He drives the Traders out
Anand, Jess paver was at
hand, and Jefus went up to Jeru-
14. falem. And found in the temple those
that fold oxen, and fheep, and doves,
15. and the changers of money, fitting. And
when he had made a fcourge of fmall
cords, he drove them all out of the tem-
ple, and the fheep and the oxen; and
poured out the changers money, and o-
16. verthrew the Tables; And faid unto
them that fold doves, Take these things

Jews: the fame came to Jefus by night 2.
