Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me, - because, meek, am I and lowly, in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls;
Tell ye the daughter of Zion, Lo! thy King, is coming unto thee, meek and mounted upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of a toiling ass.
And they bring the colt unto Jesus, and throw upon him their mantles, - and he took his seat upon him.
saying - Go your way unto the opposite village, in which, as ye are entering, ye shall find a colt, bound, whereon, no man, hath, ever sat, - and, having loosed him, bring him.

Open thy mouth - judge righteously, - and administer justice for the poor and the needy.
He will not cry out nor will he speak loud, - Nor cause to be heard, in the street, his voice:
But joy ye and exult, perpetually, in what I am about to create, - For, behold me! Creating Jerusalem an exultation and Her People a joy;
Lo! days are coming, Declareth Yahweh, - when I will establish my good word, which I have spoken - As to the house of Israel And concerning the house of Judah:
He will not strive, nor will he cry out, nor shall any hear, in the broadways, his voice:
He hath laid hold of Israel his servant, to be mindful of mercies:
And, they, said - His Lord, hath, need.
