2. Of the Pharisees and Herodians
20 1And they awatched Him closely and bsent spies who cfeigned themselves to be righteous, in order that they might lay hold on some dword of His, so as to edeliver Him up to the rule and authority of the fgovernor.
21 And they questioned Him, saying, Teacher, we know that You speak and teach correctly, 1and do not accept man's aperson, but teach the bway of God in truth.
22 Is it lawful for us to pay ataxes to bCaesar, or not?
23 But He perceived their acraftiness and said to them,
24 Show Me a adenarius. Whose image and inscription does it have? And they said, Caesar's.
25 And He said to them, Therefore arender the things that are Caesar's to Caesar, and the things that are God's to God.
26 And they were not able to lay hold of a asaying of His in the presence of the people; and marveling at His answer, they kept silent.
