Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 19:2

And, behold, [there was] a man named Zacchaeus, which was the (a) chief among the publicans, and he was rich.

(a) The overseer and head of the publicans who were there together: for the publicans were divided into companies, as we may gather from many places in the orations of Cicero.

Cross-Reference Topical ResearchStrong's Concordance
the chief:
Αρχιτελωνης [Strong's G0754], rather, "a chief publican," or tax gatherer. Probably Zacchaeus, who appears from his name to have been a Jew, farmed the revenue of the district around Jericho, having others under him, who either rented of him smaller portions, or were employed as servants to collect the taxes.

and he:

Luke 18:24-27 And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! ... And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
2 Chronicles 17:5-6 Therefore the LORD stablished the kingdom in his hand; and all Judah brought to Jehoshaphat presents; and he had riches and honour in abundance. ... And his heart was lifted up in the ways of the LORD: moreover he took away the high places and groves out of Judah.
