And awhen they drew nigh unto Jerusalem, and were come to bBethphage, unto cthe mount of Olives, then sent Jesus two disciples, 2 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. 3 And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. 4 dAll this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, 5 eTell ye the daughter of Sion, fBehold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. 6 And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them, 7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him gthereon. 8 And a very great multitude hspread their garments in the way; others icut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way. 9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, kHosanna to the Son of David: lBlessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord; kHosanna min the highest. 10 nAnd when he was come into Jerusalem, oall the city was moved, saying, Who is this? 11 And the multitude said, This is Jesus pthe prophet of qNazareth of Galilee.
