Hosanna to the Son of David

Pueri Hebræorum, portantes ramos olivarum, obviaverunt Dominus, clamantes et dicentes: Hosanna in excelsis.

Pueri Hebræorum vestimenta prosternebant in via et clamabant dicentes: Hosanna Filio David, benedictus qui venit in nomini Domini

The Hebrew children bearing olive branches, went forth to meet the Lord, crying out, and saying, Hosanna in the highest.

The Hebrew children spread their garments in the way, and cried out, saying: Hosanna to the Son of God: blessed is He that cometh in the Name of the Lord.

And the chief priests and scribes, seeing the wonderful things that [Jesus] did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying: Hosanna to the son of David; were moved with indignation. (Matthew 21;15)

The chief priests therefore, and the Pharisees, gathered a council, and said: What do we, for this man doth many miracles? If we let him alone so, all will believe in him (John 11;47-48)

Jesus of Nazareth ... practiced sorcery, incited and led Israel astray ... (Babylonian Talmud, Sanhedrin 43a)
