Matthew 21 VUL/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Latin Vulgate (VUL) New International Version (NIV)
1 et cum adpropinquassent Hierosolymis et venissent Bethfage ad montem Oliveti tunc Iesus misit duos discipulos 1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples,
2 dicens eis ite in castellum quod contra vos est et statim invenietis asinam alligatam et pullum cum ea solvite et adducite mihi 2 saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me.
3 et si quis vobis aliquid dixerit dicite quia Dominus his opus habet et confestim dimittet eos 3 If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away."
4 hoc autem factum est ut impleretur quod dictum est per prophetam dicentem 4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
5 dicite filiae Sion ecce rex tuus venit tibi mansuetus et sedens super asinam et pullum filium subiugalis 5 "Say to the Daughter of Zion, 'See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.' "
6 euntes autem discipuli fecerunt sicut praecepit illis Iesus 6 The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them.
7 et adduxerunt asinam et pullum et inposuerunt super eis vestimenta sua et eum desuper sedere fecerunt 7 They brought the donkey and the colt, placed their cloaks on them, and Jesus sat on them.
8 plurima autem turba straverunt vestimenta sua in via alii autem caedebant ramos de arboribus et sternebant in via 8 A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.
9 turbae autem quae praecedebant et quae sequebantur clamabant dicentes osanna Filio David benedictus qui venturus est in nomine Domini osanna in altissimis 9 The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
10 et cum intrasset Hierosolymam commota est universa civitas dicens quis est hic 10 When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"
11 populi autem dicebant hic est Iesus propheta a Nazareth Galilaeae 11 The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."
12 et intravit Iesus in templum Dei et eiciebat omnes vendentes et ementes in templo et mensas nummulariorum et cathedras vendentium columbas evertit 12 Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves.
13 et dicit eis scriptum est domus mea domus orationis vocabitur vos autem fecistis eam speluncam latronum 13 "It is written," he said to them, " 'My house will be called a house of prayer,' but you are making it a 'den of robbers.' "
14 et accesserunt ad eum caeci et claudi in templo et sanavit eos 14 The blind and the lame came to him at the temple, and he healed them.
15 videntes autem principes sacerdotum et scribae mirabilia quae fecit et pueros clamantes in templo et dicentes osanna Filio David indignati sunt 15 But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple area, "Hosanna to the Son of David," they were indignant.
16 et dixerunt ei audis quid isti dicant Iesus autem dicit eis utique numquam legistis quia ex ore infantium et lactantium perfecisti laudem 16 "Do you hear what these children are saying?" they asked him. "Yes," replied Jesus, "have you never read, " 'From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise' ?"
17 et relictis illis abiit foras extra civitatem in Bethaniam ibique mansit 17 And he left them and went out of the city to Bethany, where he spent the night.
18 mane autem revertens in civitatem esuriit 18 Early in the morning, as he was on his way back to the city, he was hungry.
19 et videns fici arborem unam secus viam venit ad eam et nihil invenit in ea nisi folia tantum et ait illi numquam ex te fructus nascatur in sempiternum et arefacta est continuo ficulnea 19 Seeing a fig tree by the road, he went up to it but found nothing on it except leaves. Then he said to it, "May you never bear fruit again!" Immediately the tree withered.
20 et videntes discipuli mirati sunt dicentes quomodo continuo aruit 20 When the disciples saw this, they were amazed. "How did the fig tree wither so quickly?" they asked.
21 respondens autem Iesus ait eis amen dico vobis si habueritis fidem et non haesitaveritis non solum de ficulnea facietis sed et si monti huic dixeritis tolle et iacta te in mare fiet 21 Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done.
22 et omnia quaecumque petieritis in oratione credentes accipietis 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
23 et cum venisset in templum accesserunt ad eum docentem principes sacerdotum et seniores populi dicentes in qua potestate haec facis et quis tibi dedit hanc potestatem 23 Jesus entered the temple courts, and, while he was teaching, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him. "By what authority are you doing these things?" they asked. "And who gave you this authority?"
24 respondens Iesus dixit illis interrogabo vos et ego unum sermonem quem si dixeritis mihi et ego vobis dicam in qua potestate haec facio 24 Jesus replied, "I will also ask you one question. If you answer me, I will tell you by what authority I am doing these things.
25 baptismum Iohannis unde erat e caelo an ex hominibus at illi cogitabant inter se dicentes si dixerimus e caelo dicet nobis quare ergo non credidistis illi 25 John's baptism--where did it come from? Was it from heaven, or from men?" They discussed it among themselves and said, "If we say, 'From heaven,' he will ask, 'Then why didn't you believe him?'
26 si autem dixerimus ex hominibus timemus turbam omnes enim habent Iohannem sicut prophetam 26 But if we say, 'From men'--we are afraid of the people, for they all hold that John was a prophet."
27 et respondentes Iesu dixerunt nescimus ait illis et ipse nec ego dico vobis in qua potestate haec facio 27 So they answered Jesus, "We don't know." Then he said, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.
28 quid autem vobis videtur homo habebat duos filios et accedens ad primum dixit fili vade hodie operare in vinea mea 28 "What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, 'Son, go and work today in the vineyard.'
29 ille autem respondens ait nolo postea autem paenitentia motus abiit 29 " 'I will not,' he answered, but later he changed his mind and went.
30 accedens autem ad alterum dixit similiter at ille respondens ait eo domine et non ivit 30 "Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, 'I will, sir,' but he did not go.
31 quis ex duobus fecit voluntatem patris dicunt novissimus dicit illis Iesus amen dico vobis quia publicani et meretrices praecedunt vos in regno Dei 31 "Which of the two did what his father wanted?" "The first," they answered. Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, the tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God ahead of you.
32 venit enim ad vos Iohannes in via iustitiae et non credidistis ei publicani autem et meretrices crediderunt ei vos autem videntes nec paenitentiam habuistis postea ut crederetis ei 32 For John came to you to show you the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes did. And even after you saw this, you did not repent and believe him.
33 aliam parabolam audite homo erat pater familias qui plantavit vineam et sepem circumdedit ei et fodit in ea torcular et aedificavit turrem et locavit eam agricolis et peregre profectus est 33 "Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey.
34 cum autem tempus fructuum adpropinquasset misit servos suos ad agricolas ut acciperent fructus eius 34 When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit.
35 et agricolae adprehensis servis eius alium ceciderunt alium occiderunt alium vero lapidaverunt 35 "The tenants seized his servants; they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third.
36 iterum misit alios servos plures prioribus et fecerunt illis similiter 36 Then he sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way.
37 novissime autem misit ad eos filium suum dicens verebuntur filium meum 37 Last of all, he sent his son to them. 'They will respect my son,' he said.
38 agricolae autem videntes filium dixerunt intra se hic est heres venite occidamus eum et habebimus hereditatem eius 38 "But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him and take his inheritance.'
39 et adprehensum eum eiecerunt extra vineam et occiderunt 39 So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.
40 cum ergo venerit dominus vineae quid faciet agricolis illis 40 "Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?"
41 aiunt illi malos male perdet et vineam locabit aliis agricolis qui reddant ei fructum temporibus suis 41 "He will bring those wretches to a wretched end," they replied, "and he will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time."
42 dicit illis Iesus numquam legistis in scripturis lapidem quem reprobaverunt aedificantes hic factus est in caput anguli a Domino factum est istud et est mirabile in oculis nostris 42 Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: " 'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes' ?
43 ideo dico vobis quia auferetur a vobis regnum Dei et dabitur genti facienti fructus eius 43 "Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.
44 et qui ceciderit super lapidem istum confringetur super quem vero ceciderit conteret eum 44 He who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed."
45 et cum audissent principes sacerdotum et Pharisaei parabolas eius cognoverunt quod de ipsis diceret 45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard Jesus' parables, they knew he was talking about them.
46 et quaerentes eum tenere timuerunt turbas quoniam sicut prophetam eum habebant 46 They looked for a way to arrest him, but they were afraid of the crowd because the people held that he was a prophet.
