CEB 14 “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who was leaving on a trip. He called his servants and handed his possessions over to them. NIV 14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. CEB 15 To one he gave five valuable coins, and to another he gave two, and to another he gave one. He gave to each servant according to that servant's ability. Then he left on his journey. NIV 15 To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag,each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. CEB 16 “After the man left, the servant who had five valuable coins took them and went to work doing business with them. He gained five more. NIV 16 The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more. CEB 17 In the same way, the one who had two valuable coins gained two more. NIV 17 So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more. CEB 18 But the servant who had received the one valuable coin dug a hole in the ground and buried his master's money. NIV 18 But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money. CEB 19 “Now after a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. NIV 19 “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. CEB 20 The one who had received five valuable coins came forward with five additional coins. He said, ‘Master, you gave me five valuable coins. Look, I've gained five more.' NIV 20 The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’ CEB 21 “His master replied, ‘Excellent! You are a good and faithful servant! You've been faithful over a little. I'll put you in charge of much. Come, celebrate with me.' NIV 21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ CEB 22 “The second servant also came forward and said, ‘Master, you gave me two valuable coins. Look, I've gained two more.' NIV 22 “The man with two bags of gold also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.’ CEB 23 “His master replied, ‘Well done! You are a good and faithful servant. You've been faithful over a little. I'll put you in charge of much. Come, celebrate with me.' NIV 23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’ CEB 24 “Now the one who had received one valuable coin came and said, ‘Master, I knew that you are a hard man. You harvest grain where you haven't sown. You gather crops where you haven't spread seed. NIV 24 “Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. CEB 25 So I was afraid. And I hid my valuable coin in the ground. Here, you have what's yours.' NIV 25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ CEB 26 “His master replied, ‘You evil and lazy servant! You knew that I harvest grain where I haven't sown and that I gather crops where I haven't spread seed? NIV 26 “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? CEB 27 In that case, you should have turned my money over to the bankers so that when I returned, you could give me what belonged to me with interest. NIV 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. CEB 28 Therefore, take from him the valuable coin and give it to the one who has ten coins. NIV 28 “ ‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags. CEB 29 Those who have much will receive more, and they will have more than they need. But as for those who don't have much, even the little bit they have will be taken away from them. NIV 29 For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. CEB 30 Now take the worthless servant and throw him outside into the darkness.' “People there will be weeping and grinding their teeth. NIV 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
