1 As they were approaching Yerushalayim, near Beit-Pagei and Beit-Anyah, by the Mount of Olives, Yeshua sent two of his talmidim 1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples,
2 with these instructions: "Go into the village ahead of you; and as soon as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there that has never been 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 asks you, `Why are you doing this?' tell him, `The Lord needs it,' and he will send it here 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 off and found a colt in the street tied in a doorway, and they untied it. 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it,
5 The bystanders said to them, "What are you doing, untying that colt?" 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 They gave the answer Yeshua had told them to give, and they let them continue. 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
7 They brought the colt to Yeshua and threw their robes on 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 carpeted the road with their clothing, while others spread out green branches which they had cut in the fields. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.
9 Those who were ahead and those behind shouted, "Please! Deliver us!"m "Blessed is he who comes in the name of ADONAI!" 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 coming Kingdom of our father David!" and, "You in the highest heaven! Please! Deliver us!" 10 "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
11 Yeshua entered Yerushalayim, went into the Temple courts and took a good look at everything; but since it was now late, he went out with the Twelve to Beit-Anyah. 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, as they came back from Beit-Anyah, he felt hungry. 12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 Spotting in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came up to it, he found nothing but leaves; for it wasn't fig season. 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 He said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again!" And his talmidim heard what he said. 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.
15 On reaching Yerushalayim, he entered the Temple courts and began driving out those who were carrying on business there, both the merchants and their customers. He also knocked over the desks of the money-changers, upset the benches of the pigeon-dealers, 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 refused to let anyone carry merchandise through the Temple courts. 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17 Then, as he taught them, he said, "Isn't it written in the Tanakh, My house will be called a house of prayer for all the Goyimp But you have made it into 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 The head cohanim and the Torah-teachers heard what he said and tried to find a way to do away with him; they were afraid of him, because the crowds were utterly taken by 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 evening came, they left the city. 19 When evening came, they went out of the city.
20 In the morning, as the talmidim passed by, they saw the fig tree withered all the way to its roots. 20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.
21 Kefa remembered and said to Yeshua, "Rabbi! Look! The fig tree that you cursed has dried up!" 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
22 He responded, "Have the kind of trust that comes from God! 22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 Yes! I tell you that whoever does not doubt in his heart but trusts that what he says will happen can say to this mountain, `Go and throw yourself into the sea!' and it will be done for him. 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 tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, trust that you are receiving it, and it will be yours. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
25 And when you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him; so that your Father in heaven may also forgive your offenses." 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 Some manuscripts include verse 26: But if you do not forgive, your Father in heaven will not forgive your offenses." 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 They went back into Yerushalayim; and as he was walking in the Temple courts, there came to him the head cohanim, the Torah-teachers 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 to him, "What s'mikhah do you have that authorizes you to do these things? Who gave you this s'mikhah authorizing you to do them?" 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 Yeshua said to them, "I will ask you just one question: answer me, and I will tell you by what s'mikhah I do these things. 29 John's baptism--was it from heaven, or from men? Tell me!"
30 The immersion of Yochanan -- was it from Heaven or from a human source? 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 They discussed it among themselves: "If we say, `From Heaven,' he will say, `Then why didn't you believe him?' 31 But if we say, 'From men' . . ." (They feared the people, for everyone held that John really was a prophet.)
32 But if we say, `From a human source, . . . '" -- they were afraid of the people, for they all regarded Yochanan as a genuine 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 So they answered Yeshua, "We don't know." "Then," he replied, "I won't tell you by what s'mikhah I do these things." 33
