The wicked servant


 25:24  Then

[9] he which had received the one talent

[a.] came and said,

[11.] Lord [each of the three calls Jesus, Lord],

[aa.] I knew thee that thou art an hard man,

[111.] reaping where thou hast not sown, and

[112.] gathering where thou hast not strowed:

 25:25  And

[ab.] I was afraid [fear of money kept this man from fulfilling God’s will for him to be rich; it also cost him his soul] , and

[112.] [I] went and hid thy talent in the earth [none was used to fund the end-time harvest: he neither went himself nor sent anyone else out into the fields Jesus said were already white unto harvest]:

[aaa.] lo, [there] thou hast [that is] thine.

 25:26  [10] His lord answered and said unto him,

[a.] [Thou] wicked and slothful servant,

[11.] thou knewest [he knew the Word] that

[aa.] I reap where I sowed not, and

[ab.][I] gather where I have not strowed:

 25:27             [b.] Thou oughtest therefore

[11.] to have put my money [the talents represent money]

[aa.] to the exchangers, and

[111.] [then] at my coming

[aaa.] I should have received mine own with usury [I would have at least received the interest off  of my money].

 25:28             [c.] Take therefore the talent

[11.] from him, and

[12.] give [it] unto him

[aa.] which hath ten talents [now he has $220,000,000 to work with].

 25:29             [d.] For unto every one that hath

[11.] shall be given, and

[aa.] he shall have abundance:

[e.] but from him that hath not

[11.] shall be taken away

[aa.] even that which he hath.

 25:30  And

[f.] cast ye the unprofitable servant

[11.] into outer darkness:

[aa.] there shall be

[111.] weeping and

[112.] gnashing of teeth.


The judgment of the sheep and goat nations


 25:31  When

[1] the Son of man shall come [the second coming of Jesus]

[a.] in his glory, and

[b.] all the holy angels with him,

[2] then shall he sit [in a place of rest]

[a.] upon the throne of his glory:

 25:32  And

[3] before him shall be gathered

[a.] all nations: and

[4] he shall separate them

[a.] one from another,

[b.] as a shepherd divideth [his]

[11.] sheep from the goats:

 25:33  And

[5] he shall set the sheep [there will be sheep and goat nations for Jesus to judge]

[a.] on his right hand, but

[6] [he shall set] the goats

[a.] on the left.
