Jesus Curses the Fig Tree

Matthew 21

18 q Now in the morning, as He returned to the city, He was hungry. 19 r And seeing a fig tree by the road, He came to it and found nothing on it but leaves, and said to it, "Let no fruit grow on you ever again." Immediately the fig tree withered away.

20 s And when the disciples saw it, they marveled, saying, "How did the fig tree wither away so soon?" 21 So Jesus answered and said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you, t if you have faith and u do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, v but also if you say to this mountain, 'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' it will be done. 22 "And w whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."
