The Triumphal Entry

12 The next day (A)the large crowd that had come to the feast heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem. 13 So they took branches of (B)palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, (C)“Hosanna! Blessed is (D)he who comes in the name of the Lord, even (E)the King of Israel!” 14 And Jesus found a young donkey and sat on it, just as it is written,

15 (F)“Fear not, daughter of Zion;
behold, your king is coming,
    sitting on a donkey's colt!”

16 (G)His disciples did not understand these things at first, but (H)when Jesus was glorified, then (I)they remembered that these things had been written about him and had been done to him. 17 (J)The crowd that had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb and raised him from the dead continued to bear witness. 18 The reason why the crowd went to meet him (K)was that they heard he had done this sign. 19 So the Pharisees said to one another, (L)“You see that you are gaining nothing. Look, (M)the world has gone after him.”

Job Continues: Where Then Is My Hope?

17 “My spirit is broken; my days are (A)extinct;
    (B)the graveyard is ready for me.
Surely there are mockers about me,
    and my eye dwells on their (C)provocation.

“Lay down a pledge for me with you;
    who is there who will put up (D)security for me?
Since you have closed their hearts to understanding,
    therefore you will not let them triumph.
He who informs against his friends to get a share of their property—
    the (E)eyes of his children will fail.

“He has made me (F)a byword of the peoples,
    and I am one before whom men spit.
My (G)eye has grown dim from vexation,
    and all my members are like (H)a shadow.
The upright are (I)appalled at this,
    and the innocent stirs himself up against the godless.
Yet the righteous holds to his way,
    and he who has (J)clean hands grows stronger and stronger.
10 But you, (K)come on again, all of you,
    and I shall not find a wise man among you.
11 My (L)days are past; my plans are broken off,
    the desires of my heart.
12 They (M)make night into day:
    ‘The light,’ they say, ‘is near to the darkness.’[a]
13 If I hope for (N)Sheol as (O)my house,
    if I make my bed in darkness,
14 if I say to the pit, ‘You are my father,’
    and to the worm, ‘My mother,’ or ‘My sister,’
15 where then is my hope?
    Who will see my hope?
16 Will it go down to the bars of (P)Sheol?
    Shall we (Q)descend together (R)into the dust?”[b]
