“And likewise he that had receiued two, he also gained other two.”
King James Version (KJV)
14. ¶ For the kingdome of heauen is as a man trauailing into a farre countrey, who called his owne seruants, and deliuered vnto them his goods: 15. And vnto one he gaue fiue talents, to another two, and to another one, to euery man according to his seuerall ability, & straightway tooke his iourney. 16. Then hee that had receiued the fiue talents, went and traded with the same, and made them other fiue talents. 17. And likewise he that had receiued two, he also gained other two. 18. But hee that had receiued one, went and digged in the earth, and hid his lordes money. 19. After a long time, the lord of those seruants commeth, and reckoneth with them. 20. And so hee that had receiued fiue talents, came and brought other fiue talents, saying, Lord, thou deliueredst vnto me fiue talents, behold, I haue gained besides them, fiue talents moe.
