Matthew 21:1-11

The Triumphal Entry

1 a  Now when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Bethphage, to b  the Mount of Olives, then Jesus c  sent two disciples, 2saying to them, Go into the village in front of you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Untie them and bring them to me. 3If anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord needs them,’ and he will send them at once.” 4This took place d  to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet, saying,

5 e  Say to the daughter of Zion,
Behold, your king is coming to you,
f  humble, and mounted on a donkey,
on a colt,
Or donkey, and on a colt,
the foal of a beast of burden.’”

6The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them. 7They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. 8Most of the crowd h  spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting i  Hosanna to j  the Son of David! k  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna l  in the highest!” 10And m  when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, “Who is this?” 11And the crowds said, “This is n  the prophet Jesus o  from Nazareth of Galilee.”

Mark 11:1-10

The Triumphal Entry

1 p  Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to q  Bethphage and Bethany, at r  the Mount of Olives, Jesus
Greek he
sent t  two of his disciples
2and said to them, Go into the village in front of you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a colt tied u  on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it. 3If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘The Lord has need of it and will send it back here immediately.’” 4And they went away and found a colt tied at a door outside in the street, and they untied it. 5And some of those standing there said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” 6And they told them what Jesus had said, and they let them go. 7And they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their cloaks on it, and he sat on it. 8And many v  spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields. 9And those who went before and those who followed were shouting w  Hosanna! x  Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! 10Blessed is y  the coming z  kingdom of aa  our father ab  David! ac  Hosanna ad  in the highest!”

Luke 19:28-40

The Triumphal Entry

28And when he had said these things ae  he went on ahead af  going up to Jerusalem. 29 ag  When he drew near to Bethphage and ah  Bethany, at ai  the mount that is called Olivet, he sent aj  two of the disciples, 30saying, Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied ak  on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. 31If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say this: ‘The Lord has need of it.’” 32So those who were sent went away and found it al  just as he had told them. 33And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?” 34And they said, “The Lord has need of it.” 35And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. 36And as he rode along, they am  spread their cloaks on the road. 37As he was drawing nearalready on the way down the Mount of Olivesan  the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice ao  for all the mighty works that they had seen, 38saying ap  Blessed is aq  the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and ar  glory in the highest!” 39 as  And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 40He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent at  the very stones would cry out.”
