What a tragically odd thing for the Jewish people, who were so proud of their temple and so careful in performing its ceremonies.  All the grounds of the temple should have been considered sacred.  But the love of money had blinded them to how far they had fallen from God’s intended purpose for the temple service.

The priests and rulers, of course, should have been the ones to stop this abuse of the temple and of the people.  They should have been ready to help those who arrived needing an offering, and should not have taken advantage of them.  But greed hardened their hearts, and all they could see was the money and the power.
