Luke 19 (WEBP)

[1] He entered and was passing through Jericho.
[2] There was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.
[3] He was trying to see who Jesus was, and couldn’t because of the crowd, because he was short.
[4] He ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was going to pass that way.
[5] When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”
[6] He hurried, came down, and received him joyfully.
[7] When they saw it, they all murmured, saying, “He has gone in to lodge with a man who is a sinner.”
[8] Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, half of my goods I give to the poor. If I have wrongfully exacted anything of anyone, I restore four times as much.”
[9] Jesus said to him, “Today, salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham.
[10] For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.”
[11] As they heard these things, he went on and told a parable, because he was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that God’s Kingdom would be revealed immediately.
[12] He said therefore, “A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return.
[13] He called ten servants of his and gave them ten mina coins,° and told them, ‘Conduct business until I come.’
[14] But his citizens hated him, and sent an envoy after him, saying, ‘We don’t want this man to reign over us.’
[15] “When he had come back again, having received the kingdom, he commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know what they had gained by conducting business.
[16] The first came before him, saying, ‘Lord, your mina has made ten more minas.’
[17] “He said to him, ‘Well done, you good servant! Because you were found faithful with very little, you shall have authority over ten cities.’
[18] “The second came, saying, ‘Your mina, Lord, has made five minas.’
[19] “So he said to him, ‘And you are to be over five cities.’
[20] Another came, saying, ‘Lord, behold, your mina, which I kept laid away in a handkerchief,
[21] for I feared you, because you are an exacting man. You take up that which you didn’t lay down, and reap that which you didn’t sow.’
[22] “He said to him, ‘Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant! You knew that I am an exacting man, taking up that which I didn’t lay down and reaping that which I didn’t sow.
[23] Then why didn’t you deposit my money in the bank, and at my coming, I might have earned interest on it?’
[24] He said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina away from him and give it to him who has the ten minas.’
[25] “They said to him, ‘Lord, he has ten minas!’
[26] ‘For I tell you that to everyone who has, will more be given; but from him who doesn’t have, even that which he has will be taken away from him.
[27] But bring those enemies of mine who didn’t want me to reign over them here, and kill them before me.’ ”
[28] Having said these things, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.
[29] When he came near to Bethsphage° and Bethany, at the mountain that is called Olivet, he sent two of his disciples,
[30] saying, “Go your way into the village on the other side, in which, as you enter, you will find a colt tied, which no man has ever sat upon. Untie it and bring it.
[31] If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say to him: ‘The Lord needs it.’ ”
[32] Those who were sent went away and found things just as he had told them.
[33] As they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the colt?”
[34] They said, “The Lord needs it.”
[35] Then they brought it to Jesus. They threw their cloaks on the colt and sat Jesus on them.
[36] As he went, they spread their cloaks on the road.
[37] As he was now getting near, at the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works which they had seen,
[38] saying, “Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest!”
[39] Some of the Pharisees from the multitude said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”
[40] He answered them, “I tell you that if these were silent, the stones would cry out.”
[41] When he came near, he saw the city and wept over it,
[42] saying, “If you, even you, had known today the things which belong to your peace! But now, they are hidden from your eyes.
[43] For the days will come on you when your enemies will throw up a barricade against you, surround you, hem you in on every side,
[44] and will dash you and your children within you to the ground. They will not leave in you one stone on another, because you didn’t know the time of your visitation.”
[45] He entered into the temple and began to drive out those who bought and sold in it,
[46] saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house is a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of robbers’!”
[47] He was teaching daily in the temple, but the chief priests, the scribes, and the leading men among the people sought to destroy him.
[48] They couldn’t find what they might do, for all the people hung on to every word that he said.

Luke 19 (KJVS)

[1] And G2532 [Jesus] entered G1525 (Aor2ActPtc) and passed through G1330 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) Jericho G2410.
[2] And G2532, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), [there was] a man G435 named G3686 G2564 (PresPasPtc) Zacchaeus G2195, which G2532 G846 was G2258 (ImpfInd) the chief among the publicans G754, and G2532 he G3778 was G2258 (ImpfInd) rich G4145.
[3] And G2532 he sought G2212 (ImpfActInd) to see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) Jesus G2424 who G5101 he was G2076 (PresInd); and G2532 could G1410 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) not G3756 for G575 the press G3793, because G3754 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) little G3398 of stature G2244.
[4] And G2532 he ran G4390 (Aor2ActPtc) before G1715, and climbed up G305 (Aor2ActInd) into G1909 a sycomore tree G4809 to G2443 see G1492 (Aor2ActSubj) him G846: for G3754 he was G3195 (ImpfActInd) to pass G1330 (PresMidPasDepInf) G1223 that G1565 [way].
[5] And G2532 when G5613 Jesus G2424 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to G1909 the place G5117, he looked up G308 (AorActPtc), and saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) him G846, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 him G846, Zacchaeus G2195, make haste G4692 (AorActPtc), and come down G2597 (Aor2ActImpr); for G1063 to day G4594 I G3165 must G1163 (PresInd) abide G3306 (AorActInf) at G1722 thy G4675 house G3624.
[6] And G2532 he made haste G4692 (AorActPtc), and came down G2597 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 received G5264 (AorMidDepInd) him G846 joyfully G5463 (PresActPtc).
[7] And G2532 when they saw G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) [it], they G1234 all G537 murmured G1234 (ImpfActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), That G3754 he was gone G1525 (Aor2ActInd) to be guest G2647 (AorActInf) with G3844 a man G435 that is a sinner G268.
[8] And G1161 Zacchaeus G2195 stood G2476 (AorPasPtc), and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 the Lord G2962; Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), Lord G2962, the half G2255 of my G3450 goods G5224 (PresActPtc) I give G1325 (PresActInd) to the poor G4434; and G2532 if G1536 I have taken G4811 any thing G1536 from any man G5100 by false accusation G4811 (AorActInd), I restore G591 (PresActInd) [him] fourfold G5073.
[9] And G1161 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 him G846, G3754 This day G4594 is G1096 salvation G4991 come G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) to this G5129 house G3624, forsomuch as G2530 he G846 also G2532 is G2076 (PresInd) a son G5207 of Abraham G11.
[10] For G1063 the Son G5207 of man G444 is come G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to seek G2212 (AorActInf) and G2532 to save G4982 (AorActInf) that which was lost G622 (Perf2ActPtc).
[11] And G1161 as they G846 heard G191 (PresActPtc) these things G5023, he added G4369 (Aor2ActPtc) and spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) a parable G3850, because G1223 he G846 was G1511 (PresInf) nigh G1451 to Jerusalem G2419, and G2532 because they G846 thought G1380 (PresActInf) that G3754 the kingdom G932 of God G2316 should G3195 (PresActInd) immediately G3916 appear G398 (PresPasInf).
[12] He said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) therefore G3767, A certain G5100 nobleman G444 G2104 went G4198 (AorPasDepInd) into G1519 a far G3117 country G5561 to receive G2983 (Aor2ActInf) for himself G1438 a kingdom G932, and G2532 to return G5290 (AorActInf).
[13] And G1161 he called G2564 (AorActPtc) his G1438 ten G1176 servants G1401, and delivered G1325 (AorActInd) them G846 ten G1176 pounds G3414, and G2532 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Occupy G4231 (AorMidDepImpr) till G2193 I come G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd).
[14] But G1161 his G846 citizens G4177 hated G3404 (ImpfActInd) him G846, and G2532 sent G649 (AorActInd) a message G4242 after G3694 him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), We will G2309 not G3756 have G2309 (PresActInd) this G5126 [man] to reign G936 (AorActInf) over G1909 us G2248.
[15] And G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), that when G1722 he G846 was returned G1880 (Aor2ActInf), having received G2983 (Aor2ActPtc) the kingdom G932, then G2532 he commanded G2036 (Aor2ActInd) these G5128 servants G1401 to be called G5455 (AorPasInf) unto him G846, to whom G3739 he had given G1325 (AorActInd) the money G694, that G2443 he might know G1097 (Aor2ActSubj) how much G5101 every man G5101 had gained by trading G1281 (AorMidDepInd).
[16] Then G1161 came G3854 (Aor2MidDepInd) the first G4413, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Lord G2962, thy G4675 pound G3414 hath gained G4333 (AorMidDepInd) ten G1176 pounds G3414.
[17] And G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Well G2095, thou good G18 servant G1401: because G3754 thou hast been G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) faithful G4103 in G1722 a very little G1646, have G2192 (PresActPtc) thou authority G2468 (PresImpr) G1849 over G1883 ten G1176 cities G4172.
[18] And G2532 the second G1208 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Lord G2962, thy G4675 pound G3414 hath gained G4160 (AorActInd) five G4002 pounds G3414.
[19] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) likewise G2532 to him G5129, Be G1096 (PresMidPasDepImpr) thou G4771 also G2532 over G1883 five G4002 cities G4172.
[20] And G2532 another G2087 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Lord G2962, behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), [here is] thy G4675 pound G3414, which G3739 I have G2192 (ImpfActInd) kept laid up G606 (PresMidPasDepPtc) in G1722 a napkin G4676:
[21] For G1063 I feared G5399 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) thee G4571, because G3754 thou art G1488 (PresInd) an austere G840 man G444: thou takest up G142 (PresActInd) that G3739 thou layedst G5087 not G3756 down G5087 (AorActInd), and G2532 reapest G2325 (PresActInd) that G3739 thou didst G4687 not G3756 sow G4687 (AorActInd).
[22] And G1161 he saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Out of G1537 thine own G4675 mouth G4750 will I judge G2919 (FutActInd) thee G4571, [thou] wicked G4190 servant G1401. Thou knewest G1492 (PlupfActInd) that G3754 I G1473 was G1510 (PresInd) an austere G840 man G444, taking up G142 (PresActPtc) that G3739 I laid G5087 not G3756 down G5087 (AorActInd), and G2532 reaping G2325 (PresActPtc) that G3739 I did G4687 not G3756 sow G4687 (AorActInd):
[23] Wherefore G1302 then G2532 gavest G1325 not G3756 thou G1325 (AorActInd) my G3450 money G694 into G1909 the bank G5132, that G2532 at my coming G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) I G1473 might G302 have required G4238 (AorActInd) mine own G846 with G4862 usury G5110?
[24] And G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them that stood by G3936 (PerfActPtc), Take G142 (AorActImpr) from G575 him G846 the pound G3414, and G2532 give G1325 (Aor2ActImpr) [it] to him that hath G2192 (PresActPtc) ten G1176 pounds G3414.
[25] (And G2532 they said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Lord G2962, he hath G2192 (PresActInd) ten G1176 pounds G3414.)
[26] For G1063 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, That G3754 unto every one G3956 which G3588 hath G2192 (PresActPtc) shall be given G1325 (FutPasInd); and G1161 from G575 him that hath G2192 (PresActPtc) not G3361, even G2532 that G3739 he hath G2192 (PresActInd) shall be taken away G142 (FutPasInd) from G575 him G846.
[27] But G4133 those G1565 mine G3450 enemies G2190, which G3588 would G2309 (AorActPtc) not G3361 that I G3165 should reign G936 (AorActInf) over G1909 them G846, bring G71 (Aor2ActImpr) hither G5602, and G2532 slay G2695 (AorActImpr) [them] before G1715 me G3450.
[28] And G2532 when he had thus G5023 spoken G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), he went G4198 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) before G1715, ascending up G305 (PresActPtc) to G1519 Jerusalem G2414.
[29] And G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), when G5613 he was come nigh G1448 (AorActInd) to G1519 Bethphage G967 and G2532 Bethany G963, at G4314 the mount G3735 called G2564 (PresPasPtc) [the mount] of Olives G1636, he sent G649 (AorActInd) two G1417 of his G846 disciples G3101,
[30] Saying G2036 (Aor2ActPtc), Go ye G5217 (PresActImpr) into G1519 the village G2968 over against G2713 [you]; in G1722 the which G3739 at your entering G1531 (PresMidPasDepPtc) ye shall find G2147 (FutActInd) a colt G4454 tied G1210 (PerfPasPtc), whereon G1909 G3739 yet never G3762 man G444 sat G2523 (AorActInd) G4455: loose G3089 (AorActPtc) him G846, and bring G71 (Aor2ActImpr) [him hither].
[31] And G2532 if G1437 any man G5100 ask G2065 (PresActSubj) you G5209, Why G1302 do ye loose G3089 (PresActInd) [him]? thus G3779 shall ye say G2046 (FutActInd) unto him G846, Because G3754 the Lord G2962 hath G2192 (PresActInd) need G5532 of him G846.
[32] And G1161 they that were sent G649 (PerfPasPtc) went their way G565 (Aor2ActPtc), and found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) even as G2531 he had said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846.
[33] And G1161 as they G846 were loosing G3089 (PresActPtc) the colt G4454, the owners G2962 thereof G846 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 them G846, Why G5101 loose ye G3089 (PresActInd) the colt G4454?
[34] And G1161 they said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), The Lord G2962 hath G2192 (PresActInd) need G5532 of him G846.
[35] And G2532 they brought G71 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 to G4314 Jesus G2424: and G2532 they cast G1977 their G1438 garments G2440 upon G1909 G1977 the colt G4454, and G1977 (AorActPtc) they set G1913 Jesus G2424 thereon G1913 (AorActInd).
[36] And G1161 as he G846 went G4198 (PresMidPasDepPtc), they spread G5291 (ImpfActInd) their G846 clothes G2440 in G1722 the way G3598.
[37] And when he G846 was come nigh G1448 (PresActPtc), even G1161 now G2235 at G4314 the descent G2600 of the mount G3735 of Olives G1636, the whole G537 multitude G4128 of the disciples G3101 began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to rejoice G5463 (PresActPtc) and praise G134 (PresActInf) God G2316 with a loud G3173 voice G5456 for G4012 all G3956 the mighty works G1411 that G3739 they had seen G1492 (Aor2ActInd);
[38] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Blessed G2127 (PerfPasPtc) [be] the King G935 that cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) in G1722 the name G3686 of the Lord G2962: peace G1515 in G1722 heaven G3772, and G2532 glory G1391 in G1722 the highest G5310.
[39] And G2532 some G5100 of the Pharisees G5330 from G575 among the multitude G3793 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto G4314 him G846, Master G1320, rebuke G2008 (AorActImpr) thy G4675 disciples G3101.
[40] And G2532 he answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, I tell G3004 (PresActInd) you G5213 that G3754, if G1437 these G3778 should hold their peace G4623 (AorActSubj), the stones G3037 would immediately cry out G2896 (Fut2MidDepInd).
[41] And G2532 when G5613 he was come near G1448 (AorActInd), he beheld G1492 (Aor2ActPtc) the city G4172, and wept G2799 (AorActInd) over G1909 it G846,
[42] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), If G3754 G1487 thou hadst known G1097 (Aor2ActInd), even G2532 thou G4771, at least G2534 in G1722 this G5026 thy G4675 day G2250, the things G3588 [which belong] unto G4314 thy G4675 peace G1515! but G1161 now G3568 they are hid G2928 (Aor2PasDepSubj) from G575 thine G4675 eyes G3788.
[43] For G3754 the days G2250 shall come G2240 (FutActInd) upon G1909 thee G4571, that G2532 thine G4675 enemies G2190 shall cast G4016 a trench G5482 about G4016 (FutActInd) thee G4671, and G2532 compass G4033 thee G4571 round G4033 (FutActInd), and G2532 keep G4912 thee G4571 in G4912 (FutActInd) on every side G3840,
[44] And G2532 shall lay G1474 thee G4571 even with the ground G1474 (FutActInd), and G2532 thy G4675 children G5043 within G1722 thee G4671; and G2532 they shall G863 not G3756 leave G863 (FutActInd) in G1722 thee G4671 one stone G3037 upon G1909 another G3037; because G473 G3739 thou knewest G1097 (Aor2ActInd) not G3756 the time G2540 of thy G4675 visitation G1984.
[45] And G2532 he went G1525 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 the temple G2411, and began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to cast out G1544 (PresActInf) them that sold G4453 (PresActPtc) therein G1722 G846, and G2532 them that bought G59 (PresActPtc);
[46] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc) unto them G846, It is written G1125 (PerfPasInd), My G3450 house G3624 is G2076 (PresInd) the house G3624 of prayer G4335: but G1161 ye G5210 have made G4160 (AorActInd) it G846 a den G4693 of thieves G3027.
[47] And G2532 he taught G2258 (ImpfInd) G1321 (PresActPtc) daily G2596 G2250 in G1722 the temple G2411. But G1161 the chief priests G749 and G2532 the scribes G1122 and G2532 the chief G4413 of the people G2992 sought G2212 (ImpfActInd) to destroy G622 (AorActInf) him G846,
[48] And G2532 could G2147 not G3756 find G2147 (ImpfActInd) what G5101 they might do G4160 (AorActSubj): for G1063 all G537 the people G2992 were very attentive G1582 (ImpfMidInd) to hear G191 (PresActPtc) him G846.

Young’s Literal Translation

Luke 19 (YLT)

[1] And having entered, he was passing through Jericho,
[2] and lo, a man, by name called Zaccheus, and he was a chief tax-gatherer, and he was rich,
[3] and he was seeking to see Jesus, who he is, and was not able for the multitude, because in stature he was small,
[4] and having run forward before, he went up on a sycamore, that he may see him, because through that way he was about to pass by.
[5] And as Jesus came up to the place, having looked up, he saw him, and said unto him, ‘Zaccheus, having hastened, come down, for to-day in thy house it behoveth me to remain;’
[6] and he having hastened did come down, and did receive him rejoicing;
[7] and having seen it, they were all murmuring, saying-‘With a sinful man he went in to lodge!’
[8] And Zaccheus having stood, said unto the Lord, ‘Lo, the half of my goods, sir, I give to the poor, and if of any one anything I did take by false accusation, I give back fourfold.’
[9] And Jesus said unto him-‘To-day salvation did come to this house, inasmuch as he also is a son of Abraham;
[10] for the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.’
[11] And while they are hearing these things, having added he spake a simile, because of his being nigh to Jerusalem, and of their thinking that the reign of God is about presently to be made manifest.
[12] He said therefore, ‘A certain man of birth went on to a far country, to take to himself a kingdom, and to return,
[13] and having called ten servants of his own, he gave to them ten pounds, and said unto them, Do business-till I come;
[14] and his citizens were hating him, and did send an embassy after him, saying, We do not wish this one to reign over us.
[15] ‘And it came to pass, on his coming back, having taken the kingdom, that he commanded these servants to be called to him, to whom he gave the money, that he might know what any one had done in business.
[16] ‘And the first came near, saying, Sir, thy pound did gain ten pounds;
[17] and he said to him, Well done, good servant, because in a very little thou didst become faithful, be having authority over ten cities.
[18] ‘And the second came, saying, Sir, thy pound made five pounds;
[19] and he said also to this one, And thou, become thou over five cities.
[20] ‘And another came, saying, Sir, lo, thy pound, that I had lying away in a napkin;
[21] for I was afraid of thee, because thou art an austere man; thou takest up what thou didst not lay down, and reapest what thou didst not sow.
[22] ‘And he saith to him, Out of thy mouth I will judge thee, evil servant: thou knewest that I am an austere man, taking up what I did not lay down, and reaping what I did not sow!
[23] and wherefore didst thou not give my money to the bank, and I, having come, with interest might have received it?
[24] ‘And to those standing by he said, Take from him the pound, and give to him having the ten pounds-
[25] (and they said to him, Sir, he hath ten pounds)-
[26] for I say to you, that to every one having shall be given, and from him not having, also what he hath shall be taken from him,
[27] but those my enemies, who did not wish me to reign over them, bring hither and slay before me.’
[28] And having said these things, he went on before, going up to Jerusalem.
[29] And it came to pass, as he came nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, unto the mount called of the Olives, he sent two of his disciples,
[30] having said, Go away to the village over-against, in which, entering into, ye shall find a colt bound, on which no one of men did ever sit, having loosed it, bring it;
[31] and if any one doth question you, Wherefore do ye loose it? thus ye shall say to him-The Lord hath need of it.’
[32] And those sent, having gone away, found according as he said to them,
[33] and while they are loosing the colt, its owners said unto them, ‘Why loose ye the colt?’
[34] and they said, ‘The Lord hath need of it;’
[35] and they brought it unto Jesus, and having cast their garments upon the colt, they did set Jesus upon it.
[36] And as he is going, they were spreading their garments in the way,
[37] and as he is coming nigh now, at the descent of the mount of the Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began rejoicing to praise God with a great voice for all the mighty works they had seen,
[38] saying, ‘blessed is he who is coming, a king in the name of the Lord; peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.’
[39] And certain of the Pharisees from the multitude said unto him, ‘Teacher, rebuke thy disciples;’
[40] and he answering said to them, ‘I say to you, that, if these shall be silent, the stones will cry out!’
[41] And when he came nigh, having seen the city, he wept over it,
[42] saying-‘If thou didst know, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things for thy peace; but now they were hid from thine eyes.
[43] ‘Because days shall come upon thee, and thine enemies shall cast around thee a rampart, and compass thee round, and press thee on every side,
[44] and lay thee low, and thy children within thee, and they shall not leave in thee a stone upon a stone, because thou didst not know the time of thy inspection.’
[45] And having entered into the temple, he began to cast forth those selling in it, and those buying,
[46] saying to them, ‘It hath been written, My house is a house of prayer-but ye made it a den of robbers.’
[47] And he was teaching daily in the temple, but the chief priests and the scribes were seeking to destroy him-also the chiefs of the people-
[48] and they were not finding what they shall do, for all the people were hanging on him, hearing him.
