11:1 And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, to Bethphage, and
Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his
11:2 And saith to them, Go into the village over against you:
and as soon as ye have entered into it, ye shall find a colt
tied, on which never man sat; loose him, and bring [him].
11:3 And if any man shall say to you, Why do ye this? say ye
that the Lord hath need of him; and immediately he will send
11:4 And they went, and found the colt tied by the door without,
in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.
11:5 And certain of them that stood there, said to them, What do
ye, loosing the colt?
11:6 And they said to them even as Jesus had commanded; and they
let them go.
11:7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments
on him; and he sat upon him.
11:8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut
down branches off trees, and strewed [them] in the way.
11:9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried,
saying, Hosanna: Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the
11:10 Blessed [be] the kingdom of our Father David, that cometh
in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
11:11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and
when he had looked round upon all things, it being now evening,
he went out to Bethany, with the twelve.
11:12 And on the morrow, when they had come from Bethany, he was
11:13 And seeing a fig-tree afar off, having leaves, he came, if
haply he might find any thing on it: and when he came to it, he
found nothing but leaves: for the time of figs had not yet
11:14 And Jesus answered and said to it, Let no man eat fruit of
thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard [it].
11:15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the
temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the
temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the
seats of them that sold doves;
11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry [any]
vessel through the temple.
11:17 And he taught, saying to them, Is it not written, My house
shall be called by all nations the house of prayer? but ye have
made it a den of thieves.
11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard [it], and sought
how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all
the people were astonished at his doctrine.
11:19 And when evening had come, he went out of the city.
11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the
fig-tree dried up from the roots.
11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance, saith to him, Master,
behold, the fig-tree which thou cursedst is withered.
11:22 And Jesus answering, saith to them, Have faith in God.
11:23 For verily I say to you, that whoever shall say to this
mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and
shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that the things
which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatever he
11:24 Therefore I say to you, Whatever things ye desire when ye
pray, believe that ye receive [them], and ye shall have [them].
11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught
against any: that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive
you your trespasses.
11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father who is
in heaven forgive your trespasses.
11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in
the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the
scribes, and the elders,
11:28 And say to him, By what authority doest thou these things?
and who gave thee this authority to do these things?
11:29 And Jesus answered and said to them, I will also ask of
you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what
authority I do these things.
11:30 The baptism of John, was [it] from heaven, or from men?
11:31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall
say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?
11:32 But if we shall say, from men; they feared the people: for
all [men] counted John that he was a prophet indeed.
11:33 And they answered and said to Jesus, We cannot tell. And
Jesus answering saith to them, Neither do I tell you by what
authority I do these things.
