1As they were approaching Yerushalayim, they came to Beit-Pagei on the Mount of Olives. Yeshua sent two talmidim2with these instructions: "Go into the village ahead of you, and you will immediately find a donkey tethered there with its colt. Untie them and bring them to me.3If anyone says anything to you, tell him, `The Lord needs them'; and he will let them go at once."4This happened in order to fulfill what had been spoken through the prophet,5"Say to the daughter of Tziyon, `Look! Your King is coming to you, riding humbly on a donkey, and on a colt, the offspring of a beast of burden!'6So the talmidim went and did as Yeshua had directed them.7They brought the donkey and the colt and put their robes on them, and Yeshua sat on them.8Crowds of people carpeted the road with their clothing, while others cut branches from trees and spread them on the road.9The crowds ahead of him and behind shouted, "Please! Deliver us!" to the Son of David; "Blessed is he who comes in the name of ADONAI!" "You in the highest heaven! Please! Deliver us!"10When he entered Yerushalayim, the whole city was stirred. "Who is this?" they asked.11And the crowds answered, "This is Yeshua, the prophet from Natzeret in the Galil."
1As they were approaching Yerushalayim, near Beit-Pagei and Beit-Anyah, by the Mount of Olives, Yeshua sent two of his talmidim2with these instructions: "Go into the village ahead of you; and as soon as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there that has never been ridden. Untie it, and bring it here.3If anyone asks you, `Why are you doing this?' tell him, `The Lord needs it,' and he will send it here right away."4They went off and found a colt in the street tied in a doorway, and they untied it.5The bystanders said to them, "What are you doing, untying that colt?"6They gave the answer Yeshua had told them to give, and they let them continue.7They brought the colt to Yeshua and threw their robes on it, and he sat on it.8Many people carpeted the road with their clothing, while others spread out green branches which they had cut in the fields.9Those who were ahead and those behind shouted, "Please! Deliver us!"m "Blessed is he who comes in the name of ADONAI!"10"Blessed is the coming Kingdom of our father David!" and, "You in the highest heaven! Please! Deliver us!"
29As he approached Beit-Pagei and Beit-Anyah, by the Mount of Olives, he sent two talmidim,30instructing them, "Go into the village ahead; on entering it, you will find a colt tied up that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here.31If anyone asks why you are untying it, tell him, `The Lord needs it.'"32Those who were sent went off and found it just as he had told them.33As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?"34and they said, "Because the Lord needs it."35They brought it to Yeshua; and, throwing their robes on the colt, they put Yeshua on it.36As he went along, people carpeted the road with their clothing;37and as he came near Yerushalayim, where the road descends from the Mount of Olives, the entire band of talmidim began to sing and praise God at the top of their voices for all the powerful works they had seen:38"Blessed is the King who is coming in the name of ADONAI!" "Shalom in heaven!" and "Glory in the highest places!"39Some of the P'rushim in the crowd said to him, "Rabbi! Reprimand your talmidim!"40But he answered them, "I tell you that if they keep quiet, the stones will shout!"
12The next day, the large crowd that had come for the festival heard that Yeshua was on his way into Yerushalayim.13They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Deliver us!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of ADONAI, the King of Isra'el!"14After finding a donkey colt, Yeshua mounted it, just as the Tanakh says --15"Daughter of Tziyon, don't be afraid! Look! your King is coming, sitting on a donkey's colt."16His talmidim did not understand this at first; but after Yeshua had been glorified, then they remembered that the Tanakh said this about him, and that they had done this for him.17The group that had been with him when he called El`azar out of the tomb and raised him from the dead had been telling about it.18It was because of this too that the crowd came out to meet him -- they had heard that he had performed this miracle.19The P'rushim said to each other, "Look, you're getting nowhere! Why, the whole world has gone after him!"
