11:1 And when they drew near to Jerusalem, and to Bethany at the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples
2 And said to them: Go into the village that is opposite to you, and, immediately on entering it, you shall find a colt tied, on which no man has ever yet sat: loose and bring him.
3 And if any one say to you: Why do you this? say: The Lord has need of him, and he will immediately send him hither again.
4 And they went and found the colt tied at the door without at the turn of the street, and they loosed him.
5 And some of those standing there said to them: What do you loosing the colt?
6 And they answered them as Jesus’ had said; and they gave them permission.
7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and threw their clothes upon him, and he sat on him.
8 And many spread their mantles in the road, but others, bundles of straw, having cut them from the fields.
9 And those that went before, and those that followed, cried: Hosanna, blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord:
10 blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David: Hosanna in the highest.
11 And he went into Jerusalem into the temple; and having looked around on all things, the hour being now late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
12 And, on the morrow, as they came out from Bethany, he was hungry.
13 And seeing a fig-tree at a distance 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 was not the season for figs.
14 And answering he said to it: No more for ever may any one eat fruit from thee. And his disciples heard him.
15 And they came to Jerusalem. And entering into the temple he began to drive out those that sold and those that bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers, and the seats of those that sold doves,
16 And permitted no one to carry a vessel through the temple;
17 and taught and said to them: Is it not written that my house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations? But you have made it a den of robbers.
18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard, and sought how they might destroy him; for they feared him, for all the multitude were astonished at his teaching.
19 And when it became late he went forth out of the city.
20 And as they passed by in the morning they saw the fig-tree withered from the roots.
21 And Peter calling it to mind said to him: Rabbi, See, the fig-tree that thou cursedst has withered.
22 And Jesus answered and said to them: Have faith in God.
23 Verily I say to you that whoever shall say to this mountain: Be taken up and thrown into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he says shall take place, it shall be done for him.
24 Wherefore I say to you, all things whatever you pray for and ask, believe that you receive, and you shall have them.
25 And when you stand praying, forgive if you have any thing against any one, that your Father who is in the heavens may forgive you your offenses.
27 And they came again into Jerusalem. And as he was walking in the temple, there came to him the chief priests and the scribes and the elders,
28 and said to him: By what authority doest thou these things? Or who gave thee this authority that thou shouldst do these things?
29 But Jesus said to them: I will ask you one word, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these, things.
30 The baptism of John, was it of heaven or of men? Answer me.
31 And they reasoned among themselves, saying: If we say: Of heaven, he will reply: Why then did you not believe him?
32 but shall we say: Of men, they feared the people; for all held John that he was a prophet indeed.
33 And they answered Jesus and said: We know not. And Jesus said to them: Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things.
