Mark 11
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And when they come near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage, and Bethany, to the Mount of Olives, He sends forth two of His disciples, 2and says to them, “Go away into the village that is in front of you, and immediately, entering into it, you will find a colt tied, on which no one of men has sat, having loosed it, bring [it]: 3and if anyone may say to you, Why do you do this? Say that the LORD has need of it, and immediately He will send it here.” 4And they went away, and found the colt tied at the door outside, by the two ways, and they loose it, 5and certain of those standing there said to them, “What do you—loosing the colt?” 6And they said to them as Jesus commanded, and they permitted them. 7And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on it, and He sat on it, 8and many spread their garments in the way, and others were cutting down branches from the trees, and were strewing in the way.

9And those going before and those following were crying out, saying, “Hosanna! Blessed [is] He who is coming in the Name of the LORD;

10blessed is the coming kingdom, in the Name of the LORD, of our father David; Hosanna in the highest!”

11And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple, and having looked around on all things, it being now evening, He went forth to Bethany with the Twelve.

12And on the next day, they having come forth from Bethany, He hungered, 13and having seen a fig tree far off having leaves, He came, if perhaps He will find anything in it, and having come to it, He found nothing except leaves, for it was not a time of figs, 14and Jesus answering said to it, “No longer from you—throughout the age—may any eat fruit”; and His disciples were hearing.

15And they come to Jerusalem, and Jesus having gone into the temple, began to cast forth those selling and buying in the temple, and He overthrew the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those selling the doves, 16and He did not permit that any might carry a vessel through the temple, 17and He was teaching, saying to them, “Has it not been written: My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations? And you made it a den of robbers!” 18And the scribes and the chief priests heard, and they were seeking how they will destroy Him, for they were afraid of Him, because all the multitude was astonished at His teaching;

19and when evening came, He was going forth outside the city.

20And in the morning, passing by, they saw the fig tree having been dried up from the roots, 21and Peter having remembered says to Him, “Rabbi, behold, the fig tree that You cursed is dried up.” 22And Jesus answering says to them, “Have faith from God; 23for truly I say to you that whoever may say to this mountain, Be taken up, and be cast into the sea, and may not doubt in his heart, but may believe that the things that he says come to pass, it will be to him whatever he may say. 24Because of this I say to you, all whatever—praying—you ask, believe that you receive, and it will be to you. 25And whenever you may stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, that your Father who is in the heavens may also forgive you your trespasses; 26[[and, if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in the heavens forgive your trespasses.”]]

27And they come again to Jerusalem, and in the temple, as He is walking, there come to Him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, 28and they say to Him, “By what authority do You do these things? And who gave You this authority that You may do these things?” 29And Jesus answering said to them, “I will question you—I also—one word; and answer Me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things; 30the immersion of John—was it from Heaven or from men? Answer Me.” 31And they were reasoning with themselves, saying, “If we may say, From Heaven, He will say, Why then did you not believe him? 32But if we may say, From men…” They were fearing the people, for all were holding that John was indeed a prophet; 33and answering they say to Jesus, “We have not known”; and Jesus answering says to them, “Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.”
