Context
Jesus' Testimony Concerning John

7And as they departed, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John, What went you out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? 8But what went you out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. 9But what went you out for to see? A prophet? yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet. 10For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before your face, which shall prepare your way before you. 11Truly I say to you, Among them that are born of women there has not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. 12And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. 13For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. 14And if you will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come. 15He that has ears to hear, let him hear. 16But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like to children sitting in the markets, and calling to their fellows, 17And saying, We have piped to you, and you have not danced; we have mourned to you, and you have not lamented. 18For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He has a devil. 19The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a drunkard, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.
