When He approached Bethphage and Bethany, near the mount that is called Olivet, He sent two of the disciples, (Luke 19:29)

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. (Luke 19:30)

"If anyone asks you, `Why are you untying it?' you shall say, `The Lord has need of it.' " (Luke 19:31)

So those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them. (Luke 19:32)

As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?" (Luke 19:33)

They said, "The Lord has need of it." (Luke 19:34)

They brought it to Jesus, and they threw their coats on the colt and put Jesus on it. (Luke 19:35)

As He was going, they were spreading their coats on the road. (Luke 19:36)

As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles which they had seen, (Luke 19:37)

shouting: "BLESSED IS THE KING WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" (Luke 19:38)

Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples." (Luke 19:39)

But Jesus answered, "I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!" (Luke 19:40)
