2 And there was a man called by the name of Zaccheus; he was a chief tax collector and he was rich.
2 And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
2 There was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich.
2 a man named Zacchaeus appeared. He was a leading tax collector, and a rich one at that!
2 And there was a man called Zaccheus; he was a chief tax collector [a superintendent to whom others reported], and he was rich.
3 Zaccheus was trying to see who Jesus was, and was unable because of the crowd, for he was small in stature.
3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature.
3 He was trying to see who Jesus was, but he was not able because of the crowd, since he was a short man.
3 He was trying to see who Jesus was, but he couldn't do so due to the crowd, since he was a short man.
4 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.
4 So running ahead, he climbed up a sycamore tree to see Jesus, since He was about to pass that way.
4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore tree to see Jesus, who was going to pass that way.
4 So he ran on ahead [of the crowd] and climbed up in a sycamore tree in order to see Him, for He was about to pass through that way.
5 When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”
5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.
5 When Jesus came to the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down because today I must stay at your house.”
5 When Jesus came to the tree, he looked up and said, "Zacchaeus, hurry and come down! I must stay at your house today."
5 When Jesus reached the place, He looked up and said to him, “Zaccheus, hurry and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”
6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
6 So he quickly came down and welcomed Him joyfully.
6 Zacchaeus came down quickly and was glad to welcome him into his home.
6 So Zaccheus hurried and came down, and welcomed Jesus with joy.
7 And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
7 But all the people who saw this began to complain: "Jesus is going to be the guest of a notorious sinner!"
7 When the people saw it, they all began muttering [in discontent], “He has gone to be the guest of a man who is a [notorious] sinner.”
8 Zaccheus stopped and said to (C)the Lord, “Behold, Lord, half of my possessions I (d)will give to the poor, and if I have (D)defrauded anyone of anything, I (e)will give back (E)four times as much.”
8 And 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.
8 But Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, “Look, I’ll give(a) half of my possessions to the poor,(B) Lord! And if I have extorted(C) anything from anyone, I’ll pay(b) back four times as much!”(D)
8 Later, Zacchaeus stood up and announced to the Lord, "Look! I'm giving half of my possessions to the destitute, and if I have accused anyone falsely, I'm repaying four times as much as I owe."
9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
9 Then Jesus told him, "Today salvation has come to this home, because this man is also a descendant of Abraham,
10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
10 and the Son of Man has come to seek and to save the lost."
10 for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”
11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.
11 As they were listening to this, Jesus went on to tell a parable because he was near Jerusalem and because the people thought that the kingdom of God would appear immediately.
11 While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they assumed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately [as soon as He reached the city].
12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
12 So he said, "A prince went to a distant country to be appointed king and then to return.
12 So He said, “A nobleman went to a distant country to obtain for himself a kingdom, and [then] to return.
13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.
13 He called ten of his servants and gave them ten coins. He told them, "Invest this money until I come back.'
13 So he called ten of his servants, and gave them ten minas [one apiece, each equal to about a hundred days’ wages] and said to them, ‘Do business [with this] until I return.’
14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.
14 “But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We don’t want this man to rule over us!’
14 But the citizens of his country hated him and sent a delegation to follow him and to announce, "We don't want this man to rule over us!'
14 But his citizens [the residents of his new kingdom] hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to be a king over us.’
15 When he returned, after receiving the kingdom, he ordered that these slaves, to whom he had given the money, be called to him so that he might know what business they had done.
15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.
15 "After he was appointed king, the prince came back. He ordered the servants to whom he had given the money to be called so he could find out what they had earned by investing.
15 When he returned, after receiving the kingdom, he ordered that these servants, to whom he had given the money, be called to him, that he might find out what business they had done.
16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.
16 The first came forward and said, ‘Master, your mina has earned 10 more minas.’
16 The first servant came and said, "Sir, your coin has earned ten more coins.'
16 The first one came before him and said, ‘Lord, your mina has made ten more minas.’
17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
17 The king told him, "Well done, good servant! Because you have been trustworthy in a very small thing, take charge of ten cities.'
17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant! Because you proved yourself faithful and trustworthy in a very little thing, you shall [now] have authority over ten cities [in my kingdom].’
18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.
18 “The second came and said, ‘Master, your mina has made five minas.’
18 "The second servant came and said, "Your coin, sir, has earned five coins.'
18 The second one came and said, ‘Lord, your mina has made five minas.’
19 And he said to him also, ‘And you are to be over five cities.’
19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.
19 “So he said to him, ‘You will be over five towns.’
19 The king told him, "You take charge of five cities.'
19 And he said to him also, ‘And you shall take charge over five cities.’
20 Another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I kept put away in a handkerchief;
20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:
20 “And another came and said, ‘Master, here is your mina. I have kept it hidden away in a cloth
20 "Then the other servant came and said, "Sir, look! Here's your coin. I've kept it in a cloth for safekeeping
20 Then another came and said, ‘Lord, here is your mina, which I have kept laid up in a handkerchief [for safekeeping].
21 for I was afraid of you, because you are an exacting man; you take up what you did not lay down and reap what you did not sow.’
21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.
21 because I was afraid of you. You are a hard man. You withdraw what you didn't deposit and harvest what you didn't plant.'
21 I was [always] afraid of you, because you are a stern man; you pick up what you did not lay down and you reap what you did not sow.’
22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:
22 The king told him, "I will judge you by your own words, you evil servant! You knew, did you, that I was a hard man, and that I withdraw what I didn't deposit and harvest what I didn't plant?
22 He said to the servant, ‘I will judge and condemn you by your own words, you worthless servant! Did you [really] know that I was a stern man, picking up what I did not lay down and reaping what I did not sow?
23 Then why did you not put my money in the bank, and having come, I would have collected it with interest?’
23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?
23 why didn’t you put my money in the bank? And when I returned, I would have collected it with interest!’
23 Then why didn't you put my money in the bank? When I returned, I could have collected it with interest.'
23 Then why did you not [at the very least] put my money in a bank? Then on my return, I would have collected it with interest.’
24 Then he said to the bystanders, ‘Take the mina away from him and give it to the one who has the ten minas.’
24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.
24 So he said to those standing there, ‘Take the mina away from him and give it to the one who has 10 minas.’
24 "So the king told those standing nearby, "Take the coin away from him and give it to the man who has the ten coins.'
24 Then he said to the bystanders, ‘Take the mina away from him and give it to the one who has the ten minas.’
26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.
26 "I tell you, to everyone who has something, more will be given, but from the person who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away.
26 [Jesus explained,] ‘I tell you that to everyone who has [because he valued his gifts from God and has used them wisely], more will be given; but from the one who does not have [because he disregarded his gifts from God], even what he has will be taken away.’
27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
27 But as for these enemies of mine who didn't want me to be their king bring them here and slaughter them in my presence!'"
27 [The king ended by saying,] ‘But as for these enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them, bring them here and kill them in my presence.’”
28 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending up to Jerusalem.
28 After Jesus had said this, he traveled on and went up to Jerusalem.
28 After saying these things, Jesus went on ahead [of them], going up to Jerusalem.
29 And it came to pass, when he was come nigh to Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called the mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,
29 As he approached Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples on ahead.
30 saying, “Go into the village ahead of you; there, as you enter, you will find a colt tied on which no one yet has ever sat; untie it and bring it here.
30 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.
30 and said, “Go into the village ahead of you. As you enter it, you will find a young donkey tied there, on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it here.
30 "Go into the village ahead of you," he said. "As you enter, you will find a colt tied up that no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it along.
31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of it.’”
31 And if any man ask you, Why do ye loose him? thus shall ye say unto him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
31 If anyone asks you, ‘Why are you untying it?’ say this: ‘The Lord needs it.’”
31 If anyone asks you why you are untying it, say this: "The Lord needs it.'"
31 If anybody asks you, ‘Why are you untying the colt?’ you will say, ‘The Lord needs it.’”
32 So those who were sent went away and found it just as He had told them.
32 And they that were sent went their way, and found even as he had said unto them.
32 So those who were sent went off and found it as Jesus had told them.
32 So those who were sent left and found the colt just as He had told them.
33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners thereof said unto them, Why loose ye the colt?
33 As they were untying the young donkey, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying the donkey?”
33 While they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?"
33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, “Why are you untying the colt?”
35 And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus thereon.
35 Then they brought the colt to Jesus and put their coats on it, and Jesus sat upon it.
36 As He was going, they were spreading their coats on the road.
36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
36 As he was riding along, people kept spreading their coats on the road.
37 As soon as He was approaching, near the descent of (U)the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of the disciples began to (V)praise God (p)joyfully with a loud voice for all the (q)miracles which they had seen,
37 And when he was come nigh, even now 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 that they had seen;
37 Now He came near the path down the Mount of Olives, and the whole crowd of the disciples began to praise God joyfully with a loud voice for all the miracles they had seen:
37 He was now approaching the descent from the Mount of Olives. The whole crowd of disciples began to rejoice and to praise God with a loud voice because of all the miracles they had seen.
37 As soon as He was approaching [Jerusalem], near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the entire multitude of the disciples [all those who were or claimed to be His followers] began praising God [adoring Him enthusiastically and] joyfully with loud voices for all the miracles and works of power that they had seen,
38 Saying, Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
38 They said, "How blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest heaven!"
39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said unto him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
39 Some of the Pharisees from the crowd told Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples.”
39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd told Jesus, "Teacher, tell your disciples to be quiet."
39 Some of the Pharisees from the crowd said to Him, “Teacher, rebuke Your disciples [for shouting these Messianic praises].”
40 And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.
40 He replied, "I tell you, if they were quiet, the stones would cry out!"
41 And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,
41 When he came closer and saw the city, he began to grieve over it:
41 As He approached Jerusalem, He saw the city and wept over it [and the spiritual ignorance of its people],
42 saying, “If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.
42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.
42 "If you had only known today what could have brought you peace! But now it is hidden from your sight,
42 saying, “If [only] you had known on this day [of salvation], even you, the things which make for peace [and on which peace depends]! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.
43 For 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,
43 because the days will come when your enemies will build walls around you, surround you, and close you in on every side.
44 And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
44 They will level you to the ground you and those who live within your city limits. They will not leave one stone on another within your walls, because you didn't recognize the time when you were visited."
44 and they will level you to the ground, you [Jerusalem] and your children within you. They will not leave in you one stone on another, all because you did not [come progressively to] recognize [from observation and personal experience] the time of your visitation [when God was gracious toward you and offered you salvation].”
45 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought;
45 Then Jesus went into the Temple and began to throw out those who were selling things.
46 Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.
46 He told them, "It is written, "My house is to be called a house of prayer,' but you have turned it into a hideout for bandits!"
47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him,
47 Then he began teaching in the Temple every day. The high priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people kept looking for a way to kill him,
47 He was teaching day after day in the temple [porches and courts]; but the chief priests and scribes and the leading men among the people were seeking [a way] to put Him to death,
48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him.
48 but they couldn't find a way to do it, because all the people were eager to hear him.
