Wesley's Notes for Luke 19:6


19:4 And running before - With great earnestness. He climbed up - Notwithstanding his quality: desire conquering honour and shame.

19:5 Jesus said, Zaccheus, make haste and come down - What a strange mixture of passions must Zaccheus have now felt, hearing one speak, as knowing both his name and his heart!

19:7 They all murmured - All who were near: though most of them rather out of surprise than indignation.

19:8 And Zaccheus stood - Showing by his posture, his deliberate, purpose and ready mind, and said, Behold, Lord, I give - I determine to do it immediately.
