The Parable of the Barren Fig Tree

6 And he told this parable: "A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find [any].a 7 So he said to the gardener, 'Behold, {for three years}b I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree and did not find [any].c Cut it down!d Why should it even exhaust the soil?' 8 But he answered [and]e said to him, 'Sir, leave it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put manure on [it].f 9 And if indeed it produces fruit in the coming [year], [so much the better],g but if not, you can cut it down.'"
