14th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A: 1st Reading

Zechariah 9:9-10

Thus says the LORD:
   Rejoice heartily, O daughter Zion,
      shout for joy, O daughter Jerusalem!
   See, your king shall come to you;
      a just savior is he,
   meek, and riding on an ass,
      on a colt, the foal of an ass.
   He shall banish the chariot from Ephraim,
      and the horse from Jerusalem;
   the warrior’s bow shall be banished,
      and he shall proclaim peace to the nations.
   His dominion shall be from sea to sea,
      and from the River to the ends of the earth.
