Mark, Chapter 11

11:1 And when they draw near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sends two of his disciples,
11:2 and says to them, Go your+ way into the village that is across from you+: and right away as you+ enter into it, you+ will find a colt tied, on which no man ever yet sat; loose him, and bring him.
11:3 And if anyone says to you+, Why do you+ do this? say+, The Lord has need of him; and right away he will send him back here.
11:4 And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door outside in the open street; and they loose him.
11:5 And certain of those who stood there said to them, What do you+ do, loosing the colt?
11:6 And they said to them even as Jesus had said: and they let them go.
11:7 And they bring the colt to Jesus, and cast on him their garments; and he sat on him.
11:8 And many spread their garments on the way; and others branches, which they had cut from the fields.
11:9 And those who went before, and those who followed, cried, Hosanna; Blessed [is] he who comes in the name of Yahweh:
11:10 Blessed [is] the kingdom that comes, [the kingdom] of our father David: Hosanna in the highest.
11:11 And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and when he had looked around on all things, it being now evening, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
11:12 And on the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, he was hungry.
11:13 And seeing a fig tree far off having leaves, he came, if perhaps he might find anything on it: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for it wasn't the season of figs.
11:14 And he answered and said to it, No man eat fruit from you from now on forever. And his disciples heard it.
11:15 And they come to Jerusalem: and he entered into the temple, and began to cast out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of those who sold the doves;
11:16 and he would not allow that any man should carry a vessel through the temple.
11:17 And he taught, and said to them, Is it not written, My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations? But you+ have made it a den of robbers.
11:18 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.
11:19 And when evening came they went forth out of the city.
11:20 And as they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away from the roots.
11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance says to him, Rabbi, look, the fig tree which you cursed is withered away.
11:22 And Jesus answering says to them, Have faith in God.
11:23 Truly I say to you+, Whoever will say to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea; and will not doubt in his heart, but will believe that what he says comes to pass; he will have it.
11:24 Therefore I say to you+, All things that you+ pray and ask for, believe that you+ receive them, and you+ will have them.
11:25 And whenever you+ stand praying, forgive, if you+ have anything against anyone; that your+ Father also who is in heaven may forgive you+ 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 they said to him, By what authority do you do these things? Or who gave you this authority to do these things?
11:29 And Jesus said to them, I will 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? Answer me.
11:31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we will say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did you+ not believe him?
11:32 But should we say, From men--they feared the multitude: for all truly held John to be a prophet.
11:33 And they answered Jesus and say, We don't know. And Jesus says to them, Neither do I tell you+ by what authority I do these things.
