12:13 And they send some Pharisees and Herodians before him ...
  so that they would snare him in a "word."
12:14 And coming, they say to him ... Teacher! ...
  We have perceived you are "true" ...
  and it is not a concern to you about "anyone" because you do not look into a "face of men" ...
  but rather on "truth" you teach "the way" of God.
  Is it permissible to give a "head tax" to Caesar or not?
  Should we give? ...
  or not give?
12:15 But having perceived their hypocrisy ...
  he said to them ... Why are you trying me?
  Bring me a denarius so that I might perceive it.
12:16 And they brought one ...
  and he says ... Whose image and inscription? ...
  And they said to him ... Caesar's!
12:17 And Jesus said to them ... The things of Caesar ... give to Caesar.
  And the things of God to God.
  And they were amazed at him.
