Sep 9 The crowd having been with Jesus since he raised Lazarus from the dead, spread the news and many people came out. So the Pharisees said to one another, “We are getting nowhere. The whole world has gone after him.” When he came to the descent from Mount Olives, the entire procession began to shout with joyful praises for all the miracles they had seen, saying, “Blessed is the king who comes in the Lords name. Peace and glory in the highest heaven!” Some Pharisees there said, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”

Jesus replied, “If they become silent, the stones3 will cry out!” As he approached Jerusalem, he wept over it, saying, “If only you had known this day the things of peace now hidden from your sight! The time is coming when your enemies will rise up, surround and hem you in on all sides. They will destroy you and your children and wont leave one stone on top of another, because you didnt know this time when God visited you.”
