John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 21:9

The multitudes cried, saying — Probably from a Divine impulse; for certainly most of them understood not the words they uttered. Hosanna — (Lord save us) was a solemn word in frequent use among the Jews. The meaning is, "We sing hosanna to the Son of David. Blessed is he, the Messiah, of the Lord. Save. Thou that art in the highest heavens." Our Lord restrained all public tokens of honour from the people till now, lest the envy of his enemies should interrupt his preaching before the time . But this reason now ceasing, he suffered their acclamations, that they might be a public testimony against their wickedness, who in four or five days after cried out, Crucify him, crucify him. The expressions recorded by the other evangelists are somewhat different from these: but all of them were undoubtedly used by some or others of the multitude.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 21:9

And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, (e) Hosanna to the Son of David: (f) Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest.

(e) This was an ancient kind of cry, which they voiced in the feast of Tabernacles, when they carried boughs according as God commanded; (Leviticus 23:40). And the word is corruptly made of two, for we should say, "Hoshiang-na", which is as much as to say, "Save I pray thee".

(f) Well is it to him that comes in the Name of the Lord, that is to say, whom the Lord has given us for our King.
