And they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes. Have you never read, Out of the mouth of little children and nursing children you have brought forth praise?aBible other translations
a[16]
From Ps. 8:2

“Out of the mouth of little children and nursing children you have brought forth praise.” In our modern world, “nursing children” are normally too young to praise God, but in the biblical world it was common for a mother to nurse a baby until three years old or even older, and so nursing children could praise God. For the meaning “brought forth,” see Louw and Nida, Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament Based on Semantic Domains, and also the EDNT.
