Matthew 18:21-35

CEB 21 Then Peter said to Jesus, "Lord, how many times should I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Should I forgive as many as seven times?" NRS 21 Then Peter came and said to him, "Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?" CEB 22 Jesus said, “Not just seven times, but rather as many as seventy-seven times. NRS 22 Jesus said to him, "Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times. CEB 23 Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like a king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. NRS 23 "For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves. CEB 24 When he began to settle accounts, they brought to him a servant who owed him ten thousand bags of gold. NRS 24 When he began the reckoning, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him; CEB 25 Because the servant didn't have enough to pay it back, the master ordered that he should be sold, along with his wife and children and everything he had, and that the proceeds should be used as payment. NRS 25 and, as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, together with his wife and children and all his possessions, and payment to be made. CEB 26 But the servant fell down, kneeled before him, and said, ‘Please, be patient with me, and I'll pay you back.' NRS 26 So the slave fell on his knees before him, saying, "Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.' CEB 27 The master had compassion on that servant, released him, and forgave the loan. NRS 27 And out of pity for him, the lord of that slave released him and forgave him the debt. CEB 28 “When that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him one hundred coins. He grabbed him around the throat and said, ‘Pay me back what you owe me.' NRS 28 But that same slave, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat, he said, "Pay what you owe.' CEB 29 “Then his fellow servant fell down and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I'll pay you back.' NRS 29 Then his fellow slave fell down and pleaded with him, "Have patience with me, and I will pay you.' CEB 30 But he refused. Instead, he threw him into prison until he paid back his debt. NRS 30 But he refused; then he went and threw him into prison until he would pay the debt. CEB 31 “When his fellow servants saw what happened, they were deeply offended. They came and told their master all that happened. NRS 31 When his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place. CEB 32 His master called the first servant and said, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you appealed to me. NRS 32 Then his lord summoned him and said to him, "You wicked slave! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. CEB 33 Shouldn't you also have mercy on your fellow servant, just as I had mercy on you?' NRS 33 Should you not have had mercy on your fellow slave, as I had mercy on you?' CEB 34 His master was furious and handed him over to the guard responsible for punishing prisoners, until he had paid the whole debt. NRS 34 And in anger his lord handed him over to be tortured until he would pay his entire debt. CEB 35 "My heavenly Father will also do the same to you if you don't forgive your brother or sister from your heart." NRS 35 So my heavenly Father will also do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother or sister from your heart."
