23 And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received
tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?
saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Joshua prevented him, saying,
What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings
of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?
25 Peter saith unto him, Of strangers.
26 Joshua saith unto him, Then
are the children free Notwithstanding,
lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up
the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt
find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
