Matthew 21:1-11
When they had come near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, 
Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, ‘Go into the village ahead of you,
 and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her; untie them
 and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, just say this, 
“The Lord needs them.” And he will send them immediately.’ This took
 place to fulfil what had been spoken through the prophet, saying, 
‘Tell the daughter of Zion,
Look, your king is coming to you,
   humble, and mounted on a donkey,
     and on a colt, the foal of a donkey.’ 
The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them; they

 brought the donkey and the colt, and put their cloaks on them, and he sat 
on them. A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others 
cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. The crowds that 
went ahead of him and that followed were shouting,
‘Hosanna to the Son of David!
   Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!
Hosanna in the highest heaven!’ 
When he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was in turmoil, asking,

 ‘Who is this?’ The crowds were saying, ‘This is the prophet Jesus from 
Nazareth in Galilee.’
