KJV 6 But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet. NIV 6 But if we say, ‘Of human origin,’ all the people will stone us, because they are persuaded that John was a prophet.” KJV 7 And they answered, that they could not tell whence it was. NIV 7 So they answered, “We don’t know where it was from.” KJV 8 And Jesus said unto them,Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. NIV 8 Jesus said, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.” KJV 9 Then began he to speak to the people this parable;A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time. NIV 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. KJV 10 And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty. NIV 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. KJV 11 And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty. NIV 11 He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. KJV 12 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out. NIV 12 He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out. KJV 13 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him. NIV 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.’ KJV 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 be ours. NIV 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.’ KJV 15 So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them? NIV 15 So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. “What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? KJV 16 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid. NIV 16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.”When the people heard this, they said, “God forbid!” KJV 17 And he beheld them, and said,What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? NIV 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 cornerstone’? KJV 18 Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder. NIV 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.” KJV 19 And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them. NIV 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. KJV 20 And they watched him, and sent forth spies, which should feign themselves just men, that they might take hold of his words, that so they might deliver him unto the power and authority of the governor. NIV 20 Keeping a close watch on him, they sent spies, who pretended to be sincere. They hoped to catch Jesus in something he said, so that they might hand him over to the power and authority of the governor. KJV 21 And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that thou sayest and teachest rightly, neither acceptest thou the person of any, but teachest the way of God truly: NIV 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. KJV 22 Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no? NIV 22 Is it right for us to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” KJV 23 But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them,Why tempt ye me? NIV 23 He saw through their duplicity and said to them, KJV 24 Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar's. NIV 24 “Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscription are on it?”“Caesar’s,” they replied. KJV 25 And he said unto them,Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and unto God the things which be God's. NIV 25 He said to them, “Then give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” KJV 26 And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace. NIV 26 They were unable to trap him in what he had said there in public. And astonished by his answer, they became silent.
