Matthew 22:15-22

CEB 15 Then the Pharisees met together to find a way to trap Jesus in his words. NRS 15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap him in what he said. CEB 16 They sent their disciples, along with the supporters of Herod, to him. "Teacher," they said, "we know that you are genuine and that you teach God's way as it really is. We know that you are not swayed by people's opinions, because you don't show favoritism. NRS 16 So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, "Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality. CEB 17 So tell us what you think: Does the Law allow people to pay taxes to Caesar or not?" NRS 17 Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?" CEB 18 Knowing their evil motives, Jesus replied, "Why do you test me, you hypocrites? NRS 18 But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, "Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites? CEB 19 Show me the coin used to pay the tax." And they brought him a denarion. NRS 19 Show me the coin used for the tax." And they brought him a denarius. CEB 20 "Whose image and inscription is this?" he asked. NRS 20 Then he said to them, "Whose head is this, and whose title?" CEB 21 "Caesar's," they replied. Then he said, "Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God." NRS 21 They answered, "The emperor's." Then he said to them, "Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor's, and to God the things that are God's." CEB 22 When they heard this they were astonished, and they departed. NRS 22 When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.
