Luke 19

ESV 1 He entered Jericho and was passing through. MSG 1 Then Jesus entered and walked through Jericho. ESV 2 And there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. MSG 2 There was a man there, his name Zacchaeus, the head tax man and quite rich. ESV 3 And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small of stature. MSG 3 He wanted desperately to see Jesus, but the crowd was in his way - he was a short man and couldn't see over the crowd. ESV 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. MSG 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up in a sycamore tree so he could see Jesus when he came by. ESV 5 And 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." MSG 5 When Jesus got to the tree, he looked up and said, "Zacchaeus, hurry down. Today is my day to be a guest in your home." ESV 6 So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully. MSG 6 Zacchaeus scrambled out of the tree, hardly believing his good luck, delighted to take Jesus home with him. ESV 7 And when they saw it, they all grumbled, "He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner." MSG 7 Everyone who saw the incident was indignant and grumped, "What business does he have getting cozy with this crook?" ESV 8 And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, "Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold." MSG 8 Zacchaeus just stood there, a little stunned. He stammered apologetically, "Master, I give away half my income to the poor - and if I'm caught cheating, I pay four times the damages." ESV 9 And Jesus said to him, "Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. MSG 9 Jesus said, "Today is salvation day in this home! Here he is: Zacchaeus, son of Abraham! ESV 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost." MSG 10 For the Son of Man came to find and restore the lost." ESV 11 As they heard these things, he proceeded to tell a parable, because he was near to Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was to appear immediately. MSG 11 While he had their attention, and because they were getting close to Jerusalem by this time and expectation was building that God's kingdom would appear any minute, he told this story: ESV 12 He said therefore, "A nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and then return. MSG 12 "There was once a man descended from a royal house who needed to make a long trip back to headquarters to get authorization for his rule and then return. ESV 13 Calling ten of his servants, he gave them ten minas, and said to them, 'Engage in business until I come.' MSG 13 But first he called ten servants together, gave them each a sum of money, and instructed them, 'Operate with this until I return.' ESV 14 But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, 'We do not want this man to reign over us.' MSG 14 "But the citizens there hated him. So they sent a commission with a signed petition to oppose his rule: 'We don't want this man to rule us.' ESV 15 When he returned, having received the kingdom, he ordered these servants to whom he had given the money to be called to him, that he might know what they had gained by doing business. MSG 15 "When he came back bringing the authorization of his rule, he called those ten servants to whom he had given the money to find out how they had done. ESV 16 The first came before him, saying, 'Lord, your mina has made ten minas more.' MSG 16 "The first said, 'Master, I doubled your money.' ESV 17 And he said to him, 'Well done, good servant! Because you have been faithful in a very little, you shall have authority over ten cities.' MSG 17 "He said, 'Good servant! Great work! Because you've been trustworthy in this small job, I'm making you governor of ten towns.' ESV 18 And the second came, saying, 'Lord, your mina has made five minas.' MSG 18 "The second said, 'Master, I made a fifty percent profit on your money.' ESV 19 And he said to him, 'And you are to be over five cities.' MSG 19 "He said, 'I'm putting you in charge of five towns.' ESV 20 Then another came, saying, 'Lord, here is your mina, which I kept laid away in a handkerchief; MSG 20 "The next servant said, 'Master, here's your money safe and sound. I kept it hidden in the cellar. ESV 21 for I was afraid of you, because you are a severe man. You take what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.' MSG 21 To tell you the truth, I was a little afraid. I know you have high standards and hate sloppiness, and don't suffer fools gladly.' ESV 22 He said to him, 'I will condemn you with your own words, you wicked servant! You knew that I was a severe man, taking what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow? MSG 22 "He said, 'You're right that I don't suffer fools gladly - and you've acted the fool! ESV 23 Why then did you not put my money in the bank, and at my coming I might have collected it with interest?' MSG 23 Why didn't you at least invest the money in securities so I would have gotten a little interest on it?' ESV 24 And he said to those who stood by, 'Take the mina from him, and give it to the one who has the ten minas.' MSG 24 "Then he said to those standing there, 'Take the money from him and give it to the servant who doubled my stake.' ESV 25 And they said to him, 'Lord, he has ten minas!' MSG 25 "They said, 'But Master, he already has double . . .' ESV 26 'I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. MSG 26 "He said, 'That's what I mean: Risk your life and get more than you ever dreamed of. Play it safe and end up holding the bag. ESV 27 But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me.'" MSG 27 "'As for these enemies of mine who petitioned against my rule, clear them out of here. I don't want to see their faces around here again.'" ESV 28 And when he had said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem. MSG 28 After saying these things, Jesus headed straight up to Jerusalem. ESV 29 When he drew near to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount that is called Olivet, he sent two of the disciples, MSG 29 When he got near Bethphage and Bethany at the mountain called Olives, he sent off two of the disciples with instructions: ESV 30 saying, "Go into the village in front of you, where on entering you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet sat. Untie it and bring it here. MSG 30 "Go to the village across from you. As soon as you enter, you'll find a colt tethered, one that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it. ESV 31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' you shall say this: 'The Lord has need of it.'" MSG 31 If anyone says anything, asks, 'What are you doing?' say, 'His Master needs him.'" ESV 32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as he had told them. MSG 32 The two left and found it just as he said. ESV 33 And as they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, "Why are you untying the colt?" MSG 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners said, "What are you doing untying the colt?" ESV 34 And they said, "The Lord has need of it." MSG 34 They said, "His Master needs him." ESV 35 And they brought it to Jesus, and throwing their cloaks on the colt, they set Jesus on it. MSG 35 They brought the colt to Jesus. Then, throwing their coats on its back, they helped Jesus get on. ESV 36 And as he rode along, they spread their cloaks on the road. MSG 36 As he rode, the people gave him a grand welcome, throwing their coats on the street. ESV 37 As he was drawing near--already on the way down the Mount of Olives--the whole multitude of his disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen, MSG 37 Right at the crest, where Mount Olives begins its descent, the whole crowd of disciples burst into enthusiastic praise over all the mighty works they had witnessed: ESV 38 saying, "Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!" MSG 38 Blessed is he who comes, the king in God's name! All's well in heaven! Glory in the high places! ESV 39 And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples." MSG 39 Some Pharisees from the crowd told him, "Teacher, get your disciples under control!" ESV 40 He answered, "I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out." MSG 40 But he said, "If they kept quiet, the stones would do it for them, shouting praise." ESV 41 And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, MSG 41 When the city came into view, he wept over it. ESV 42 saying, "Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. MSG 42 "If you had only recognized this day, and everything that was good for you! But now it's too late. ESV 43 For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side MSG 43 In the days ahead your enemies are going to bring up their heavy artillery and surround you, pressing in from every side. ESV 44 and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation." MSG 44 They'll smash you and your babies on the pavement. Not one stone will be left intact. All this because you didn't recognize and welcome God's personal visit." ESV 45 And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold, MSG 45 Going into the Temple he began to throw out everyone who had set up shop, selling everything and anything. ESV 46 saying to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be a house of prayer,' but you have made it a den of robbers." MSG 46 He said, "It's written in Scripture, My house is a house of prayer; You have turned it into a religious bazaar." ESV 47 And he was teaching daily in the temple. The chief priests and the scribes and the principal men of the people were seeking to destroy him, MSG 47 From then on he taught each day in the Temple. The high priests, religion scholars, and the leaders of the people were trying their best to find a way to get rid of him. ESV 48 but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were hanging on his words. MSG 48 But with the people hanging on every word he spoke, they couldn't come up with anything.
