 310  Matt 25   Mark    255  Luke 19
      11 As they heard these things,
        he proceeded to tell a parable,
        because he was near to Jerusalem,
        and because they supposed
        that the kingdom of God was
        to appear immediately.
14 "For it will be   12 He said therefore:
  as when a man going on a journey     "A nobleman went into a far country
        to receive a kingdom
        and then return.
  called his servants   13 Calling ten of his servants
  and entrusted to them his property;       
15 to one he gave five talents,     he gave them ten pounds,
  to another two,      
  to another one,      
  each according to his ability.      
  Then he went away.     and said to them:
16 He who had received the five talents      
  went at once      
  and traded with them;     ' Trade with these
        till I come.'
  and he made five talents more.      
17 So also, he who had the two talents      
  made two talents more.      
18 But he who had received the one talent      
  went      
  and dug in the ground      
  and hid his master's money.      
      14 But his citizens hated him
        and sent an embassy after him,
        saying:
        ' We do not want this man
        to reign over us.'
19 Now, after a long time,      
  the master   15 When he returned,
        having received the kingdom,
  of those servants came     he commanded these servants
        to whom he had given the money,
        to be called to him,
        that he might know
  and settled accounts with them.     what they had gained by trading.
20 And he who had received the five talents   16 The first
  came forward     came before him,
  bringing five talents more,      
  saying:     saying:
  '<Lord>,     ' Lord,
  you delivered to me five talents;     your pound
  here, I have made five talents more.'     has made ten pounds more.'
21 His master said to him:   17 And he said to him:
  ' Well done, good and faithful servant!     ' Well done, good servant!
  You have been faithful     Because you have been faithful
  over a little,     over very little,
  I will set you     you shall have authority
  over much;     over ten cities.'
  enter into the joy of your master.'      
22 And he also who had the two talents   18 And the second
  came forward     came,
  saying:     saying:
  '<Lord>,     ' Lord,
  you delivered to me two talents;     your pound
  here, I have made two talents more.'     has made five pounds.'
23 His master said to him:   19 And he said to him:
  ' Well done, good and faithful servant!      
  You have been faithful      
  over a little,      
  I will set you over much;     'And you are to be over five cities.'
  enter into the joy of your master.'      
24 He also who had received the one talent   20 Then another
  came forward     came,
  saying:     saying:
  '<Lord,>     ' Lord,
        here is your pound
        which I kept laid away in a napkin;
  I knew   21 for I was afraid* of you,
  you to be a hard man,     because you are a severe man;
        you take up 
        what you did not* lay down
  reaping where you did not sow     and reap what you did not sow.'
  and gathering       
  where you did not* winnow;      
25 so I was afraid,*      
  and I went      
  and hid your talent in the ground.      
  Here, you have what is yours.'      
26 But his master answered him:   22 He <says> to him:
        ' I will condemn you 
        out of your own mouth,
  'You wicked and slothful servant!     you wicked servant!
  You knew that     You knew that
        I was a severe man
        taking up what I did not* lay down
  I reap where I have not sowed,     and reaping what I did not sow?
  and gather       
  where I have not* winnowed?      
27 Then you ought to have invested   22 Why then did you not put
  my money     my money
  with the bankers,     into the bank
  and at my coming     and at my coming
  I should have received my own     I should have collected it
  with interest.'     with interest?'
      24 And he said to those who stood by:
28 So take the talent from him     ' Take the pound from him
  and give it to him      and give it to him 
  who has the ten talents.'     who has the ten pounds.'
      25 And they said to him:
        ' Lord, he has ten pounds!'
      26 'I tell you that
29 For to everyone who has it will be given     to everyone who has it will be given
  and he will have abundance;      
  but from him who has not,     but from him who has not,
  even what he has will be taken away.     even what he has will be taken away.
30 And cast the worthless servant      
  into the outer darkness;      
  there men will weep      
  and gnash their teeth.' "      
      26 But as for those enemies of mine,
        who did not want me 
        to reign over them,
        bring them here
        and slay them before me.' "
