Parable of the Unmerciful Servant - Matthew 18:21 - 18:35
18:21. Then Peter came to Jesus and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother offend against me, and I forgive him? Until seven times?”
18:22. Jesus said to him, “I say to you, not seven times, but seventy times seven times.
18:23. “Therefore the Kingdom of Heaven can be compared to a king who would take an account of his servants.
18:24. “When he had begun to take the account, one was brought to him that owed him ten thousand talents.
Talents. . .A talent was seven hundred and fifty ounces of silver; a talent was 6000 days wages, so ten thousand talents would be roughly 164,383 years' wages.
18:25. “As he did not have the means to pay it, his lord commanded that he should be sold with his wife, his children, and all that he had to make the payment.
18:26. “But that servant fell down and besought him, saying, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.'
18:27. “The lord of that servant, being moved with pity, let him go and forgave him the debt.
18:28. “But when that servant had gone out, he found one of his fellow-servants that owed him a hundred days' wages, and laying hold of him, he throttled him, saying, 'Pay what you owe.'
18:29. “His fellow-servant fell down and besought him, saying, 'Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.'
18:30. “But he would not, and went and cast him into prison until he paid the debt.
18:31. “Now his fellow servants, seeing what was done, were very much grieved, and they came and told their lord all that was done.
18:32. “Then his lord called him and said to him, 'You wicked servant, I forgave you all the debt because you besought me.
18:33. “'Should you not then have also had compassion on your fellow servant, even as I had compassion on you?'
18:34. “His lord, being angry, delivered him to the torturers until he paid all the debt.
18:35. “So also shall My heavenly Father do to each of you if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.”
