Mark Chapter 11

Mark 11:1 When they came close to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, He sent out two of His disciples,

Mark 11:2 and said to them, go your way into the village opposite you: and as soon as you be entered into it, you will find a colt tied, which not even one man sat; untie him, and bring him.

Mark 11:3 and if any man say to you, what is this you are doing? Say that the Lord has need of him; and immediately he will send him back here.

Mark 11:4 So they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door outside in a place where two ways met; and they untied him.

Mark 11:5 Then certain one stood there saying to them, what are you doing, untying the colt?

Mark 11:6 They said to them just as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.

Mark 11:7 So they brought the colt to Jesus, and put their coats on it; and He sat on them.

Mark 11:8 Many spread their coats on the road: and others cut down branches off the trees, and scattered them on the road.

Mark 11:9 Then they that went ahead, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord!

Mark 11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David that comes in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest!

Mark 11:11 So Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when He had looked around on all things, and now the evening had come, He went out to Bethany with the twelve.

Mark 11:12 On the next day, when they had come from Bethany, He was hungry:

Mark 11:13 seeing in the distance a fig tree having leaves, He came, if perhaps He might find anything on it: but when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; for it was not the season of figs.

Mark 11:14 Then Jesus answered and said to it, no one will eat fruit from you, from now on and into the new covenant age. And His disciples heard it.

Mark 11:15 They came to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast them out that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

Mark 11:16 and would not permit that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

Mark 11:17 Then He taught, saying to them, is it not written, My house will be called, the house of prayer for all nations? But you have made it a den of thieves.

Mark 11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and they were striving to find a way to destroy Him: but they feared Him, because all the multitude were astonished at His teaching.

Mark 11:19 When evening had come, He went out of the city.

Mark 11:20 In the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.

Mark 11:21 Then Peter remembering said to Him, Master, behold, the fig tree which You cursed has withered away.

Mark 11:22 Jesus answered and said to them, have faith in God.

Mark 11:23 For truthfully I say to you, that whoever will say to this mountain, you be removed, and you be cast into the sea; and will not doubt in his heart, but will believe that those things which he says will come to pass; he will have whatever he says.

Mark 11:24 therefore I say to you, whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Mark 11:25 When you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against any: that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Mark 11:26 But if you do not forgive, neither will Your Father who is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Mark 11:27 They come again to Jerusalem: and as He was walking in the temple, there came to Him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,

Mark 11:28 and said to Him, by what authority are You doing these things? And who gave You this authority to do these things?

Mark 11:29 Then Jesus answered and said to them, I will also ask of you one question, and answer Me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.

Mark 11:30 The immersion of John, was it from heaven, or of men? Answer Me.

Mark 11:31 So they reasoned with themselves, saying, if we will say, from heaven; He will say, why then did you not believe him?

Mark 11:32 But if we will say, of men; they feared the people: for all men considered John, that he was a prophet indeed.

Mark 11:33 Then they answered and said to Jesus, we cannot tell. And Jesus answered and said to them, neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.
