Luke 19:1-7 NCV

1 Jesus was going through the city of Jericho.
2 A man was there named Zacchaeus, who was a very important tax collector, and he was wealthy.
3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but he was not able because he was too short to see above the crowd.
4 He ran ahead to a place where Jesus would come, and he climbed a sycamore tree so he could see him.
5 When Jesus came to that place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down! I must stay at your house today."
6 Zacchaeus came down quickly and welcomed him gladly.
7 All the people saw this and began to complain, "Jesus is staying with a sinner!"
