35 As he approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. 36When he heard a crowd going by, he asked what was happening. 37They told him, Jesus of Nazareth* is passing by. 38Then he shouted, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me! 39Those who were in front sternly ordered him to be quiet; but he shouted even more loudly, Son of David, have mercy on me! 40Jesus stood still and ordered the man to be brought to him; and when he came near, he asked him, 41What do you want me to do for you? He said, Lord, let me see again. 42Jesus said to him, Receive your sight; your faith has saved you. 43Immediately he regained his sight and followed him, glorifying God; and all the people, when they saw it, praised God.
19He entered Jericho and was passing through it. 2A man was there named Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax-collector and was rich. 3He was trying to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was short in stature. 4So he ran ahead and climbed a sycomore tree to see him, because he was going to pass that way. 5When Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, Zacchaeus, hurry and come down; for I must stay at your house today. 6So he hurried down and was happy to welcome him. 7All who saw it began to grumble and said, He has gone to be the guest of one who is a sinner. 8Zacchaeus stood there and said to the Lord, Look, half of my possessions, Lord, I will give to the poor; and if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I will pay back four times as much. 9Then Jesus said to him, Today salvation has come to this house, because he too is a son of Abraham.
