NIRV 9 Jesus went on to tell the people a story. "A man planted a vineyard," he said. "He rented it out to some farmers. Then he went away for a long time. NIV 9 He went on to tell the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. NIRV 10 "At harvest time he sent a servant to the renters. They were supposed to give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the renters beat the servant. Then they sent him away with nothing. NIV 10 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. NIRV 11 So the man sent another servant. They beat that one and treated him badly. They also sent him away with nothing. NIV 11 He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed. NIRV 12 The man sent a third servant. The renters wounded him and threw him out. NIV 12 He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out. NIRV 13 "Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What should I do? I have a son, and I love him. I will send him. Maybe they will respect him.' NIV 13 "Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.' NIRV 14 "But when the renters saw the son, they talked the matter over. 'This is the one who will receive all the owner's property someday,' they said. 'Let's kill him. Then everything will be ours.' NIV 14 "But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. 'This is the heir,' they said. 'Let's kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.' NIRV 15 So they threw him out of the vineyard.

NIRV 16 He will come and kill them. He will give the vineyard to others." When the people heard this, they said, "We hope this never happens!" NIV 16 He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others." When the people heard this, they said, "May this never be!" NIRV 17 Jesus looked right at them and said, "Here is something I want you to explain the meaning of. It is written, " 'The stone the builders didn't accept has become the most important stone of all.' (Psalm 118:22) NIV 17 Jesus looked directly at them and asked, "Then what is the meaning of that which is written: " 'The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone ' ? NIRV 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces. But the stone will crush anyone it falls on." NIV 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed." NIRV 19 The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest Jesus at once. They knew he had told that story against them. But they were afraid of the people.
