The Triumphal Entry

Matthew 21

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:

5 "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

6 d So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them. 7 They brought the donkey and the colt, e laid their clothes on them, 4 and set Him on them. 8 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. 9 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."
