1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain King, which would take an account of his servants.
24 And when he had begun to reckon, one was brought unto him, which ought him [a]ten thousand talents.
25 And because he had nothing to pay, his lord commanded him to be sold, and his wife, and his children, and all that he had, and the debt to be paid.
26 The servant therefore fell down, and [b]worshipped him, saying, Lord, [c]refrain thine anger toward me, and I will pay thee all.
27 Then that servant’s lord had compassion, and loosed him, and forgave him the debt.
28 But when the servant was departed, he found one of his fellow servants which ought him an hundred pence, and he laid hands on him, and throttled him, saying, Pay me that thou owest.
29 Then his fellow servant fell down at his feet, and besought him, saying, Refrain thine anger toward me, and I will pay thee all.
30 Yet he would not, but went and cast him into prison, till he should pay the debt.
31 And when his other fellow servants saw what was done, they were very sorry, and came, and declared unto their lord all that was done.
32 Then his lord called him unto him, and said to him, O evil servant, I forgave thee all that debt, because thou prayedst me.
33 Oughtest not thou also to have had pity on thy fellow servant, even as I had pity on thee?
34 So his lord was wroth, and delivered him to the tormentors, till he should pay all that was due to him.
You know that WWJD or WWJS (do or say, are these real distinctions?) facile prompt to reflection which likely no one who might use that bumper sticker acronym could actually apply having not studied or even read much of what Jesus is claimed to have done or said?
Well, what exactly would Jesus do here? And what exactly is said here? That is, what's the advice?
Should we first ask questions about the participants in the parable? (Or maybe out first act of understanding might be to wonder what a parable does and why Jesus might have "spoken" this way.) What about the money here?
Well, what do you think?
