The King James Version Bible

Matthew 25:26-30

  1. His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed:

  2. Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

  3. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

  4. For 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.

  5. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
