Matthew 24:45-47

The Faithful and Wise Slave

24:45 “Who then is the faithful and wise slave, 1  whom the master has put in charge of his household, to give the other slaves 2  their food at the proper time? 24:46 Blessed is that slave whom the master finds at work 3  when he comes. 24:47 I tell you the truth, 4  the master 5  will put him in charge of all his possessions.

1 tn See the note on the word “slave” in 8:9.

2 tn Grk “give them.”

3 tn That is, doing his job, doing what he is supposed to be doing.

4 tn Grk “Truly (ἀμήν, amhn), I say to you.”

5 tn Grk “he”; the referent (the master) has been specified in the translation for clarity.
