John 12:12-19 (Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition.)
12 And on the next day, a great multitude that was to come to the festival day, when they had heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem,
13 Took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried: Hosanna, blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord, the king of Israel.
14 And Jesus found a young ass, and sat upon it, as it is written:
15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy king cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.
16 These things his disciples did not know at the first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written of him, and that they had done these things to him.
17 The multitude therefore gave testimony, which was with him, when he called Lazarus out of the grave, and raised him from the dead.
18 For which reason also the people came to meet him, because they heard that he had done this miracle.
19 The Pharisees therefore said among themselves: Do you see that we prevail nothing? behold, the whole world is gone after him.
