The Coming King of Zion

(A)Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
    Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem!
(B)Behold, (C)your king is coming to you;
    righteous and having salvation is he,
(D)humble and mounted on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
10 (E)I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim
    and (F)the war horse from Jerusalem;
and the battle bow shall be cut off,
    and (G)he shall speak peace to the nations;
(H)his rule shall be from sea to sea,
    and from (I)the River[a] to the ends of the earth.
11 As for you also, because of (J)the blood of my covenant with you,
    (K)I will set your prisoners free from (L)the waterless pit.
12 Return to your stronghold, O (M)prisoners of hope;
    today I declare that (N)I will restore to you double.
13 For (O)I have bent Judah as my bow;
    I have made Ephraim its arrow.
I will stir up your sons, O Zion,
    against your sons, (P)O Greece,
    and wield you like a warrior's sword.

The Triumphal Entry

28 And when he had said these things, (A)he went on ahead, (B)going up to Jerusalem. 29 (C)When he drew near to Bethphage and (D)Bethany, at (E)the mount that is called Olivet, he sent (F)two of the disciples, 30 saying, “Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, (G)on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32 So those who were sent went away and found it (H)just as he had told them. 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34 And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36 And as he rode along, they (I)spread their cloaks on the road. 37 As he was drawing near—already on the way down the Mount of Olives—(J)the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice (K)for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38 saying, (L)“Blessed is (M)the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and (N)glory in the highest!”

A Samaritan Village Rejects Jesus

51 When the days drew near for (A)him to be taken up, (B)he set his face (C)to go to Jerusalem. 52 And (D)he sent messengers ahead of him, who went and entered a village of (E)the Samaritans, to make preparations for him. 53 But (F)the people did not receive him, because (G)his face was set toward Jerusalem.
