Jesus Curses the Fig Tree

12 (A)On the following day, when they came from Bethany, (B)he was hungry. 13 (C)And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for (D)it was not the season for figs. 14 And he said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it.

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

15 (E)And they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of (F)the money-changers and the seats of those who sold (G)pigeons. 16 And he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. 17 And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, (H)‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But (I)you have made it a den of robbers.” 18 And the chief priests and the scribes heard it and (J)were seeking a way to destroy him, for they feared him, because (K)all the crowd was astonished at his teaching.
