23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would ntake account of his servants. 24 And when he had begun to nreckon, one was brought unto him, which owed him ten thousand ||talents. 25 But forasmuch as he had not to pay, his lord commanded him to be osold, and his wife, and pchildren, and all that he had, and payment to be made. 26 The servant therefore fell down, and ||worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. 27 Then the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt. 28 But the same servant went out, and found one of his fellowservants, which owed him an hundred ||pence: and he laid hands on him, and took him by the throat, saying, Pay me that thou owest. 29 And his fellowservant fell down at his feet, and qbesought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. 30 And he would not: but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt. 31 So when his fellowservants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came and rtold unto their lord all that was done. 32 Then his lord, after that he had called him, said unto him, O thou wicked servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou qdesiredst me: 33 Shouldest not thou also have had compassion on thy fellowservant, even as I had pity on thee? 34 And his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due unto him. 35 sSo likewise shall my heavenly Father do also unto you, if ye from your hearts forgive not every one his brother their trespasses.
