168    The  UNFORGIVING  SERVANT  
Matt 18    Mark     Luke  
23 "Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king    
  who wished to settle accounts with his servants.    

24

When he began the reckoning,    
  one was brought to him     
  who owed him ten thousand talents;    

25

and as he could not pay,    
  his lord ordered him to be sold,    
  with his wife and children and all that he had,     
  and payment to be made.    

26

So the servant fell on his knees, imploring him,    
  'Lord, have patience with me,    
  and I will pay you everything.'    

27

And out of pity for him    
  the lord of that servant released him     
  and forgave him the debt.    

28

But that same servant,    
  as he went out,    
  came upon one of his fellow servants    
  who owed him a hundred denarii;    
  and seizing him by the throat he said,     
  'Pay me what you owe.'    

29

So his fellow servant fell down and besought him,    
  'Have patience with me    
  and I will pay you.'    

30

He refused    
  and went and put him in prison     
  till he should pay the debt.    

31

When his fellow servants saw what had taken place,    
  they were greatly distressed,    
  and they went    
  and reported to their lord all that had taken place.    

32

Then his lord summoned him and said to him,     
  'You wicked servant!    
  I forgave you all that debt    
  because you besought me;    

33

and should you not have had mercy     
  on your fellow servant,    
  as I had mercy on you?'     

34

And in anger    
  his lord delivered him to the jailers,    
  till he should pay all his debt.    

35

So also my heavenly Father will do to everyone of you     
  if you do not forgive you brother from your heart."
