(and they said to him, Sir, he hath ten pounds) --

and if any one doth question you, Wherefore do ye loose [it]? thus ye shall say to him -- The Lord hath need of it.'
And those sent, having gone away, found according as he said to them,
and while they are loosing the colt, its owners said unto them, `Why loose ye the colt?'
