11 As they *approached Jerusalem, at Bethphage and Bethany, near the Mount of Olives, He *sent two of His disciples,2 and *said to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here.3 If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ you say, ‘The Lord has need of it’; and immediately he [a]will send it back here.”4 They went away and found a colt tied at the door, outside in the street; and they *untied it.5 Some of the bystanders were saying to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?”6 They spoke to them just as Jesus had told them, and they gave them permission.7 They *brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it; and He sat on it.8 And many spread their coats in the road, and others spread leafy branches which they had cut from the fields.9 Those who went in front and those who followed were shouting:
“Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord; 10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David; Hosanna in the highest!”
29 When He approached Bethphage and Bethany, near the [a]mount that is called Olivet, 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.’”32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them.33 As they were untying the colt, its [b]owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?”34 They said, “The Lord has need of it.”35 They brought it to Jesus, and they threw their coats on the colt and put Jesus on it.36 As He was going, they were spreading their coats on the road.37 As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God [c]joyfully with a loud voice for all the [d]miracles which they had seen,38 shouting:
“Blessed is theKing who comes in the name of the Lord; Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
