Why do some translations have "in his triumphal procession" at the end of the verse as the REB, NJB and Lattimore (train) but others don't?

technically that was a google, followed by wikipedia. though i don't recall exactly, it is possible that i included 'wiki' in the google search; something i do when i know the wiki will have what i'm looking for.
