22 ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΘΘΑΙΟΝ Matthew Reference
41Συνηγμένων δὲ τῶν Φαρισαίων ἐπηρώτησεν αὐτοὺς ὁ Ἰησοῦς Turning to the assembled Pharisees Jesus asked them,The Question about David's Son Mt.22.41-46 | Mk.12.35-37 | Lk.20.41-44
42λέγων, Τί ὑμῖν δοκεῖ περὶ τοῦ Χριστοῦ; τίνος υἱός ἐστιν; λέγουσιν αὐτῷ, Τοῦ Δαυίδ. 'What is your opinion about the Messiah? Whose son is he?' 'The son of David', they replied. 
43λέγει αὐτοῖς, Πῶς οὖν Δαυὶδ ἐν πνεύματι καλεῖ αὐτὸν κύριον λέγων, 'How then is it', he asked, 'that David by inspiration calls him "Lord"? For he says, 
44Εἶπεν κύριος τῷ κυρίῳ μου,
Κάθου ἐκ δεξιῶν μου ἕως ἂν θῶ τοὺς ἐχθρούς σου ὑποκάτω τῶν ποδῶν σου;
"The Lord said to my Lord, 'Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet.'- The Lord said to my Lord Mt.22.44 | Ps.110.1
45εἰ οὖν Δαυὶδ καλεῖ αὐτὸν κύριον, πῶς υἱὸς αὐτοῦ ἐστιν;
"If David calls him "Lord", how can he be David's son?' 
46καὶ οὐδεὶς ἐδύνατο ἀποκριθῆναι αὐτῷ λόγον, οὐδὲ ἐτόλμησέν τις ἀπ' ἐκείνης τῆς ἡμέρας ἐπερωτῆσαι αὐτὸν οὐκέτι.

Not a man could say a word in reply; and from that day forward no one dared ask him another question.
