And he went out aboute the eleventhe houre and founde other stondynge ydell and sayde vnto them: Why stonde ye here all the daye ydell?
They sayde vnto hym: because no man hath hyred vs. He sayde to them: goo ye alsoo into my vyneyarde and whatsoever is right that shall ye receave.
When even was come the lorde of the vyneyarde sayde vnto hys steward: call the labourers and geve them their hyre beginnyng at ye laste tyll thou come to ye fyrste.
And they whiche were hyred aboute the eleventhe houre came and receaved every man a peny.
Then came ye fyrst supposyng yt they shuld receave moare: and they likewyse receaved every man a peny.
And when they had receaved it they murmured agaynst the good man of the housse
saying: These laste have wrought but one houre and thou hast made them equall vnto vs which have born ye burthe and heet of the daye.
He answered to one of the sayinge: frende I do the no wronge: dyddest thou not agre wt me for a peny?
Take that which is thy duty and go thy waye. I will geve vnto this last as moche as to the.
Ys it not lawfull for me to do as me listeth with myne awne? Ys thyne eye evyll because I am good?
Soo the laste shalbe fyrste and the fyrste shalbe laste. For many are called and feawe be chosen.
