Then he went away. At once <strong>16 </strong>the one who had received the five talents went off and traded with them and made five more talents. <strong>17 </strong>In the same way, the one who had the two talents made two more talents. <strong>18 </strong>But the one who had received the one talent went off and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money. <strong>19 </strong>After a long time the master of those slaves came and settled accounts with them. <strong>20 </strong>Then the one who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five more talents, saying, 'Master, you handed over to me five talents; see, I have made five more talents.' <strong>21 </strong>His master said to him, 'Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things; I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.' <strong>22 </strong>And the one with the two talents also came forward, saying, 'Master, you handed over to me two talents; see, I have made two more talents.' <strong>23 </strong>His master said to him, 'Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things; I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.' <strong>24 </strong>Then the one who had received the one talent also came forward, saying, 'Master, I knew that you were a harsh man, reaping where you did not sow and gathering where you did not scatter, <strong>25 </strong>so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.' <strong>26 </strong>But his master replied, 'You wicked and lazy slave! You knew, did you, that I reap where I did not sow and gather where I did not scatter? <strong>27 </strong>Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have received what was my own with interest. <strong>28 </strong>So take the talent from him, and give it to the one with the ten talents. <strong>29 </strong>For to all those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance, but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away. <strong>30 </strong>As for this worthless slave, throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'<br></p><p><br></p><p><em class="ms-rteFontSize-2">Photo by AbsolutVision on Unsplash.
