The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And when they draw near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sends 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 says to them, Go into the village which is over against you, and immediately on entering into it ye will find a colt tied, upon which no [child] of man has ever sat: loose it and lead 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 And if any one say to you, Why do ye this? say, The Lord has need of it; and straightway he sends it 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 departed, and found a colt bound to the door without at the crossway, 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 some of those who stood there said to them, What are ye doing, loosing the colt? 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 And they said to them as Jesus had commanded. And they let them [do it]. 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
7 And they led the colt to Jesus, and cast 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 and many strewed their clothes on the way, and others cut down branches from the trees [and went on strewing them on the way]. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.
9 And those going on before and those following cried out, Hosanna! blessed [be] he that comes in [the] Lord's name. 9 Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted, "Hosanna! " "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"
10 Blessed [be] the coming 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 and into the temple; and having looked round on all things, the hour being 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 And on the morrow, when they were gone out of Bethany, he hungered. 12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 And seeing from afar off a fig-tree which had leaves, he came, if perhaps he might find something on it. And having come up to it he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the time 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 answering he said to it, Let no one eat fruit of thee any more 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 entering into the temple, he began to cast out those who sold and who bought in the temple, and he overthrew the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of the dove-sellers, 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 suffered not that any one should carry any package through the temple. 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17 And he taught saying to 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 they sought how they might destroy him; for they feared him, because all the crowd were astonished at his doctrine. 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 when it was evening he went forth without the city. 19 When evening came, they went out of the city.
20 And passing by early in the morning they saw the fig-tree dried up from the roots. 20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.
21 And Peter, remembering [what Jesus had said], says to him, Rabbi, see, the fig-tree which thou cursedst is dried up. 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
22 And Jesus answering says to them, Have faith in God. 22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 Verily I say to you, that whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou taken away and cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but believe that what he says takes place, whatever he shall say shall come to pass 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 For this reason I say to you, All things whatsoever ye pray for and ask, believe that ye receive it, and it shall come to pass 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 when ye stand praying, forgive if ye have anything against any one, that your Father also who is in the heavens may forgive you your offences. 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 the heavens forgive your offences. 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 walked about in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders come to him, 27 "By what authority are you doing these things?" they asked. "And who gave you authority to do this?"
28 and they say to him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority, that thou shouldest 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 answering said to them, *I* also will ask you one thing, 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 of heaven, or of 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 should say, Of heaven, he will say, Why [then] have ye not believed 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, Of men -- they feared the people; for all held of John that he was truly 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 answering say to Jesus, We do not know. And Jesus [answering] says to them, Neither do *I* tell you by what authority I do these things. 33
