Matthew 20:12

12 'These last workers put in only one easy hour, and you just made them equal to us, who slaved all day under a scorching sun.'

Matthew 20:12 In-Context

10 When those who were hired first saw that, they assumed they would get far more. But they got the same, each of them one dollar.
11 Taking the dollar, they groused angrily to the manager,
12 'These last workers put in only one easy hour, and you just made them equal to us, who slaved all day under a scorching sun.'
13 "He replied to the one speaking for the rest, 'Friend, I haven't been unfair. We agreed on the wage of a dollar, didn't we?
14 So take it and go. I decided to give to the one who came last the same as you.
