Matthew 21:4-5

4-5This is the full story of what was sketched earlier by the prophet:

Tell Zion's daughter,

"Look, your king's on his way,

poised and ready, mounted

On a donkey, on a colt,

foal of a pack animal."

6-9The disciples went and did exactly what Jesus told them to do. They led the donkey and colt out, laid some of their clothes on them, and Jesus mounted. Nearly all the people in the crowd threw their garments down on the road, giving him a royal welcome. Others cut branches from the trees and threw them down as a welcome mat. Crowds went ahead and crowds followed, all of them calling out, "Hosanna to David's son!" "Blessed is he who comes in God's name!" "Hosanna in highest heaven!"
