1 When Jesus and his followers approached Jerusalem, they came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives. Jesus gave two disciples a task, 1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples,
2 saying to them, "Go into the village over there. As soon as you enter it, you will find tied up there a colt that no one has ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 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 If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?' say, ‘Its master needs it, and he will send it back right away.'" 3 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you doing this?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.' "
4 They went and found a colt tied to a gate outside on the street, and they untied it. 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it,
5 Some people standing around said to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?" 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 They told them just what Jesus said, and they left them alone. 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
7 They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their clothes upon it, and he sat on it. 7 When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it.
8 Many people spread out their clothes on the road while others spread branches cut from the fields. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.
9 Those in front of him and those following were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessings on the one who comes 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 Blessings on the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest!" 10 "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple. After he looked around at everything, because it was already late in the evening, he returned to 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 The next day, after leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 From far away, he noticed a fig tree in leaf, so he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing except leaves, since it wasn't the season for 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 So he said to it, "No one will ever again eat your fruit!" His disciples heard this. 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.
15 They came into Jerusalem. After entering the temple, he threw out those who were selling and buying there. He pushed over the tables used for currency exchange and the chairs of those who sold 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 He didn't allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17 He taught them, "Hasn't it been written, My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations? But you've turned it into a hideout for crooks." 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 The chief priests and legal experts heard this and tried to find a way to destroy him. They regarded him as dangerous because the whole crowd was enthralled 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 When it was evening, Jesus and his disciples went outside the city. 19 When evening came, they went out of the city.
20 Early in the morning, as Jesus and his disciples were walking along, they saw the fig tree withered from the root up. 20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.
21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look how the fig tree you cursed has dried up." 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
22 Jesus responded to them, "Have faith in God! 22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 I assure you that whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea'—and doesn't waver but believes that what is said will really happen—it will happen. 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 to you, whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you will receive it, and it will be so for you. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
25 And whenever you stand up to pray, if you have something against anyone, forgive so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your wrongdoings." 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. "
27 Jesus and his disciples entered Jerusalem again. As Jesus was walking around the temple, the chief priests, legal experts, and elders came to him. 27 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.
28 They asked, "What kind of authority do you have for doing these things? Who gave you this authority to do them?" 28 "By what authority are you doing these things?" they asked. "And who gave you authority to do this?"
29 Jesus said to them, "I have a question for you. Give me an answer, then I'll tell you what kind of authority I have to do these things. 29 Jesus replied, "I will ask you one question. Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I am doing these things.
30 Was John's baptism of heavenly or of human origin? Answer me." 30 John's baptism--was it from heaven, or from men? Tell me!"
31 They argued among themselves, "If we say, ‘It's of heavenly origin,' he'll say, ‘Then why didn't you believe him?' 31 They discussed it among themselves and said, "If we say, 'From heaven,' he will ask, 'Then why didn't you believe him?'
32 But we can't say, ‘It's of earthly origin.'" They said this because they were afraid of the crowd, because they all thought John was a prophet. 32 But if we say, 'From men' . . ." (They feared the people, for everyone held that John really was a prophet.)
33 They answered Jesus, "We don't know." Jesus replied, "Neither will I tell you what kind of authority I have to do these things." 33 So they answered Jesus, "We don't know." Jesus said, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things."
