“And they reasoned with themselues, saying, If we shall say, From heauen, he will say, Why then did ye not beleeue him?”
King James Version (KJV)
28. And say vnto him, By what authoritie doest thou these things? and who gaue thee this authority to doe these things? 29. And Iesus answered, and saide vnto them, I will also aske of you one question, and answere me, and I will tell you by what authoritie I doe these things. 30. The baptisme of Iohn, was it from heauen, or of men? Answere me. 31. And they reasoned with themselues, saying, If we shall say, From heauen, he will say, Why then did ye not beleeue him? 32. But if we shall say, Of men, they feared the people: for all men counted Iohn, that he was a Prophet indeed. 33. And they answered and said vnto Iesus, We cannot tell. And Iesus answering, saith vnto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I doe these things.
