Luke 19:28-48 New American Standard Bible

The Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem

28  After He had said these things , He was going on ahead , going up to Jerusalem . 29  When He approached Bethphage and Bethany , near the mount that is called Olivet , He sent two of the disciples , 30  saying , "Go into the village ahead of you; there , as you enter , you will find a colt tied on which no one e yet has ever sat ; untie it and bring it here. 31  "If anyone asks you, 'Why e are you untying it?' you shall say , 'The Lord has need of it.' " 32  So those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them. 33  As they were untying the colt , its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt ?" 34  They said , "The Lord has need of it." 35  They brought it to Jesus , and they threw their coats on the colt and put Jesus on it. 36  As He was going , they were spreading their coats on the road . 37  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 , 38  shouting : " BLESSED IS THE KING WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE Lord ; Peace in heaven and glory in the highest !" 39  Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Him, "Teacher , rebuke Your disciples ." 40  But Jesus answered , "I tell you, if these become silent , the stones will cry out!"

41  When He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it, 42  saying , "If you had known in this day , even you, the things which make for peace ! But now they have been hidden from your eyes . 43  "For the days will come upon you when your enemies will throw up a barricade against you, and surround you and hem you in on every side , 44  and they will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another , because e you did not recognize the time of your visitation ."

The Cleansing of the Temple

45  Jesus entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling , 46  saying to them, "It is written , ' AND MY HOUSE SHALL BE A HOUSE OF PRAYER ,' but you have made it a ROBBERS' DEN ." 47  And He was teaching daily e in the temple ; but the chief priests and the scribes and the leading men among the people were trying to destroy Him, 48  and they could not find anything that they might do , for all the people were hanging on to every word He said.
