11As they approachedJerusalem, at Bethphage and 2Bethany, near3the Mount of Olives, He senttwo of His disciples,
and said to them, "Go into the villageopposite you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find a colttied there, on whichnooneyet has eversat; untie it and bring it here.3"Ifanyonesays to you, 'Why are you doingthis?' you say, 'The Lordhasneed of it'; and immediately he awill send it backhere."4
They wentaway and found a colttied at the door, outside in the street; and they untied it.
5Some of the bystanders were saying to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?"
They spoke to them just as Jesus had told them, and they gave them permission.
74They brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it; and He sat on it.
And manyspread their coats in the road, and others spread leafybranches which they had cut from the fields.
9Those who went in front and those who followed were shouting: "Hosanna! 5BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD;
10Blessed is the comingkingdom of our fatherDavid; Hosanna6in the highest!"
117Jesus enteredJerusalem and came into the temple; and after lookingaround at everything, 8He left for Bethany with the twelve, since it was alreadylate.
