19:1And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

19:2And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.

19:3And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.

19:4And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

19:5And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.

19:6And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

19:7And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

19:8And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

19:9And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.

19:10For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
