1 And having entered, he walked through Jericho.
2 And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. And he was the leader of the tax collectors, and he was wealthy.
3 And he sought to see Jesus, to see who he was. But he was unable to do so, because of the crowd, for he was small in stature.
4 And running ahead, he climbed up a sycamore tree, so that he might see him. For he was to pass near there.
5 And when he had arrived at the place, Jesus looked up and saw him, and he said to him: "Zacchaeus, hurry down. For today, I should lodge in your house."
6 And hurrying, he came down, and he received him joyfully.
7 And when they all saw this, they murmured, saying that he had turned aside to a sinful man.
8 But Zacchaeus, standing still, said to the Lord: "Behold, Lord, one half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have cheated anyone in any matter, I will repay him fourfold."
9 Jesus said to him: "Today, salvation has come to this house; because of this, he too is a son of Abraham.
10 For the Son of man has come to seek and to save what had been lost."
