    Section XLIII.

    [1] 2947

    2947 Luke xii. 41.

    Simon Cephas said unto him, Our Lord, is it to us that thou hast spoken this [2] parable, or also to every man?  2948

    2948 Luke xii. 42a [Borg. ms. omits Luke xii. 42a]; Matt. xxiv. 45.

    Jesus said unto him, Who, thinkest thou, is the servant, the master of the house,2949

    2949 i.e., the steward.

    trusted with control,2950

    2950 Borg. ms. has trusted and faithful.  Doubtless we should supply diacritical points to the reading of Vat. ms., and translate trusted and wise.  Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary, however, has both and wise and the word translated with control, used in a different sense.

    whom his lord set over his [3] household, to give them their food in its season2951

    2951 Matt. xxiv. 46.

    Blessed is that servant, whom his [4] lord shall come and find having done so.  2952

    2952 Luke xii. 44a; Matt. xxiv. 47b.

    Verily I say unto you, He will set him [5] over all that he hath.  2953

    2953 Matt. xxiv. 48; Luke xii. 45b.

    But if that evil servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his [6] coming; 2954

    2954 Matt. xxiv. 49b.

    and shall begin to beat his servants and the maidservants of his lord, and [7] shall begin to eat and to drink with the drunken; 2955

    2955 Matt. xxiv. 50.

    the lord of that servant shall come [8] in the day that he thinketh not, and in the hour that he knoweth not, 2956

    2956 Matt. xxiv. 51a.

    and shall [Arabic, p. 163] judge him, and appoint his portion with the hypocrites, 2957

    2957 Luke xii. 46b.

    and with those that are not faithful2958

    2958 Matt. xxiv. 51b.

    there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    [9] 2959

    2959 Matt. xxv. 1.

    Then shall the kingdom of heaven be like unto ten virgins, those that took their [10] lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom and the bride2960

    2960 Matt. xxv. 2.

    Five of them were [11] wise, and five foolish.  2961

    2961 Matt. xxv. 3.

    And those foolish ones took their lamps, and took not with [12, 13] them oil2962

    2962 Matt. xxv. 4.

    but those wise ones took oil in vessels along with their lamps2963

    2963 Matt. xxv. 5.

    When then [14] the bridegroom delayed, they all slumbered and slept.  2964

    2964 Matt. xxv. 6.

    But in the middle of the night there occurred a cry, Behold, the bridegroom cometh!  Go forth therefore to [15, 16] meet him.  2965

    2965 Matt. xxv. 7.

    Then all those virgins arose, and made ready their lamps2966

    2966 Matt. xxv. 8.

    The foolish [17] said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.  2967

    2967 Matt. xxv. 9.

    But those wise answered and said, Perhaps2968

    2968 See § 10, 17, and § 4, 24, note.

    there will not be enough for us and you:  but go ye to [18] the sellers, and buy for yourselves.  2969

    2969 Matt. xxv. 10.

    And when they went away to buy, the bridegroom came; and those that were ready went in with him to the marriage feast:  and [19] the door was shut.  2970

    2970 Matt. xxv. 11.

    And at last those other virgins also came and said, Our Lord, [20] our Lord, open unto us.  2971

    2971 Matt. xxv. 12.

    He answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, [21] I know you not.  2972

    2972 Matt. xxv. 13.

    Watch then, for ye know not that day nor that hour.

    [22] 2973

    2973 Matt. xxv. 14.

    It is as a man, who went on a journey, and called his servants, and delivered unto [23] them his possessions.  2974

    2974 Matt. xxv. 15.

    And unto one he gave five talents,2975

    2975 cf. § 27, 2, note.

    and another two, and another [24] one; every one according to his strength; and went on his journey forthwith.  2976

    2976 Matt. xxv. 16.

    He [Arabic, p. 164] then that received the five talents went and traded with them, and gained [26] other five.  2977

    2977 Matt. xxv. 17.

    And so also he of the two gained other two.  2978

    2978 Matt. xxv. 18.

    But he that received [27] the one went and digged in the earth, and hid the money of his lord2979

    2979 Matt. xxv. 19.

    And after a long time the lord of those servants came, and took from them the account.  [28] 2980

    2980 Matt. xxv. 20.

    And he that received five talents came near and brought other five, and said, My lord, thou gavest me five talents:  lo, I have gained other five in addition to them.  [29] 2981

    2981 Matt. xxv. 21.

    His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant:  over a little hast [30] thou been faithful, over much will I set thee:  enter into the joy of thy lord2982

    2982 Matt. xxv. 22.

    And he that had the two came near and said, My lord, thou gavest me two talents:  lo, [31] other two have I gained in addition to them.  2983

    2983 Matt. xxv. 23.

    His lord said unto him, Good,2984

    2984 A Persian word.  The Vat. ms. omits it.

    thou faithful servant:  over a little hast thou been faithful, over much will I set thee:  enter [32] into the joy of thy lord2985

    2985 Matt. xxv. 24.

    And he also that received the one talent came forward and said, My lord, I knew thee that thou art a severe man, who reapest where thou [33] sowest not, and gatherest where thou didst not scatter:  2986

    2986 Matt. xxv. 25.

    and so I was afraid, and [34] went away and hid thy talent in the earth:  lo, thou hast what is thine.  2987

    2987 Matt. xxv. 26.

    His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest me [35] that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I did not scatter; 2988

    2988 Matt. xxv. 27.

    it was incumbent on thee to put my money to the bank,2989

    2989 Lit. table (cf. Peshitta).

    and then I should come and seek it with its [36] gains2990

    2990 Matt. xxv. 28.

    Take now from him the talent, and give it to him that hath ten talents.  [37] 2991

    2991 Matt. xxv. 29.

    Whosoever hath shall be given, and he shall have more:  but he that hath not, even [38] [Arabic, p. 165] what he hath shall be taken from him.  2992

    2992 Matt. xxv. 30.

    And the unprofitable servant, put him forth into the outer darkness:  there shall be the weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    [39, 40] 2993

    2993 Luke xii. 35.

    Your loins shall be girded, and your lamps lit; 2994

    2994 Luke xii. 36.

    and ye shall be like the people that are looking for their lord, when he shall return from the feast; so that, when [41] he cometh and knocketh, they may at once open unto him.  2995

    2995 Luke xii. 37.

    Blessed are those servants, whom their lord shall come and find attentive:  verily I say unto you, that he will gird his waist, and make them sit down, and pass through2996

    2996 cf. Peshitta (and Greek).

    them and serve [42] them.  2997

    2997 Luke xii. 38.

    And if he come in the second watch, or the third, and find thus, blessed are those servants.

    [43] 2998

    2998 Matt. xxv. 31.

    But when the Son of man cometh in his glory, and all his pure angels with him, [44] then shall he sit on the throne of his glory2999

    2999 Matt. xxv. 32.

    and he will gather before him all the nations, and separate them the one from the other, like the shepherd who separateth [45] the sheep from the goats; 3000

    3000 Matt. xxv. 33.

    and will set3001

    3001 Or, and setteth; but the Peshitta confirms the rendering given above.

    the sheep on his right, and the goats on his [46] left.  3002

    3002 Matt. xxv. 34.

    Then shall the King say to those that are at his right, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundations3003

    3003 cf. § 17, 17, note.

    of the world:  [47] 3004

    3004 Matt. xxv. 35.

    I hungered, and ye gave me to eat; and I thirsted, and ye gave me to drink; and I [48] was a stranger, and ye took me in; 3005

    3005 Matt. xxv. 36.

    and I was naked, and ye clothed me; and I [49] was sick, and ye visited me; and I was in prison, and ye cared for me.  3006

    3006 Matt. xxv. 37.

    Then shall those righteous say unto him, Our Lord, when saw we thee hungry, and fed thee? [50] or thirsty, and gave thee to drink?  3007

    3007 Matt. xxv. 38.

    And when saw we thee a stranger, and took [51] thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?  3008

    3008 Matt. xxv. 39.

    And when saw we thee sick, or imprisoned, and [52] cared for thee?  3009

    3009 Matt. xxv. 40.

    The King shall answer and say3010

    3010 Perfect tenses, as in Peshitta.

    unto them, Verily I say unto you, What [53] [Arabic, p. 166] ye did to one of these my brethren, the little ones, ye did unto me.  3011

    3011 Matt. xxv. 41.

    Then shall he say unto those that are on his left also, Depart from me, ye cursed, [54] into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his hosts3012

    3012 Matt. xxv. 42.

    I hungered, and ye fed me [55] not; and I thirsted, and ye did not give me to drink; 3013

    3013 Matt. xxv. 43.

    and I was a stranger, and ye took me not in; and I was naked, and ye clothed me not; and I was sick, and imprisoned, [56] and ye visited me not.  3014

    3014 Matt. xxv. 44.

    Then shall those also answer and say, Our Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or naked, or a stranger, or sick, or imprisoned, [57] and did not minister unto thee?  3015

    3015 Matt. xxv. 45.

    Then shall he answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, When ye did it not unto one of these little ones, ye did it not [58] unto me also.  3016

    3016 Matt. xxv. 46.

    And these shall go away into eternal punishment:  but the righteous into eternal life.
