1He entered Jericho and was passing through.
And there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich.
And 2he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small of stature.
So he ran on ahead and climbed up into 3a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way.
And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for 4I must stay at your house today."
So he hurried and came down and 5received him joyfully.
And when they saw it, they all 6grumbled, "He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner."
And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, "Behold, Lord, the half of my goods 7I give to the poor. And if I have 8defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it 9fourfold."
And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, since 10he also is a son of Abraham.
For 11the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost."
