7 They brought the colt to Jesus, spread their coats on it, and he mounted. 7 When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it.
8 The people gave him a wonderful welcome, some throwing their coats on the street, others spreading out rushes they had cut in the fields. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.
9 Running ahead and following after, they were calling out, Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in God'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 the coming kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in highest heaven! 10 "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
11 He entered Jerusalem, then entered the Temple. He looked around, taking it all in. But by now it was late, so he went back 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.

13 Off in the distance he saw a fig tree in full leaf. He came up to it expecting to find something for breakfast, but found nothing but fig leaves. (It wasn't yet 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 addressed the tree: "No one is going to eat fruit from you again - ever!" And his disciples overheard him. 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 arrived at Jerusalem. Immediately on entering the Temple Jesus started throwing out everyone who had set up shop there, buying and selling. He kicked over the tables of the bankers and the stalls of the pigeon merchants. 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 He didn't let anyone even carry a basket through the Temple. 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts.
17 And then he taught them, quoting this text: My house was designated a house of prayer for the nations; You've turned it into a hangout for 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.' "
