The Holy Gospel According to Matthew   25: 14-20

25:14 For it is like a man setting out on a long journey, who called his servants and delivered to them his goods.
25:15 And to one he gave five talents, and to another two, yet to another he gave one, to each according to his own ability. And promptly, he set out.
25:16 Then he who had received five talents went out, and he made use of these, and he gained another five.
25:17 And similarly, he who had received two gained another two.
25:18 But he who had received one, going out, dug into the earth, and he hid the money of his lord.
25:19 Yet truly, after a long time, the lord of those servants returned and he settled accounts with them.
25:20 And when he who had received five talents approached, he brought another five talents, saying: ‘Lord, you delivered five talents to me. Behold, I have increased it by another five.’
