Chapter 119: Jesus curses a fig tree

1 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things and judged its defenses, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

2 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: 3 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

4 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his warriors heard it, and following the command drew their swords and chopped the tree into dust.

5 And they come to Jerusalem.
