Matthew 21:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

A fig-tree (συκῆν μίαν)

Lit., one single fig-tree. Rev., in margin.

Presently (παραχρῆμα)

Presently, in popular speech, has acquired something of a future force. I will do such a thing presently means, I will do it, not immediately, but soon. The rendering here was correct in the older English sense of instantly. So constantly in Shakspeare:

"Prospero. Go, bring the rabble,

O'er whom I gave thee pow'r, here, to this place.

Ariel. Presently?

Pros. Ay, with a twink.

Ar. Before you can say 'come,' and 'go,'

And breathe twice; and cry 'so so;'

Each one tripping on his toe

Will be here."

Temptest, iv., 1.

Compare Matthew 21:20. "How did the fig-tree immediately wither away?" Rev.
