Luke 19:11-27

NAS 11 While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately. NIV 11 While they were listening to this, he went on to tell them a parable, because he was near Jerusalem and the people thought that the kingdom of God was going to appear at once. NAS 12 So He said, "A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return. NIV 12 He said: "A man of noble birth went to a distant country to have himself appointed king and then to return. NAS 13 "And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten minas and said to them, 'Do business with this until I come back.' NIV 13 So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. 'Put this money to work,' he said, 'until I come back.' NAS 14 "But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, 'We do not want this man to reign over us.' NIV 14 "But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him to say, 'We don't want this man to be our king.' NAS 15 "When he returned, after receiving the kingdom, he ordered that these slaves, to whom he had given the money, be called to him so that he might know what business they had done. NIV 15 "He was made king, however, and returned home. Then he sent for the servants to whom he had given the money, in order to find out what they had gained with it. NAS 16 "The first appeared, saying, 'Master, your mina has made ten minas more.' NIV 16 "The first one came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned ten more.' NAS 17 "And he said to him, 'Well done, good slave, because you have been faithful in a very little thing, you are to be in authority over ten cities.' NIV 17 " 'Well done, my good servant!' his master replied. 'Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.' NAS 18 "The second came, saying, 'Your mina, master, has made five minas.' NIV 18 "The second came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned five more.' NAS 19 "And he said to him also, 'And you are to be over five cities.' NIV 19 "His master answered, 'You take charge of five cities.' NAS 20 "Another came, saying, 'Master, here is your mina, which I kept put away in a handkerchief; NIV 20 "Then another servant came and said, 'Sir, here is your mina; I have kept it laid away in a piece of cloth. NAS 21 for I was afraid of you, because you are an exacting man; you take up what you did not lay down and reap what you did not sow.' NIV 21 I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. You take out what you did not put in and reap what you did not sow.' NAS 22 "He said to him, 'By your own words I will judge you, you worthless slave. Did you know that I am an exacting man, taking up what I did not lay down and reaping what I did not sow? NIV 22 "His master replied, 'I will judge you by your own words, you wicked servant! You knew, did you, that I am a hard man, taking out what I did not put in, and reaping what I did not sow? NAS 23 'Then why did you not put my money in the bank, and having come, I would have collected it with interest?' NIV 23 Why then didn't you put my money on deposit, so that when I came back, I could have collected it with interest?' NAS 24 "Then he said to the bystanders, 'Take the mina away from him and give it to the one who has the ten minas.' NIV 24 "Then he said to those standing by, 'Take his mina away from him and give it to the one who has ten minas.' NAS 25 "And they said to him, 'Master, he has ten minas already.' NIV 25 " 'Sir,' they said, 'he already has ten!' NAS 26 "I tell you that to everyone who has, more shall be given, but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. NIV 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. NAS 27 "But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence." NIV 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.' "
