And, when He entered into Jerusalem, all the city was startled, saying, "Who is this?"
And the multitudes, who were going before Him, and those who were following, were crying, saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He Who cometh in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!" And, when He entered into Jerusalem, all the city was startled, saying, "Who is this?"
And, when they draw nigh to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, He sendeth two of His disciples, and saith to them, "Go into the village that is over against you; and straightway, as ye enter into it, ye will find a colt tied, on which no man ever yet sat: loose him, and bring him. And, if any one say to you, 'Why do ye this?' say ye, 'The Lord hath need of him;' and straight-way he will send him back hither." read more.
And they went away, and found a colt tied at the door without on the street; and they loose him. And some of those standing there said to them, "What do ye, loosing the colt?" And they said to them even as Jesus said; and they let them go. And they bring the colt to Jesus, and cast on him their garments; and He sat on him. And many spread their garments in the way; and others spread branches, having cut them from the fields. And those going before, and those following, were crying, "Hosanna! Blessed is He That cometh in the name of the Lord! Blessed is the coming Kingdom of our father David! Hosanna in the Highest!" And He entered into Jerusalem, into the temple; and, having looked around on all things, the hour being late, He went out to Bethany with the twelve.
And, when they drew near to Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, to the mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples. saying to them, "Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye will find an ass tied, and a colt with her; having loosed them, lead them to Me. And, if any one say anything to you, ye shall say, 'The Lord hath need of them;' and straight-way he will send them." read more.
Now this has come to pass, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, "Say to the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your King is coming to you, meek and mounted upon an ass, and on a colt, a foal of a beast of burden.'" And the disciples, going and doing as Jesus commanded them, led the ass and the colt, and put upon them their garments; and He sat thereon. And most of the multitude spread their own garments in the way, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them in the way. And the multitudes, who were going before Him, and those who were following, were crying, saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He Who cometh in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!" And, when He entered into Jerusalem, all the city was startled, saying, "Who is this?" And the multitudes said, "This is the Prophet, Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee."
And it came to pass that, as He drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, He sent two of His disciples, saying, "Go your way into the village over against you, in which as ye are entering, ye will find a colt tied, on which no man ever sat; and, having loosed him, bring him. And, if any one ask you, 'Why do ye loose him?' thus shall ye say, 'Because the Lord hath need of him.'" read more.
And those sent, having gone away, found even as He said to them. And, as they were loosing the colt, his owners said to them, "Why loose ye the colt?" And they said, The Lord hath need of him." And they led him to Jesus; and, having thrown their garments upon the colt, they sat Jesus thereon. And, as He was going forward, they were spreading their garments in the way. And, as He was already drawing nigh to the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples, rejoicing, began to praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works which they saw; saying, "Blessed is the King Who is coming in the name of the Lord! Peace in Heaven, and glory in the highest!" And some of the Pharisees from the multitude said to Him, "Teacher, rebuke Thy disciples!" And, answering, He said, "I tell you that, if these shall be silent, the stones will cry out!" And, when He came near, seeing the city, He wept over it, saying, "If you knew, in this your day??ven you??he things pertaining to peace! but just now were they hid from your eyes! Because the days will come upon you, when your enemies will cast a rampart about you, and compass you round, and hem you in on all sides; and they will dash you to the ground, and your children within you; and shall not leave in you a stone upon a stone; because you knew not the season of your visitation."
On the morrow a great multitude that had come to the feast, having heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took the branches of the palm trees, and went forth to meet Him, and cried, "Hosanna! blessed is He Who is coming in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!" And Jesus, having found a young ass, sat upon it; as it has been written, read more.
"Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold, your King is coming upon an ass colt." These things His disciples did not understand at the first; but, when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about Him, and that they did these things to Him. The multitude, therefore, that was with Him when He called Lazarus out of the tomb, and raised him from the dead, was bearing testimony. On this account also, the multitude met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign. The Pharisees, therefore, said among themselves, "Ye see that ye are effecting nothing! Behold, the world went away after Him!"
