16 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief
among the publicans, and he was rich.
17 And he sought to
see Joshua who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of
18 And he ran before, and climbed up into a
sycamore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
when Joshua came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him,
Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for today I must abide at thy house.
20 And he made haste, and came down, and
received him joyfully.
21 And when they saw it, they all
murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner. And
Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord; Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I
give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false
accusation, I restore him fourfold.
22 And Joshua said unto
him, This day is salvation come to this house,
forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
23 For the Son of man is come to
seek and to save that which was lost.
