Bible Commentary for Matthew 21:6

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 21:6

21:5 The daughter of Sion - That is, the inhabitants of Jerusalem: the first words of the passage are cited from #Isa 62:11|; the rest from #Zech 9:9|. The ancient Jewish doctors were wont to apply these prophecies to the Messiah. On an ass - The Prince of Peace did not take a horse, a warlike animal. But he will ride on that by and by, #Rev 19:11|. In the patriarchal ages, illustrious persons thought it no disgrace to make use of this animal: but it by no means appears, that this opinion prevailed, or this custom continued, till the reign of Tiberias. Was it a mean attitude wherein our Lord then appeared? Mean even to contempt! I grant it: I glory in it: it is for the comfort of my soul for the honour of his humility, and for the utter confusion of all worldly pomp and grandeur.

21:7 They set him thereon - That is, on the clothes.

21:8 A great multitude spread their garments in the way - A custom which was usual at the creation of a king, #2Kings 9:13|.
