Of Zacchaeus a publican.
Luke 19:1 And, having entered, he was passing through Jericho; Luke 19:2 and lo! a man, by name called Zacchaeus, and, he, was a chief tax-collector, and [he] was rich. Luke 19:3 And he was seeking to see Jesus, what sort of man he was, and could not for the multitude, because, in stature, he was, small. Luke 19:4 And, running forward unto the front, he got up a sycamore-tree, that he might see him; for, by that way, was he about to pass. Luke 19:5 And, as he came up to the place, looking up, Jesus said unto himZacchaeus! make haste, and come down; For, today, in thy house, I must needs abide. Luke 19:6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully. Luke 19:7 And all, when they beheld, began to murmur, sayingWith a sinful man, hath he gone in to lodge! Luke 19:8 But, taking his stand, Zacchaeus said unto the LordLo! the half of my possessions, Lord, unto the destitute, I give; and, if, from anyone, I have taken aught by false accusation, I give back fourfold. Luke 19:9 And Jesus said unto himThis day, salvation, unto this house, hath come,for that, he too, is, a son of Abraham; Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came, to seek and to save what was lost.
The ten pieces of money.
Luke 19:11 And, because they were hearing these things, he added and spake a parable, because of his being near Jerusalem, and their supposing that, instantly, was the kingdom of God to shine forth. Luke 19:12 He said, thereforeA certain man, of noble birth, went into a country far away, to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. Luke 19:13 And, calling ten servants of his own, he gave unto them ten minas, and said unto themDo business, till I come. Luke 19:14 But, his citizens, hated him, and sent off an embassy after him, sayingWe desire not, this, man, to be made king over us! Luke 19:15 And it came to pass, when he returned, having received the kingdom, that he bade be called unto him these servants, to whom he had given the silver, that he might take note, what business they had done. Luke 19:16 And the first came near, sayingLord! thy mina, hath made, ten minas. Luke 19:17 And he said to himWell done! good servant. Because, in a very small thing, thou hast been, faithful, have thou authority over, ten cities. Luke 19:18 And the second came, sayingThy mina, lord, hath made five minas. Luke 19:19 And he said, to him also, And, thou, be over five cities. Luke 19:20 And, the other, came, sayingLord, lo! thy mina, which I kept lying by in a napkin; Luke 19:21 For I was afraid of thee, because, a harsh man, thou art,Thou takest up, what thou layedst not down, and reapest, what thou sowedst not! Luke 19:22 He saith to himOut of thy mouth, do I judge thee, O wicked servant! Thou knewest that, I, a harsh man, am,taking up, what I laid not down, and reaping, what I did not sow; Luke 19:23 Wherefore, then, didst thou not place my silver upon a [money-changer's] table, and, I, when I came, with interest might have exacted it? Luke 19:24 And, unto the by-standers, he saidTake, from him, the mina, and give unto him that hath, the ten minas; Luke 19:25 And they said to him, Lord! he hath ten minas; Luke 19:26 I tell youUnto everyone that hath, shall be given, whereas, from him that hath not, even what he hath, shall be taken away. Luke 19:27 But, these mine enemies who desired not that I should be made king over them, bring ye here, and slay them outright before me.
Christ rideth into Jerusalem with triumph:
Luke 19:28 And, having said these things, he was moving on in front, going up into Jerusalem. Luke 19:29 And it came to pass, as he drew near unto Bethphage, and Bethany, unto the mount which is called the Mount of Olives, he sent off two of his disciples, Luke 19:30 sayingGo your way unto the opposite village, in which, as ye are entering, ye shall find a colt, bound, whereon, no man, hath, ever sat,and, having loosed him, bring him. Luke 19:31 And, if any one question youWherefore are ye loosing him? thus, shall ye sayHis Lord, hath, need. Luke 19:32 And they who were sent, departing, found as he had said to them. Luke 19:33 And, as they were loosing the colt, his lords said unto themWhy are ye loosing the colt? Luke 19:34 And, they, saidHis Lord, hath, need. Luke 19:35 And they brought him unto Jesus; and, throwing their mantles over the colt, they seated Jesus thereon. Luke 19:36 And, as he moved along, they were spreading their own mantles in the way. Luke 19:37 And, when he was drawing near, already, unto the descent of the Mount of Olives, one-and-all the throng of the disciples began joyfully to be praising God with a loud voice, concerning all the mighty works which they had seen; Luke 19:38 sayingBlessed is he that cometh . . . The king! In the name of the Lord! In heaven, peace! And glory in the highest! Luke 19:39 And, certain of the Pharisees from the multitude, said unto himTeacher! rebuke thy disciples. Luke 19:40 And he answered and saidI tell youIf, these, shall hold their peace, the stones, will cry out.
weepeth over it:
Luke 19:41 And, when he drew near, beholding the city, he wept over it, saying Luke 19:42 If thou hadst got to know, in this day, even thou, the conditions of peace . . . But, now, are they hid from thine eyes: Luke 19:43 Because days will have come upon thee, that thine enemies will throw around a rampart against thee, and enclose thee; and hem thee in from every side, Luke 19:44 And will level thee with the ground, and thy children within thee, and will not leave, stone on stone, within thee: because thou didst not get to know the season of thy visitation.
driveth the buyers and sellers out of the Temple:
Luke 19:45 And, entering into the temple, he began to be casting out them who were selling; Luke 19:46 saying unto themIt is written, And, my house, shall be, a house of prayer; but, ye, have made, it, a den of robbers.
teaching daily in it. The rulers would have destroyed him, but for fear of the people.
Luke 19:47 And he was teaching day by day in the temple; but, the High-priests and the Scribes, also the chiefs of the people, were seeking to destroy him, Luke 19:48 and could not find what they might do, for, the people, one and all, were hanging upon him, as they hearkened.
