Luke 19:28–40

29 aWhen He approached Bethphage and bBethany, near the 1mount that is called cOlivet, He sent two of the disciples,

30 saying, Go into the village ahead of you; there, as you enter, you will find a colt tied on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here.

31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say,The Lord has need of it.’ ”

33 As they were untying the colt, its 1owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?”

37 As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of athe Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to bpraise God 1joyfully with a loud voice for all the 2miracles which they had seen,

38 shouting:

aBlessed is the bKing who comes in the name of the Lord;
