Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers(13) Took branches of palm trees.--Better, took branches of the palm trees. Literally, the Greek means "the palm branches of the palm trees." They were branches of the palms growing on the spot, or possibly such as were in general use at festivities. For the word rendered "branches," comp. 1 Maccabees 13:51 ("branches of palm trees"), and for that rendered "palm trees," comp. Revelation 7:9. Neither word occurs elsewhere in the New Testament. Again, the fuller Synoptic narrative includes but does not state this particular.Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.--The better reading is, Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord, and the King of Israel. These words of their cry are peculiar to St. John. The fullest report is St. Matthew's (see Note on John 12:9). That all the accounts differ is natural, and they have all preserved to us some distinctive acclamation with which the crowds welcomed Him whom they received as the Messiah. The 118th Psalm, from which these acclamations are taken (see John 12:25-26), was currently interpreted as Messianic, and formed part of the Hallel chanted at Tabernacles and Passover. (Comp. Note on John 7:37.) . . .
