Jesus and Zacchaeus

Luke 19

1 Then Jesus entered and passed through a Jericho. 2 Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. 3 And he sought to b see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up 1 and saw him, and said to him, "Zacchaeus, 2 make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house." 6 So he 3 made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. 7 But when they saw it, they all 4 complained, saying, c "He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner." 8 Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the d poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by e false accusation, f I restore fourfold." 9 And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because g he also is h a son of Abraham; 10 i "for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost."
