(17) Tell us, therefore, What do you think? Is it lawful to pay head tax to Caesar or not?" (18) But Jesus, knowing their wickedness, said: "Why do YOU put me to the test, hypocrites? (19) Show me the head tax coin." They brought him a denarius. (20) And he said to them: "Whose image and inscription is this?" (21) They said: "Caesar's." Then he said to them: "Pay back, therefore, Caesar's things to Caesar, but God's things to God." (22) Well, when they heard [that], they marveled, and leaving him they went off.
