 206a   The  BARREN  FIG TREE 
   Matt       Mark    Luke 13
     6  And he told this parable,
      "A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard;
      and he came seeking fruit on it
      and found none.


And he said to the vinedresser,


'Lo these three years I have come
      seeking fruit on this fig tree,
      and I find none.


Cut it down;
      why should it use up the ground?'


And he answered him,
      'Let it alone, sir, this year also,
      till I dig about it and put on manure.


And if it bears fruit next year,
      well and good;
      but if not, you can cut it down."
