Christ Abides with Zacchaeus

19 Then Jesus entered and passed through aJericho. Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. And he sought to bsee who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature. So he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him, for He was going to pass that way. And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up 1and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, 2make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.” So he 3made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully. But when they saw it, they all 4complained, saying, c“He has gone to be a guest with a man who is a sinner.”

Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the dpoor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by efalse accusation, fI restore fourfold.”

And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because ghe also is ha son of Abraham; 10 ifor the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
