Luke 19


19:1 And [Jesus] entered and passed through Jericho.
19:2 And behold, [there was] a man named Zaccheus, who was the
 chief among the publicans, and he was rich.
19:3 And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for
 the crowd, because he was little of stature.
19:4 And he ran before, and climbed up upon a sycamore-tree to
 see him; for he was to pass that [way].
19:5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw
 him, and said to him, Zaccheus, make haste, and come down: for
 to-day I must abide at thy house.
19:6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him
 joyfully.
19:7 And when they saw [it], they all murmured, saying, That he
 was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.
19:8 And Zaccheus stood, and said to 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]
 four-fold.
19:9 And Jesus said to him, This day is salvation come to this
 house, forasmuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which
 was lost.
19:11 And as they heard these things, he added and spoke a
 parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they
 thought that the kingdom of God would immediately appear.
19:12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far
 country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.
19:13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten
 pounds, and said to them, Occupy till I come.
19:14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him,
 saying, We will not have this [man] to reign over us.
19:15 And it came to pass, that when he had returned, having
 received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be
 called to him, to whom he had given the money, that he might
 know how much every man had gained by trading.
19:16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained
 ten pounds.
19:17 And he said to him, Well, thou good servant: because thou
 hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over
 ten cities.
19:18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained
 five pounds.
19:19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five
 cities.
19:20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, [here is] thy
 pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:
19:21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou
 takest up what thou layedst not down, and reapest what thou
 didst not sow.
19:22 And he saith to him, Out of thy own mouth will I judge
 thee, [thou] wicked servant. Thou knewest me to be an austere
 man, taking up what I laid not down, and reaping what I did not
 sow:
19:23 Why then gavest thou not my money into the bank, that at
 my coming I might have required my own with interest?
19:24 And he said to them that stood by, Take from him the
 pound, and give [it] to him that hath ten pounds.
19:25 (And they said to him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)
19:26 For I say to you, That to every one who hath shall be
 given; and from him that hath not, even what he hath shall be
 taken away from him.
19:27 But those my enemies, who would not that I should reign
 over them, bring hither, and slay [them] before me.
19:28 And when he had thus spoken, he went before, ascending
 towards Jerusalem.
19:29 And it came to pass, when he had come nigh to Bethphage
 and Bethany, at the mount called [the mount] of Olives, he sent
 two of his disciples,
19:30 Saying, Go ye into the village over against [you]; in
 which at your entering ye will find a colt tied, on which yet
 never man sat: loose him, and bring [him hither].
19:31 And if any man shall ask you, Why do ye loose [him]? thus
 shall ye say to him, Because the Lord hath need of him.
19:32 And they that were sent, went and found even as he had
 said to them.
19:33 And as they were loosing the colt, the owners of it said
 to them, Why loose ye the colt?
19:34 And they said, The Lord hath need of him.
19:35 And they brought him to Jesus: and they cast their
 garments upon the colt, and they set Jesus upon him.
19:36 And as he went, they spread their clothes in the way.
19:37 And when he had 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.
19:38 Saying, Blessed [be] the King that cometh in the name of
 the Lord: Peace in heaven, and glory in the highest.
19:39 And some of the Pharisees from among the multitude said to
 him, Master, rebuke thy disciples.
19:40 And he answered and said to them, I tell you, that if
 these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry
 out.
19:41 And when he had come near, he beheld the city, and wept
 over it,
19:42 Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this
 thy day, the things [which belong] to thy peace! but now they
 are hid from thy eyes.
19:43 For the days shall come upon thee, that thy enemies shall
 cast a trench about thee, and encompass thee, and keep thee in
 on every side,
19:44 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.
19:45 And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them
 that sold in it, and them that bought,
19:46 Saying to them, It is written, My house is the house of
 prayer, but ye have made it a den of thieves.
19:47 And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests,
 and the scribes, and the chief of the people sought to destroy
 him,
19:48 And could not find what they might do: for all the people
 were very attentive to hear him.
