1 When they approached Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany near the Mount of Olives, He sent 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 told them, "Go into the village ahead of you. As soon as you enter it, you will find a young donkey tied there, on which no one has ever sat. 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, 'The Lord needs it and will send it back 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 So they went and found a young donkey outside in the street, tied by a door. They untied it, 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it,
5 and some of those standing there said to them, "What are you doing, untying the donkey?" 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 They answered them just as Jesus had said, so they let them go. 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
7 Then they brought the donkey to Jesus 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 spread their robes on the road, and others spread leafy 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 Then those who went ahead and those who followed kept shouting: Hosanna ! Blessed is He 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 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the highest heaven! 10 "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
11 And He went into Jerusalem and into the temple complex. After looking around at everything, since it was already late, He went out 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 when they came out from Bethany, He was hungry. 12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 After seeing in the distance a fig tree with leaves, He went to find out if there was anything on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, because it was not 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 He said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again!" 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 They came to Jerusalem, and He went into the temple complex and began to throw out those buying and selling in the temple. He overturned the money changers' tables and the chairs of those selling 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 would not permit anyone to carry goods through the temple complex. 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17 Then He began to teach them: "Is it not written, My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations ? But you have made it a den of thieves !" 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 Then the chief priests and the scribes heard it and started looking for a way to destroy Him. For they were afraid of Him, because the whole crowd was astonished 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 And whenever evening came, they would go out of the city. 19 When evening came, they went out of the city.
20 Early in the morning, as they were passing by, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots up. 20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.
21 Then Peter remembered and said to Him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree that You cursed is withered." 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
22 Jesus replied to them, "Have faith in God. 22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 I assure you: If anyone says to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, 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, all the things you pray and ask for-believe that you have received them, and you will 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 whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven will also forgive you your wrongdoing. [ 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 you don't forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your wrongdoing."] 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 came again to Jerusalem. As He was walking in the temple complex, the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders came and asked Him, 27 "By what authority are you doing these things?" they asked. "And who gave you authority to do this?"
28 "By what authority are You doing these things? Who gave You 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 Jesus said to them, "I will ask you one question; then answer Me, and I will tell you by what authority I am doing these things. 29 John's baptism--was it from heaven, or from men? Tell me!"
30 Was John's baptism 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 They began to argue 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 men' "-they were afraid of the crowd, because everyone thought that John was 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 Jesus, "We don't know." And Jesus said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things." 33
