a. Cleansing the Temple
12 aAnd Jesus entered into the temple and cast out all those who were selling and buying in the temple. And He overturned the tables of the bmoney changers and the seats of those who were selling the cdoves,
13 And He said to them, It is written, a"My house shall be called a house of prayer,'' but you are making it a bden of robbers.
14 And the ablind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
15 But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonders that He did and the children who were crying out in the temple and saying, aHosanna to the Son of David, they were 1indignant.
16 And they said to Him, Do you hear what these are saying? And Jesus said to them, Yes. Have you anever read, b"Out of the mouth of cinfants and sucklings You have perfected praise''?
