1 And when they draw nigh unto Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth two of his disciples, 1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples,
2 and saith unto them, Go your way into the village that is over against you: and straightway as ye enter into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon no man ever yet sat; loose him, and bring him. 2 saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.
3 And if any one say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye, The Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him back hither. 3 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you doing this?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.' "
4 And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door without in the open street; and they loose him. 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it,
5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt? 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had said: and they let them go. 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
7 And they bring the colt unto Jesus, and cast on him their garments; and he sat upon him. 7 When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it.
8 And many spread their garments upon the way; and others branches, which they had cut from the fields. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.
9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, Hosanna; Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord: 9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, "Hosanna! " "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
10 Blessed [is] the kingdom that cometh, [the kingdom] of our father David: Hosanna in the highest. 10 "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
11 And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and when he had looked round about upon all things, it being now eventide, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve. 11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went to the temple. He looked around at everything, but since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.
12 And on the morrow, when they were come out from Bethany, he hungered. 12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for it was not the season of figs. 13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs.
14 And he answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit from thee henceforward for ever. And his disciples heard it. 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.
15 And they come to Jerusalem: and he entered into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and them that bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold the doves; 15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple area and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves,
16 and he would not suffer that any man should carry a vessel through the temple. 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17 And he taught, and said unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations? but ye have made it a den of robbers. 17 And as he taught them, he said, "Is it not written: " 'My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations' ? But you have made it 'a den of robbers.' "
18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, for all the multitude was astonished at his teaching. 18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.
19 And every evening he went forth out of the city. 19 When evening came, they went out of the city.
20 And as they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away from the roots. 20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.
21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. 23 "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.
24 Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
25 And whensoever ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught against any one; that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins. "
26 [But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses.] 26 They arrived again in Jerusalem, and while Jesus was walking in the temple courts, the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders came to him.
27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders; 27 "By what authority are you doing these things?" they asked. "And who gave you authority to do this?"
28 and they said unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? or who gave thee this authority to do these things? 28 Jesus replied, "I will ask you one question. Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I am doing these things.
29 And Jesus said unto them, I will ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 29 John's baptism--was it from heaven, or from men? Tell me!"
30 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or from men? answer me. 30 They discussed it among themselves and said, "If we say, 'From heaven,' he will ask, 'Then why didn't you believe him?'
31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; He will say, Why then did ye not believe him? 31 But if we say, 'From men' . . ." (They feared the people, for everyone held that John really was a prophet.)
32 But should we say, From men--they feared the people: for all verily held John to be a prophet. 32 So they answered Jesus, "We don't know." Jesus said, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things."
33 And they answered Jesus and say, We know not. And Jesus saith unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. 33
