    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 19:7

    To be guest with a man that is a sinner - Meaning either that he was a heathen, or, though by birth a Jew, yet as bad as a heathen, because of his unholy and oppressive office. See the note on Luke 7:37.

    Barnes' Notes on Luke 19:7

    Murmured - Found fault, complained.

    To be a guest - To remain with, or to be entertained by.

    A man that is a sinner - All publicans they regarded as great sinners, and the "chief" of the publicans, therefore, they regarded as especially wicked. It would appear also from Zacchaeus' confession that his character "had been" that of an oppressive man. But the people seemed to forget that he might be a penitent, and that the Messiah came to save that which was lost.

    Wesley's Notes on Luke 19:7

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