CEB 1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through town. NIV 1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. CEB 2 A man there named Zacchaeus, a ruler among tax collectors, was rich. NIV 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. CEB 3 He was trying to see who Jesus was, but, being a short man, he couldn't because of the crowd. NIV 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. CEB 4 So he ran ahead and climbed up a sycamore tree so he could see Jesus, who was about to pass that way. NIV 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way. CEB 5 When Jesus came to that spot, he looked up and said, "Zacchaeus, come down at once. I must stay in your home today." NIV 5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today." CEB 6 So Zacchaeus came down at once, happy to welcome Jesus. NIV 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. CEB 7 Everyone who saw this grumbled, saying, "He has gone to be the guest of a sinner." NIV 7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, "He has gone to be the guest of a 'sinner.' " CEB 8 Zacchaeus stopped and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord, I give half of my possessions to the poor. And if I have cheated anyone, I repay them four times as much." NIV 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." CEB 9 Jesus said to him, "Today, salvation has come to this household because he too is a son of Abraham. NIV 9 Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. CEB 10 The Human One came to seek and save the lost." NIV 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." CEB 11 As they listened to this, Jesus told them another parable because he was near Jerusalem and they thought God's kingdom would appear right away. NIV 11 While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once. CEB 12 He said, “A certain man who was born into royalty went to a distant land to receive his kingdom and then return. NIV 12 He said: "A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return. CEB 13 He called together ten servants and gave each of them money worth four months' wages. He said, ‘Do business with this until I return.' NIV 13 So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. 'Put this money to work,' he said, 'until I come back.' CEB 14 His citizens hated him, so they sent a representative after him who said, ‘We don't want this man to be our king.' NIV 14 "But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, 'We don't want this man to be our king.' CEB 15 After receiving his kingdom, he returned and called the servants to whom he had given the money to find out how much they had earned. NIV 15 "He was made king, however, and returned home. Then he sent for the servants to whom he had given the money, in order to find out what they had gained with it. CEB 16 The first servant came forward and said, ‘Your money has earned a return of one thousand percent.' NIV 16 "The first one came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned ten more.' CEB 17 The king replied, ‘Excellent! You are a good servant. Because you have been faithful in a small matter, you will have authority over ten cities.' NIV 17 " 'Well done, my good servant!' his master replied. 'Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.' CEB 18 “The second servant came and said, ‘Master, your money has made a return of five hundred percent.' NIV 18 "The second came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned five more.' CEB 19 To this one, the king said, ‘You will have authority over five cities.' NIV 19 "His master answered, 'You take charge of five cities.' CEB 20 “Another servant came and said, ‘Master, here is your money. I wrapped it up in a scarf for safekeeping. NIV 20 "Then another servant came and said, 'Sir, here is your mina; I have kept it laid away in a piece of cloth. CEB 21 I was afraid of you because you are a stern man. You withdraw what you haven't deposited and you harvest what you haven't planted.' NIV 21 I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. You take out what you did not put in and reap what you did not sow.' CEB 22 The king replied, ‘I will judge you by the words of your own mouth, you worthless servant! You knew, did you, that I'm a stern man, withdrawing what I didn't deposit, and harvesting what I didn't plant? NIV 22 "His master replied, 'I will judge you by your own words, you wicked servant! You knew, did you, that I am a hard man, taking out what I did not put in, and reaping what I did not sow? CEB 23 Why then didn't you put my money in the bank? Then when I arrived, at least I could have gotten it back with interest.' NIV 23 Why then didn't you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?' CEB 24 "He said to his attendants, ‘Take his money and give it to the one who has ten times as much.' NIV 24 "Then he said to those standing by, 'Take his mina away from him and give it to the one who has ten minas.' CEB 25 ‘But Master,' they said, ‘he already has ten times as much!' NIV 25 " 'Sir,' they said, 'he already has ten!' CEB 26 He replied, ‘I say to you that everyone who has will be given more, but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away. NIV 26 "He replied, 'I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but as for the one who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away. CEB 27 As for my enemies who don't want me as their king, bring them here and slaughter them before me.'" NIV 27 But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them--bring them here and kill them in front of me.' " CEB 28 After Jesus said this, he continued on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. NIV 28 After Jesus had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. CEB 29 As Jesus came to Bethphage and Bethany on the Mount of Olives, he gave two disciples a task. NIV 29 As he approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, saying to them, CEB 30 He said, "Go into the village over there. When you enter it, you will find tied up there a colt that no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. NIV 30 "Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. CEB 31 If someone asks, ‘Why are you untying it?' just say, ‘Its master needs it.'" NIV 31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it.' " CEB 32 Those who had been sent found it exactly as he had said. NIV 32 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them. CEB 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?" NIV 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?" CEB 34 They replied, "Its master needs it." NIV 34 They replied, "The Lord needs it." CEB 35 They brought it to Jesus, threw their clothes on the colt, and lifted Jesus onto it.

Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heavens." NIV 38 "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" CEB 39 Some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, scold your disciples! Tell them to stop!"

NIV 40 "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out." CEB 41 As Jesus came to the city and observed it, he wept over it. NIV 41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it CEB 42 He said, "If only you knew on this of all days the things that lead to peace. But now they are hidden from your eyes. NIV 42 and said, "If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace--but now it is hidden from your eyes. CEB 43 The time will come when your enemies will build fortifications around you, encircle you, and attack you from all sides. NIV 43 The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. CEB 44 They will crush you completely, you and the people within you. They won't leave one stone on top of another within you, because you didn't recognize the time of your gracious visit from God." NIV 44 They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God's coming to you."

NIV 48 Yet they could not find any way to do it, because all the people hung on his words.
