Luke 19 ©
Christ visiteth Zacchaeus the publican. The parable of a nobleman who left money with his servants to trade with in his absence. Christ rideth in triumph into Jerusalem: he weepeth over the city: driveth the buyers and sellers out of the temple: teacheth daily therein: the rulers seek to destroy him.
And when Jesus came to the place, he elooked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, fmake haste, and come down; for to day gI must abide at thy house.
jAnd 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.
And he said likewise to him, yBe thou also over five cities.
(And they said unto him, Lord, fhe hath ten pounds.)
Saying, Go ye into the village over against you; in the which at your entering ye shall find a colt tied, whereon yet never man sat: loose him, and bring him hither.
And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.
And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?
And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
And when he was come nigh, even now at the descent of the pmount of Olives, qthe whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works that they had seen;
Saying, vIf thou hadst known, even thou, at least in wthis thy day, xthe things which belong unto thy peace! but now ythey are hid from thine eyes.
zFor the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and *compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,
And could not find what they might do: for all the people 2were very attentive to hear him.
