24 And he said to those who stood by, 'Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has ten minas.' 24 "Then he said to those standing by, 'Take his mina away from him and give it to the one who has ten minas.'
25 (But they said to him, 'Master, he has ten minas.') 25 " 'Sir,' they said, 'he already has ten!'
26 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. 26 "He replied, 'I tell you that to everyone who has, more will be given, but as for the one who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away.

31 And if anyone asks you, 'Why are you loosing it?' thus you shall say to him, 'Because the Lord has need of it.' " 31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it.' "
32 So those who were sent went their way and found it just as He had said to them. 32 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them.
33 But as they were loosing the colt, the owners of it said to them, "Why are you loosing the colt?" 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?"
