"From the crest of Olivet, Jesus looked upon Jerusalem. Fair and 
peaceful was the scene spread out before Him. It was the season of the 
Passover, and from all lands the children of Jacob had gathered there to 
celebrate the great national festival. In the midst of gardens and 
vineyards, and green slopes studded with pilgrimsí tents, rose the 
terraced hills, the stately palaces, and massive bulwarks of Israelís 
capital. The daughter of Zion seemed in her pride to say, "I sit a 
queen, and shall see no sorrow;" as lovely then, and deeming herself as 
secure in Heavenís favor, as when, ages before, the royal minstrel sang, 
"Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is Mount Zion," 
"the city of the great King." Psalm 48:2. In full view were the 
magnificent buildings of the temple. The rays of the setting sun lighted 
up the snowy whiteness of its marble walls, and gleamed from golden gate 
and tower and pinnacle. "The perfection of beauty" it stood, the pride 
of the Jewish nation. What child of Israel could gaze upon the scene 
without a thrill of joy and admiration! But far other thoughts occupied 
the mind of Jesus. "When He was come near, He beheld the city, and wept 
over it." Luke 19:41. Amid the universal rejoicing of the triumphal 
entry, while palm branches waved, while glad hosannas awoke the echoes 
of the hills, and thousands of voices declared Him king, the worldís 
Redeemer was overwhelmed with a sudden and mysterious sorrow. He, the 
Son of God, the Promised One of Israel, whose power had conquered death, 
and called its captives from the grave, was in tears, not of ordinary 
grief, but of intense, irrepressible agony."
