15 “But you,” He asked them, “who do you say that I am?”

16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the * Messiah, the Son of the living God!” n

17 And Jesus responded, “Simon son of Jonah, o p you are blessed because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father in heaven. q 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, r and on this rock s I will build My church, t and the forces u of * Hades will not overpower it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, v and whatever you bind on earth is already bound w in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth is already loosed x in heaven.”
