Parable #45 ~ Matthew 25:14-30 ~ Three servants given talents ~

“Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and
entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents of money, to another
two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went
on his journey. The man who had received the five talents went at once and put
his money to work and gained five more. So also, the one with the two talents
gained two more. But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a
hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.

“After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts
with them. The man who had received the five talents brought the other five.
‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five
more.’

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been
faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share
your master’s happiness!’

“The man with the two talents also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me
with two talents; see, I have gained two more.’
“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been
faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share
your master’s happiness!’

“Then the man who had received the one talent came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I
knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering
where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your
talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’

“His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest
where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then,
you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I
returned I would have received it back with interest.

“ ‘Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.
For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance.
Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw
that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and
gnashing of teeth.’
