The Holy Bible, King James Version Revised

The Gospel According to
St. Mark


And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,
    2 And saith unto them, Go ye into the village which is before 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 hither.
    3 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye, The Lord hath need of him, and straightway he will send him hither again .
    4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in the way; and they loose him.
    5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?
    6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.
    7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.
    8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches in the fields, and strewed them in the way.
    9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried out, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
    10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David that shall come: Hosanna in the highest.
    11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and cometh into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and since the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
    12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
    13 And 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 season of figs was not yet.
    14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, Let no man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
    15 And 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;
    16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any goods through the temple.
    17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called the house of prayer for all nations ? but ye have made it a den of thieves.
    18 And the chief priests and scribes heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his teaching.
    19 And when even was come, they went out of the city.
    20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
    21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Rabbi, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
    22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
    23 For 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; it shall have be done for him.
    24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye ask, when ye pray, believe that ye have received them, and they shall be given unto you.
    25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have any thing against another:
    26 That your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
    27 And 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,
    28 And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?
    29 And 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.
    30 The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? answer me.
    31 And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did ye not believe him?
    32 But shall we say, Of men? They feared the people: for all men counted John, that he was a prophet indeed.
    33 And 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.
