Now on the next day, in the morning, when they had come forth from Bethany, returning to the city, He was hungry. And seeing a single fig tree afar off by the road, having leaves, He went to it, if perhaps He might find something on it. But when He came to it, He found nothing but leaves; for it was not the season of figs. And He answered and said to it, "Let no more fruit come from thee, let no one eat fruit of thee henceforth forever." And His disciples heard Him. And immediately the fig tree withered away.
And they came to Jerusalem; and Jesus, entering into the temple of God, began to cast out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and He overthrew the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who sold doves; and would not allow that any one should carry a vessel through the temple. And He taught and said to them, "It is written, is it not, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations'? But ye have made it a den of robbers." And the chief priests and the scribes heard this and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because all the multitude were astonished at His teaching. And he was teaching daily in the temple.
