Matthew 21

1And when they were nigh to Jerusalem, and had come to Bethphage by the mountain of the olive-trees, then the Jesus sent away two disciples, saying to them: 2You may go to the village the over against you, and immediately you will find an ass having been bound, and a foal with her; having loosed bring to me. 3And if any (one) to you should say any (thing), you shall say: That the lord of them need has; immediately and he will need them. 4This and all has been done, that might be fulfilled the word spoken through the prophets, saying: 5Say to the daughter of Zion: Lo, the king of thee comes to thee meek, and having been set on an ass, even a foal a son of a beast of burden. 6Having gone and the disciples, and having done as commanded to them the Jesus, 7they led the ass and the foal, and they placed upon them the mantles of them; and they caused to sit on (one) of them. 8The and greater crowd spread of themselves the mantles in the way; others and cut off branches from the trees, and scattered in the way. 9The and crowds those going before and those following did cry, saying: Hosanna to the son of David; worthy of blessing he coming in name of Lord; hosanna in the highest. 10And having entered of them into Jerusalem, was moved all the city, saying: Who is this? 11The and crowds said: This is Jesus the prophet, that from Nazareth of the Galilee. 12And entered the Jesus into the temple of the God, and cast out all the selling and buying in the temple, and the tables of the money changers overturned, and the seats of the selling the doves; 13and he says to them: It is written The house of me, a house of prayer shall be called; you but it have made a den of robbers. 14And came to him blind and lame in the temple, and he healed them. 15Having seen but the high-priests and the scribes the wonders, which he did, and the boys crying in the temple, and saying: Hosanna to the son of David; they were angry, 16and said to him: Hearest thou what these are saying? The and Jesus says them: Yes; Never have you read: That out of mouth of babes and of suckling (ones) thou has perfected praise? 17And having left them, he went out of the city into Bethany, and he lodged there 18Early but, returning into the city, he was hungry. 19And seeing a fig-tree one by the way, he came to her, and nothing found in her except leaves alone; and he says to her: No more by thee fruit may be produced to the age. And withered immediately the fig-tree. 20And seeing the disciples wondered, saying: How soon withered the fig-tree? 21Answering and the Jesus said to them: Indeed I say to you, if you may have faith, and not should doubt, not only the (miracle) of the fig-tree you shall do, but also if to the mountain this you should say: Be thou lifted up, and be cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22And all, whatever you shall ask in the prayer, believing you shall receive. 23And having come to him into the temple, came to him teaching the high-priests and the elders of the people, saying: By what authority these (things) doest thou? and who to thee gave the authority this? 24Answering and the Jesus said to them: I will ask you also I word one; which if you may say to me, also I to you will tell, by what authority these (things) I do; 25the dipping of John whence was? from heaven, or from men? They and reasoned among themselves, saying: If we should say, from heaven; he will say to us: Why then not did you believe to him? 26if but we should say from men; we fear the crowd; all for hold the John as a prophet. 27And they answering to the Jesus said: Not we know. Said to them and he: Neither I say to you by what authority these (things) I do. 28What but to you seems right? A man had children two; and coming to the first, he said: Son, go, to-day work in the vineyard of me. 29He and answering said: Not I will; afterward but having changed his mind, he went. 30And coming to the other, he said just the same. He and answering said: I lord, and not went. 31Who of the two did the will of the father? They say to him: The first. Says to them the Jesus: Indeed I say to you, that the tax-gatherers and the harlots go before you in the kingdom of the God. 32Came for to you John in a way of righteousness, and not you believed him; the but tax-gatherers and the harlots believed him; you and seeing not repented afterwards, of the to believe him. 33Another parable hear you; a man was a householder, who planted a vineyard, and a hedge to it placed around, and digged in it a wine-press, and built a tower; and let out it to husbandmen, and went abroad. 34When and drew near the time of the fruits, he sent the slaves of him, to the husbandmen, to receive the fruits of it. 35And having taken the husbandmen the slaves of him, him indeed they flayed, him and they killed, him and they pelted with stones. 36Again he sent other slaves, greater the first; and they did to them in like manner. 37Afterwards and he sent to them the son of him, saying: They will regard the son of me. 38The but husbandmen, seeing the son, said among themselves: This is the heir; come, we may kill him, and may retain the inheritance of him. 39And having taken him, they cast out of the vineyard, and killed. 40When therefore may come the lord of the vineyard, what will he do to the husbandmen to those? 41They say to him: Wretches wretchedly destroy them; and the vineyard will let out to other husbandmen, who will render to him the fruits in the seasons of them. 42He says to them the Jesus: Never have you read in the writings: A stone which rejected they building, the same was made into a head of a corner; from Lord was this, and it is wonderful in eyes of us? 43On account of this I say to you, that shall be taken from you the kingdom of the God, and shall be given to a nation making the fruits of her. 44And he falling on the stone this, shall be broken; on whom but it shall fall, it will crush to pieces him. 45And having heard the high-priests and the Pharisees the parables of him, knew, that about them he says. 46And seeking him to seize, they feared the crowds; since as a prophet him they held.
