      cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

      (b) Happy and prosperous.

Mr 11:13
11:13 {2} And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came,
      if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came

      the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers,

11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry [any] {c}

Mr 11:22
11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have {e} faith in

Mr 11:24
11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire,
      when ye pray, believe that {f} ye receive [them], and ye
