5 And certain of them that stood there said unto themWhat doyeloosing the colt
6 And they said unto them even as Jesus had commandedand theylet them go.
7 And they brought the colt to Jesusand cast their garments onhimand he sat upon him.
8 And many spread their garments in the wayand others cut downbranches off the treesand strawed them in the way.
