23 “Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished ato settle accounts with his servants.1 24 When he began to settle, one was brought to him who owed him bten thousand ctalents.2 25 dAnd since he could not pay, his master ordered him eto be sold, with his wife and fchildren and all that he had, and payment to be made.
