Lord, Look! See Our Savior, Gift of Spiritual Sight — Matthew 20, Zechariah 9, Isaiah 62

Jesus, Touch the Apples and Heal Our Eyes! – Zechariah 2:8

He is humble, riding on a donkey—

    riding on a donkey’s colt.’”[b]

Matthew 20:29-21:22 NLT

Jesus Heals Two Blind Men

29 As Jesus and the disciples left the town of Jericho, a large crowd followed behind. 30 Two blind men were sitting beside the road. When they heard that Jesus was coming that way, they began shouting, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

31 “Be quiet!” the crowd yelled at them.

But they only shouted louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

32 When Jesus heard them, he stopped and called, “What do you want me to do for you?”

33 “Lord,” they said, “we want to see!”

34 Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Instantly they could see! Then they followed him.

Matthew 21:33-34
The Coming of Zion’s King

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
    Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
    righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

— Zechariah 9:9
Zion’s New Name

11 The Lord has made proclamation
    to the ends of the earth:
“Say to Daughter Zion,
    ‘See, your Savior comes!
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense accompanies him.’”

Isaiah 62:11  NIV

God Gives a King’s Heart: Gold Crown — Psalm 21 #1

Psalm 21

1 How the king rejoices in your strength, O LORD!
He shouts with joy because you give him victory.
2 For you have given him his heart’s desire;
you have withheld nothing he requested.

3 You welcomed him back with success and prosperity.
You placed a crown of finest gold on his head.

Psalm 21:3
