41 Peter said, “Lord, are You addressing this parable to us, or ato everyone else as well?”
45 “But if that slave says in his heart, ‘My master 1will be a long time in coming,’ and begins to beat the slaves, both men and women, and to eat and drink and get drunk;
47 “And that slave who knew his master’s will and did not get ready or act in accord with his will, will areceive many lashes,
48 but the one who did not aknow it, and committed deeds worthy of 1a flogging, will receive but few. bFrom everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more.
