A Day, A Deliverer, and the World's Happiest Donkey
|Luke 19 (NKJV™)|
|28||When He had said this, He went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.|
|29||And it came to pass, when He came near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mountain called Olivet, that He sent two of His disciples,|
|30||saying, "Go into the village opposite you, where as you enter you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever sat. Loose it and bring it here.|
|31||"And if anyone asks you, 'Why are you loosing it?' thus you shall say to him, 'Because the Lord has need of it.'"|
|32||So those who were sent went their way and found it just as He had said to them.|
|33||But as they were loosing the colt, the owners of it said to them, "Why are you loosing the colt?"|
|34||And they said, "The Lord has need of him."|
|35||Then they brought him to Jesus. And they threw their own clothes on the colt, and they set Jesus on him.|
|36||And as He went, many spread their clothes on the road.|
|37||Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen,|
|38||saying: "'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!' Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"|
|39||And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples."|
|40||But He answered and said to them, "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out."|
|41||Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it,|
|42||saying, "If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.|
|43||"For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side,|
|44||"and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation."|
