Context
Paying Taxes to Caesar

19And the chief priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people: for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them. 20And 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 to the power and authority of the governor. 21And they asked him, saying, Master, we know that you say and teach rightly, neither accept you the person of any, but teach the way of God truly: 22Is it lawful for us to give tribute to Caesar, or no? 23But he perceived their craftiness, and said to them, Why tempt you me? 24Show me a penny. Whose image and superscription has it? They answered and said, Caesar's. 25And he said to them, Render therefore to Caesar the things which be Caesar's, and to God the things which be God's. 26And they could not take hold of his words before the people: and they marveled at his answer, and held their peace.
