A reading from the gospel according to Matthew

Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question, saying "What do you think of the Christ? Whose son is he?" 

They said to him, "The son of David." 

He said to them, "How is it then that David, inspired by the Spirit, calls him Lord, saying,

Sit at my right hand,
till I put thy enemies under thy feet'?

If David thus calls him Lord, how is he his son?"

And no one was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did any one dare to ask him any more questions.

--Matthew 22:41-46, RSV
