Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought.

Matthew 21:12 

Saviour, who dost with anger see 

The lusts which steal my heart from thee, 

The thieves out of thy temple chase, 

And plant thy Spirit in their place, 

And when my God inhabits there, 

My heart shall be thine house of prayer.
