The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.
Psalm 25:14 (NKJ)
And they sent some of the Pharisees and Herodians to Him (to Jesus), in order to
trap Him in a statement.
And they came and said to Him, "Teacher, we know that You are truthful, and defer
to no one; for You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth. Is
it lawful to pay a poll-tax to Caesar, or not? Shall we pay, or shall we not pay?"

life. And we have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God."
Jesus answered them, "Did I Myself not choose you, the twelve, and yet one of you
is a devil?" Now He meant Judas the son of Simon Iscariot, for he, one of the twelve,
was going to betray Him. John 6:64-71 (NAS)
