[Jesus] entered Jericho and was passing through.
And there was a man named Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector, and rich. He sought to see who Jesus was, but could not, because he was short. So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree along the way.
And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down; for I must stay at your place today.”
So he made haste to come down, and received him joyfully.
And when people saw it they all murmured, “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 I give to the poor; and if I have defrauded anybody of anything, I restore it fourfold!”
And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since [Zacchaeus] too is a son of Abraham. For this son of Adam came to seek and to save the lost.”
