THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

25:24Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

25:25And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

25:26His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

25:27Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

25:28Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

25:29For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.

25:30And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Luke (Author Luke)

19:20And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

19:21For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

19:22And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

19:23Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

19:24And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

19:25(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

19:26For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.
