1: And when they draw nigh unto Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth two of his disciples, 2: and saith unto them, Go your way into the village that is over against you: and straightway as ye enter into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon no man ever yet sat; loose him, and bring him. 3: And if any one say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye, The Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him back hither. 4: And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door without in the open street; and they loose him. 5: And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt? 6: And they said unto them even as Jesus had said: and they let them go. 7: And they bring the colt unto Jesus, and cast on him their garments; and he sat upon him. 8: And many spread their garments upon the way; and others branches, which they had cut from the fields. 9: And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, Hosanna; Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord: 10: Blessed [is] the kingdom that cometh, [the kingdom] of our father David: Hosanna in the highest. 11: And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and when he had looked round about upon all things, it being now eventide, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve. 12: And on the morrow, when they were come out from Bethany, he hungered. 13: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for it was not the season of figs. 14: And he answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit from thee henceforward for ever. And his disciples heard it. 15: And they come to Jerusalem: and he entered into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and them that bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold the doves; 16: and he would not suffer that any man should carry a vessel through the temple. 17: And he taught, and said unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations? but ye have made it a den of robbers. 18: And the chief priests and the scribes heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, for all the multitude was astonished at his teaching. 19: And every evening he went forth out of the city. 20: And as they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away from the roots. 21: And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. 22: And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23: Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. 24: Therefore I say unto you, All things whatsoever ye pray and ask for, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. 25: And whensoever ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have aught against any one; that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26: [But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses.] 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; 28: and they said unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? or who gave thee this authority to do these things? 29: And Jesus said unto them, I will ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things. 30: The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or from men? answer me. 31: And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; He will say, Why then did ye not believe him? 32: But should we say, From men--they feared the people: for all verily held John to be a prophet. 33: And they answered Jesus and say, We know not. And Jesus saith unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
