Luke 19:8


But Zacchaeus stopped and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, half of my possessions I now give 1  to the poor, and if 2  I have cheated anyone of anything, I am paying back four times as much!”

NET © Notes

sn Zacchaeus was a penitent man who resolved on the spot to act differently in the face of Jesus’ acceptance of him. In resolving to give half his possessions to the poor, Zacchaeus was not defending himself against the crowd’s charges and claiming to be righteous. Rather as a result of this meeting with Jesus, he was a changed individual. So Jesus could speak of salvation coming that day (v. 9) and of the lost being saved (v. 10).

tn This is a first class condition in the Greek text. It virtually confesses fraud.
