New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now when they drew near Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at 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 He said to them, "Go into the village opposite you; and as soon as you have entered it you will find a colt tied, on which no one has sat. Loose it and bring it. 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 anyone says to you, 'Why are you doing this?' say, 'The Lord has need of it,' and immediately he will send it 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 So they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door outside on the street, and they loosed it. 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it,
5 But some of those who stood there said to them, "What are you doing, loosing the colt?" 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 And they spoke to them just as Jesus had commanded. 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 colt to Jesus and threw their clothes 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 clothes on the road, and others cut down leafy branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.
9 Then those who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "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 kingdom of our father David That comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!" 10 "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
11 And Jesus went into Jerusalem and into the temple. So when He had looked around at all things, as the hour 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 Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. 12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. 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 In response Jesus said to it, "Let no one eat fruit from you ever 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 So they came to Jerusalem. Then Jesus went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats 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 And He would not allow anyone to carry wares through the temple. 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17 Then He taught, saying to them, "Is it not written, 'My house shall 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 And the scribes and chief priests heard it and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because all the people were astonished 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 evening had come, He went out of the city. 19 When evening came, they went out of the city.
20 Now in the morning, as they passed by, 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, said to Him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away." 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
22 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God. 22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 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 things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive 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, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses. 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 in heaven forgive your trespasses." 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 Then they came again to Jerusalem. And as He was walking in the temple, the chief priests, 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 they said to Him, "By what authority are You doing these things? And 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 But Jesus answered and said to them, "I also will ask you one question; then 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 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 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say, 'Why then 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 if we say, 'From men' "--they feared the people, for all counted John to have been a prophet indeed. 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 and said to Jesus, "We do not know." And Jesus answered and said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things." 33
