Behold! Hosanna!

… Look up, stand tall and lift up your heads(gates of praise), because your redemption (deliverance) is drawing near. -Lk 21:28

Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in. -Ps 24:7

Hosanna! Hosanna in the highest! -Jn 12:13
Lift up your heads
Lift up your eyes and see
The King of kings coming in glory
Rejoice greatly, stand up and shout in triumph
O daughter of Zion.

Lift up your heads
O daughter of Zion and see
The coming King of glory
He is righteous and victorious
Endowed with salvation.
-Zec 9:9

Behold! Your King is coming to you!
Hosanna! Hosanna in the highest!

Stand up{arise} and bless the LORD your God
Forever and ever{from everlasting to everlasting}!
“Blessed be Your glorious name, which is exalted above
ALL blessing and praise!”
-Neh 9:5

You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance{garlands of hosannas}. Selah. -Ps 32:7

Word Study

From NetBible Jn 12:13

  • hosanna[5614] =
    From [03467] = to be liberated, saved, delivered, victorious
    and [04994] = we pray now please
  • The expression ῾Ωσαννά (Jwsanna, literally in Hebrew, “O Lord, save”) in the quotation from Ps 118:25-26 was probably by this time a familiar liturgical expression of praise, on the order of “Hail to the king,” although both the underlying Aramaic and Hebrew expressions meant “O Lord, save us.” As in Mark 11:9 the introductory ὡσαννά is followed by the words of Ps 118:25, εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου (euloghmeno” Jo ercomeno” en onomati kuriou), although in the Fourth Gospel the author adds for good measure καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ (kai Jo basileu” tou Israhl). In words familiar to every Jew, the author is indicating that at this point every messianic expectation is now at the point of realization. It is clear from the words of the psalm shouted by the crowd that Jesus is being proclaimed as messianic king. See E. Lohse, TDNT9:682-84.* Hosannais an Aramaic expression that literally means, “help, I pray,” or “save, I pray.” By Jesus’ time it had become a strictly liturgical formula of praise, however, and was used as an exclamation of praise to God.* A quotation from Ps 118:25-26.

From NetBible Lk 21:28

  • look up[352] = to raise or lift one’s self{body/soul} up
  • redemption[629] = deliverance, liberation procured by the payment of a ransom

From NetBible Ps 24:7

  • lift up[05375] = rise up, look up
  • gates[08179] = entrances, doors, openings, court of tabernacle
  • glory[03519] = honor, splendor, majesty, weighty

From NetBible Isa 60:18
… you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise.

    • walls[02346] = fortified walls, walls of protection
    • salvation[03444] = deliverance, victory
    • gates[08179] = entrances, doors, openings, court of tabernacle
    • praise[08416] = song or hymn of adoration, thanksgiving

From NetBible Zec 9:9

  • shout[07321] = loud shout for joy in triumph
  • righteous[06662] = just, lawful
  • salvation[03467] = to be liberated, saved, delivered, victorious
  • The NT understands this verse to be a prophecy of the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, and properly so (cf. Matt 21:5; John 12:15), but reference to the universal rule of the king in v. 10 reveals that this is a “split prophecy,” that is, it has a two-stage fulfillment. Verse 9 was fulfilled in Jesus’ earthly ministry but v. 10 awaits a millennial consummation (cf. Rev 19:11-16).
