The Triumphal Entry

11 When(A) they approached Jerusalem,(B) at Bethphage and Bethany(C) near the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples and told them, “Go into the village ahead of you. As soon as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it. If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord needs it and will send it back here right away.’”

So they went and found a colt outside in the street, tied by a door. They untied it, and some of those standing there said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” They answered them just as Jesus had said; so they let them go.

They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their clothes on it, and he sat on it. Many people spread their clothes on the road,(D) and others spread leafy branches cut from the fields.[a] Those who went ahead and those who followed shouted:

Hosanna!
Blessed is he who comes
in the name(E) of the Lord![b](F)
10 Blessed is the coming kingdom(G)
of our father David!(H)
Hosanna(I) in the highest heaven!

The Triumphal Entry

28 When(A) he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.(B) 29 As he approached Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives,(C) he sent two of the disciples 30 and said, “Go into the village ahead of you. As you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say this: ‘The Lord needs it.’”

32 So those who were sent left and found it just as he had told them.(D) 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?”

34 “The Lord needs it,” they said. 35 Then(E) they brought it to Jesus, and after throwing their clothes on the colt, they helped Jesus get on it.(F) 36 As he was going along, they were spreading their clothes on the road.(G) 37 Now he came near the path down the Mount of Olives, and the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles they had seen:

38 Blessed is the King(H) who comes
in the name of the Lord.[a](I)
Peace in heaven
and glory(J) in the highest heaven!(K)

The Triumphal Entry

12 The(A) next day, when the large crowd that had come to the festival heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 they took palm branches(B) and went out to meet him. They kept shouting:

“Hosanna!(C)
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord[a](D) —the King of Israel!” (E)

14 Jesus found a young donkey(F) and sat on it, just as it is written:

15 Do not be afraid,(G)
Daughter Zion. Look, your King is coming,
sitting on a donkey’s colt.[b](H)

16 His disciples did not understand these things at first. However, when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things had been written about him(I) and that they had done these things to him.

17 Meanwhile, the crowd, which had been with him when he called Lazarus out of the tomb(J) and raised him from the dead, continued to testify.[c] 18 This is also why the crowd met him, because they heard he had done this sign. 19 Then the Pharisees said to one another, “You see? You’ve accomplished nothing. Look, the world has gone after him!” (K)
