All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without, in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.

And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye loosing the colt.

For this cause the people also met him, for that they heard that he had done this miracle.

The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing ? behold, the world is gone after him.
