New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
1 He entered Jericho and was passing through it. 1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through.
2 A man was there named Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was rich. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.
3 He was trying to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short 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 ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, because he was going to pass 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, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today." 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 hurried down and was happy to welcome him. 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.
7 All who saw it began to grumble and said, "He has gone to be the guest of one 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 Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, "Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor; and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay 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 Then 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 came to seek out and to save the lost." 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."
