15On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, 16and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’Isaiah 56:7? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’Jer. 7:11”
