1Entering Jericho he made his way through the city.

2There was a man there named Zacchaeus; he was superintendent of taxes and very rich.

3He was eager to see what Jesus looked like; but, being a little man, he could not see him for the crowd.

4So he ran on ahead and climbed a sycomore tree in order to see him, for he was to pass that way.

5When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said, “Zacchaeus, be quick and come down, for I must stay at your house today.”

6He climbed down as quickly as he could and welcomed him gladly.

7At this there was a general murmur of disapproval. “He has gone in to be the guest of a sinner,” they said.

8But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, “Here and now, sir, I give half my possessions to charity; and if I have defrauded anyone, I will repay him four times over.”

9Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house -- for this man too is a son of Abraham.

10The Son of Man has come to seek and to save what is lost.”

11While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was now close to Jerusalem and they thought the kingdom of God might dawn at any moment.

12He said, “A man of noble birth went on a long journey abroad, to have himself appointed king and then return.

13But first he called ten of his servants and gave them each a sum of money, saying, ‘Trade with this while I am away.’

14His fellow-citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, ‘We do not want this man as our king.’

15He returned however as king, and sent for the servants to whom he had given the money, to find out what profit each had made.

16The first came and said, ‘Your money, sir, has increased tenfold.’

17‘Well done,’ he replied; ‘you are a good servant. Because you have shown yourself trustworthy in a very small matter, you shall have charge of ten cities.’

18The second came and said, ‘Your money, sir, has increased fivefold’;

19and he was told, ‘You shall be in charge of five cities.’

20The third came and said, ‘Here is your money, sir; I kept it wrapped up in a handkerchief.

21I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man: you draw out what you did not put in and reap what you did not sow.’

22‘You scoundrel!’ he replied. ‘I will condemn you out of your own mouth. You knew me to be a hard man, did you, drawing out what I never put in, and reaping what I did not sow?

23Then why did you not put my money on deposit, and I could have claimed it with interest when I came back?’

24Turning to his attendants he said, ‘Take the money from him and give it to the man with the most.’

25‘But, sir,’ they replied, ‘he has ten times as much already.’

26‘I tell you,’ he said, ‘everyone who has will be given more; but whoever has nothing will forfeit even what he has.

27But as for those enemies of mine who did not want me for their king, bring them here and slaughter them in my presence.’”

28WITH that Jesus set out on the ascent to Jerusalem.

29As he approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called Olivet, he sent off two of the disciples,

30telling them: “Go into the village opposite; as you enter it you will find tethered there a colt which no one has yet ridden. Untie it and bring it here.

31If anyone asks why you are untying it, say, ‘The Master needs it.’”

32The two went on their errand and found everything just as he had told them.

33As they were untying the colt, its owners asked, “Why are you untying that colt?”

34They answered, “The Master needs it.”

35So they brought the colt to Jesus, and threw their cloaks on it for Jesus to mount.

36As he went along people laid their cloaks on the road.

37And when he reached the descent from the mount of Olives, the whole company of his disciples in their joy began to sing aloud the praises of God for all the great things they had seen:

38“Blessed is he who comes as king in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, glory in highest heaven!”

39Some Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, restrain your disciples.”

40He answered, “I tell you, if my disciples are silent the stones will shout aloud.”

41When he came in sight of the city, he wept over it

42and said, “If only you had known this day the way that leads to peace! But no; it is hidden from your sight.

43For a time will come upon you, when your enemies will set up siege-works against you; they will encircle you and hem you in at every point;

44they will bring you to the ground, you and your children within your walls, and not leave you one stone standing on another, because you did not recognize the time of God's visitation.”

45Then he went into the temple and began driving out the traders,

46with these words: “Scripture says, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer’; but you have made it a bandits” cave.'

47Day by day he taught in the temple. The chief priests and scribes, with the support of the leading citizens, wanted to bring about his death,

48but found they were helpless, because the people all hung on his words.
