And again he sent other servants, saying; Speak to those who have been called, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatling are slain, and all things are ready: come to the marriage. And they being careless, went away, one to his farm, and another to his merchandise:

For many are called, but few elected.

And they hearing these things, proceeding, He spoke a parable, because he is nigh unto Jerusalem, and they think the kingdom of God is about to be made manifest immediately. Then He said, A certain nobleman went to a far country, to receive for himself a kingdom, and return. And calling his ten servants, he gave to them ten pounds, and said to them, Operate till I come. read more.
But his citizens continued to hate him, and sent an embassy after him, saying, We do not wish this man to rule over us. And it came to pass, when he returned, having received the kingdom, and he said, that those servants should be called, to whom he had given the money, in order that he might know what each one had gained by their merchandise. And the first came, saying, Lord, thy pound has gained ten pounds. And he said to him, Well done, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in the least, have thou authority over ten cities. And the second one came, saying, Lord, thy pound has gained five pounds. And he also said to him, Be thou over five cities. And the other one came, saying, Lord, behold, thy pound, which I had laid away in a napkin: for I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that which thou hadst not laid down, and thou reapest that which thou hast not sown. And he says to him, Out of thine own mouth I will judge thee, thou wicked servant. Didst thou know that I am an austere man, taking up what I have not laid down, and reaping what I have not sown? Wherefore indeed didst thou not put my money in the bank? and having come I would have received the same with the product. And he said to the bystanders, Take the pound from him, and give it to the one having ten pounds. And they said to him, Lord, he has ten pounds. I say unto you, that to every one having it shall be given; and from every one not having, it shall be taken away even that which he hath. Moreover bring these my enemies, not wishing me to rule over them, hither, and slay them before me.

For the kingdom of the heavens is like unto a landlord man, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. And having agreed with the laborers for a denarion per day, sent them into his vineyard. And having gone out about the third hour, he saw others standing idle in the forum: read more.
and he said to them, Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they departed. Again having gone out about the sixth and ninth hours, he did likewise. And about the eleventh hour having gone out, he found others standing; and says to them, Why stand ye here idle all the day? They say to him, Because no one hired us. He says to them, Go ye also into the vineyard. And it being evening, the lord of the vineyard says to his steward, Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last even unto the first. And those having come about the eleventh hour, received each man a denarion. But the first having come supposed that they shall receive more; and themselves also received each one a denarion. But receiving it, they murmured against the landlord, saying, These labored one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, who bore the burden of the day and the heat. But he responding said to one of them, Comrade, I do thee no wrong; didst thou not agree with me for a denarion? Take thine own, and go. I wish to give unto this last one, even as unto thee. Is it not lawful for me to do as I wish with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? So the last shall be first, and first last.

He put forth another parable to them, saying, The kingdom of the heavens is like unto a man sowing good seed in his field. And while the men slept, an enemy came, and sowed tares in the midst of the wheat, and departed. And when the blades sprang up, and produced fruit, then the tares were also made manifest. read more.
And the servants of the landlord having come to him said, Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? whence then hath it tares? And he said to them, A hostile man did this. And the servants say to him, Then do you wish that we, having gone, may gather them? And he says, No; lest gathering the tares together you may at the same time along with them root up the wheat. Let both grow together till the harvest: and at the time of the harvest, I will say to the reapers, First gather the tares, and bind them in bundles, in order to burn them: and gather the wheat into my barn. And He submitted another parable to them, saying; The kingdom of the heavens is like unto a grain of mustard seed, which, a man having taken, sowed in his field; which indeed is the smallest of all seeds; and when it grows up, is the greatest of herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of heaven indeed lodge in its branches. And he spake another parable unto them; The kingdom of the heavens is like unto the leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, until the whole was leavened. Jesus spoke all of these things to the multitudes in parables; and without a parable He was not speaking to them: in order that the word spoken by Isaiah, the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables: I will make known the things which have been hidden from the foundation. Then leaving the multitudes, He came into the house: and His disciples came to Him saying; Explain to us the parable of the tares of the field. And He responding said, The one sowing the good seed is the Son of man; and the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the wicked one, and the enemy sowing them is the devil: and the harvest is the end of the age; and the reapers are the angels. Then as the tares are gathered and burnt up with fire; so it will be in the end of the age. The Son of man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and those who do iniquity, and will cast them into the furnace of the fire: and there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. But let the one having ears, hear. The kingdom of the heavens is like unto a treasure having been hidden in a field; which a man having found, concealed; and from his joy he goes and sells all things so many as he has, and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like unto a man seeking beautiful pearls: and having found one pearl of great price, having gone away he sold all things, so many as he had, and bought it. Again, the kingdom of the heavens is like unto a net cast into the sea, and gathering of every kind; which, when it was filled, drawing up on the shore, and sitting down, they gathered the good into baskets, and threw the bad away. So it will be in the end of the age: the angels will go forth, and will separate the wicked from the midst of the righteous, and will cast them into the furnace of the fire: and there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Do you understand all these things? They say to Him, Yea. And He said to them, Therefore every scribe having been discipled into the kingdom of the heavens is like unto a man who is a landlord, who bringeth out of his treasure things both new and old.

Therefore the kingdom of the heavens is like unto a kingly man, who wished to make a reckoning with his servants. And he beginning to reckon, one was brought to him owing him myriads of talents. And he not having wherewith to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and children, and all things so many as he had, and payment to be made. read more.
Then that servant falling down, continued to worship him, saying, Be patient with me, and I will pay you all. The lord of that servant, being moved with compassion, sent him away, and forgave him the debt. And that servant having gone out, found one of his fellow-servants, who owed him one hundred denaria: seized him, throttled him, saying, Pay me what you owe me. Then his fellow-servant falling down, continued to intreat him, saying, Be patient with me and I will pay thee. And he was not willing: but having gone away he cast him into prison, until he could pay that which was owing. Then his fellow-servants seeing those things which had taken place, were grieved exceedingly, and coming related to their lord all the things which transpired. Then his lord calling him says to him, Thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, since thou didst intreat me: did it not behoove thee also to have mercy on thy fellow-servant, as I had mercy on thee? And his lord being angry delivered him to the tormenters, until he should pay all that was due him. Thus my Heavenly Father will also do unto you, if you do not forgive each one his brother from your hearts.

And a certain one of those sitting together, hearing these things, said to Him, Happy is he whosoever eateth bread in the kingdom of God. And He said to him, A certain man made a great supper, and invited many; and at the hour, of the supper he sent his servants to say to those who were invited, Come; because they are now ready. read more.
And they all of one consent began to make excuse. The first said to him, I have bought a farm, and I have need having gone to see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove the same: I intreat thee have me excused. Another said, I have married a wife, and on this account I am not able to come. And the servant coming, announced these things to his lord. Then the land-lord being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and lead in hither the poor and maimed and blind and lame. And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou didst command, and yet there is room. And the lord said to the servant, Go out into the roads and hedges, and compel them to come in, in order that my house may be filled: for I say unto you, that no one of these men who have been invited shall taste of my supper.

Then shall the kingdom of the heavens be likened unto ten virgins, who taking their lamps, went out to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were foolish, and five were wise. For the foolish, taking their lamps, took no oil with themselves: read more.
and the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. But the bridegroom tarrying, they all nodded and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom! go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out. And the wise responded, saying, No, lest there may not be a sufficiency for us and you: go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And they going to buy, the bridegroom came; and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut. And afterwards the other virgins come, saying; Lord, lord, open unto us. And he responding, said; Truly I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, because you know neither the day nor the hour. For as a man going away, called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods, to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one; to each one according to his own ability; and departed. The one having received the five talents going immediately, operated with the same, and made other five talents. Likewise the one having received two gained two others. And he having received one, having gone away, digged up the earth, and buried the money belonging to his lord. And after a long time the lord of those servants comes, and makes a reckoning with them. And the one having received the five talents coming to him brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou didst deliver unto me five talents: behold, I have gained other five talents. His lord said to him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou wast faithful over few things, and I will make thee ruler over many things: come thou into the joy of thy lord. And the one having received two talents, coming to him, said, Lord, thou didst deliver unto me two talents: behold, I have gained other two talents. And his lord said to him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou wast faithful over few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: come thou into the joy of thy lord. And the one having received one talent also coming, said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strewn: and being afraid, having gone away, I hid thy talent in the earth: behold, thou hast thine own. And his Lord responding said to him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, didst thou know that I gather where I have not sown, and reap where I have not strewn? Therefore it behooved thee to put my money in the bank, and having come, I would receive my own with the product. Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to the one having ten talents. For to every one having it shall be given, and he shall superabound: but from the one not having shall be taken away even that which he has. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into the darkness which is without: and there shall be weeping and gnashing of the teeth.

The kingdom of the heavens is like a king-man, who made a marriage for his son. And he sent his servants to invite those who had been called to the marriage: and they were not willing to come. And again he sent other servants, saying; Speak to those who have been called, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatling are slain, and all things are ready: come to the marriage. read more.
And they being careless, went away, one to his farm, and another to his merchandise: but the rest, taking his servants, insulted, and slew them. And the king was angry; and sending his armies, he destroyed those murderers, and burnt up their cities. Then he says to his servants, The wedding is ready, but those having been invited were not worthy. Go ye therefore to crossings of the roads, and so many as you may find, invite to the marriage. And those servants having gone out into the ways, led in all whom they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was filled with guests. And the king having come in to look upon the guests, saw there a man not having on a wedding-garment. And he says to him, Comrade, how did you come in hither, not having the wedding-garment? And he was silent. Then the king said to the servants, Having bound him feet and hands, cast him into the darkness which is without; and there shall be weeping and gnashing of the teeth. For many are called, but few elected.

And He said to them; Whether does the light come, that it may be placed under a bushel, or under a bed? is it not that it may be placed on a candlestick? For there is nothing hidden which may not be made manifest; neither is there any thing concealed, but that it may come into the light. If any one has ears to hear, let him hear. read more.
And He said to them. See what you hear: with what measure you measure it shall be measured unto you: and it shall be added unto you who hear. For whosoever has, it shall be given unto him: and he who has not, it shall be taken from him even that which he has. And He said, Thus is the kingdom of God, as a man may cast seed on the ground; and he may sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed germinates and grows, as he does not know. The earth spontaneously brings forth fruit; first the blade, then the ear, then the full corn in the ear. And when the fruit may develop, immediately he thrusts in the sickle, because the harvest is at hand. And He said, To what may we liken the kingdom of God? or in what parable may we present it? Tis like a grain of mustard seed, which when it may be sown upon the earth, is the smallest of all seeds which are upon the earth, and when it may be sowed, it springs up, and becomes the greatest of herbs, and produces great branches; so that the birds of the heavens are able to lodge under its shadow. And in many such parables He continued to speak the word to them, as they were able to hear. And without a parable He did not speak to them: and He privately expounded all things to His disciples.

Then He said, To what is the kingdom of God like? and to what shall I liken it? It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man having taken, cast into his garden; and it grew, and became a tree; and the birds of heaven lodged in its branches. And again He said, To what shall I liken the kingdom of God? read more.
It is like leaven, which a woman having taken, hid in three measures of meal, until the whole was leavened.
