THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Job (Author Job and/or Moses)

7:1Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?

7:2As a servant earnestly desireth the shadow, and as an hireling looketh for the reward of his work:

7:3So am I made to possess months of vanity, and wearisome nights are appointed to me.

14:1Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.

14:6Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day.

Matthew (Author Matthew)

20:1For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.

20:2And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.

20:3And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,

20:4And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way.

20:5Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.

20:6And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?

20:7They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.

20:8So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.

20:9And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.

20:10But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.

20:11And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,

20:12Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day.

20:13But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny?

20:14Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee.

20:15Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good?

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.

John (Author John)

10:12But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

10:13The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
