GNT 14 "At that time the Kingdom of heaven will be like this. Once there was a man who was about to leave home on a trip; he called his servants and put them in charge of his property. NIV 14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. GNT 15 He gave to each one according to his ability: to one he gave five thousand gold coins, to another he gave two thousand, and to another he gave one thousand. Then he left on his trip. 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. GNT 16 The servant who had received five thousand coins went at once and invested his money and earned another five thousand. 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. GNT 17 In the same way the servant who had received two thousand coins earned another two thousand. NIV 17 So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more. GNT 18 But the servant who had received one thousand coins went off, dug a hole in the ground, and hid 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. GNT 19 "After a long time the master of those servants came back and settled accounts with them. NIV 19 “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. GNT 20 The servant who had received five thousand coins came in and handed over the other five thousand. "You gave me five thousand coins, sir,' he said. "Look! Here are another five thousand that I have earned.' 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.’ GNT 21 "Well done, you good and faithful servant!' said his master. "You have been faithful in managing small amounts, so I will put you in charge of large amounts. Come on in and share my happiness!' 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!’ GNT 22 Then the servant who had been given two thousand coins came in and said, "You gave me two thousand coins, sir. Look! Here are another two thousand that I have earned.' 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.’ GNT 23 "Well done, you good and faithful servant!' said his master. "You have been faithful in managing small amounts, so I will put you in charge of large amounts. Come on in and share my happiness!' 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!’ GNT 24 Then the servant who had received one thousand coins came in and said, "Sir, I know you are a hard man; you reap harvests where you did not plant, and you gather crops where you did not scatter 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. GNT 25 I was afraid, so I went off and hid your money in the ground. Look! Here is what belongs to you.' NIV 25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ GNT 26 "You bad and lazy servant!' his master said. "You knew, did you, that I reap harvests where I did not plant, and gather crops where I did not scatter 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? GNT 27 Well, then, you should have deposited my money in the bank, and I would have received it all back with interest when I returned. 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. GNT 28 Now, take the money away from him and give it to the one who has ten thousand coins. NIV 28 “ ‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags. GNT 29 For to every person who has something, even more will be given, and he will have more than enough; but the person who has nothing, even the little that he has will be taken away from him. 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. GNT 30 As for this useless servant - throw him outside in the darkness; there he will cry and gnash his teeth.' NIV 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
