|| Mark 12:10, 11; Luke 20:17, 18
MT21:42 Jesus continued speaking to them: “Did you never read in the Scripture, ‘A Stone which the builders rejected has become a head-corner. This [head-corner stone] originates with YHWH and it is an awesome [head-corner] in our eyes.’ [Psalm 118:22, 23] MT21:43 Because of this I tell you: the Kingdom of The God will be removed from you and given to a nation producing [Kingdom] fruitage. MT21:44 And the person who falls upon this Stone will be shattered; but whoever [the Stone] falls on will be smashed.”
 In the Scripture: This must irritate these theologians who prided themselves in their reading of Scripture. Jesus quotes Psalm 118:22, 23. This is significant for this psalm is sung as a hymn following the Passover. Compare also Isaiah 28:16.
 A head-corner: Or, KJV: head of the corner; NASB: chief corner-stone.
 Originates with: Or, KJV: this is the Lord’s doing.
 YHWH: The Tetragram occurs here in the Hebrew Text as well as the Jewish Greek Septuagint. It is doubtful Jesus uttered the noma sagrada though some believe he did.
 It is an awesome [head-corner] in our eyes: NEB: and it is wonderful in our eyes.
 A nation producing [Kingdom] fruitage: Or, RIEU: a people who produce the kingdom’s fruitage; WMS: to a people who will pay a fair rent for it. There is another “nation” who will receive the “kingdom.”
