The king told his men, 'Take his coin away, and give it to the man who has ten.'
"They replied, 'Sir, he already has ten coins.'
"'I can guarantee that everyone who has something will be given more. But everything will be taken away from those who don't have much.
Bring my enemies, who didn't want me to be their king. Kill them in front of me.'"
After Jesus had given this illustration, he continued on his way to Jerusalem.
When he came near Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives (as it was called), Jesus sent two of his disciples ahead of him.
He said to them, "Go into the village ahead of you. As you enter, you will find a young donkey tied there. No one has ever sat on it. Untie it, and bring it.
If anyone asks you why you are untying it, say that the Lord needs it."
The men Jesus sent found it as he had told them.
While they were untying the young donkey, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the donkey?"
The disciples answered, "The Lord needs it."
