Jesus Curses the Fig Tree
w On the following day, when they came from Bethany, x he was hungry.
y And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for z it was not the season for figs.
And he said to it, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard it.
