Matthew 21:4-5. Approaching King 5 Sep 2023

Mat 21:4 This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet:
5 Say to the daughter of Zion:
Look, your king is approaching,
humble and riding on a donkey
and on a colt,
the foal of a beast of burden.

Zec 9:9 Rejoice heart and soul, daughter of Zion!
Shout for joy, daughter of Jerusalem!
Look, your king is approaching,
he is vindicated and victorious,
humble and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
10 He will banish chariots from Ephraim
and horses from Jerusalem;
the bow of war will be banished.
He will proclaim peace to the nations,
his empire will stretch from sea to sea,
from the River to the limits of the earth.
11 As for you, because of the blood of your covenant
I have released your prisoners
from the pit in which there is no water.
12 Come back to the fortress, you prisoners waiting in hope.
This very day, I vow, I shall make it up to you twice over.
13 For I have strung Judah as a bow for myself,
laid Ephraim on the string as an arrow,
have roused your sons, Zion,
against your sons, Javan,
and have made you like a warrior's sword.
14 Then Yahweh will appear above them
and his arrow will flash out like lightning.
(The Lord) Yahweh will sound the trumpet
and advance in the storm-winds of the south.
15 Yahweh Sabaoth will protect them!
They will devour,
will trample on the sling-stones,
they will drink blood like wine,
awash like bowls, like the corners of the altar.
16 Yahweh their God will give them victory when that day comes,
like the sheep who are his people;
yes, the stones of a diadem will sparkle over his country.
17 How fine, how splendid that will be,
with wheat to make the young men flourish,
and new wine the maidens!


Jesus, teach us about the donkey and the colt. I like to understand better.
