13 x Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" 14 And they said, "Some say y John the Baptist, others say z Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets." 15 He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?" 16 Simon Peter replied, a "You are b the Christ, c the Son of d the living God." 17 And Jesus answered him, e "Blessed are you, f Simon Bar-Jonah! For g flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, h but my Father who is in heaven. 18 And I tell you, i you are Peter, and j on this rock 1 I will build my church, and k the gates of l hell 2 shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you m the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and n whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed 3 in heaven." 20 o Then he strictly charged the disciples to tell no one that he was the Christ.English Standard Version (ESV) The Holy Bible, English Standard Version Copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
