1. And at that time some were present, who told him of the Galileans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2. And Jesus answering said to them, Do you imagine that these Galileans were sinners beyond all the Galileans, because they
suffered such things? 3. I tell you, no; but unless you repent, you will all perish in like manner. 4. Or those eighteen, on whom the tower in Siloah
fell and slew them, do you imagine that they were debtors beyond all men that dwell in Jerusalem?
5. I tell you, no; but unless you repent, you shall all perish in like manner. 6. And he spake this parable: A certain man had a fig-tree planted in his vineyard, and came seeking fruit on it, and did not
find it. 7. And he said to the vine-dresser, Lo, there are three years that I come seeking fruit on this fig-tree, and find none: cut
it down; why does it even occupy the ground?
8. But he answering, said to him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: 9. And if it bear fruit:
but if not, afterwards thou shalt cut it down.
