Luke 20:9-19

ESV 9 And he began to tell the people this parable: "A man planted a vineyard and let it out to tenants and went into another country for a long while. MSG 9 Jesus told another story to the people: "A man planted a vineyard. He handed it over to farmhands and went off on a trip. He was gone a long time. ESV 10 When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, so that they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed. MSG 10 In time he sent a servant back to the farmhands to collect the profits, but they beat him up and sent him off empty-handed. ESV 11 And he sent another servant. But they also beat and treated him shamefully, and sent him away empty-handed. MSG 11 He decided to try again and sent another servant. That one they beat black and blue, and sent him off empty-handed. ESV 12 And he sent yet a third. This one also they wounded and cast out. MSG 12 He tried a third time. They worked that servant over from head to foot and dumped him in the street. ESV 13 Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son; perhaps they will respect him.' MSG 13 "Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'I know what I'll do: I'll send my beloved son. They're bound to respect my son.' ESV 14 But when the tenants saw him, they said to themselves, 'This is the heir. Let us kill him, so that the inheritance may be ours.' MSG 14 "But when the farmhands saw him coming, they quickly put their heads together. 'This is our chance - this is the heir! Let's kill him and have it all to ourselves.' ESV 15 And they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? MSG 15 They killed him and threw him over the fence. "What do you think the owner of the vineyard will do? ESV 16 He will come and destroy those tenants and give the vineyard to others." When they heard this, they said, "Surely not!" MSG 16 Right. He'll come and clean house. Then he'll assign the care of the vineyard to others." Those who were listening said, "Oh, no! He'd never do that!" ESV 17 But he looked directly at them and said, "What then is this that is written: "'The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone'? MSG 17 But Jesus didn't back down. "Why, then, do you think this was written: That stone the masons threw out - It's now the cornerstone!? ESV 18 Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, and when it falls on anyone, it will crush him." MSG 18 "Anyone falling over that stone will break every bone in his body; if the stone falls on anyone, it will be a total smashup." ESV 19 The scribes and the chief priests sought to lay hands on him at that very hour, for they perceived that he had told this parable against them, but they feared the people. MSG 19 The religion scholars and high priests wanted to lynch him on the spot, but they were intimidated by public opinion. They knew the story was about them.
