Mark 11:19-33 Darby’s Translation

19  And when it was evening he went forth without the city.

The Lesson from the Withered Fig Tree

20  And passing by early in the morning they saw the fig-tree dried up from the roots. 21  And Peter, remembering [what Jesus had said], says to him, Rabbi, see, the fig-tree which thou cursedst is dried up. 22  And Jesus answering says to them, Have faith in God. 23  Verily I say to you, that whosoever shall say to this mountain, Be thou taken away and cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart, but believe that what he says takes place, whatever he shall say shall come to pass for him. 24  For this reason I say to you, All things whatsoever ye pray for and ask, believe that ye receive it, and it shall come to pass for you. 25  And when ye stand praying, forgive if ye have anything against any one, that your Father also who is in the heavens may forgive you your offences. 26  But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in the heavens forgive your offences.

Jesus' Authority Questioned

27  And they come again to Jerusalem. And as he walked about in the temple, the chief priests and the scribes and the elders come to him, 28  and they say to him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority, that thou shouldest do these things? 29  And Jesus answering said to them, I also will ask you one thing, and answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things: 30  The baptism of John, was it of heaven, or of men? answer me. 31  And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we should say, Of heaven, he will say, Why [then] have ye not believed him? 32  but should we say, Of men—they feared the people; for all held of John that he was truly a prophet. 33  And they answering say to Jesus, We do not know. And Jesus [answering] says to them, Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
