His fellow servant, therefore, falling down, began beseeching him, saying, Have patience with me! And I will pay thee. He, however, would not, but went away and cast him into prison, - until he should pay what was owing. His fellow-servants, therefore, seeing, the things that were done, were grieved exceedingly, - and went and made quite plain to their master all the things which had been done. Then, calling him near, his master saith unto him - O wicked servant! All that debt, forgave I thee, because thou didst beseech me. Was it not binding, upon thee also, to have mercy upon thy fellow-servant, as, I also, on thee, had mercy? And, provoked to anger, his master delivered him up to the torturers, until he should pay all that was owing. Thus, my heavenly Father also, will do unto you, if ye forgive not each one his brother, from your hearts.
