Matthew 17:25

Context
17:25 He said, “Yes.” When Peter came into the house, Jesus spoke to him first, 1  “What do you think, Simon? From whom do earthly kings collect tolls or taxes – from their sons 2  or from foreigners?”

1 tn Grk “spoke first to him, saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant in English and has not been translated.

2 sn The phrase their sons may mean “their citizens,” but the term “sons” has been retained here in order to preserve the implicit comparison between the Father and his Son, Jesus.
