And when they drew nigh unto Jerusalem and had come to Bethphage unto the Mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples,
saying unto them, "Go into the village opposite you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them unto Me.
And if any man say aught unto you, ye shall say, `The Lord hath need of them,' and straightway he will send them."
All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,
"Tell ye the daughter of Zion, `Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek and sitting upon an ass, and a colt, the foal of an ass.'"
And the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them.
And they brought the ass and the colt and put on them their clothes, and they set Him thereon.
And a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; and others cut down branches from the trees and strewed them in the way.
And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried out, saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!"
And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, "Who is this?"
And the multitude said, "This is Jesus, the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee."
