15 But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law
saw the wonderful things he did and the children
shouting in the temple area, “Hosanna to the Son of David,”
they were indignant.
16 “Do you hear what these children are saying?”
they asked him.
“Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read,
“‘From the lips of children and infants
you have ordained praise’?”
17 And he left them and went out of the city to Bethany,
where he spent the night.
