Mark 11:7–10
7 καὶ φέρουσιν τὸν πῶλον πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν καὶ ἐπιβάλλουσιν αὐτῷ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτῶν, καὶ ἐκάθισεν ἐπʼ αὐτόν. 8 καὶ πολλοὶ τὰ ἱμάτια αὐτῶν ἔστρωσαν εἰς τὴν ὁδόν, ἄλλοι δὲ στιβάδας κόψαντες ἐκ τῶν ἀγρῶν. 9 καὶ οἱ προάγοντες καὶ οἱ ἀκολουθοῦντες ἔκραζον· Ὡσαννά· Εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου· 10 Εὐλογημένη ἡ ἐρχομένη βασιλεία τοῦ πατρὸς ἡμῶν Δαυίδ·
Ὡσαννὰ ἐν τοῖς ὑψίστοις.
My translation:
7 And they bring the colt to Jesus and they cast upon it their cloaks, and he sat upon it. 8 And many spread out their cloaks unto the road, and others leafy branches, having cut them out of the fields. 9 And those going ahead and those following were crying out, “Hosanna! Blessed is the one coming in the name of the Lord; 10 Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David; Hosanna in the highest places.”
Notes:
11:7
The two disciples (v. 1) is the unexpressed subject of the historical present φέρουσιν (from φέρω); τὸν πῶλον (“colt”; see note on v. 2) is the direct object. φέρω is modified by the spatial prepositional phrase πρὸς τὸν Ἰησοῦν.
ἐπιβάλλω (18x), from ἐπί + βάλλω, is “I throw upon”. The two disciples is the unexpressed subject of the historical present ἐπιβάλλουσιν. αὐτῷ, referring to the colt, is a locative dative, and τὰ ἱμάτια (“cloaks”, most translations) is the direct object of the verb.
Jesus is the unexpressed subject of the aorist ἐκάθισεν (from καθίζω). The verb is modified by the locative prepositional phrase ἐπʼ αὐτόν, referring to the colt.
11:8
στρωννύω (6x) is, “I spread”; the verb was often used of making a bed or furnishing a room. The substantival adjective πολλοὶ is the subject of the aorist ἔστρωσαν, and τὰ ἱμάτια (“cloaks”, most translations) is the direct object of the verb. στρωννύω is modified by the locative prepositional phrase εἰς τὴν ὁδόν.
The hapax legomenon ἡ στοιβάς refers to vegetation such as leaves, grass and straw gathered for stuffing into a mattress. BDAG: “leaves”, “leafy branches” (most translations); the image is of the creation of a ‘comfortable, “bed-like” path for Jesus and the colt’ (EGGNT). In this elliptical phrase, the accusative plural στιβάδας is the direct object of of another, implied ἔστρωσαν, of which the substantival adjective ἄλλοι (“others”) is the subject.
κόπτω (8x) is, “I cut, cut off”. The aorist participle κόψαντες is not attributive with στιβάδας, as it doesn’t match the noun’s gender (although HCSB translates it that way: “leafy branches cut from the fields”); it matches the gender of ἄλλοι, and thus adverbially modifies the implied verb ἔστρωσαν (temporal-antecedent): “leafy branches, having cut them out of the fields”. Most translations render it as a relative clause, e.g., “leafy branches that they had cut from the fields” (ESV). κόπτω is modified by the locative prepositional phrase ἐκ τῶν ἀγρῶν (lit. “out of the fields”).
11:9
προάγω (20x), from πρό + ἄγω, is “I go before, lead the way”. The substantival participles οἱ προάγοντες and οἱ ἀκολουθοῦντες are the compound subject of the imperfect ἔκραζον (from κράζω), which is probably iterative.
ὡσαννά (6x), “hosanna”, is the transliteration of the Aramaic/Hebrew term הושַׁע־נָא, which literally means, “Save now!”, a cry to God for help such as is found in the opening of Psalm 69 or in Psalm 118:25. The root verb yasha is also the root of the Hebrew name of Jesus (which means, “YHWH saves”). By NT times, ‘Hosanna apparently passed into more general use as a cultic shout of praise, like Hallelujah, with the element of entreaty largely forgotten’ (NIGTC), ‘a shout of praise’ or acclamation (BDAG), contra ICC, which insists that it is here to be regarded as a prayer.
The line which follows comes directly from Psalm 118:26 (117 LXX).
The perfect passive participle εὐλογημένος (from εὐλογέω, “I bless”, i.e., invoke God’s gracious favor) is the predicate of an implied present ἐστίν, or perhaps imperative ἔστω or optative εἴη (depending on whether the word here is meant to be a declaration or a petition). Perfect forms for εὐλογέω show no visible reduplication; the perfect passive participle is distinguishable from the present passive participle in that the latter uses the connecting vowel omicron, and would read εὐλογεόμενος (although no present passive participles of this verb occur in the NT).
The substantival present participle ὁ ἐρχόμενος (from ἔρχομαι; “he who comes”, “the one who comes”, most translations) is the subject of the implied form of εἰμί above. ἔρχομαι is modified by the locative (metaphorical) prepositional phrase ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου; ICC says this phrase indicates that the Messiah is to be ‘viceregent,’ ruling in YHWH’s stead.
11:10
The perfect passive feminine participle εὐλογημένη functions like εὐλογημένος in verse 9. The participle is the predicate of an implied form of εἰμί (see note on v. 9), and βασιλεία the subject. βασιλεία is modified by the attributive participle ἡ ἐρχομένη (from ἔρχομαι; “the coming kingdom”). The genitive τοῦ πατρὸς is subjective or descriptive. Δαυίδ (indeclinable, but here functioning as a genitive) is in apposition to πατρὸς ἡμῶν.
For the adjective ὕψιστος (13x), “highest, most high”, see note on 5:7. The articular adjective τοῖς ὑψίστοις is substantival, and refers to “the highest places”, i.e., the highest levels of the heavens where God sits. The locative prepositional phrase ἐν τοῖς ὑψίστοις modifying the declaration ὡσαννά thus would seem to be declaring where salvation comes from, or perhaps the place where praise is to be directed.

Message of the Day: Each Day is A Gracious Opportunity to Praise God and Be Joyful
Message of the Day: Each Day is A Gracious Opportunity to Praise God and Be Joyful
“This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24, NKJV) The psalmist is referring to a day which he did not expect to see. He was in danger of death; his days were likely to be cut off and ended, so that he should see no more. But God spared him, and added this joyous day to his life. It was so full of joy, so unexpected, so bright, so cheerful, that it…

1 Give thanks to the Lord,    for he is good;        his gracious love is eternal.
2 Let Israel now say,    “His gracious love is eternal.” 3 Let the house of Aaron now say,    “His gracious love is eternal.” 4 Let those who fear the Lord now say,    “His gracious love is eternal.”
5 I called on the Lord in my distress;    the Lord answered me openly. 6 The Lord is with me.    I will not be afraid.        What can people do to me? 7 With the Lord beside me as my helper,    I will triumph over those who hate me.
8 It is better to take shelter in the Lord    than to trust in people. 9 It is better to take shelter in the Lord    than to trust in princes.
10 All the nations surrounded me;    but in the name of the Lord I will defeat them. 11 They surrounded me, they are around me;    but in the name of the Lord I will defeat them. 12 They surrounded me like bees;    but they will be extinguished like burning thorns.        In the name of the Lord I will defeat them.
13 Indeed, you oppressed me so much that I nearly fell,    but the Lord helped me. 14 The Lord is my strength and protector,    for he has become my deliverer. 15 There’s exultation for deliverance in the tents of the righteous: “The right hand of the Lord is victorious! 16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted!        The right hand of the Lord is victorious!”
17 I will not die, but I will live    to recount the deeds of the Lord. 18 The Lord will discipline me severely,    but he won’t hand me over to die.
19 Open for me the righteous gates    so I may enter through them to give thanks to the Lord. 20 This is the Lord’s gate—    The righteous will enter through it.
21 I will praise you because you have answered me    and have become my deliverer. 22 The stone that the builders rejected    has become the cornerstone. 23 This is from the Lord—    it is awesome in our sight. 24 This is the day that the Lord has made;    let’s rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Please Lord, deliver us!    Please Lord, hurry and bring success now!
26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!    Let us bless you from the Lord’s house. 27 The Lord is God—he will be our light!    Bind the festival sacrifice with ropes        to the horn at the altar. 28 You are my God, and I will praise you;    my God, and I will exalt you. 29 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good    and his gracious love is eternal. — Psalm 118 | International Standard Version (ISV) The International Standard Version of the Holy Bible Copyright © 1995-2014 by ISV Foundation.

Psalm 118:1-2, 19-29 – Gratitude Changes Us
Thankfulness is a daily decision of faith to have the kind of attitude which pleases God and blesses others.
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;    his steadfast love endures forever! Let Israel say,    “His steadfast love endures forever….” Open to me the gates of righteousness,    that I may enter through them    and give thanks to the Lord.

by Jack Wellman | If you fail to plan, you can plan to fail, but even more so if your plans don’t include what you know to be God’s plan. I would rather follow God’s plan and not know what’s going to happen than follow my own plan and think I know because it’s likely to blow up in my face. Everything needs to start with prayer and seeking God’s will above our own...

Rebuild
We all fail.
It’s going to happen. It’s nothing special. It’s just part of being human.
What do you do after you fail?
That’s the part that counts. Because there are a lot of ways to respond to failure. Some of them are worthless. And some of them…
There are certain Bible verses that, for whatever reason, just stick with you.
“The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.
This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.”
Jesus quotes this in today’s Gospel. And it has stuck with me for a long time.
It’s one my go-to verses. Because it’s part of Psalm 118 (a powerhouse Psalm, for times of trouble and for everyday), because of its reality check, and because of its plan.
The reality check? That when we fail, we’re not done and over with. Not as far as God’s concerned.
If we let Him – if we trust ourselves to God and let God lead. God will take us in our failure (even the most personal form of failure – rejection) and rebuild. That’s the point of a cornerstone – it’s the foundation that you build on.
The plan? Even after we fail, God is still ready to rebuild. With us as the foundation, the cornerstone for the good work that He wants to do through our lives.
The critical part? The second line, “This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes.”
God’s rebuilding is marvelous to behold. A life transformed by God is literally awe-inspiring.
The thing is, it’s got to be the Lord’s doing. This isn’t something that you and I can do on our own. If we’re trying to rebuild after a failure by ourselves, we’re going to find ourselves back where we started in short order.
God’s rebuilding? It’s got to be God’s rebuilding. Not our rebuilding.
That starts with trusting the rebuilding to God. And that can take some courage. Because it means letting God lead.
It means giving up our illusions of control.
In order to receive something better than we could ever imagine.

Message of the Day: We Are Safe If God Is Our Friend!
Message of the Day: We Are Safe If God Is Our Friend!
“I called on the Lord in distress;The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.The Lord is on my side;I will not fear.What can man do to me?” (Psalm 118:5-6, NKJV) Originally this hymn was apparently sung by a combination of the temple singers, the congregation and the king, to mark some great national occasion such as a victory in battle. The scene is set in the temple, where the royal…
