13 The Pharisees got together with Herod’s followers.[a] Then they sent some men to trick Jesus into saying something wrong. 14 They went to him and said, “Teacher, we know that you are honest. You treat everyone with the same respect, no matter who they are. And you teach the truth about what God wants people to do. Tell us, should we pay taxes to the Emperor or not?”
15 Jesus knew what they were up to, and he said, “Why are you trying to test me? Show me a coin!”
16 They brought him a silver coin, and he asked, “Whose picture and name are on it?”
“The Emperor’s,” they answered.
17 Then Jesus told them, “Give the Emperor what belongs to him and give God what belongs to God.” The men were amazed at Jesus.
But his people remembered
what had happened
during the time of Moses.[d]
Didn’t the Lord[e] bring them
and their leaders
safely through the sea?
Didn’t he[f] give them
his Holy Spirit?
12 The glorious power of the Lord
marched beside Moses.
The Lord will be praised forever
for dividing the sea.
