Matthew, the New Testament- 19 Para

Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh (25:13)

For [the kingdom of heaven is] as a man travelling into a far country, [who] called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods (25:14)

And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey (25:15)

Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made [them] other five talents (25:16)

And likewise he that [had received] two, he also gained other two (25:17)

But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money (25:18)

After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them (25:19)

And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more (25:20)

His lord said unto him, Well done, [thou] good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. (25:21) com1

He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them (25:22)

His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord (25:23)

Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strowed: (25:24)

And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, [there] thou hast [that is] thine (25:25)

His lord answered and said unto him, [Thou] wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strowed: (25:26)

Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and [then] at my coming I should have received mine own with usury (25:27)

Take therefore the talent from him, and give [it] unto him which hath ten talents (25:28)

For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath (25:29)

And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth (25:30)

When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: (25:31) com2
