Next day as they were leaving Bethany and returning to the city in the early morning, Jesus felt hungry. Seeing a fig tree in leaf some distance away by the road, he went to see if he could find any fruit on it. However, when he went up to it, he found nothing on it but leaves; for it was not the season for figs. He said to it, “May you never bear fruit for anyone to eat from you again,” and instantly the fig tree withered.
