And David went up by the ascent of mount Olivet, and wept as he went up, and had his head covered, and he went barefoot: and all the people that was with him covered every man his head, and they went up, weeping as they went up.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

15:30 Mount Olivet. David wept as he ascended the Mount of Olives: a thousand years later, Jesus wept as He descended it unto Jerusalem (Luke 19:37,41). It was there He gave His great prophetic discourse (Matthew 24:3) and there He prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane (Mark 14:26,32). It was from the Mount of Olives that He ascended into heaven (Acts 1:10-12), and to the Mount of Olives that He will descend from heaven when He returns (Zechariah 14:1,4).
