Luk 19:4 And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that [way].

Luk 19:6 And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.
Luk 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.
Luk 19:8 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.
Luk 19:9 And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham.
Luk 19:10 For the Son of man is

Luk 2:45 And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
Luk 2:46 And it came to pass, that after three days
they found him in the temple
, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.
Luk 2:47 And all that heard
him were astonished at his understanding and answers
Luk 2:48 And when they saw him,
they were amazed:
and his mother said unto him, Son, why hast thou thus dealt with us? behold, thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing.
Luk 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
Luk 2:50 And they understood not the saying which he spake unto them.
