New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
23 why didn't you deposit the money in the bank so I could at least get some interest on it?' 23 Why then didn't you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?'
24 Then turning to the others standing nearby, the king ordered, 'Take the money from this servant, and give it to the one who earned the most.' 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, master,' they said, 'that servant has enough already!' 25 " 'Sir,' they said, 'he already has ten!'
26 "'Yes,' the king replied, 'but to those who use well what they are given, even more will be given. But from those who are unfaithful, even what little they have will be taken away. 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.
27 And now about these enemies of mine who didn't want me to be their king -- bring them in and execute them right here in my presence.'" 27 But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them--bring them here and kill them in front of me.' "
28 After telling this story, Jesus went on toward Jerusalem, walking ahead of his disciples. 28 After Jesus had said this, he went on ahead, going up to Jerusalem.
29 As they came to the towns of Bethphage and Bethany, on the Mount of Olives, he sent two disciples ahead. 29 As he approached Bethphage and Bethany at the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples, saying to them,
30 "Go into that village over there," he told them, "and as you enter it, you will see a colt tied there that has never been ridden. Untie it and bring it here. 30 "Go to the village ahead of you, and as you enter it, you will find a colt tied there, which no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here.
31 If anyone asks what you are doing, just say, 'The Lord needs it.'" 31 If anyone asks you, 'Why are you untying it?' tell him, 'The Lord needs it.' "
32 So they went and found the colt, just as Jesus had said. 32 Those who were sent ahead went and found it just as he had told them.
33 And sure enough, as they were untying it, the owners asked them, "Why are you untying our colt?" 33 As they were untying the colt, its owners asked them, "Why are you untying the colt?"
