The Parable
of the Talents
Matthew 25:14-30

‘For it is as if a man, going on a journey,
summoned his slaves and entrusted his
property to them; to one he gave five
talents, to another two, to another one, to
each according to his ability. Then he went
away. The one who had received the five
talents went off at once and traded with
them, and made five more talents. In the
same way, the one who had the two talents
made two more talents. But the one who
had received the one talent went off and
dug a hole in the ground and hid his
master’s money. After a long time the
master of those slaves came and settled
accounts with them. Then the one who had
received the five talents came forward,
bringing five more talents, saying, “Master,
you handed over to me five talents; see, I
have made five more talents.” His master
said to him, “Well done, good and
trustworthy slave; you have been

trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in
charge of many things; enter into the joy of
your master.” And the one with the two
talents also came forward, saying, “Master,
you handed over to me two talents; see, I
have made two more talents.” His master
said to him, “Well done, good and
trustworthy slave; you have been
trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in
charge of many things; enter into the joy of
your master.” Then the one who had
received the one talent also came forward,
saying, “Master, I knew that you were a
harsh man, reaping where you did not sow,
and gathering where you did not scatter
seed; so I was afraid, and I went and hid
your talent in the ground. Here you have
what is yours.” But his master replied, “You
wicked and lazy slave! You knew, did you,
that I reap where I did not sow, and gather
where I did not scatter? Then you ought to
have invested my money with the bankers,
and on my return I would have received
what was my own with interest. So take the
talent from him, and give it to the one with
the ten talents. For to all those who have,
more will be given, and they will have an
abundance; but from those who have
nothing, even what they have will be taken
away. As for this worthless slave, throw him
into the outer darkness, where there will be
weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
