And he entered and passed through Jericho.
And behold, [there was] a man by name called Zacchaeus, and he was chief tax-gatherer, and he a was rich.
And he sought to see Jesus who he was: b and he could not for the crowd, because he was little in stature.
And running on before, he got up into a sycamore that he might see him, for he was going to pass that [way].
And when he came up to the place, Jesus looked up and saw him, and said to him, Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for to-day I must remain in thy house.
And he made haste and came down, and received him with joy.
And all murmured when they saw [it], saying, He has turned in to lodge with a sinful man.
But Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor, and if I have taken anything from any man by false accusation, I return [him] fourfold.
And Jesus said to him, To-day salvation is come to this house, inasmuch as he also is a son of Abraham;
for the Son of man has come to seek and to save that which is lost.
