The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ,
According to St. Matthew

<=  Chapter 21  =>

21:1 And when they drew nigh to Jerusalem, and were come to Bethphage, unto Mount Olivet, then Jesus sent two disciples,
et cum adpropinquassent Hierosolymis et venissent Bethfage ad montem Oliveti tunc Iesus misit duos discipulos

21:2 Saying to them: Go ye into the village that is over against you, and immediately you shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them and bring them to me.
dicens eis ite in castellum quod contra vos est et statim invenietis asinam alligatam et pullum cum ea solvite et adducite mihi

21:3 And if any man shall say any thing to you, say ye, that the Lord hath need of them: and forthwith he will let them go.
et si quis vobis aliquid dixerit dicite quia Dominus his opus habet et confestim dimittet eos

21:4 Now all this was done that what was spoken by the prophet might be fulfilled, saying:
hoc autem factum est ut impleretur quod dictum est per prophetam dicentem

21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion: Behold, thy king cometh to thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass and a colt, the foal of her that is used to the yoke.
dicite filiae Sion ecce rex tuus venit tibi mansuetus et sedens super asinam et pullum filium subiugalis

21:6 And the disciples going, did as Jesus commanded them.
euntes autem discipuli fecerunt sicut praecepit illis Iesus

21:7 And they brought the ass and the colt: and laid their garments upon them, and made him sit thereon.
et adduxerunt asinam et pullum et inposuerunt super eis vestimenta sua et eum desuper sedere fecerunt

21:8 And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way: and others cut boughs from the trees, and strewed them in the way:
plurima autem turba straverunt vestimenta sua in via alii autem caedebant ramos de arboribus et sternebant in via

21:9 And the multitudes that went before and that followed, cried, saying: Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.
turbae autem quae praecedebant et quae sequebantur clamabant dicentes osanna Filio David benedictus qui venturus est in nomine Domini osanna in altissimis

21:10 And when he was come into Jerusalem, the whole city was moved, saying: Who is this?
et cum intrasset Hierosolymam commota est universa civitas dicens quis est hic

21:11 And the people said: This is Jesus the prophet, from Nazareth of Galilee.
populi autem dicebant hic est Iesus propheta a Nazareth Galilaeae

21:12 And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all who were selling and buying in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money-changers, and the chairs of them that sold doves.
et intravit Iesus in templum Dei et eiciebat omnes vendentes et ementes in templo et mensas nummulariorum et cathedras vendentium columbas evertit

21:13 And he saith to them: It is written: My house shall be called the house of prayer: but you have made it a den of thieves.
et dicit eis scriptum est domus mea domus orationis vocabitur vos autem fecistis eam speluncam latronum

21:14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple: and he healed them.
et accesserunt ad eum caeci et claudi in templo et sanavit eos

21:15 And the chief priests and Scribes, seeing the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying: Hosanna to the son of David; were moved with indignation.
videntes autem principes sacerdotum et scribae mirabilia quae fecit et pueros clamantes in templo et dicentes osanna Filio David indignati sunt

21:16 And said to him: Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus said to them: Yea, have you never read: Out of the mouth of infants and of sucklings thou hast perfected praise.
et dixerunt ei audis quid isti dicant Iesus autem dicit eis utique numquam legistis quia ex ore infantium et lactantium perfecisti laudem

21:17 And leaving them, he went out of the city into Bethania, and remained there.
et relictis illis abiit foras extra civitatem in Bethaniam ibique mansit

21:18 And in the morning, returning into the city, he was hungry.
mane autem revertens in civitatem esuriit

21:19 And seeing a certain fig tree by the way side, he came to it: and found nothing on it but leaves only, and he saith to it: May no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And immediately the fig-tree withered away.
et videns fici arborem unam secus viam venit ad eam et nihil invenit in ea nisi folia tantum et ait illi numquam ex te fructus nascatur in sempiternum et arefacta est continuo ficulnea

21:20 And the disciples seeing it wondered, saying: How is it presently withered away?
et videntes discipuli mirati sunt dicentes quomodo continuo aruit

21:21 And Jesus answering, said to them: Amen, I say to you, if you shall have faith, and stagger not, not only this of the fig-tree shall you do, but also if you shall say to this mountain, Take up and cast thyself into the sea, it shall be done.
respondens autem Iesus ait eis amen dico vobis si habueritis fidem et non haesitaveritis non solum de ficulnea facietis sed et si monti huic dixeritis tolle et iacta te in mare fiet

21:22 And in all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.
et omnia quaecumque petieritis in oratione credentes accipietis

21:23 And when he was come into the temple, the chief priests and ancients of the people came to him, as he was teaching, saying: By what authority dost thou these things? and who gave thee this authority?
et cum venisset in templum accesserunt ad eum docentem principes sacerdotum et seniores populi dicentes in qua potestate haec facis et quis tibi dedit hanc potestatem

21:24 Jesus answering, said to them: I also will ask you one word, which if you shall tell me, I will also tell you by what authority I do these things.
respondens Iesus dixit illis interrogabo vos et ego unum sermonem quem si dixeritis mihi et ego vobis dicam in qua potestate haec facio

21:25 The baptism of John, whence was it? from heaven or from men? But they thought within themselves, saying:
baptismum Iohannis unde erat e caelo an ex hominibus at illi cogitabant inter se dicentes si dixerimus e caelo dicet nobis quare ergo non credidistis illi

21:26 If we shall say, From heaven, he will say to us: Why then did you not believe him? But if we shall say, From men, we are afraid of the multitude: for all held John as a prophet.
si autem dixerimus ex hominibus timemus turbam omnes enim habent Iohannem sicut prophetam

21:27 And answering Jesus, they said: We know not. And he said to them: Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
et respondentes Iesu dixerunt nescimus ait illis et ipse nec ego dico vobis in qua potestate haec facio

21:28 But what think you: A certain man had two sons, and coming to the first he said: Son, go work today in my vineyard.
quid autem vobis videtur homo habebat duos filios et accedens ad primum dixit fili vade hodie operare in vinea mea

21:29 And he answering, said: I will not. But afterwards, being moved with repentance, he went.
ille autem respondens ait nolo postea autem paenitentia motus abiit

21:30 And coming to the other, he said in like manner. And he answering, said: I go sir. And he went not.
accedens autem ad alterum dixit similiter at ille respondens ait eo domine et non ivit

21:31 Which of the two did the father's will? They say to him: The first. Jesus saith to them: Amen, I say to you, that the publicans and the harlots shall go into the kingdom of God before you.
quis ex duobus fecit voluntatem patris dicunt novissimus dicit illis Iesus amen dico vobis quia publicani et meretrices praecedunt vos in regno Dei

21:32 For John came to you in the way of justice, and you did not believe him. But the publicans and the harlots believed him: but you seeing it, did not even afterwards repent, that you might believe him.
venit enim ad vos Iohannes in via iustitiae et non credidistis ei publicani autem et meretrices crediderunt ei vos autem videntes nec paenitentiam habuistis postea ut crederetis ei

21:33 Hear ye another parable: There was a master of a family who planted a vineyard, and made a hedge round about it, and dug in it a wine-press, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen: and went into a strange country.
aliam parabolam audite homo erat pater familias qui plantavit vineam et sepem circumdedit ei et fodit in ea torcular et aedificavit turrem et locavit eam agricolis et peregre profectus est

21:34 And when the time of the fruits drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
cum autem tempus fructuum adpropinquasset misit servos suos ad agricolas ut acciperent fructus eius

21:35 And the husbandmen having laid hold of his servants, beat one, killed another, and stoned another.
et agricolae adprehensis servis eius alium ceciderunt alium occiderunt alium vero lapidaverunt

21:36 Again he sent other servants more than the former: and they did to them in like manner.
iterum misit alios servos plures prioribus et fecerunt illis similiter

21:37 And last of all he sent to them his son, saying: They will reverence my son.
novissime autem misit ad eos filium suum dicens verebuntur filium meum

21:38 But the husbandmen seeing the son, said among themselves: This is the heir, come, let us kill him, and we shall have his inheritance.
agricolae autem videntes filium dixerunt intra se hic est heres venite occidamus eum et habebimus hereditatem eius

21:39 And taking him, they cast him forth out of the vineyard, and killed him.
et adprehensum eum eiecerunt extra vineam et occiderunt

21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard shall come, what will he do to those husbandmen?
cum ergo venerit dominus vineae quid faciet agricolis illis

21:41 They say to him: He will bring those evil men to an evil end: and will let out his vineyard to other husbandmen, that shall render him the fruit in due season.
aiunt illi malos male perdet et vineam locabit aliis agricolis qui reddant ei fructum temporibus suis

21:42 Jesus saith to them: Have you never read in the Scriptures: The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner? By the Lord this has been done, and it is wonderful in our eyes.
dicit illis Iesus numquam legistis in scripturis lapidem quem reprobaverunt aedificantes hic factus est in caput anguli a Domino factum est istud et est mirabile in oculis nostris

21:43 Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and shall be given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
ideo dico vobis quia auferetur a vobis regnum Dei et dabitur genti facienti fructus eius

21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone, shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
et qui ceciderit super lapidem istum confringetur super quem vero ceciderit conteret eum

21:45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they understood that he spoke of them.
et cum audissent principes sacerdotum et Pharisaei parabolas eius cognoverunt quod de ipsis diceret

21:46 And seeking to lay hands on him, they feared the multitudes: because they held him as a prophet.
et quaerentes eum tenere timuerunt turbas quoniam sicut prophetam eum habebant
