“And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.”
King James Version (KJV)
19:4 And running before - With great earnestness. He climbed up - Notwithstanding his quality: desire conquering honour and shame.
Lu 19:4 Climbed up into a sycamore tree. A kind of mulberry fig with low branches. His shortness of stature and the crowd made this necessary if he would see Jesus.
