New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
28 After he had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. 28 After Jesus had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.
29 When he had come near Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of the disciples, 29 As he approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, saying to them,
30 saying, "Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 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.
31 If anyone asks you, "Why are you untying it?' just say this, "The Lord needs it.' " 31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it.' "
32 So those who were sent departed and found it as he had told them. 32 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them.
33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?" 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?"
34 They said, "The Lord needs it." 34 They replied, "The Lord needs it."
35 Then they brought it to Jesus; and after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 35 They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it.
36 As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road. 36 As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road.
37 As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, 37 When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:
38 saying, "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!" 38 "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, order your disciples to stop." 39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"
40 He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out." 40 "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."
41 As he came near and saw the city, he wept over it, 41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it
42 saying, "If you, even you, had only recognized on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. 42 and said, "If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace--but now it is hidden from your eyes.
43 Indeed, the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up ramparts around you and surround you, and hem you in on every side. 43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side.
44 They will crush you to the ground, you and your children within you, and they will not leave within you one stone upon another; because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God." 44 They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God's coming to you."
