“And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.”
King James Version (KJV)
19:7 They all murmured - All who were near: though most of them rather out of surprise than indignation.
Lu 19:7 They all murmured. How often these complaints of Jesus stooping down at the company of sinners are recorded! Now, however, the crowd expected that at Jerusalem his kingdom would be proclaimed, but here he is the guest of the chief agent of the oppressive Roman tribute! Had Christ sought popularity he would never have gone with Zacchaeus.
