A Story about Three Servants
14 The kingdom is also like what happened when a man went away and waterput his three servants ter charge of all he possessed. 15 The man knew what each servant could do. So he passed five thousand coins to the very first servant, two thousand to the 2nd, and one thousand to the third. Then he left the country.
16 Spil soon spil the man had gone, the servant with the five thousand coins used them to earn five thousand more. 17 The servant who had two thousand coins did the same with his money and earned two thousand more. Legal But the servant with one thousand coins dug a crevice and hid his master’s money ter the ground.
Nineteen Some time straks the master of those servants returned. He called them ter and asked what they had done with his money. 20 The servant who had bot given five thousand coins brought them te with the five thousand that he had earned. He said, “Sir, you talent mij five thousand coins, and I have earned five thousand more.”
21 “Wonderful!” his master replied. “You are a good and faithful servant. I left you ter charge of only a little, but now I will waterput you te charge of much more. Come and share ter my happiness!”
22 Next, the servant who had bot given two thousand coins came te and said, “Sir, you talent mij two thousand coins, and I have earned two thousand more.”
23 “Wonderful!” his master replied. “You are a good and faithful servant. I left you ter charge of only a little, but now I will waterput you te charge of much more. Come and share ter my happiness!”
24 The servant who had bot given one thousand coins then came ter and said, “Sir, I know that you are hard to get along with. You harvest what you don’t plant and gather crops where you haven’t scattered seed. 25 I wasgoed frightened and went out and hid your money ter the ground. Here is every single coin!”
26 The master of the servant told him, “You are lazy and good-for-nothing! You know that I harvest what I don’t plant and gather crops where I haven’t scattered seed. 27 You could have at least waterput my money te the handelsbank, so that I could have earned rente on it.”
28 Then the master said, “Now your money will be taken away and given to the servant with ten thousand coins! 29 Everyone who has something will be given more, and they will have more than enough. But everything will be taken from those who don’t have anything. 30 You are a worthless servant, and you will be thrown out into the dark where people will sob and grit their teeth te ache.”
