The prophet Zechariah commanded the people by the Spirit of the Lord to:

"Rejoice greatly, o daughter of Zion! Shout, o daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King comes unto you:Righteous, and having salvation; meek, and riding a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey." --

Zechariah 9:9 (Prophecy given 487 B.C.)
