Temple <​of God, & cast out all them that sold & bought in the Temple,​> & overthrew the tables of me <​the​> money changers, & the seats of them that sold doves, & said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called <​6/​> the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. <​6/​> & <​And​> the blind, & the lame, came to him in the Temple; & he healed them. & <​And​> when the Chief Priests & Scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, & the children of the Kingdom crying in the temple, & saying, Hozannah to the son of David; they were sore displeased, & said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? & <​And​> Jesus said unto them, Yea; Have ye never read the Scriptures which saith, Out of the mouths of babe’s & suckling’s, O <​7/​> Lord, thou hast perfected praise? <​7/​> & <​And​> he left them, & went out of the City <​7/​> into Bethany, & he lodged there. <​7/​> Now in the morning, as he returned into the City, he hungered; & when he saw a Figtree in the way, he came to it, & found nothing thereon <​there was not any fruit on it,​> but leaves only; & he said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward forever; & presently the Figtree whithered away. & <​And​> when the Desiples saw this, they marveled & said, How soon is the Figtree whithered away! Jesus answered & said unto them, Verily I say unto you, if ye have faith, & doubt not, ye shall not only do this to the Figtree, but also, if ye shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, & be thou cast into the Sea; it shall be done. & <​And​> all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, in faith believeing, ye <​8/​> shall receive. <​8/​> And When he was come into the Temple, the chief priests Priests & the Elders of the People, came unto him as he was teaching & said, By what authority dost thou these things? & <​And​> who gave thee this authority? & <​And​> Jesus answered & said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, Which, if ye <​tell​> me, I likewise will tell you by what authority I do these things. 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? But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the People; for all People hold John as a Prophet. & <​And​> they answered Jesus & said, We cannot tell. <​9/​> & <​And​> he said, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. <​9​> But what think ye?

Temple of God, & cast out all them that sold & bought in the Temple, & overthrew the tables of the money changers, & the seats of them that sold doves, & said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called 6/ the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. 6/ & And the blind, & the lame, came to him in the Temple; & he healed them. & And when the Chief Priests & Scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, & the children of the Kingdom crying in the temple, & saying, Hozannah to the son of David; they were sore displeased, & said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus said unto them, Yea; Have ye never read the Scriptures which saith, Out of the mouths of babe’s & suckling’s, O Lord, thou hast perfected praise? And he left them, & went out of the City 7/ into Bethany, & he lodged there. 7/ Now in the morning, as he returned into the City, he hungered; & when he saw a Figtree in the way, he came to it, & there was not any fruit on it, but leaves only; & he said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward forever; & presently the Figtree whithered away. And when the Desiples saw this, they marveled & said, How soon is the Figtree whithered away! Jesus answered & said unto them, Verily I say unto you, if ye have faith, & doubt not, ye shall not only do this to the Figtree, but also, if ye shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed, & be thou cast into the Sea; it shall be done. & And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, in faith believeing, ye 8/ shall receive. 8/ And When he was come into the Temple, the chief Priests & the Elders of the People, came unto him as he was teaching & said, By what authority dost thou these things? And who gave thee this authority? & And Jesus answered & said unto them, I also will ask you one thing, Which, if ye tell me, I likewise will tell you by what authority I do these things. 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? But if we shall say, Of men; we fear the People; for all People hold John as a Prophet. And they answered Jesus & said, We cannot tell. 9/ And he said, Neither tell I you by what authority I do these things. 9 But what think ye? A man had two Sons; & he came to the first, saying, Son, go work today in my vineyard. He answered & said, I will not; but afterwards he repented & went. And he came to the Second, & said likewise.
