5 "Again he went out about the asixth and the ninth hour, and did bthe same thing. 6 "And about the celeventh hour he went out and found others standing around; and he said to them, 'Why have you been standing here idle all day long?' 7 "They said to him, 'Because no one hired us.' He said to them, 'You go into the vineyard too.' 8 "When 1evening came, the downer of the vineyard said to his 2foreman, 'Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last group to the first.' 9 "When those hired about the eleventh hour came, each one received a edenarius. 10 "When those hired first came, they thought that they would receive more; fbut each of them also received a denarius. 11 "When they received it, they grumbled at the landowner, 12 saying, 'These last men have worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the 3scorching heat of the day.' 13 "But he answered and said to one of them, '4Friend, I am doing you no wrong; did you not agree with me for a denarius? 14 'Take what is yours and go, but I wish to give to this last man the same as to you. 15 'Is it not lawful for me to do what I wish with what is my own? Or is your 5eye genvious because I am hgenerous?'
