11:1And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,
11:2And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.
11:3And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.
11:4And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.
11:5And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?
11:6And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.
11:7And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.
11:8And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.
11:9And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
11:10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
11:11And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
11:12And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
11:13And 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.
11:14And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
11:15And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;
11:16And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.
11:17And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
11:18And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
11:19And when even was come, he went out of the city.
11:20And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
11:21And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
11:22And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
11:23For 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.
11:24Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
11:25And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
11:26But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.
11:27And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,
11:28And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?
11:29And Jesus answered and said unto them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
11:30The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.
11:31And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?
11:32But if we shall say, Of men; they feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
11:33And they answered and said unto Jesus, We cannot tell. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
12:1And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
12:2And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
12:3And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
12:4And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
12:5And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
12:6Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
12:7But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.
12:8And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
12:9What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
12:10And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
12:11This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
12:12And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.
12:13And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.
12:14And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not?
12:15Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see it.
12:16And they brought it. And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Caesar's.
12:17And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him.
12:18Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
12:19Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man's brother die, and leave his wife behind him, and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
12:20Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
12:21And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
12:22And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
12:23In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
12:24And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
12:25For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
12:26And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
12:27He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
12:28And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
12:29And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
12:30And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
12:31And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
12:32And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
12:33And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
12:34And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.
12:35And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?
12:36For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
12:37David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
12:38And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
12:39And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
12:40Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
12:41And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
12:42And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
12:43And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
12:44For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, even all her living.
13:1And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here!
13:2And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
13:3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,
13:4Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?
13:5And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
13:6For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
13:7And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
13:8For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.
13:9But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
13:10And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
13:11But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
13:12Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death.
13:13And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
13:14But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
13:15And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house:
13:16And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
13:17But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!
13:18And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter.
13:19For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
13:20And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
13:21And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
13:22For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
13:23But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
13:24But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
13:25And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
13:26And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
13:27And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
13:28Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near:
13:29So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
13:30Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
13:31Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
13:32But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
13:33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.
13:34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
13:35Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
13:36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
13:37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
