Mark 11:1-18 Darby’s Translation

The Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem

11 1  And when they draw near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sends two of his disciples, 2  and says to them, Go into the village which is over against you, and immediately on entering into it ye will find a colt tied, upon which no [child] of man has ever sat: loose it and lead it [here]. 3  And if any one say to you, Why do ye this? say, The Lord has need of it; and straightway he sends it hither. 4  And they departed, and found a colt bound to the door without at the crossway, and they loose him. 5  And some of those who stood there said to them, What are ye doing, loosing the colt? 6  And they said to them as Jesus had commanded. And they let them [do it]. 7  And they led the colt to Jesus, and cast their clothes upon it, and he sat on it; 8  and many strewed their clothes on the way, and others cut down branches from the trees [and went on strewing them on the way]. 9  And those going on before and those following cried out, Hosanna! blessed [be] he that comes in [the] Lord's name. 10  Blessed [be] the coming kingdom of our father David. Hosanna in the highest! 11  And he entered into Jerusalem and into the temple; and having looked round on all things, the hour being already late, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.

The Cursing of the Fig Tree

12  And on the morrow, when they were gone out of Bethany, he hungered. 13  And seeing from afar off a fig-tree which had leaves, he came, if perhaps he might find something on it. And having come up to it he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the time of figs. 14  And answering he said to it, Let no one eat fruit of thee any more for ever. And his disciples heard [it].

The Cleansing of the Temple

15  And they come to Jerusalem, and entering into the temple, he began to cast out those who sold and who bought in the temple, and he overthrew the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of the dove-sellers, 16  and suffered not that any one should carry any package through the temple. 17  And he taught saying to them, Is it not written, My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations? but ye have made it a den of robbers. 18  And the chief priests and the scribes heard [it], and they sought how they might destroy him; for they feared him, because all the crowd were astonished at his doctrine.
