He said: "A very important man went to a country far away to be made a king and then to return home.
So he called ten of his servants and gave a coinn to each servant. He said, 'Do business with this money until I get back.'
But the people in the kingdom hated the man. So they sent a group to follow him and say, 'We don't want this man to be our king.'
"But the man became king. When he returned home, he said, 'Call those servants who have my money so I can know how much they earned with it.'
"The first servant came and said, 'Sir, I earned ten coins with the one you gave me.'
The king said to the servant, 'Excellent! You are a good servant. Since I can trust you with small things, I will let you rule over ten of my cities.'
"The second servant said, 'Sir, I earned five coins with your one.'
The king said to this servant, 'You can rule over five cities.'
"Then another servant came in and said to the king, 'Sir, here is your coin which I wrapped in a piece of cloth and hid.
I was afraid of you, because you are a hard man. You even take money that you didn't earn and gather food that you didn't plant.'
Then the king said to the servant, 'I will condemn you by your own words, you evil servant. You knew that I am a hard man, taking money that I didn't earn and gathering food that I didn't plant.
