NRS 6 Then he told this parable: "A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and found none. CEB 7 He said to his gardener, ‘Look, I've come looking for fruit on this fig tree for the past three years, and I've never found any. Cut it down! Why should it continue depleting the soil's nutrients?' NRS 7 So he said to the gardener, "See here! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil?' CEB 8 The gardener responded, ‘Lord, give it one more year, and I will dig around it and give it fertilizer. NRS 8 He replied, "Sir, let it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and put manure on it. CEB 9 Maybe it will produce fruit next year; if not, then you can cut it down.'"

CEB 15 The Lord replied, "Hypocrites! Don't each of you on the Sabbath untie your ox or donkey from its stall and lead it out to get a drink? NRS 15 But the Lord answered him and said, "You hypocrites! Does not each of you on the sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the manger, and lead it away to give it water? CEB 16 Then isn't it necessary that this woman, a daughter of Abraham, bound by Satan for eighteen long years, be set free from her bondage on the Sabbath day?"

It grew and developed into a tree and the birds in the sky nested in its branches." NRS 19 It is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in the garden; it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches." CEB 20 Again he said, "To what can I compare God's kingdom? NRS 20 And again he said, "To what should I compare the kingdom of God?
