25:20 The 7 one who had received the five talents came and brought five more, saying, ‘Sir, 8 you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’ 25:21 His master answered, 9 ‘Well done, good and faithful slave! You have been faithful in a few things. I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’ 25:22 The 10 one with the two talents also came and said, ‘Sir, you entrusted two talents to me. See, I have gained two more.’ 25:23 His master answered, ‘Well done, good and faithful slave! You have been faithful with a few things. I will put you in charge of many things. Enter into the joy of your master.’
