Bible: Luke 19:29-44

19:29 Now 1  when he approached Bethphage 2  and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, 3  he sent two of the disciples, 19:30 telling them, 4  “Go to the village ahead of you. 5  When 6  you enter it, you will find a colt tied there that has never been ridden. 7  Untie it and bring it here. 19:31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ just say, ‘The Lord needs 8  it.’ 19:32 So those who were sent ahead found 9  it exactly 10  as he had told them. 19:33 As 11  they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, 12 Why are you untying that colt? 19:34 They replied, “The Lord needs it.” 19:35 Then 13  they brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks 14  on the colt, 15  and had Jesus get on 16  it. 19:36 As 17  he rode along, they 18  spread their cloaks on the road. 19:37 As he approached the road leading down from 19  the Mount of Olives, 20  the whole crowd of his 21  disciples began to rejoice 22  and praise 23  God with a loud voice for all the mighty works 24  they had seen: 25  19:38 Blessed is the king 26  who comes in the name of the Lord! 27  Peace in heaven and glory in the highest! 19:39 But 28  some of the Pharisees 29  in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” 30  19:40 He answered, 31 I tell you, if they 32  keep silent, the very stones 33  will cry out!

Jesus Weeps for Jerusalem under Judgment

19:41 Now 34  when Jesus 35  approached 36  and saw the city, he wept over it, 19:42 saying, “If you had only known on this day, 37  even you, the things that make for peace! 38  But now they are hidden 39  from your eyes. 19:43 For the days will come upon you when your enemies will build 40  an embankment 41  against you and surround you and close in on you from every side. 19:44 They will demolish you 42 you and your children within your walls 43  – and they will not leave within you one stone 44  on top of another, 45  because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God.” 46
