Sep 11 Jesus replied, “Yes, havent you read: Out of the mouths of children and infants You have perfected     praise?” He left them and went to live in Bethany.

10.4 Leaving Bethany the next day, Jesus was hungry. He noticed a leafy fig tree1 and went to see if it bore fruit. When he came to it, he found only leaves, as it was not time for figs. His disciples overheard him say to the tree, “May no one eat fruit from you again!”
10.5 Jesus entered the temple,1 expelled buyers and sellers, overturned money-changers tables and the chairs of the dove sellers. He didnt allow any goods to be removed. He told them, “It is written, My house will be called a house of prayer, but you have made it a robbers den.

Daily he taught in the temple, while chief priests, scribes and leaders planned to destroy him. They couldnt, for they feared the people who hung in wonder on his words, listening most attentively.
