7牵了 驴 和 驴驹 来,把自己的 衣服 搭 在上面 ,耶稣就骑上 。
7And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon.
7 Verse 7. And put on them their clothes] Thus acknowledging him

to be their king, for this was a custom observed by the people

when they found that God had appointed a man to the kingdom. When

Jehu sat with the captains of the army, and Elisha the prophet

came, by the order of God, to anoint him king over Israel, as soon

as he came out of the inner chamber into which the prophet had

taken him to anoint him, and they knew what was done, every man

took his garment, and spread it under him on the top of the steps,

and blew the trumpets, saying, "Jehu is king." 2Ki 9:13.



And they set him thereon.] καιεπεκαθισενεπανωαυτων, and

he sat upon them; but instead of επανωαυτων, upon THEM, the

Codex Bezae, seven copies of the Itala, some copies of the

Vulgate, and some others, read επαυτον, upon him, i.e. the

colt. This is most likely to be the true reading; for we can

scarcely suppose that he rode upon both by turns,-this would appear

childish; or that he rode upon both at once, for this would be

absurd. Some say he sat on both; for "the ass that was tied up

was an emblem of the Jews bound under the yoke of the law; and the

colt that had not been tied represented the Gentiles who were

not under the law; and that Jesus Christ's sitting on both

represented his subjecting the Jews and the Gentiles to the sway

of his evangelical sceptre." He who can receive this saying, let

him receive it.
