Untie it and bring it here.
3 "If anyone says to you, 'Why are you doing this?' you say, 'The Lord has need of it'; and immediately he will send it back here." 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 away and found a colt tied at the door, outside in 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 of the bystanders were saying to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?" 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 They spoke to them just as Jesus had told them, and they gave them permission. 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
7 They brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats 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 And many spread their coats in the road, and others spread leafy 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.

13 Seeing at a distance a fig tree in leaf, He went to see if perhaps He would find anything on it; and when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for 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 were listening. 14 Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it.

But you have made it a ROBBERS' DEN." 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.' "

20 As they were passing by in the morning, 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.

22 And Jesus answered saying to them, "Have faith in God. 22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 "Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted 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 say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
25 "Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions. 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 do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions."] 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. And as He was walking in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders came to Him, 27 "By what authority are you doing these things?" they asked. "And who gave you authority to do this?"
28 and began saying to Him, "By what authority are You doing these things, or 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.

30 "Was the baptism of John 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 reasoning among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say, 'Then why did you 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 shall we say, 'From men '?"-they were afraid of the people, for everyone considered John to have been a real 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 Answering Jesus, they said, "We do not know." And Jesus said to them, "Nor will I tell you by what authority I do these things." 33
