1
And when they came nigh to Hierusalem, vnto Bethphage, and Bethanie, at the mount of Oliues, hee sendeth foorth two of his disciples,
2
And saith vnto them, Goe your way into the village ouer against you, and assoone as ye bee entred into it, yee shall finde a colt tied, whereon neuer man sate, loose him, and bring him.
3
And if any man say vnto you, Why doe yee this?
Say yee, that the Lord hath need of him: and straightway he will send him hither.
4
And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the doore without, in a place where two wayes met: and they loose him.
5
And certaine of them that stood there, said vnto them, What doe ye loosing the colt?
6
And they said vnto them euen as Iesus had commanded: and they let them goe.
7
And they brought the colt to Iesus, and cast their garments on him, and he sate vpon him.
8
And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut downe branches of the trees, and strawed them in the way.
9
And they that went before, and they that followed, cryed, saying, Hosanna, blessed is hee that commeth in the Name of the Lord.
10
Blessed be the kingdome of our father Dauid, that commeth in the Name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest.
11
And Iesus entred into Hierusalem, and into the Temple, and when hee had looked round about vpon all things, & now the euentide was come, he went out vnto Bethanie with the twelue.
12
And on the morow when they were come from Bethanie, hee was hungry.
13
And seeing a figtree a farre off, hauing leaues, hee came, if haply hee might find any thing thereon, & when he came to it, hee found nothing but leaues: for the time of figs was not yet.
14
And Iesus answered, and said vnto it, No man eate fruite of thee hereafter for euer.
And his disciples heard it.
15
And they come to Hierusalem, and Iesus went into the Temple, and beganne to cast out them that sold and bought in the Temple, and ouerthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doues,
16
And would not suffer that any man should carie any vessell thorow the Temple.
17
And he taught, saying vnto them, Is it not written, My house shalbe called of all nations the house of prayer?
but ye haue made it a den of theeues.
18
And the Scribes and chiefe Priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
19
And when Euen was come, Hee went out of the citie.
20
And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried vp from the roots.
21
And Peter calling to remembrance saith vnto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst, is withered away.
22
And Iesus answering, saith vnto them, Haue faith in God.
23
For verely I say vnto you, that whosoeuer shall say vnto this mountaine, Bee thou remoued, and bee thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall beleeue that those things which hee saith, shall come to passe: he shal haue whatsoeuer he saith.
24
Therfore I say vnto you, What things soeuer ye desire when ye pray, beleeue that ye receiue them, and ye shall haue them.
25
And when ye stand, praying, forgiue, if ye haue ought against any: that your Father also which is in heauen, may forgiue you your trespasses.
26
But if you doe not forgiue, neither will your Father which is in heauen, forgiue your trespasses.
27
And they come againe to Hierusalem, and as he was walking in the Temple, there come to him the chiefe Priests, and the Scribes, & the Elders,
28
And say vnto him, By what authoritie doest thou these things?
and who gaue thee this authority to doe these things?
29
And Iesus answered, and saide vnto them, I will also aske of you one question, and answere me, and I will tell you by what authoritie I doe these things.
30
The baptisme of Iohn, was it from heauen, or of men?
Answere me.
31
And they reasoned with themselues, saying, If we shall say, From heauen, he will say, Why then did ye not beleeue him?
32
But if we shall say, Of men, they feared the people: for all men counted Iohn, that he was a Prophet indeed.
33
And they answered and said vnto Iesus, We cannot tell.
And Iesus answering, saith vnto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I doe these things.
