Matthew 21:1-17

Rotherham(i) 1 And, when they drew near unto Jerusalem, and came unto Bethphage, unto the Mount of Olives, then, Jesus sent forth two disciples; 2 saying unto them—Be going into the village that is over against you, and, straightway, ye shall find an ass, bound, and a colt with her,—loose them, and lead them unto me. 3 And, if anyone, unto you, say aught, ye shall say—Their Lord, hath, need,—and, straightway, he will send them. 4 But, this, hath come to pass, that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken through the prophet, saying: 5 Tell ye the daughter of Zion, Lo! thy King, is coming unto thee, meek and mounted upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of a toiling ass. 6 And the disciples, went, and did as Jesus directed them; 7 and led the ass and the colt, and laid upon them their garments, and he took his seat upon them. 8 And, the chief multitude, spread their own mantles in the way, and, others, were cutting off young branches from the trees, and spreading them in the way; 9 and the multitudes, they who were going before him and they who were following after, were crying aloud, saying—Hosanna! to the Son of David, Blessed is he that is coming in the name of the Lord, Hosanna in the highest. 10 And, when he entered into Jerusalem, all the city was startled, saying—Who is this? 11 And, the multitudes, were saying—This, is the prophet Jesus,—He from Nazareth of Galilee. 12 And Jesus entered into the temple, and cast out all who were selling and buying in the temple,—and, the tables of the money-changers, he overthrew, and the seats of them who were selling doves; 13 and saith unto them—It is written, My house, a house of prayer, shall be called; but, ye, are making it, A den of robbers! 14 And there came unto him blind and lame, in the temple, and he cured them. 15 But the Chief-priests and the Scribes, seeing, the marvels that he wrought, and the boys who were crying aloud in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David! were greatly displeased; 16 and said unto him—Hearest thou what these are saying? And, Jesus, saith unto them—Yea: Have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings, hast thou prepared praise? 17 And, leaving them behind, he went forth outside the city into Bethany, and spent the night there.
