1 Now a when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to 1 Bethphage, at b the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, 2 saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me. 3 "And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, 'The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them." 4 2 All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
"Tell c the daughter of Zion,
' Behold, your King is coming to you,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.' " 3
d So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them.
They brought the donkey and the colt, e laid their clothes on them, 4 and set Him on them.
And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; f others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road.
Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying:
"Hosanna to the Son of David!
g ' Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' 5
Hosanna in the highest!" 10 h And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, "Who is this?" 11 So the multitudes said, "This is Jesus, i the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee."
