Matthew 21 : 1 - 17

Chapter 21

1Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples,
2saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me.
3And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, "The Lord has need of them,' and immediately he will send them."
4All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
5"Tell the daughter of Zion, "Behold, your King is coming to you, Lowly, and sitting on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey."'
6So the disciples went and did as Jesus commanded them.
7They brought the donkey and the colt, laid their clothes on them, and set Him on them.
8And a very great multitude spread their clothes on the road; others cut down branches from the trees and spread them on the road.
9Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: "Hosanna to the Son of David! "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' Hosanna in the highest!"
10And when He had come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, "Who is this?"
11So the multitudes said, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth of Galilee."
12Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.
13And He said to them, "It is written, "My house shall be called a house of prayer,' but you have made it a "den of thieves."'
14Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them.
15But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were indignant
16and said to Him, "Do You hear what these are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes. Have you never read, "Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise'?"
17Then He left them and went out of the city to Bethany, and He lodged there.
