Luke 19:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig1 tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.2 5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today." 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. 7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, "He has gone to be the guest of a 'sinner.' "3 8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord,4 "Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything,5 I will pay back four times the amount."6 9 Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.7 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."8
