45 Then he entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling things there;
46and he said, It is written,
My house shall be a house of prayer;
but you have made it a den of robbers.
47 Every day he was teaching in the temple. The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people kept looking for a way to kill him; 48but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were spellbound by what they heard.
