24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, eI knew thee that thou art an fhard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast gthat is thine. 26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and hslothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the iexchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 kFor 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. 30 And lcast ye the munprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
