Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 12:15

_ _ Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy — “their wickedness” (Matthew 22:18); “their craftiness” (Luke 20:23). The malignity of their hearts took the form of craft, pretending what they did not feel — an anxious desire to be guided aright in a matter which to a scrupulous few might seem a question of some difficulty. Seeing perfectly through this,

_ _ He said unto them, Why tempt ye me? — “hypocrites!”

_ _ bring me a penny that I may see it — “the tribute money” (Matthew 22:19).
