CEBCommon English Bible
12Then Jesus went into the temple and threw out all those who were selling and buying there. He pushed over the tables used for currency exchange and the chairs of those who sold doves. 13He said to them, "It’s written, My house will be called a house of prayer.#Isa 56:7; Jer 7:11 But you’ve made it a hideout for crooks."
14People who were blind and lame came to Jesus in the temple, and he healed them. 15But when the chief priests and legal experts saw the amazing things he was doing and the children shouting in the temple, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were angry. 16They said to Jesus, "Do you hear what these children are saying?"
"Yes," he answered. "Haven’t you ever read, From the mouths of babies and infants you’ve arranged praise for yourself?# Ps 8:3 LXX"
