King James Version (KJV)
15Â Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
16Â And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.
17Â Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
18Â But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?
19Â Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
20Â And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
21Â They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
22Â When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
23Â The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
24Â Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
25Â Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:
26Â Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
27Â And last of all the woman died also.
28Â Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.
29Â Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
30Â For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
31Â But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
32Â I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
33Â And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.
34Â But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
35Â Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
36Â Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37Â Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38Â This is the first and great commandment.
39Â And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40Â On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
41Â While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
42Â Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David.
43Â He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,
44Â The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
45Â If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
46Â And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
13Â And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
14Â And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
15Â Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
16Â And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar’s.
17Â And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
18Â Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
19Â Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
20Â Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
21Â And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
22Â And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
23Â In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
24Â And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
25Â For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
26Â And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
27Â He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
28Â And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
29Â And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
30Â And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31Â And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
32Â And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
33Â And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
34Â And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
35Â And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the son of David?
36Â For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
37Â David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
20Â 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.
21Â 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:
22Â Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar, or no?
23Â But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?
24Â Shew me a penny. Whose image and superscription hath it? They answered and said, Caesar’s.
25Â And he said unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which be Caesar’s, and unto God the things which be God’s.
26Â And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marvelled at his answer, and held their peace.
27Â Then came to him certain of the Sadducees, which deny that there is any resurrection; and they asked him,
28Â Saying, Master, Moses wrote unto us, If any man’s brother die, having a wife, and he die without children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
29Â There were therefore seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and died without children.
30Â And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.
31Â And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also: and they left no children, and died.
32Â Last of all the woman died also.
33Â Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife.
34Â And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:
35Â But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:
36Â Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
37Â Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth the Lord the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
38Â For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.
39Â Then certain of the scribes answering said, Master, thou hast well said.
40Â And after that they durst not ask him any question at all.
41Â And he said unto them, How say they that Christ is David’s son?
42Â And David himself saith in the book of Psalms, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
43Â Till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
44Â David therefore calleth him Lord, how is he then his son?
