Luke 19:28-44

The Triumphal Entry

28 And when he had said these things, 1he went on ahead, 2going up to Jerusalem.
29 3When he drew near to Bethphage and 4Bethany, at 5the mount that is called Olivet, he sent 6two of the disciples,
30 saying, "Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, 7on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here.
31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' you shall say this: 'The Lord has need of it.'"
32 So those who were sent went away and found it 8just as he had told them.
33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?"
34 And they said, "The Lord has need of it."
35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it.
36 And as he rode along, they 9spread their cloaks on the road.
37 As he was drawing near--already on the way down the Mount of Olives--10the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice 11for all the mighty works that they had seen,
38 saying, 12"Blessed is 13the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and 14glory in the highest!"
39 15And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples."
40 He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, 16the very stones would cry out."

Jesus Weeps over Jerusalem

41 17And when he drew near and saw the city, 18he wept over it,
42 saying, 19"Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now 20they are hidden from your eyes.
43 For 21the days will come upon you, when your enemies 22will set up a barricade around you and 23surround you and hem you in on every side
44 24and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And 25they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know 26the time of your 27visitation."

Luke 19:28-44 In-Context

26 'I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
27 But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me.'"
28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.
29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples,
30 saying, "Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here.
31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' you shall say this: 'The Lord has need of it.'"
32 So those who were sent went away 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?"
34 And they said, "The Lord has need of it."
35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it.

45 And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold,
46 saying to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be a house of prayer,' but you have made it a den of robbers."
