Triumphal Entry

28 After He had said these things, He (A)was going on ahead, (B)going up to Jerusalem.

29 (C)When He approached Bethphage and (D)Bethany, near the [a]mount that is called (E)Olivet, He sent two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village ahead of you; there, as you enter, you will find a colt tied on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them. 33 As they were untying the colt, its [b]owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 They said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 They brought it to Jesus, (F)and they threw their coats on the colt and put Jesus on it. 36 As He was going, they were spreading their coats on the road. 37 As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of (G)the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to (H)praise God [c]joyfully with a loud voice for all the [d]miracles which they had seen, 38 shouting:

(I)Blessed is the (J)King who comes in the name of the Lord;
Peace in heaven and (K)glory in the highest!”

39 (L)Some of the Pharisees [e]in the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.” 40 But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, (M)the stones will cry out!”

41 When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and (N)wept over it, 42 saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes. 43 For the days will come upon you [f]when your enemies will (O)throw up a [g]barricade against you, and (P)surround you and hem you in on every side, 44 and they will level you to the ground and your children within you, and (Q)they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize (R)the time of your visitation.”

A Multitude from the Tribulation

After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could count, from (A)every nation and all tribes and peoples and tongues, standing (B)before the throne and (C)before the Lamb, clothed in (D)white robes, and (E)palm branches were in their hands; 10 and they cry out with a loud voice, saying,

(F)Salvation to our God (G)who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” 11 And all the angels were standing (H)around the throne and around (I)the elders and the (J)four living creatures; and they (K)fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12 saying,

(L)Amen, (M)blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. (N)Amen.”
