Bible: Luke 19:45-48

Cleansing the Temple

19:45 Then 1  Jesus 2  entered the temple courts 3  and began to drive out those who were selling things there, 4  19:46 saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house will be a house of prayer,’ 5  but you have turned it into a den 6  of robbers! 7 

19:47 Jesus 8  was teaching daily in the temple courts. The chief priests and the experts in the law 9  and the prominent leaders among the people were seeking to assassinate 10  him, 19:48 but 11  they could not find a way to do it, 12  for all the people hung on his words. 13
