“And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?”
King James Version (KJV)
21:16 #Psalm 8:2|.
Mt 21:16 Hearest thou what these say? Christ's answer to the priests is a rebuke to all who would check religious enthusiasm on the part of children. Out of the mouths of babes, etc. The quotation is from Ps 8:2. The praise of the innocent child is the perfection of praise.
