25:25 so 1 I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. See, you have what is yours.’ 25:26 But his master answered, 2 ‘Evil and lazy slave! So you knew that I harvest where I didn’t sow and gather where I didn’t scatter? 25:27 Then you should have deposited my money with the bankers, 3 and on my return I would have received my money back with interest! 4
1 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated.
2 tn Grk “But answering, his master said to him.” This is somewhat redundant and has been simplified in the translation.
3 tn For the translation “deposited my money with the bankers,” see L&N 57.216.
4 sn That is, “If you really feared me you should have done a minimum to get what I asked for.”
