29 And it came to pass, pwhen he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, 30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither. 31 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him. 32 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them. 33 And as they were loosing the colt, qthe owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt? 34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him. 35 And they brought him to Jesus: rand they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon. 36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way. 37 And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and spraise God with a loud voice for all the tmighty works that they had seen; 38 Saying, Blessed be uthe King that cometh in the name of the Lord: wpeace in heaven, and glory in the highest. 39 xAnd some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples. 40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, ythe stones would immediately cry out.
41 And when zhe was come near, he beheld the city, and awept over it, 42 Saying, bIf thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes. 43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall ccast a trench about thee, and dcompass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, 44 And eshall lay thee even with the ground, and fthy children within thee; and gthey shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not hthe time of thy ivisitation.
