1 When they were approaching Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples 1 As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples,
2 and said to them, "Go into the village ahead of you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden; untie it and bring it. 2 saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and just as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.
3 If anyone says to you, "Why are you doing this?' just say this, "The Lord needs it and will send it back here immediately.' " 3 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you doing this?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it and will send it back here shortly.' "
4 They went away and found a colt tied near a door, outside in the street. As they were untying it, 4 They went and found a colt outside in the street, tied at a doorway. As they untied it,
5 some of the bystanders said to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?" 5 some people standing there asked, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"
6 They told them what Jesus had said; and they allowed them to take it. 6 They answered as Jesus had told them to, and the people let them go.
7 Then they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it; and he sat on it. 7 When they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks over it, he sat on it.
8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut in the fields. 8 Many people spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread branches they had cut in the fields.

10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest heaven!" 10 "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!" "Hosanna in the highest!"
