Weymouth New Testament (WNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 When they were getting near Jerusalem and had arrived at Bethphage and Bethany, on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples on in front, with these instructions. 1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples,
2 "Go," He said, "to the village facing you, and immediately on entering it you will find an ass's foal tied up which no one has ever yet ridden: untie him and bring him 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 asks you, `Why are you doing that?' say, `The Master needs it, and will send it back here without delay.'" 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 ass tied up at the front door of a house. They were untying it, 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it,
5 when some of the bystanders called out, "What are you doing, untying the foal?" 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 But on their giving the answer that Jesus had bidden them give, they let them take it. 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
7 So they brought the foal to Jesus, and threw their outer garments over him; and Jesus mounted. 7 When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it.
8 Then many spread their outer garments to carpet the road, and others leafy branches which they had cut down in the fields; 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.
9 while those who led the way and those who followed kept shouting "God save Him!" Blessed be He who 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 Blessings on the coming Kingdom of our forefather David! God in the highest Heavens save Him!" 10 "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
11 So He came into Jerusalem and into the Temple; and after looking round upon everything there, the hour being now 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, after they had left Bethany, He was hungry. 12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry.
13 But in the distance He saw a fig-tree in full leaf, and went to see whether perhaps He could find some figs on it. When however He came to it, He found nothing but leaves (for it was not fig time); 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 He said to the tree, "Let no one ever again eat fruit from thee!" And His disciples heard this. 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 reached Jerusalem, and entering the Temple He began to drive out the buyers and sellers, and upset the money-changers' tables and the stools 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 would not allow any one to carry anything through the Temple. 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17 And He remonstrated with them. "Is it not written," He said, "`My House shall be called The House of Prayer for all the nations?' But you have made it what it now is--a robbers' cave." 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 This the High Priests and Scribes heard, and they began to devise means to destroy Him. For they were afraid of Him, because of the deep impression produced on all the people 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 on, Jesus and His disciples used to leave the city. 19 When evening came, they went out of the city.
20 In the early morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig-tree withered to the roots; 20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots.
21 and Peter, recollecting, said to Him, "Look, Rabbi, the fig-tree which you cursed is withered up." 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"
22 Jesus said to them, "Have faith in God. 22 "Have faith in God," Jesus answered.
23 In solemn truth I tell you that if any one shall say to this mountain, `Remove, and hurl thyself into the sea,' and has no doubt about it in his heart, but stedfastly believes that what he says will happen, it shall 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 That is why I tell you, as to whatever you pray and make request for, if you believe that you have received it it shall 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 But whenever you stand praying, if you have a grievance against any one, forgive it, so that your Father in Heaven may also 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 [] 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 High Priests, Scribes and 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 asked, "By what authority are you doing these things? and who gave you authority 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 "And I will put a question to you," replied Jesus; "answer me, and then 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 John's Baptism--was it of Heavenly or of human origin? 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 So they debated the matter with one another. "Suppose we say, `Heavenly,'" they argued, "he will ask, `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 Or should we say, `human?'" They were afraid of the people; for all agreed in holding John to have been really 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 So they answered Jesus, "We do not know." "Nor do I tell you," said Jesus, "by what authority I do these things." 33
