1He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2There was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. 3He was trying to see who Jesus was, but he was not able because of the crowd, since he was a short man. 4So running ahead, he climbed up a sycamore tree to see Jesus, since He was about to pass that way. 5When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down because today I must stay at your house.”
6So he quickly came down and welcomed Him joyfully. 7All who saw it began to complain, # Lk 15:2 “He’s gone to lodge with a sinful man! ”
8But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, “Look, I’ll give # Or I give half of my possessions to the poor, # Lk 18:22 Lord! And if I have extorted # Lk 3:14 anything from anyone, I’ll pay # Or I pay back four times as much! ” # Ex 22:1; 2Sm 12:6
9“Today salvation # Lk 1:77 has come to this house,” Jesus told him, “because he too is a son of Abraham. # Lk 3:8; 13:16; Gl 3:7,29 10For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save the lost.” # Or save what was lost # Ezk 34:16; Mt 9:13; 10:6; 15:24; 18:12; Lk 15:4
