And when they were drawing near to Jerusalem and to Bethania, 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 immediately at your coming in thither, you shall find a colt tied, upon which no man yet hath sat. Loose him and bring him.
And if any man shall say to you: What are you doing? Say ye that the Lord hath need of him. And immediately he will let him come hither.
And going their way, they found the colt tied before the gate without, in the meeting of two ways. And they loose him.
And some of them that stood there said to them: What do you loosing the colt?
Who said to them as Jesus had commanded them. And they let him go with them.
And they brought the colt to Jesus. And they lay their garments on him: and he sat upon him.
And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down boughs from the trees and strewed them in the way.
And they that went before and they that followed cried, saying: Hosanna: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the kingdom of our father David that cometh: Hosanna in the highest.
And he entered into Jerusalem, into the temple: and having viewed all things round about, when now the eventide was come, he went out to Bethania with the twelve.
