The Triumphal Entry

1 And when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, "Go into the village before you, and right away you will find a donkey tied and a colt with her. Untie [them]a [and]b bring [them]c to me. 3 And if anyone says anything to you, you will say, 'The Lord {needs them},'d and he will send them at once." 4 Now this took place so that what was spoken through the prophet would be fulfilled, saying, 5 "Say to the daughter of Zion, 'Behold, your king is coming to you, humble and mounted on a donkey, ande on a colt, the foal of a pack animal.'"f 6 So the disciples wentg and didh just as Jesus directed them, 7 [and]i brought the donkey and the colt and put theirj cloaks on them, and he sat on them. 8 And a very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading [them]k on the road. 9 And the crowds who went ahead of him and the ones who followed were shouting, saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed [is] the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest [heaven]!" 10 And [when]l he entered into Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, "Who is this?" 11 And the crowds were saying, "This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth of Galilee!"
