[1] [Arabic, p. 125] 22412241    Mark xi. 19.And when evening came, Jesus went forth outside of the city, he and his [2] disciples.  22422242    Mark xi. 20.And as they passed in the morning, the disciples saw that fig tree [3] withered away from its root.  22432243    Matt. xxi. 20b.And they passed by, and said, How did the fig tree dry [4] up immediately?  22442244    Mark xi. 21.And Simon remembered, and said unto him, My Master, behold, 94[5] that fig tree which thou didst curse hath dried up.  22452245    Mark xi. 22.And Jesus answered and said [6] unto them, Let there be in you the faith of God.  22462246    Mark xi. 23.Verily I say unto you, if ye believe, and doubt not in your hearts, and assure yourselves that that will be which [7] ye say, ye shall have what ye say.  22472247    Matt. xxi. 21b.And if ye say to this mountain, Remove, and [8] fall22482248    Syr. into the sea, it shall be.  22492249    Matt. xxi. 22.And all that ye ask God in prayer, and believe, he [9, 10] will give you.  22502250    Luke xvii. 5.And the apostles22512251    The Syriac word. said unto our Lord, Increase our22522252    Lit. Increase us in. faith.  22532253    Luke xvii. 6.He said unto them, If there be in you faith like a grain of mustard, ye shall say to this fig tree, Be thou torn up, and be thou planted in the sea; and it will obey you.  [11] 22542254    Luke xvii. 7.Who of you hath a servant driving a yoke of oxen or tending sheep, and if he [12] come from the field, will say unto him straightway, Go and sit down?  22552255    Luke xvii. 8.Nay,22562256    Or, But. he will say unto him, Make ready for me wherewith I may sup, and gird thy waist, and serve me, till I eat and drink; and afterwards thou shalt eat and drink also.  [13] 22572257    Luke xvii. 9.Doth that servant haply, who did what he was bid, receive his praise?  I think [14] not.  22582258    Luke xvii. 10.So ye also, when ye have done all that ye were bid, say, We are idle servants; what it was our duty to do, we have done.

[15] 22592259    Mark xi. 24.For this reason I say unto you, Whatever ye pray and ask, believe that ye [16] [Arabic, p. 126] receive, and ye shall have.  22602260    Mark xi. 25.And when ye stand to pray, forgive what is in your heart against any man; and your Father which is in heaven will [17] forgive you also your wrong-doings.  22612261    Mark xi. 26.But if ye forgive not men their wrong-doings, neither will your Father forgive you also your wrong-doings.

[18] 22622262    Luke xviii. 1.And he spake unto them a parable also, that they should pray at all times, and [19] not be slothful:  22632263    Luke xviii. 2.There was a judge in a city, who feared not God, nor was ashamed [20] for men:  22642264    Luke xviii. 3.and there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, and said, [21] Avenge me of mine adversary.  22652265    Luke xviii. 4.And he would not for a long time:  but afterwards he said within himself, If of God I have no fear, and before men I have no shame; [22] 22662266    Luke xviii. 5.yet because this widow vexeth me, I will avenge her, that she come not at all times [23, 24] and annoy me.  22672267    Luke xviii. 6.And our Lord said, Hear ye what the judge of injustice said.  22682268    Luke xviii. 7.And shall not God still more do vengeance for his elect, who call upon him in the night [25] and in the day, and grant them respite?  22692269    Luke xviii. 8.I say unto you, He will do vengeance for them speedily. Thinkest thou the Son of man will come and find faith on the earth?

[26, 27] 22702270    Mark xi. 15a.And they came again to Jerusalem.  22712271    Luke xx. 1.And it came to pass, on one of the days, as Jesus was walking in the temple, and teaching the people, and preaching the [28] gospel, 22722272    Luke xx. 2a.that the chief priests and the scribes with the elders came upon him, and said unto him, Tell us:  22732273    Mark xi. 28b.By what power doest thou this? and who gave thee this [29] power to do that?  22742274    Mark xi. 29a; Matt. xxi. 24b.And Jesus said unto them, I also will ask you one word, and if [30] ye tell me, I also shall tell you by what power I do that.  22752275    Matt. xxi. 25a.The baptism of John, from [31] what place is it? from heaven or of men?  22762276    Mark xi. 30b.Tell me.  22772277    Matt. xxi. 25b.And they reflected within themselves, [Arabic, p. 127] and said, If we shall say unto him, From heaven; he will say unto [32] us, For what reason did ye not believe him?  22782278    Matt. xxi. 26a.But22792279    Verse 26 begins here in the Greek. if we shall say, Of men; [33] we fear22802280    From Mark. that the people will stone us, all of them.  22812281    Luke xx. 6b; Mark xi. 32b.And all of them were holding22822282    cf. Syriac. [34] to John, that he was a true prophet.  22832283    Mark xi. 33.They answered and said unto him, We know [35] not.  22842284    Matt. xxi. 28.Jesus said unto them, Neither tell I you also by what power I work.  What think ye?  A man had two sons; and he went to the first, and said unto him, My [36] son, go to-day, and till in the vineyard.  22852285    Matt. xxi. 29.And he answered and said, I do not wish [37] to:  but finally he repented, and went.  22862286    Matt. xxi. 30.And he went to the other, and said unto [38] him likewise.  22872287    Matt. xxi. 31.And he answered and said, Yea, my lord:  and went not.  Which of these two did the will of his father?  They said unto him, The first.  Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, The publicans and harlots go before you into [39] the kingdom of God.  22882288    Matt. xxi. 32.John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not; but the publicans and harlots believed him; and ye, not even when ye saw, did ye repent at last, that ye might believe in him.

[40] 22892289    Matt. xxi. 33a.Hear another parable:  A man was a householder, and planted a vineyard, and surrounded it with a hedge, and digged in it a winepress, and built in it a tower, [41, 42] 22902290    Luke xx. 9b.and gave it to husbandmen, and went to a distance for a long time.  22912291    Mark xxi. 34.So when the time of the fruits came, he sent his servants22922292    The difference between singular and plural is very slight in Arabic. unto the husbandmen, that they might 95[43] send him of the produce22932293    Lit. property. of his vineyard.  22942294    Mark xii. 3b.And those husbandmen beat him, and [44] sent him away empty.  22952295    Mark xii. 4.And he sent unto them another servant also; and they [45] stoned him, and wounded22962296    A word used specially of wounding the head. him, and sent him away with shameful handling.  22972297    Mark xii. 5a.And he sent again another; and they slew him.  And he sent many other servants unto [46] them.  22982298    Matt. xxi. 35.And the husbandmen took his servants, and one they beat, and another they [47] stoned, and another they slew.  22992299    Matt. xxi. 36.So he sent again other servants more than the first; and [48] [Arabic, p. 128] they did likewise with them.  23002300    Luke xx. 13.So the owner of the vineyard said, What shall I do?  I will send my beloved son:  it may be they will see him and be [49, 50] ashamed.  23012301    Mark xii. 6a.So at last he sent unto them his beloved son that he had.  23022302    Matt. xxi. 38a.But the husbandmen, when they saw the son, said amongst themselves, This is the heir.  [51, 52] 23032303    Luke xx. 14b.And they said, We will slay him, and so the inheritance will be ours.  23042304    Matt. xxi. 39.So they took [53] him, and put him forth without the vineyard, and slew him.  23052305    Matt. xxi. 40.When then the lord [54] of the vineyard shall come, what will he do with those husbandmen?  23062306    Matt. xxi. 41.They said unto him, He will destroy them in the worst of ways,23072307    cf. Syriac versions. and give the vineyard to [55] other husbandmen, who will give him fruit in its season.  23082308    Matt. xxi. 42a.Jesus said unto them, Have ye never read in the scripture,

The stone which the builders declared to be base,

23092309    Luke xx. 17b.The same came to be at the head of the corner:

[56] 23102310    Matt. xxi. 42c.From God was this,

And it is wonderful in our eyes?

[57] 23112311    Matt. xxi. 43.Therefore I say unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and [58] given to a people that will produce fruit.  23122312    Matt. xxi. 44.And whosoever falleth on this stone shall be broken in pieces:  but on whomsoever it falleth, it will grind him to [59] powder.  23132313    Matt. xxi. 45.And when the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they [60] perceived that it was concerning them he spake.  23142314    Matt. xxi. 46.And they sought to seize him; and they feared the multitude, because they were holding to him as the prophet.
