Luke 19

NLT 1 Jesus entered Jericho and made his way through the town. NIV 1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. NLT 2 There was a man there named Zacchaeus. He was the chief tax collector in the region, and he had become very rich. NIV 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. NLT 3 He tried to get a look at Jesus, but he was too short to see over the crowd. NIV 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. NLT 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree beside the road, for Jesus was going 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. NLT 5 When Jesus came by, he looked up at Zacchaeus and called him by name. “Zacchaeus!” he said. “Quick, come down! I must be a guest 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." NLT 6 Zacchaeus quickly climbed down and took Jesus to his house in great excitement and joy. NIV 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. NLT 7 But the people were displeased. “He has gone to be the guest of a notorious sinner,” they grumbled. NIV 7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, "He has gone to be the guest of a 'sinner.' " NLT 8 Meanwhile, Zacchaeus stood before the Lord and said, “I will give half my wealth to the poor, Lord, and if I have cheated people on their taxes, I will give them back 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." NLT 9 Jesus responded, “Salvation has come to this home today, for this man has shown himself to be a true 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. NLT 10 For the Son of Man19:10 “Son of Man” is a title Jesus used for himself. came to seek and save those who are lost.” NIV 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." NLT 11 The crowd was listening to everything Jesus said. And because he was nearing Jerusalem, he told them a story to correct the impression that the Kingdom of God would begin 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. NLT 12 He said, “A nobleman was called away to a distant empire to be crowned king 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. NLT 13 Before he left, he called together ten of his servants and divided among them ten pounds of silver,19:13 Greek ten minas; one mina was worth about three months’ wages. saying, ‘Invest this for me while I am gone.’ 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.' NLT 14 But his people hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, ‘We do not want him 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.' NLT 15 “After he was crowned king, he returned and called in the servants to whom he had given the money. He wanted to find out what their profits were. 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. NLT 16 The first servant reported, ‘Master, I invested your money and made ten times the original amount!’ NIV 16 "The first one came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned ten more.' NLT 17 “‘Well done!’ the king exclaimed. ‘You are a good servant. You have been faithful with the little I entrusted to you, so you will be governor of ten cities as your reward.’ 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.' NLT 18 “The next servant reported, ‘Master, I invested your money and made five times the original amount.’ NIV 18 "The second came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned five more.' NLT 19 “‘Well done!’ the king said. ‘You will be governor over five cities.’ NIV 19 "His master answered, 'You take charge of five cities.' NLT 20 “But the third servant brought back only the original amount of money and said, ‘Master, I hid your money and kept it safe. NIV 20 "Then another servant came and said, 'Sir, here is your mina; I have kept it laid away in a piece of cloth. NLT 21 I was afraid because you are a hard man to deal with, taking what isn’t yours and harvesting crops you didn’t plant.’ 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.' NLT 22 “‘You wicked servant!’ the king roared. ‘Your own words condemn you. If you knew that I’m a hard man who takes what isn’t mine and harvests crops 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? NLT 23 why didn’t you deposit my money in the bank? At least I could have gotten some interest on it.’ 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?' NLT 24 “Then, turning to the others standing nearby, the king ordered, ‘Take the money from this servant, and give it to the one who has ten pounds.’ 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.' NLT 25 “‘But, master,’ they said, ‘he already has ten pounds!’ NIV 25 " 'Sir,' they said, 'he already has ten!' NLT 26 “‘Yes,’ the king replied, ‘and to those who use well what they are given, even more will be given. But from those who do nothing, even what little 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. NLT 27 And as for these enemies of mine who didn’t want me to be their king—bring them in and execute them right here in front of 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.' " NLT 28 After telling this story, Jesus went on toward Jerusalem, walking ahead of his disciples. NIV 28 After Jesus had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. NLT 29 As he came to the towns of Bethphage and Bethany on the Mount of Olives, he sent two disciples ahead. 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, NLT 30 “Go into that village over there,” he told them. “As you enter it, you will see a young donkey tied there 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. NLT 31 If anyone asks, ‘Why are you untying that colt?’ just say, ‘The Lord needs it.’” NIV 31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it.' " NLT 32 So they went and found the colt, just as Jesus had said. NIV 32 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them. NLT 33 And sure enough, as they were untying it, the owners asked them, “Why are you untying that colt?” NIV 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?" NLT 34 And the disciples simply replied, “The Lord needs it.” NIV 34 They replied, "The Lord needs it." NLT 35 So they brought the colt to Jesus and threw their garments over it for him to ride on. NIV 35 They brought it to Jesus, threw their cloaks on the colt and put Jesus on it. NLT 36 As he rode along, the crowds spread out their garments on the road ahead of him. NIV 36 As he went along, people spread their cloaks on the road. NLT 37 When he reached the place where the road started down the Mount of Olives, all of his followers began to shout and sing as they walked along, praising God for all the wonderful miracles they had seen. NIV 37 When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: NLT 38 “Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the LORD ! Peace in heaven, and glory in highest heaven!” NIV 38 "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!" "Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" NLT 39 But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!” NIV 39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!" NLT 40 He replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!” NIV 40 "I tell you," he replied, "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out." NLT 41 But as he came closer to Jerusalem and saw the city ahead, he began to weep. NIV 41 As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it NLT 42 “How I wish today that you of all people would understand the way to peace. But now it is too late, and peace is 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. NLT 43 Before long your enemies will build ramparts against your walls and encircle you and close in on you from every side. 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. NLT 44 They will crush you into the ground, and your children with you. Your enemies will not leave a single stone in place, because you did not recognize it when God visited you.19:44 Greek did not recognize the time of your visitation, a reference to the Messiah’s coming.” 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." NLT 45 Then Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out the people selling animals for sacrifices. NIV 45 Then he entered the temple area and began driving out those who were selling. NLT 46 He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be a house of prayer,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves.”19:46 Isa 56:7; Jer 7:11. NIV 46 "It is written," he said to them, " 'My house will be a house of prayer'; but you have made it 'a den of robbers.' " NLT 47 After that, he taught daily in the Temple, but the leading priests, the teachers of religious law, and the other leaders of the people began planning how to kill him. NIV 47 Every day he was teaching at the temple. But the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the leaders among the people were trying to kill him. NLT 48 But they could think of nothing, because all the people hung on every word he said. NIV 48 Yet they could not find any way to do it, because all the people hung on his words.
