(Luke 19:1-9 ERV) Jesus was going through the city of Jericho. (2) In Jericho there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a wealthy, very important tax collector. (3) He wanted to see who Jesus was. There were many others who wanted to see Jesus too. Zacchaeus was too short to see above the people. (4) So he ran to a place where he knew Jesus would come. Then he climbed a sycamore tree so he could see him. (5) When Jesus came to where Zacchaeus was, he looked up and saw him in the tree. Jesus said, “Zacchaeus, hurry! Come down! I must stay at your house today.” (6) Zacchaeus hurried and came down. He was happy to have Jesus in his house. (7) Everyone saw this. They began to complain, “Look at the kind of man Jesus is staying with. Zacchaeus is a sinner!” (8) Zacchaeus said to the Lord, “I want to do good. I will give half of my money to the poor. If I have cheated anyone, I will pay them back four times more.” (9) Jesus said, “Today is the day for this family to be saved from sin. Yes, even this tax collector is one of God’s chosen people. (10) The Son of Man came to find lost people and save them.”
