Bible: Luke 19:1-10

Jesus and Zacchaeus

19:1 Jesus 1  entered Jericho 2  and was passing through it. 19:2 Now 3  a man named Zacchaeus was there; he was a chief tax collector 4  and was rich. 19:3 He 5  was trying to get a look at Jesus, 6  but being a short man he could not see over the crowd. 7  19:4 So 8  he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree 9  to see him, because Jesus 10  was going to pass that way. 19:5 And when Jesus came to that place, he looked up 11  and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down quickly, 12  because I must 13  stay at your house today.” 14  19:6 So he came down quickly 15  and welcomed Jesus 16  joyfully. 17  19:7 And when the people 18  saw it, they all complained, 19 He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 20  19:8 But Zacchaeus stopped and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, half of my possessions I now give 21  to the poor, and if 22  I have cheated anyone of anything, I am paying back four times as much! 19:9 Then 23  Jesus said to him, “Today salvation 24  has come to this household, 25  because he too is a son of Abraham! 26  19:10 For the Son of Man came 27  to seek and to save the lost.”
