1 And when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, to the mountain of the olive trees, he sends two of the disciples of himself, and says to them:
2 Go you into the town that opposite you; and immediately entering into her, you will find a colt having been tied, upon which no one of men has sat; having loosed him lead you.
3 And if any one to you should say: Why do you this? say you: That the master of him need has; and immediately him he will send here.
4 They went and, and found a colt having been tied near the door without in the street; and they loosen him.
5 And some of those there standing said to them: What do you loosing the colt?
6 They and said to them even as commanded the Jesus; and they suffered them.
7 And they led the colt to the Jesus, and they threw upon him the mantles of themselves; and he sat upon him.
8 Many and the mantles of themselves spread in the way; others and branches cut off from the trees, and scattered in the way.
9 And those going before and those following did cry, saying: Hosanna; worthy of blessing be coming in name of Lord;
10 worthy of blessing the coming kingdom of the father of us David; Hosanna in the highest.
11 And entered into Jerusalem the Jesus, and into the temple; and having looked round on all, evening now being the hour, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
12 And the next day coming out of them from Bethany, he was hungry;
13 and seeing a fig tree at a distance, having leavens, he went, if perhaps he will find any thing on her; and coming to her, nothing he found except leaves; not for it was season of figs.
14 And answering he said to her: No more of thee to the age no one fruit may eat. And heard the disciples of him.
15 And they come to Jerusalem; and going into temple he began to cast out those selling and buying in the temple; and the tables the moneychangers, and the seats of those selling the doves he overturned;
16 and not suffered, that any one should carry an article through the temple.
17 And he taught, saying to them: Not is it written: That the house of me, a house of prayer shall be called for all the nations? you but have made it a den of robbers.
18 And heard the scribes and the highpriests, and they sought how him they might destroy; they feared for him, because all the crowd was amazed at the teaching of him.
19 And when evening it became, he went out of the city.
20 And in the morning passing along, they saw the figtree having been withered from roots;
21 And remembering the Peter, says to him: Rabbi, lo, the figtree, which thou didst curse, has been withered.
22 And answering the Jesus says to them: Have you faith of God.
23 Indeed for I say to you, that whoever may say to the mountain this: Be lifted up, and cast into the sea; and not should doubt in the heart of himself, but should believe that what he says comes to pass; it shall be to him whatever he may say.
24 Through this I say to you, all things whatever praying you desire, believe you that you receive, and it shall be to you.
25 And when you stand praying, forgive, if any thing you have against any one; that also the Father of you, that in the heavens, may forgive you the faults of you.
26 If but you not forgive, neither the Father of you, that in the heavens, will forgive the faults of you.
27 And they come again to Jerusalem. And in the temple walking of him, come to him the highpriests and the scribes and the elders,
28 and they say to him: By what authority these things doest thou? and who to thee the authority this gave, that these things thou mayest do?
29 The but Jesus answering said to them: I will ask you also I one word; and answer you to me, and I will tell to you, by what authority these things I do.
30 The dipping of John from heaven was or from men? answer you to me.
31 And they reasoned among themselves, saying: If we should say: From heaven, he will say: Why then not did you believe him?
32 But if we should say: From men; they feared the people; all for held the John, that really a prophet was.
33 And answering they say to the Jesus. Not we know. And the Jesus answering says to them: Neither I say to you, by what authority these things I do.
