Jesus Brings Salvation to Zacchaeus’s Home (180)
1Then Jesus entered and passed through Jericho. + 2Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. 3And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. 4So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. + 5And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him,a and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” 6So he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. 7But when they saw it, they all complained, saying, “He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.” +
8Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.” +
9And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; + 10for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” +
