Hosanna, save, we beseech! The exclamation with which Christ was greeted at his last entry into Jerusalem. Matthew 21:9. It is a Hebrew phrase, known in earlier times and taken from Psalms 118:25, which was recited as a part of the Great Hallel, Psalms 113:1-9; Psalms 114:1-8; Psalms 115:1-18; Psalms 116:1-19; Psalms 117:1-2; Psalms 118:1-29, at the feast of tabernacles, and which was therefore familiar to the Jews.
