Luke 19

CEB 1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through town. NRS 1 He entered Jericho and was passing through it. CEB 2 A man there named Zacchaeus, a ruler among tax collectors, was rich. NRS 2 A man was there named Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was rich. CEB 3 He was trying to see who Jesus was, but, being a short man, he couldn't because of the crowd. NRS 3 He was trying to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature. CEB 4 So he ran ahead and climbed up a sycamore tree so he could see Jesus, who was about to pass that way. NRS 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see him, because he was going to pass 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." NRS 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." CEB 6 So Zacchaeus came down at once, happy to welcome Jesus. NRS 6 So he hurried down and was happy to welcome him. CEB 7 Everyone who saw this grumbled, saying, "He has gone to be the guest of a sinner." NRS 7 All who saw it began to grumble and said, "He has gone to be the guest of one who is 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." NRS 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." CEB 9 Jesus said to him, "Today, salvation has come to this household because he too is a son of Abraham. NRS 9 Then Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham. CEB 10 The Human One came to seek and save the lost." NRS 10 For the Son of Man came to seek out and to save the 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. NRS 11 As they were listening to this, he went on to tell a parable, because he was near Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. CEB 12 He said, “A certain man who was born into royalty went to a distant land to receive his kingdom and then return. NRS 12 So he said, "A nobleman went to a distant country to get royal power for himself and then 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.' NRS 13 He summoned ten of his slaves, and gave them ten pounds, and said to them, "Do business with these 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.' NRS 14 But the citizens of his country hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, "We do not want this man to rule over us.' 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. NRS 15 When he returned, having received royal power, he ordered these slaves, to whom he had given the money, to be summoned so that he might find out what they had gained by trading. CEB 16 The first servant came forward and said, ‘Your money has earned a return of one thousand percent.' NRS 16 The first came forward and said, "Lord, your pound has made ten more pounds.' 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.' NRS 17 He said to him, "Well done, good slave! Because you have been trustworthy in a very small thing, take charge of ten cities.' CEB 18 “The second servant came and said, ‘Master, your money has made a return of five hundred percent.' NRS 18 Then the second came, saying, "Lord, your pound has made five pounds.' CEB 19 To this one, the king said, ‘You will have authority over five cities.' NRS 19 He said to him, "And you, rule over five cities.' CEB 20 “Another servant came and said, ‘Master, here is your money. I wrapped it up in a scarf for safekeeping. NRS 20 Then the other came, saying, "Lord, here is your pound. I wrapped it up 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.' NRS 21 for I was afraid of you, because you are a harsh man; you take what you did not deposit, 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? NRS 22 He said to him, "I will judge you by your own words, you wicked slave! You knew, did you, that I was a harsh man, taking what I did not deposit 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.' NRS 23 Why then did you not put my money into the bank? Then when I returned, 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.' NRS 24 He said to the bystanders, "Take the pound from him and give it to the one who has ten pounds.' CEB 25 ‘But Master,' they said, ‘he already has ten times as much!' NRS 25 (And they said to him, "Lord, he has ten pounds!') 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. NRS 26 "I tell you, to all those who have, more will be given; but from those who have nothing, even what they have 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.'" NRS 27 But as for these enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them—bring them here and slaughter them in my presence.' " CEB 28 After Jesus said this, he continued on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. NRS 28 After he 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. NRS 29 When he had come near Bethphage and Bethany, at the place called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of the disciples, 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. NRS 30 saying, "Go into the village ahead of you, and as you enter it you will find tied there a colt that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. CEB 31 If someone asks, ‘Why are you untying it?' just say, ‘Its master needs it.'" NRS 31 If anyone asks you, "Why are you untying it?' just say this, "The Lord needs it.' " CEB 32 Those who had been sent found it exactly as he had said. NRS 32 So those who were sent departed and found it as he had told them. CEB 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?" NRS 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." NRS 34 They said, "The Lord needs it." CEB 35 They brought it to Jesus, threw their clothes on the colt, and lifted Jesus onto it. NRS 35 Then they brought it to Jesus; and after throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. CEB 36 As Jesus rode along, they spread their clothes on the road. NRS 36 As he rode along, people kept spreading their cloaks on the road. CEB 37 As Jesus approached the road leading down from the Mount of Olives, the whole throng of his disciples began rejoicing. They praised God with a loud voice because of all the mighty things they had seen. NRS 37 As he was now approaching the path down from the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the deeds of power that they had seen, CEB 38 They said, "Blessings on the king who comes in the name of the Lord. Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heavens." NRS 38 saying, "Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!" CEB 39 Some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, scold your disciples! Tell them to stop!" NRS 39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, order your disciples to stop." CEB 40 He answered, "I tell you, if they were silent, the stones would shout." NRS 40 He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the stones would shout out." CEB 41 As Jesus came to the city and observed it, he wept over it. NRS 41 As he came near 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. NRS 42 saying, "If you, even you, had only recognized on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are 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. NRS 43 Indeed, the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up ramparts around you and surround 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." NRS 44 They will crush you to the ground, you and your children within you, and they will not leave within you one stone upon another; because you did not recognize the time of your visitation from God." CEB 45 When Jesus entered the temple, he threw out those who were selling things there. NRS 45 Then he entered the temple and began to drive out those who were selling things there; CEB 46 He said to them, "It's written, My house will be a house of prayer, but you have made it a hideout for crooks." NRS 46 and he said, "It is written, "My house shall be a house of prayer'; but you have made it a den of robbers." CEB 47 Jesus was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests, the legal experts, and the foremost leaders among the people were seeking to kill him. NRS 47 Every day he was teaching in the temple. The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people kept looking for a way to kill him; CEB 48 However, they couldn't find a way to do it because all the people were enthralled with what they heard. NRS 48 but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were spellbound by what they heard.
