Mark 11 : 12 - 24

Chapter 11

12Now the next day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry.
13And seeing from afar a fig tree having leaves, He went to see if perhaps He would find something on it. When He came to it, He found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs.
14In response Jesus said to it, "Let no one eat fruit from you ever again." And His disciples heard it.
15So they came to Jerusalem. Then Jesus went into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
16And He would not allow anyone to carry wares through the temple.
17Then He taught, saying to them, "Is it not written, "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations'? But you have made it a "den of thieves."'
18And the scribes and chief priests heard it and sought how they might destroy Him; for they feared Him, because all the people were astonished at His teaching.
19When evening had come, He went out of the city.
20Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
21And Peter, remembering, said to Him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away."
22So Jesus answered and said to them, "Have faith in God.
23For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, "Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
24Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
