21:33Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
21:34And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
21:35And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
21:36Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
21:37But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
21:38But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
21:39And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
21:40When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
21:41They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
21:42Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
21:43Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
21:44And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
12:1And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
12:2And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
12:3And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
12:4And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
12:5And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
12:6Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
12:7But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.
12:8And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
12:9What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
12:10And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
12:11This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
12:12And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.
20:9Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.
20:10And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.
20:11And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.
20:12And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.
20:13Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him.
20:14But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.
20:15So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?
20:16He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.
20:17And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
20:18Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
