20 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

20So they watched him, and sent spies, who pretended to be sincere, that they might take hold of what he said, so as to deliver him up to the authority and jurisdiction of the governor. Καὶ παρατηρήσαντες ἀπέστειλαν ἐγκαθέτους ὑποκρινομένους ἑαυτοὺς δικαίους εἶναι, ἵνα ἐπιλάβωνται αὐτοῦ λόγου, ὡστε παραδοῦναι αὐτὸν τῇ ἀρχῇ καὶ τῇ ἐξουσίᾳ τοῦ ἡγεμόν ος.
21They asked him, "Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and show no partiality, but truly teach the way of God. καὶ ἐπηρώτησαν αὐτὸν λέγοντες, Διδάσκαλε, οἰδαμεν ὅτι ὀρθῶς λέγεις καὶ διδάσκεις καὶ οὐ λαμβάνεις πρόσωπον, ἀλλ' ἐπ' ἀληθείας τὴν ὁδὸν τοῦ θεοῦ διδάσκεις·
22Is it lawful for us to give tribute to Caesar, or not?" ἐξεστιν ἡμᾶς Καίσαρι φόρον δοῦναι ἢ οὒ;
23But he perceived their craftiness, and said to them, κατανοήσας δὲ αὐτῶν τὴν πανουργίαν εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς,
24"Show me a coin Greek: denarius. Whose likeness and inscription has it?" They said, "Caesar's." Δείξατέ μοι δηνάριον· τίνος ἐχει εἰκόνα καὶ ἐπιγραφήν; οἱ δὲ εἶπαν, Καίσαρος.
25He said to them, "Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." ὁ δὲ εἶπεν πρὸς αὐτούς, Τοίνυν ἀπόδοτε τὰ Καίσαρος Καίσαρι καὶ τὰ τοῦ θεοῦ τῷ θεῷ.
26And they were not able in the presence of the people to catch him by what he said; but marveling at his answer they were silent. καὶ οὐκ ἰσχυσαν ἐπιλαβέσθαι αὐτοῦ ῥήματος ἐναντίον τοῦ λαοῦ, καὶ θαυμάσαντες ἐπὶ τῇ ἀποκρίσει αὐτοῦ ἐσίγησαν.
