This took place (A)to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying,

(B)“Say to the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your king is coming to you,
    (C)humble, and mounted on a donkey,
    on a colt,[a] the foal of a beast of burden.’”

The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. Most of the crowd (D)spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, (E)“Hosanna to (F)the Son of David! (G)Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna (H)in the highest!”
