(24) As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him. (25) Since he was not able to pay, the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold to repay the debt. (26) “The servant fell on his knees before him. Be patient with me, he begged, and I will pay back everything. (27) The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go. (28) But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denari. He grabbed him and began to choke him. Pay back what you owe me! he demanded. (29) His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, Be patient with me, and I will pay you back. (30) But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. (31) When the other servants saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed and went and told their master everything that had happened. (32) Then the master called the servant in, You wicked servant, he said, I canceled all that debt of your because you begged me to. Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you? (34) In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all the owed.
