New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 He entered Jericho and was passing through. 1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through.
2 And there was a man called by the name of Zaccheus; he was a chief tax collector and he was rich. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.
3 Zaccheus was trying to see who Jesus was, and was unable because of the crowd, for he was small in stature. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd.
4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about to pass through that way. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.
5 When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, "Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house." 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 And he hurried and came down and received Him gladly. 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.
7 When they saw it, they all began to grumble, saying, "He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a sinner." 7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, "He has gone to be the guest of a 'sinner.' "
8 Zaccheus stopped and said to the Lord , "Behold, Lord , half of my possessions I will give to the poor, and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will give back four times as much." 8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount."
9 And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he, too, is a son of Abraham. 9 Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.
10 "For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost." 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."
