Matthew 25:14-30

CEB 14 “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who was leaving on a trip. He called his servants and handed his possessions over to them. NRS 14 "For it is as if a man, going on a journey, summoned his slaves and entrusted his property to them; CEB 15 To one he gave five valuable coins, and to another he gave two, and to another he gave one. He gave to each servant according to that servant's ability. Then he left on his journey. NRS 15 to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. CEB 16 “After the man left, the servant who had five valuable coins took them and went to work doing business with them. He gained five more. NRS 16 The one who had received the five talents went off at once and traded with them, and made five more talents. CEB 17 In the same way, the one who had two valuable coins gained two more. NRS 17 In the same way, the one who had the two talents made two more talents. CEB 18 But the servant who had received the one valuable coin dug a hole in the ground and buried his master's money. NRS 18 But the one who had received the one talent went off and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money. CEB 19 “Now after a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. NRS 19 After a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them. CEB 20 The one who had received five valuable coins came forward with five additional coins. He said, ‘Master, you gave me five valuable coins. Look, I've gained five more.' NRS 20 Then the one who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five more talents, saying, "Master, you handed over to me five talents; see, I have made five more talents.' CEB 21 “His master replied, ‘Excellent! You are a good and faithful servant! You've been faithful over a little. I'll put you in charge of much. Come, celebrate with me.' NRS 21 His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.' CEB 22 “The second servant also came forward and said, ‘Master, you gave me two valuable coins. Look, I've gained two more.' NRS 22 And the one with the two talents also came forward, saying, "Master, you handed over to me two talents; see, I have made two more talents.' CEB 23 “His master replied, ‘Well done! You are a good and faithful servant. You've been faithful over a little. I'll put you in charge of much. Come, celebrate with me.' NRS 23 His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.' CEB 24 “Now the one who had received one valuable coin came and said, ‘Master, I knew that you are a hard man. You harvest grain where you haven't sown. You gather crops where you haven't spread seed. NRS 24 Then the one who had received the one talent also came forward, saying, "Master, I knew that you were a harsh man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not scatter seed; CEB 25 So I was afraid. And I hid my valuable coin in the ground. Here, you have what's yours.' NRS 25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.' CEB 26 “His master replied, ‘You evil and lazy servant! You knew that I harvest grain where I haven't sown and that I gather crops where I haven't spread seed? NRS 26 But his master replied, "You wicked and lazy slave! You knew, did you, that I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I did not scatter? CEB 27 In that case, you should have turned my money over to the bankers so that when I returned, you could give me what belonged to me with interest. NRS 27 Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have received what was my own with interest. CEB 28 Therefore, take from him the valuable coin and give it to the one who has ten coins. NRS 28 So take the talent from him, and give it to the one with the ten talents. CEB 29 Those who have much will receive more, and they will have more than they need. But as for those who don't have much, even the little bit they have will be taken away from them. NRS 29 For to all those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away. CEB 30 Now take the worthless servant and throw him outside into the darkness.' “People there will be weeping and grinding their teeth. NRS 30 As for this worthless slave, throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
