(But they said to him, 'Master, he has ten minas.')
For I say to you, that to everyone who has will be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.

And if anyone asks you, 'Why are you loosing it?' thus you shall say to him, 'Because the Lord has need of it.' "
So those who were sent went their way and found it just as He had said to them.
But as they were loosing the colt, the owners of it said to them, "Why are you loosing the colt?"
