And immediately when the entire crowd saw him, they were very excited, and ran to him and greeted him. Bible other translations

“very excited.” For the definition “very excited,” see BDAG, and see the CEB. The people were excited to see Jesus because of what they had seen him do and his reputation. Although most versions read “amazed,” there is no particular reason that the crowd would be “amazed” here. Jesus was not doing any miracles at this time, he simply had come down from Mount Hermon.
