Revised Standard Version (RSV) 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 named Zacchae'us; he was a chief tax collector, and rich. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.
3 And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not, on account of the crowd, because he was small of 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 to see him, for he was 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 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchae'us, make haste 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 made haste and came down, and received him joyfully. 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly.
7 And when they saw it they all murmured, "He has gone in 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 And Zacchae'us stood and said to the Lord, "Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have defrauded any one of anything, I restore it fourfold." 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, since he also 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 and to save the lost." 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."
