View In My Bible
11 1Jesus entered Jerusalem and came into the temple; and after looking around at everything, 2He left for Bethany with the twelve, since it was already late. 12 3On the next day, when they had left Bethany, He became hungry. 13 Seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if perhaps He would find anything on it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 He said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again!" And His disciples were listening.

15 4Then they came to Jerusalem. And He entered the temple and began to drive out those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling adoves; 16 and He would not permit anyone to carry bmerchandise through the temple. 17 And He began to teach and say to them, "Is it not written, '5MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER FOR ALL THE NATIONS '? 6But you have made it a ROBBERS' cDEN." 18 The chief priests and the scribes heard this, and 7began seeking how to destroy Him; for they were afraid of Him, for 8the whole crowd was astonished at His teaching. 19 9When evening came, dthey would go out of the city. 20 10As they were passing by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots up. 21 Being reminded, Peter said to Him, "11Rabbi, look, the fig tree which You cursed has withered."
