Mark 11 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

11 And when Jesus came nigh to Jerusalem and to Bethany, to the mount of Olives, he sendeth two of his disciples,[a],

and saith to them, Go ye into the castle that is against you; and at once as ye enter there ye shall find a colt tied, on which no man hath sat yet[b]; untie ye, and bring him.

And if any man say any thing to you, What do ye? say ye, that he is needful to the Lord, and at once he shall let him go hither [and anon he shall leave him hither].

And they went forth, and found a colt tied before the gate withoutforth, in the meeting of two ways; and they untied him.

And some of them that stood there said to them, What do ye, untying the colt?

And they said to them, as Jesus commanded them; and they left it to them [and they let go to them].

And they brought the colt to Jesus, and they laid on him their clothes, and Jesus sat on him[c].

And many strewed their clothes in the way, and other men cutted branches off trees[d], and strewed in the way.

And they that went before, and that followed, cried, and said [saying], Hosanna, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord;

10 blessed be the kingdom of our father David that is to come; Hosanna in highest things.[e]

11 And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and when he had seen all things about, when it was even[f], he went out into Bethany, with the twelve.

12 And another day, when he went out of Bethany [when he went out from Bethany], he hungered.

13 And when he had seen a fig tree afar having leaves, he came, if happily he should find any thing thereon; and when he came to it, he found nothing, except leaves; for it was not time of figs.

14 And Jesus answered and said to it, Now never eat any man fruit of thee more [Now no more without end any man eat fruit of thee]. And his disciples heard;

15 and they came to Jerusalem. And when he was entered into the temple, he began to cast out sellers and buyers in the temple[g]; and he turned upside-down the boards of changers, and the chairs of men that sold culvers;

16 and he suffered not, that any man should bear a vessel through the temple.

17 And he taught them, and said, Whether it is not written, That mine house shall be called the house of praying to all folks[h]? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

18 And when this thing was heard, the princes of priests and [the] scribes sought how they should destroy him [sought how they should lose him]; for they dreaded him, for all the people wondered on his teaching.

19 And when evening was come, he went out of the city.

20 And as they passed forth early [And when they passed early], they saw the fig tree made dry from the roots.

21 And Peter bethought him(self), and said to him, Master, lo! the fig tree, whom thou cursedest, is dried up. [And Peter having mind, said to him, Master, lo! the fig tree, which thou cursedest, hath dried up.]

22 And Jesus answered and said to them, Have ye the faith of God;

23 truly I say to you, that whoever saith to this hill, Be thou taken, and [be thou] cast into the sea; and doubt not in his heart, but believeth, that whatever he say [but believeth, for whatever thing he saith], shall be done, it shall be done to him.

24 Therefore I say to you, all things whatever things ye praying shall ask, believe ye that ye shall take, and they shall come to you.

25 And when ye shall stand to pray, forgive ye, if ye have any thing against any man, that [also] your Father that is in heavens, forgive to you your sins.

26 And if ye forgive not, neither your Father that is in heavens, shall forgive to you your sins.[i]

27 And again they came to Jerusalem. And when he walked in the temple, the highest priests, and scribes, and the elder men came to him. [And again they come to Jerusalem. And when he walked into the temple, the highest priests, and scribes, and elder men come nigh to him,]

28 and said to him [and say to him], In what power doest thou these things? or who gave to thee this power, that thou do these things [or who gave to thee this power, that to do these things]?

29 Jesus answered and said to them, And I shall ask [of] you one word, and answer ye to me, and I shall say to you in what power I do these things.

30 Whether was the baptism of John of heaven, or of men? answer ye to me.

31 And they thought within themselves, saying, If we [shall] say of heaven, he shall say to us, Why then believe ye not to him [Why therefore believed ye not to him];

32 if we [shall] say of men, we dread the people; for all men had John, that he was verily a prophet.

33 And they answered, and said to Jesus, We know not. And Jesus answered, and said to them [And Jesus answering saith to them], Neither I say to you, in what power I do these things.

Mark 11 New International Version (NIV)

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

11 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples, saying to them, “Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.’”

They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it, some people standing there asked, “What are you doing, untying that colt?” They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go. When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it. Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields. Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted,

“Hosanna![a]

“Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!”[b]

10 “Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!”

“Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

11 Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple courts. He looked around at everything, but since it was already late, he went out to Bethany with the Twelve.

Jesus Curses a Fig Tree and Clears the Temple Courts

12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. 13 Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. 14 Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it.

15 On reaching Jerusalem, Jesus entered the temple courts and began driving out those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves, 16 and would not allow anyone to carry merchandise through the temple courts. 17 And as he taught them, he said, “Is it not written: ‘My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations’[c]? But you have made it ‘a den of robbers.’[d]

18 The chief priests and the teachers of the law heard this and began looking for a way to kill him, for they feared him, because the whole crowd was amazed at his teaching.

19 When evening came, Jesus and his disciples[e] went out of the city.

20 In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. 21 Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”

22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly[f] I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” [26] [g]

The Authority of Jesus Questioned

27 They arrived again in Jerusalem, and while Jesus was walking in the temple courts, the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders came to him. 28 “By what authority are you doing these things?” they asked. “And who gave you authority to do this?”

29 Jesus replied, “I will ask you one question. Answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I am doing these things. 30 John’s baptism—was it from heaven, or of human origin? Tell me!”

31 They discussed it among themselves and said, “If we say, ‘From heaven,’ he will ask, ‘Then why didn’t you believe him?’ 32 But if we say, ‘Of human origin’ …” (They feared the people, for everyone held that John really was a prophet.)

33 So they answered Jesus, “We don’t know.”

Jesus said, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.”
