Luke 13:6 - 9
He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came
and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit
on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?
And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and
And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
