Matthew 24:45–51; Matthew 25:5; Matthew 25:19

45 Who then is vthe faithful and wwise servant,1 whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 xBlessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 47 Truly, I say to you, yhe will set him over all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked servant says to himself, My master zis delayed, 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants2 and eats and drinks with adrunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come bon a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know 51 and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place cthere will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


As the bridegroom fwas delayed, they all became drowsy and slept.


19 Now vafter a long time the master of those servants came and wsettled accounts with them.
