Mateus 21

1 And 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:

2 You 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.

3 And 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.

4 This and all has been done, that might be fulfilled the word spoken through the prophets, saying:

5 Say 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.

6 Having gone and the disciples, and having done as commanded to them the Jesus,

7 they led the ass and the foal, and they placed upon them the mantles of them; and they caused to sit on (one) of them.

8 The and greater crowd spread of themselves the mantles in the way; others and cut off branches from the trees, and scattered in the way.

9 The 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.

10 And having entered of them into Jerusalem, was moved all the city, saying: Who is this?

11 The and crowds said: This is Jesus the prophet, that from Nazareth of the Galilee.

12 And 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;

13 and 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.

14 And came to him blind and lame in the temple, and he healed them.

15 Having 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,

16 and 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?

17 And having left them, he went out of the city into Bethany, and he lodged there

18 Early but, returning into the city, he was hungry.

19 And 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.

20 And seeing the disciples wondered, saying: How soon withered the fig–tree?

21 Answering 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.

22 And all, whatever you shall ask in the prayer, believing you shall receive.

23 And 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?

24 Answering 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;

25 the 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?

26 if but we should say from men; we fear the crowd; all for hold the John as a prophet.

27 And 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.

28 What 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.

29 He and answering said: Not I will; afterward but having changed his mind, he went.

30 And coming to the other, he said just the same. He and answering said: I lord, and not went.

31 Who 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.

32 Came 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.

33 Another 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.

34 When and drew near the time of the fruits, he sent the slaves of him, to the husbandmen, to receive the fruits of it.

35 And having taken the husbandmen the slaves of him, him indeed they flayed, him and they killed, him and they pelted with stones.

36 Again he sent other slaves, greater the first; and they did to them in like manner.

37 Afterwards and he sent to them the son of him, saying: They will regard the son of me.

38 The but husbandmen, seeing the son, said among themselves: This is the heir; come, we may kill him, and may retain the inheritance of him.

39 And having taken him, they cast out of the vineyard, and killed.

40 When therefore may come the lord of the vineyard, what will he do to the husbandmen to those?

41 They 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.

42 He 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?

43 On 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.

44 And he falling on the stone this, shall be broken; on whom but it shall fall, it will crush to pieces him.

45 And having heard the high–priests and the Pharisees the parables of him, knew, that about them he says.

46 And seeking him to seize, they feared the crowds; since as a prophet him they held.
