Mark 11

And when they came near to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, He sendeth forth two of His disciples,

2 And saith unto them, “Go your way into the village opposite you; and as soon as you have entered into it, you shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.

3 And if any man says unto you, ‘Why do you this?’ Say you that the Lord (Adonai) hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.”

4 And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door outside in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

5 And certain of them that stood there said unto them, “What do you, loosing the colt?”

6 And they said unto them even as YHWH had commanded; and they let them go.

7 And they brought the colt to YHWH, and cast their garments on Him; and He sat upon him.

8 And many spread their garments on the road; and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.

9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, “Hosanna! ‘Blessed is He that cometh in the name of יהוה!’ – Psa.118:26, Mat.21:9

10 Blessed be the kingdom of our forefather Dawid, that cometh in the name of יהוה (YHWH); Hosanna in the highest!”

11 And YHWH entered into Jerusalem (Yerushalayim), 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.

12 And on the next day, when they had 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 time of figs was not yet.

14 And YHWH answered and said unto it, “No man eat fruit of you hereafter for ever.” And His disciples heard it.

15 And they come to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim); and YHWH 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 allow that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

17 And He taught, saying unto them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? But you have made it a den of thieves. – Isa.56:7; Jer.7:11, Mat.21:13

18 And the scribes and chief priests (kohanim) heard it, and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because all the people was astonished at His doctrine (teaching).

19 And when even had come, He 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 A72Peter (Kefa) calling to remembrance saith unto Him, “Teacher (Rabbi), behold, the fig tree which You cursedst has withered away.”

22 And YHWH answering saith unto them, “Have faith in God (Elohim).

23 For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, ‘Be you removed, and be you 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.

24 Therefore I say unto you, what things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.

25 And when you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any; that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

26 But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”

27 And they come again to Jerusalem (Yerushalayim); and as He was walking in the temple, there come to Him the chief priests (kohanim), and the scribes, and the elders,

28 And say unto Him, “By what authority doest You these things? And who gave you this authority to do these things?”

29 And YHWH 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 (Yochanan), 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 you not believe Him?’

32 But if we shall say, ‘Of men;’” they feared the people; for all men counted John (Yochanan), that he was a prophet indeed.

33 And they answered and said unto YHWH, “We cannot tell.” And YHWH answering saith unto them, “Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.”
