Untie them and bring them to Me.3 And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them on immediately.”4 Now this [a]took place so that what was spoken through [b]the prophet would be fulfilled:
5 “Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Behold your King is coming to you, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’”
6 The disciples went and did just as Jesus had instructed them,7 and brought the donkey and the colt, and laid their cloaks on them; and He sat on [c]the cloaks.8 Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others were cutting branches from the trees and spreading them on the road.9 Now the crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting,
“[d]Hosanna to the Son of David; Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord; [e]Hosanna in the highest!”
10 When He had entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, “Who is this?”11 And the crowds were saying, “This is Jesus the prophet, from Nazareth in Galilee.”
