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. 13 7 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?' 13 8 And he answered him, 'Let it alone, sir, this year also, till I dig about it and put on manure. 13 9 And if it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.' "
