▪️ Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, your King comes unto you: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon a donkey, and upon a colt the foal of a donkey. - Zechariah 9:9
🛑 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion. Shout for joy, O daughter of Jerusalem.
Behold, your king comes to you, the just and the Savior,
and he is poor and riding upon an ass and upon a young colt.”
He is not satisfied to say “colt”; he adds “young” to emphasize humankind’s
rejuvenation in Christ and its unending, eternal youth and simplicity.
Our divine Tamer trains such young colts as we little ones.
Although the passage speaks of a young ass, it too is a colt. .
