Matthew 21


Mat 21:1 When they had approached Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples,
Mat 21:2 saying to them," Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied there and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to Me.
Mat 21:3 If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them, 'and immediately he will send them."
Mat 21:4 This took place to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
Mat 21:5 "Say to the daughter of Zion, 'Behold your King is coming to you, Gentle, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a beast of burden. '"
Mat 21:6 The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them,
Mat 21:7 and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their coats on them; and He sat on the coats.
Mat 21:8 Most of the crowd spread their coats in the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the road.
Mat 21:9 The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting," Hosanna to the Son of David; Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest!"
Mat 21:10 When He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying," Who is this?"
Mat 21:11 And the crowds were saying," This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth in Galilee."
Mat 21:12 And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.
Mat 21:13 And He *said to them," It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer'; but you are making it a robbers' den."
Mat 21:14 And the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
Mat 21:15 But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He had done, and the children who were shouting in the temple," Hosanna to the Son of David," they became indignant
Mat 21:16 and said to Him," Do You hear what these children are saying?" And Jesus *said to them," Yes; have you never read, 'Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies You have prepared praise for Yourself'?"
Mat 21:17 And He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and spent the night there.
Mat 21:18 Now in the morning, when He was returning to the city, He became hungry.
Mat 21:19 Seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves only; and He *said to it," No longer shall there ever be any fruit from you." And at once the fig tree withered.
Mat 21:20 Seeing this, the disciples were amazed and asked," How did the fig tree wither all at once?"
Mat 21:21 And Jesus answered and said to them," Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea, 'it will happen.
Mat 21:22 And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."
Mat 21:23 When He entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to Him while He was teaching, and said," By what authority are You doing these things, and who gave You this authority?"
Mat 21:24 Jesus said to them," I will also ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I will also tell you by what authority I do these things.
Mat 21:25 The baptism of John was from what source, from heaven or from men?" And they began reasoning among themselves, saying," If we say, 'From heaven, 'He will say to us, 'Then why did you not believe him? '
Mat 21:26 But if we say, 'From men, 'we fear the people; for they all regard John as a prophet."
Mat 21:27 And answering Jesus, they said," We do not know." He also said to them," Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.
Mat 21:28 "But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, 'Son, go work today in the vineyard. '
Mat 21:29 And he answered, 'I will not'; but afterward he regretted it and went.
Mat 21:30 The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, 'I will, sir'; but he did not go.
Mat 21:31 Which of the two did the will of his father?" They *said," The first." Jesus *said to them," Truly I say to you that the tax collectors and prostitutes will get into the kingdom of God before you.
Mat 21:32 For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him; but the tax collectors and prostitutes did believe him; and you, seeing this, did not even feel remorse afterward so as to believe him.
Mat 21:33 "Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard and put a wall around it and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey.
Mat 21:34 When the harvest time approached, he sent his slaves to the vine-growers to receive his produce.
Mat 21:35 The vine-growers took his slaves and beat one, and killed another, and stoned a third.
Mat 21:36 Again he sent another group of slaves larger than the first; and they did the same thing to them.
Mat 21:37 But afterward he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son. '
Mat 21:38 But when the vine-growers saw the son, they said among themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance. '
Mat 21:39 They took him, and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.
Mat 21:40 Therefore when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vine-growers?"
Mat 21:41 They *said to Him," He will bring those wretches to a wretched end, and will rent out the vineyard to other vine-growers who will pay him the proceeds at the proper seasons."
Mat 21:42 Jesus *said to them," Did you never read in the Scriptures, 'The stone which the builders rejected, This became the chief corner stone; This came about from the Lord, And it is marvelous in our eyes'?
Mat 21:43 Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people, producing the fruit of it.
Mat 21:44 And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust."
Mat 21:45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard His parables, they understood that He was speaking about them.
Mat 21:46 When they sought to seize Him, they feared the people, because they considered Him to be a prophet.

And presently the fig tree withered away. (kjv) Mat 21:19 Seeing a lone fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it except leaves only; and He said to it," No longer shall there ever be any fruit from you." And at once the fig tree withered. Mat 21:19 καὶ ἰδὼν συκῆν μίαν ἐπὶ τῆς ὁδοῦ ἦλθεν ἐπ᾽ αὐτήν, καὶ οὐδὲν εὖρεν ἐν αὐτῇ εἰ μὴ φύλλα μόνον, καὶ λέγει αὐτῇ, μηκέτι ἐκ σοῦ καρπὸς γένηται εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα. καὶ ἐξηράνθη παραχρῆμα ἡ συκῆ.
Mat 21:20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! (kjv) Mat 21:20 Seeing this, the disciples were amazed and asked," How did the fig tree wither all at once?" Mat 21:20 καὶ ἰδόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ ἐθαύμασαν λέγοντες, πῶς παραχρῆμα ἐξηράνθη ἡ συκῆ;

(kjv) Mat 21:21 And Jesus answered and said to them," Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, 'Be taken up and cast into the sea, 'it will happen. Mat 21:21 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐὰν ἔχητε πίστιν καὶ μὴ διακριθῆτε, οὐ μόνον τὸ τῆς συκῆς ποιήσετε, ἀλλὰ κἂν τῶ ὄρει τούτῳ εἴπητε, ἄρθητι καὶ βλήθητι εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν, γενήσεται·
Mat 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. (kjv) Mat 21:22 And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." Mat 21:22 καὶ πάντα ὅσα ἂν αἰτήσητε ἐν τῇ προσευχῇ πιστεύοντες λήμψεσθε.
Mat 21:23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came unto him as he was teaching, and said, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority? (kjv) Mat 21:23 When He entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to Him while He was teaching, and said," By what authority are You doing these things, and who gave You this authority?" Mat 21:23 καὶ ἐλθόντος αὐτοῦ εἰς τὸ ἱερὸν προσῆλθον αὐτῶ διδάσκοντι οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς καὶ οἱ πρεσβύτεροι τοῦ λαοῦ λέγοντες, ἐν ποίᾳ ἐξουσίᾳ ταῦτα ποιεῖς; καὶ τίς σοι ἔδωκεν τὴν ἐξουσίαν ταύτην;
Mat 21:24 And Jesus answered and said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, which if ye tell me, I in like wise will tell you by what authority I do these things. (kjv) Mat 21:24 Jesus said to them," I will also ask you one thing, which if you tell Me, I will also tell you by what authority I do these things. Mat 21:24 ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτοῖς, ἐρωτήσω ὑμᾶς κἀγὼ λόγον ἕνα, ὃν ἐὰν εἴπητέ μοι κἀγὼ ὑμῖν ἐρῶ ἐν ποίᾳ ἐξουσίᾳ ταῦτα ποιῶ·
Mat 21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him? (kjv) Mat 21:25 The baptism of John was from what source, from heaven or from men?" And they began reasoning among themselves, saying," If we say, 'From heaven, 'He will say to us, 'Then why did you not believe him? ' Mat 21:25 τὸ βάπτισμα τὸ ἰωάννου πόθεν ἦν; ἐξ οὐρανοῦ ἢ ἐξ ἀνθρώπων; οἱ δὲ διελογίζοντο ἐν ἑαυτοῖς λέγοντες, ἐὰν εἴπωμεν, ἐξ οὐρανοῦ, ἐρεῖ ἡμῖν, διὰ τί οὗν οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε αὐτῶ;
Mat 21:26 But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet. (kjv) Mat 21:26 But if we say, 'From men, 'we fear the people; for they all regard John as a prophet." Mat 21:26 ἐὰν δὲ εἴπωμεν, ἐξ ἀνθρώπων, φοβούμεθα τὸν ὄχλον, πάντες γὰρ ὡς προφήτην ἔχουσιν τὸν ἰωάννην.
Mat 21:27 And they answered Jesus, and said, We cannot tell. And he said unto them, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. (kjv) Mat 21:27 And answering Jesus, they said," We do not know." He also said to them," Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things. Mat 21:27 καὶ ἀποκριθέντες τῶ ἰησοῦ εἶπαν, οὐκ οἴδαμεν. ἔφη αὐτοῖς καὶ αὐτός, οὐδὲ ἐγὼ λέγω ὑμῖν ἐν ποίᾳ ἐξουσίᾳ ταῦτα ποιῶ.
Mat 21:28 But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. (kjv) Mat 21:28 "But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, 'Son, go work today in the vineyard. ' Mat 21:28 τί δὲ ὑμῖν δοκεῖ; ἄνθρωπος εἶχεν τέκνα δύο. καὶ προσελθὼν τῶ πρώτῳ εἶπεν, τέκνον, ὕπαγε σήμερον ἐργάζου ἐν τῶ ἀμπελῶνι.
Mat 21:29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. (kjv) Mat 21:29 And he answered, 'I will not'; but afterward he regretted it and went. Mat 21:29 ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν, οὐ θέλω, ὕστερον δὲ μεταμεληθεὶς ἀπῆλθεν.
Mat 21:30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. (kjv) Mat 21:30 The man came to the second and said the same thing; and he answered, 'I will, sir'; but he did not go. Mat 21:30 προσελθὼν δὲ τῶ ἑτέρῳ εἶπεν ὡσαύτως. ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν, ἐγώ, κύριε· καὶ οὐκ ἀπῆλθεν.
Mat 21:31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. (kjv) Mat 21:31 Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said," The first." Jesus said to them," Truly I say to you that the tax collectors and prostitutes will get into the kingdom of God before you. Mat 21:31 τίς ἐκ τῶν δύο ἐποίησεν τὸ θέλημα τοῦ πατρός; λέγουσιν, ὁ πρῶτος. λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ ἰησοῦς, ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι οἱ τελῶναι καὶ αἱ πόρναι προάγουσιν ὑμᾶς εἰς τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ.
Mat 21 32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him. (kjv) Mat 21:32 For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him; but the tax collectors and prostitutes did believe him; and you, seeing this, did not even feel remorse afterward so as to believe him. Mat 21:32 ἦλθεν γὰρ ἰωάννης πρὸς ὑμᾶς ἐν ὁδῶ δικαιοσύνης, καὶ οὐκ ἐπιστεύσατε αὐτῶ· οἱ δὲ τελῶναι καὶ αἱ πόρναι ἐπίστευσαν αὐτῶ· ὑμεῖς δὲ ἰδόντες οὐδὲ μετεμελήθητε ὕστερον τοῦ πιστεῦσαι αὐτῶ.
Mat 21 33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country (kjv) Mat 21:33 "Listen to another parable. There was a landowner who planted a vineyard and put a wall around it and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and rented it out to vine-growers and went on a journey. Mat 21:33 ἄλλην παραβολὴν ἀκούσατε. ἄνθρωπος ἦν οἰκοδεσπότης ὅστις ἐφύτευσεν ἀμπελῶνα καὶ φραγμὸν αὐτῶ περιέθηκεν καὶ ὤρυξεν ἐν αὐτῶ ληνὸν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν πύργον, καὶ ἐξέδετο αὐτὸν γεωργοῖς, καὶ ἀπεδήμησεν.
Mat 21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. (kjv) Mat 21:34 When the harvest time approached, he sent his slaves to the vine-growers to receive his produce. Mat 21:34 ὅτε δὲ ἤγγισεν ὁ καιρὸς τῶν καρπῶν, ἀπέστειλεν τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ πρὸς τοὺς γεωργοὺς λαβεῖν τοὺς καρποὺς αὐτοῦ.
Mat 21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. (kjv) Mat 21:35 The vine-growers took his slaves and beat one, and killed another, and stoned a third. Mat 21:35 καὶ λαβόντες οἱ γεωργοὶ τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ ὃν μὲν ἔδειραν, ὃν δὲ ἀπέκτειναν, ὃν δὲ ἐλιθοβόλησαν.
Mat 21:36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise. (kjv) Mat 21:36 Again he sent another group of slaves larger than the first; and they did the same thing to them. Mat 21:36 πάλιν ἀπέστειλεν ἄλλους δούλους πλείονας τῶν πρώτων, καὶ ἐποίησαν αὐτοῖς ὡσαύτως.
Mat 21:37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son. (kjv) Mat 21:37 But afterward he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son. ' Mat 21:37 ὕστερον δὲ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ λέγων, ἐντραπήσονται τὸν υἱόν μου.
Mat 21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. (kjv) Mat 21:38 But when the vine-growers saw the son, they said among themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and seize his inheritance. ' Mat 21:38 οἱ δὲ γεωργοὶ ἰδόντες τὸν υἱὸν εἶπον ἐν ἑαυτοῖς, οὖτός ἐστιν ὁ κληρονόμος· δεῦτε ἀποκτείνωμεν αὐτὸν καὶ σχῶμεν τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ.
Mat 21:39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him. (kjv) Mat 21:39 They took him, and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. Mat 21:39 καὶ λαβόντες αὐτὸν ἐξέβαλον ἔξω τοῦ ἀμπελῶνος καὶ ἀπέκτειναν.
Mat 21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen? (kjv) Mat 21:40 Therefore when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vine-growers?" Mat 21:40 ὅταν οὗν ἔλθῃ ὁ κύριος τοῦ ἀμπελῶνος, τί ποιήσει τοῖς γεωργοῖς ἐκείνοις;
Mat 21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons. (kjv) Mat 21:41 They said to Him," He will bring those wretches to a wretched end, and will rent out the vineyard to other vine-growers who will pay him the proceeds at the proper seasons." Mat 21:41 λέγουσιν αὐτῶ, κακοὺς κακῶς ἀπολέσει αὐτούς, καὶ τὸν ἀμπελῶνα ἐκδώσεται ἄλλοις γεωργοῖς, οἵτινες ἀποδώσουσιν αὐτῶ τοὺς καρποὺς ἐν τοῖς καιροῖς αὐτῶν.
