Mark 11

CEB 1 When Jesus and his followers approached Jerusalem, they came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives. Jesus gave two disciples a task, NRS 1 When they were approaching Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples CEB 2 saying to them, "Go into the village over there. As soon as you enter it, you will find tied up there a colt that no one has ridden. Untie it and bring it here. NRS 2 and said to them, "Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it. CEB 3 If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?' say, ‘Its master needs it, and he will send it back right away.'" NRS 3 If anyone says to you, "Why are you doing this?' just say this, "The Lord needs it and will send it back here immediately.' " CEB 4 They went and found a colt tied to a gate outside on the street, and they untied it. NRS 4 They went away and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. As they were untying it, CEB 5 Some people standing around said to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?" NRS 5 some of the bystanders said to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?" CEB 6 They told them just what Jesus said, and they left them alone. NRS 6 They told them what Jesus had said; and they allowed them to take it. CEB 7 They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their clothes upon it, and he sat on it. NRS 7 Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it. CEB 8 Many people spread out their clothes on the road while others spread branches cut from the fields. NRS 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields. CEB 9 Those in front of him and those following were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! NRS 9 Then those who went ahead and those who followed were shouting, "Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! CEB 10 Blessings on the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest!" NRS 10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest heaven!" CEB 11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple. After he looked around at everything, because it was already late in the evening, he returned to Bethany with the Twelve. NRS 11 Then he entered Jerusalem and went into the temple; and when he had looked around at everything, as it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve. CEB 12 The next day, after leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. NRS 12 On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. CEB 13 From far away, he noticed a fig tree in leaf, so he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing except leaves, since it wasn't the season for figs. NRS 13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see whether perhaps he would find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. CEB 14 So he said to it, "No one will ever again eat your fruit!" His disciples heard this. NRS 14 He said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard it. CEB 15 They came into Jerusalem. After entering the temple, he threw out those who were selling and buying there. He pushed over the tables used for currency exchange and the chairs of those who sold doves. NRS 15 Then they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling and those who were buying in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves; CEB 16 He didn't allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. NRS 16 and he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. CEB 17 He taught them, "Hasn't it been written, My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations? But you've turned it into a hideout for crooks." NRS 17 He was teaching and saying, "Is it not written, "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations'? But you have made it a den of robbers." CEB 18 The chief priests and legal experts heard this and tried to find a way to destroy him. They regarded him as dangerous because the whole crowd was enthralled at his teaching. NRS 18 And when the chief priests and the scribes heard it, they kept looking for a way to kill him; for they were afraid of him, because the whole crowd was spellbound by his teaching. CEB 19 When it was evening, Jesus and his disciples went outside the city. NRS 19 And when evening came, Jesus and his disciples went out of the city. CEB 20 Early in the morning, as Jesus and his disciples were walking along, they saw the fig tree withered from the root up. NRS 20 In the morning as they passed by, they saw the fig tree withered away to its roots. CEB 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look how the fig tree you cursed has dried up." NRS 21 Then Peter remembered and said to him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered." CEB 22 Jesus responded to them, "Have faith in God! NRS 22 Jesus answered them, "Have faith in God. CEB 23 I assure you that whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea'—and doesn't waver but believes that what is said will really happen—it will happen. NRS 23 Truly I tell you, if you say to this mountain, "Be taken up and thrown into the sea,' and if you do not doubt in your heart, but believe that what you say will come to pass, it will be done for you. CEB 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you will receive it, and it will be so for you. NRS 24 So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. CEB 25 And whenever you stand up to pray, if you have something against anyone, forgive so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your wrongdoings." NRS 25 "Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone; so that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your trespasses." CEB 27 Jesus and his disciples entered Jerusalem again. As Jesus was walking around the temple, the chief priests, legal experts, and elders came to him. NRS 27 Again they came to Jerusalem. As he was walking in the temple, the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders came to him CEB 28 They asked, "What kind of authority do you have for doing these things? Who gave you this authority to do them?" NRS 28 and said, "By what authority are you doing these things? Who gave you this authority to do them?" CEB 29 Jesus said to them, "I have a question for you. Give me an answer, then I'll tell you what kind of authority I have to do these things. NRS 29 Jesus said to them, "I will ask you one question; answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. CEB 30 Was John's baptism of heavenly or of human origin? Answer me." NRS 30 Did the baptism of John come from heaven, or was it of human origin? Answer me." CEB 31 They argued among themselves, "If we say, ‘It's of heavenly origin,' he'll say, ‘Then why didn't you believe him?' NRS 31 They argued with one another, "If we say, "From heaven,' he will say, "Why then did you not believe him?' CEB 32 But we can't say, ‘It's of earthly origin.'" They said this because they were afraid of the crowd, because they all thought John was a prophet. NRS 32 But shall we say, "Of human origin'?"—they were afraid of the crowd, for all regarded John as truly a prophet. CEB 33 They answered Jesus, "We don't know." Jesus replied, "Neither will I tell you what kind of authority I have to do these things." NRS 33 So they answered Jesus, "We do not know." And Jesus said to them, "Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things."
