Luke 19:11-27

RSV 11 As they heard these things, he proceeded to tell a parable, because he was near to Jerusalem, and because they supposed that the kingdom of God was 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. RSV 12 He said therefore, "A nobleman went into a far country to receive a kingdom 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. RSV 13 Calling ten of his servants, he gave them ten pounds, and said to them, 'Trade with these till I come.' 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.' RSV 14 But his citizens hated him and sent an embassy 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.' RSV 15 When he returned, having received the kingdom, he commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know what they had gained by trading. 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. RSV 16 The first came before him, saying, 'Lord, your pound has made ten pounds more.' NIV 16 "The first one came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned ten more.' RSV 17 And he said to him, 'Well done, good servant! Because you have been faithful in a very little, you shall have 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.' RSV 18 And the second came, saying, 'Lord, your pound has made five pounds.' NIV 18 "The second came and said, 'Sir, your mina has earned five more.' RSV 19 And he said to him, 'And you are to be over five cities.' NIV 19 "His master answered, 'You take charge of five cities.' RSV 20 Then another came, saying, 'Lord, here is your pound, which I kept laid away in a napkin; NIV 20 "Then another servant came and said, 'Sir, here is your mina; I have kept it laid away in a piece of cloth. RSV 21 for I was afraid of you, because you are a severe 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.' RSV 22 He said to him, 'I will condemn you out of your own mouth, you wicked servant! You knew that I was a severe 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? RSV 23 Why then did you not put my money into the bank, and at my coming I should 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?' RSV 24 And he said to those who stood by, 'Take the pound from him, and give it to him who has the ten pounds.' 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.' RSV 25 (And they said to him, 'Lord, he has ten pounds!') NIV 25 " 'Sir,' they said, 'he already has ten!' RSV 26 'I tell you, that to every one who has will more be given; but from him who has not, even what he has will 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. RSV 27 But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them before me.'" 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.' "
