12 kThe next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, 13 took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out:
l‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’
The King of Israel!”
14 mThen Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written:
15 “Fear nnot, daughter of Zion;
Behold, your King is coming,
Sitting on a donkey’s colt.”
17 Therefore the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of his tomb and raised him from the dead, bore witness. 18 rFor this reason the people also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign. 19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, s“You see that you are accomplishing nothing. Look, the world has gone after Him!”
20 Now there twere certain Greeks among those uwho came up to worship at the feast. 21 Then they came to Philip, vwho was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.”
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
