Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
28 And when 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 drew near to Beth'phage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, 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 opposite, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat; 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 any one asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' you shall say this, 'The Lord has need of it.'" 31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it.' "
32 So those who were sent went away 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 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to 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 And they said, "The Lord has need of it." 34 They replied, "The Lord needs it."
35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their garments on the colt they set Jesus upon it. 35 They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it.
36 And as he rode along, they spread their garments on the road. 36 As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road.
37 As he was now drawing near, at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works 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!" 38 "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
39 And some of the Pharisees in the multitude said to him, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples." 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 very stones would cry out." 40 "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."
41 And when he drew near and saw the city he wept over it, 41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it
42 saying, "Would that even today you knew the things that make for peace! But now they are hid 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 For the days shall come upon you, when your enemies will cast up a bank about 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 and dash you to the ground, you and your children within you, and they will not leave one stone upon another in you; because you did not know the time of your visitation." 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."
