30 saying, Go your way into the village over against [you]; in which as ye enter ye shall find a colt tied, whereon no man ever yet sat: loose him, and bring him. 30 "Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.

33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?"
34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him. 34 They replied, "The Lord needs it."
