Matthew 25:14-30 For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two talents, and to another one talent; to every man according to his ability; and straightway took his journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made another five talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. But he that had received one went and dug in the earth, and hid his lord’s money. After a long time the lord of those servants came, and reckoned with them. And so he that had received five talents came and brought another five talents, saying, Lord, you gave me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord. He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, you gave me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter into the joy of your lord. Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew you that you are an hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not strawed: and I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the earth: so, there you have what is yours. His lord answered and said unto him, You wicked and slothful servant, you knew that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: you ought to have put my money with the bankers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with interest. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it to him which has ten talents. For unto every one that has more shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that has not shall be taken away even that which he has. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
