Revised Standard Version w/ Apocrypha (RSVA) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he began to speak to them in parables. "A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a pit for the wine press, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country. 1 He then began to speak to them in parables: "A man planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a pit for the winepress and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey.
2 When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, to get from them some of the fruit of the vineyard. 2 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants to collect from them some of the fruit of the vineyard.
3 And they took him and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed. 3 But they seized him, beat him and sent him away empty-handed.
4 Again he sent to them another servant, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully. 4 Then he sent another servant to them; they struck this man on the head and treated him shamefully.
5 And he sent another, and him they killed; and so with many others, some they beat and some they killed. 5 He sent still another, and that one they killed. He sent many others; some of them they beat, others they killed.
6 He had still one other, a beloved son; finally he sent him to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' 6 "He had one left to send, a son, whom he loved. He sent him last of all, saying, 'They will respect my son.'
7 But those tenants said to one another, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' 7 "But the tenants said to one another, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.'
8 And they took him and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. 8 So they took him and killed him, and threw him out of the vineyard.
9 What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants, and give the vineyard to others. 9 "What then will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.
10 Have you not read this scripture: 'The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner; 10 Haven't you read this scripture: " 'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone;
11 this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes'?" 11 the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes' ?"
