Matthew 21


21:1 And when they drew nigh to Jerusalem, and had come to
 Bethphage, to the mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two
 disciples,
21:2 Saying to them, Go into the village over against you, and
 immediately ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her,
 loose [them], and bring [them] to me.
21:3 And if any [man] shall say aught to you, ye shall say, The
 Lord hath need of them; and immediately he will send them.
21:4 All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was
 spoken by the prophet, saying,
21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh to
 thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an
 ass.
21:6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,
21:7 And brought the ass and the colt, and put on them their
 clothes, and they set [him] thereon.
21:8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the
 way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strewed
 [them] in the way.
21:9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed,
 cried, saying, Hosanna to the son of David: blessed [is] he
 that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
21:10 And when he had come into Jerusalem, all the city was
 moved, saying, Who is this?
21:11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus the prophet of
 Nazareth of Galilee.
21:12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all
 them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the
 tables of the money-changers, and the seats of them that sold
 doves.
21:13 And said to them, It is written, My house shall be called
 the house of prayer, but ye have made it a den of thieves.
21:14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and
 he healed them.
21:15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful
 things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and
 saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were greatly
 displeased,
21:16 And said to him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus
 saith to them, Yes: have ye never read, Out of the mouth of
 babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?
21:17 And he left them, and went out of the city into Bethany,
 and he lodged there.
21:18 Now in the morning as he was returning into the city, he
 was hungry.
21:19 And when he saw a fig-tree in the way, he came to it, and
 found nothing on it, but leaves only, and said to it, Let no
 fruit grow on thee henceforth for ever. And immediately the
 fig-tree withered.
21:20 And when the disciples saw [it], they marveled, saying,
 How soon is the fig-tree withered!
21:21 Jesus answered and said to them, Verily I say to you, If
 ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this [which
 is done] to the fig-tree, but also, if ye shall say to this
 mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it
 shall be done.
21:22 And all things whatever ye shall ask in prayer, believing,
 ye shall receive.
21:23 And when he had come into the temple, the chief priests
 and the elders of the people came to him as he was teaching,
 and said, By what authority doest thou these things; and who
 gave thee this authority?
21:24 And Jesus answered and said to them, I also will ask you
 one thing, which if ye tell me, I also will tell you by what
 authority I do these things.
21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or from
 men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, if we shall
 say, From heaven; he will say to us, Why then did ye not
 believe him?
21:26 But if we shall say, From men; we fear the people: for all
 hold John as a prophet.
21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he
 said to them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do
 these things.
21:28 But what think ye? A [certain] man had two sons; and he
 came to the first, and said, Son, go, work to-day in my
 vineyard.
21:29 He answered and said, I will not; but afterward he
 repented, and went.
21:30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he
 answered and said, I [go], sir: and went not.
21:31 Which of the two did the will of [his] father? They say to
 him, The first. Jesus saith to them, Verily I say to you, that
 the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before
 you.
21:32 For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and ye
 believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed
 him: and ye, when ye had seen [it], repented not afterward,
 that ye might believe him.
21:33 Hear another parable; There was a certain householder, who
 planted a vineyard, and hedged it around, and digged a
 wine-press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to
 husbandmen, and went into a remote country:
21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his
 servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits
 of it.
21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and
 killed another, and stoned another.
21:36 Again he sent other servants more than the first: and they
 did to them in like manner.
21:37 But last of all he sent to them his son, saying, They will
 reverence my son.
21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among
 themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us
 seize on his inheritance.
21:39 And they caught him, and cast [him] out of the vineyard,
 and slew [him].
21:40 When therefore the Lord of the vineyard cometh, what will
 he do to those husbandmen?
21:41 They say to him, He will miserably destroy those wicked
 men, and will let out [his] vineyard to other husbandmen, who
 will render him the fruits in their seasons.
21:42 Jesus saith to them, Did ye never read in the scriptures,
 The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the
 head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is
 marvelous in our eyes?
21:43 Therefore I say to you, The kingdom of God shall be taken
 from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits of
 it.
21:44 And whoever shall fall on this stone, shall be broken: but
 on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
21:45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his
 parables, they perceived that he spoke of them.
21:46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the
 multitude, because they took him for a prophet.
