And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

“And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.

‭‭John‬ ‭2:14-16‬ ‭KJV‬‬
