Luke 19:37-44

37

Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen,

38

saying: ” ‘Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the LORD!’ Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”

39

And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.”

40

But He answered and said to them, “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.”

41

Now as He drew near, He saw the city and wept over it,

42

saying, “If you had known, even you, especially in this your day, the things that make for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes.

43

For days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment around you, surround you and close you in on every side,

44

and level you, and your children within you, to the ground; and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not know the time of your visitation.
