Mark 11 ©
Christ rideth into Jerusalem in triumph: curseth a barren fig tree: driveth the buyers and sellers out of the temple. The cursed fig tree is dried up: Christ exhorteth to faith in prayer, and to forgiveness of enemies: and silenceth the priests and others, who called in question his authority.
And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door *without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.
And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?
And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.
And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and *strawed them in the way.
Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: h*Hosanna in the highest.
¶kAnd on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
lAnd seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if *haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, 2Have faith in God.
sFor *verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
vBut if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
