CLV(i) 1 And entering, He passed through Jericho." 2 And lo! a man whose name is called Zaccheus was there, and he was a chief tribute collector, and he was rich." 3 And he sought to see Jesus, who He is, and was not able because of the throng, for he was little in stature." 4 And running before in front, he climbed up on a fig mulberry that he may see Him, seeing that He was about to be passing through that way." 5 And as He came to the place, looking up, Jesus perceived him and said to him, "Zaccheus! Hurry! Descend, for today I must remain in your house." 6 And hurrying, he descended, and entertains Him with rejoicing." 7 And perceiving it, all grumbled, saying that with a man who is a sinner He entered to put up for the night." 8 Now standing, Zaccheus said to the Lord, "Lo! the half of my possessions, Lord, I am giving to the poor! And if from anyone I get anything by blackmail, I am giving back fourfold." 9 Now Jesus said to him that "Today salvation came to this home, forasmuch as he also is a son of Abraham." 10 For the Son of Mankind came to seek and to save the lost." 11 Now at their hearing these things, adding, He spoke a parable because of His being near Jerusalem, and they are supposing that instantly the kingdom of God is about to be looming up." 12 He said, then, "A certain man, a noble, went into a far country, to obtain for himself a kingdom, and to return." 13 Now, calling ten of his slaves, he gives to them ten minas and said to them, 'Go into business while I am coming.'" 14 Now his citizens hated him, and they dispatch an embassy after him, saying, 'We do not want this man to reign over us!'" 15 And, obtaining the kingdom, it occurred at his coming back, that he said also to summon to him these slaves to whom he had given the silver, that he may know what business they do." 16 Now along came the first, saying, 'Lord, your mina earns ten minas.'" 17 And he said to him, 'Well done, surely, good slave! Seeing that you became faithful in the least, be having authority over ten cities.'" 18 And the second came, saying, 'Your mina, lord, makes five minas.'" 19 Now he said to this one also, 'And you, be over five cities.'" 20 And a different one came, saying, 'Lord, lo! your mina which I had, reserved in a handkerchief." 21 For I feared you, seeing that you are a harsh man. You are picking up what you do not lay down and reaping what you do not sow.'" 22 Now he is saying to him, 'Out of your mouth will I judge you, wicked slave! You were aware that I am a harsh man, picking up what I do not lay down and reaping what I do not sow." 23 And wherefore do you not give my silver to the bank, and I, coming, would utilize it together with interest?'" 24 And to those standing by he said, 'Take away the mina from him and give it to him who has the ten minas.'" 25 And they say to him, 'Lord, he has ten minas!'" 26 For I am saying to you that to everyone who has, shall be given, yet from him who has not, that also which he has shall be taken away from him." 27 However, these, my enemies, who are not willing for me to reign over them-lead them here and slay them in front of me.'" 28 And, saying these things, He went in front, going up into Jerusalem." 29 And it occurred, as He nears Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount called Olivet, He dispatches two of His disciples, 30 saying, "Go away into the village facing you, in which, entering, you will be finding a colt bound, on which no man ever is seated, and loosing it, be leading it to Me. " 31 And if anyone should be asking you, 'Wherefore are you loosing it?' thus shall you be declaring to him, that 'The Lord has need of it.'" 32 Now, coming away, those who have been dispatched found it according as He said to them." 33 Now, at their loosing the colt, its masters say to them, "Why are you loosing the colt? 34 Now they say that "The Lord has need of it." 35 And they led it to Jesus, and tossing their garments on the colt, they mount Jesus." 36 Now, at His going, they strewed their garments under Him in the road." 37 Now at His already drawing near to the descent of the mount of Olives, the entire multitude of the disciples begins rejoicing, praising God with a loud voice concerning all the powerful deeds which they perceived, 38 saying, "Blessed be the King coming in the name of the Lord! In heaven peace, and glory among the highest!" 39 And some of the Pharisees from the throng say to Him, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!" 40 And answering, He said to them, "I am saying to you that if ever these will be silent, the stones will be crying." 41 And as He draws near, perceiving the city, He laments over it, 42 saying that, "If you knew, even you, and surely in this day, what is for your peace-! Yet now it was hid from your eyes, 43 for the days will be arriving on you, and your enemies will be casting up a rampart about you, and will be surrounding you, and will be pressing you everywhere, 44 and will be leveling you and your children in you, and they will not be leaving a stone on a stone in you, because you knew not the era of your visitation." 45 And, entering into the sanctuary, He begins to cast out those who are selling and buying in it, 46 saying to them, "It is written, My house shall also be a house of prayer,' yet you make it a burglars' cave." 47 And He was teaching daily in the sanctuary, yet the chief priests and the scribes and the foremost of the people sought to destroy Him." 48 And they found not what they should be doing, for all the people, hearing, hung on Him."
