And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”

And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant,and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes;have you never read,

   “‘Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies 
   you have prepared praise’?”

And leaving them, he went out of the city to Bethany and lodged there.

Matthew 21:12-17

There is not room for Death
Nor atom that his might could render void
Since Thou art Being and Breath
And what Thou art may never be destroyed. 

Emily Brontë, 19th century
