was a master of a household, who planted a vineyard, set a hedge about it,
dug a winepress in it, built a tower, leased it out to farmers, and went into
another country. 21:34 When the season for
the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the farmers, to receive his

took his servants, beat one, killed another, and stoned another. 21:36 Again, he sent other
servants more than the first: and they treated them the same way.
21:37 "But afterward
he sent to them his son, saying, 'They will respect my son.'
21:38 "But the
farmers, when they saw the son, said among themselves, 'This is the heir.
Come, let's kill him, and seize his inheritance.' 21:39 So they took him, and threw him out
of the vineyard, and killed him. 21:40 When therefore the lord of the vineyard
comes, what will he do to those farmers?"
21:41 They told him,
"He will miserably destroy those miserable men, and will lease out the
vineyard to other farmers, who will give him the fruit in its season."
21:42 Jesus said to them,
"Did you never read in the Scriptures,
stone which the
man planted a vineyard, put a hedge around it, dug a pit for the winepress,
built a tower, rented it out to a farmer, and went into another country. 12:2
When it was time, he sent a servant to the farmer to get from the farmer his
share of the fruit of the vineyard. 12:3 They took him, beat him, and sent
him away empty. 12:4 Again, he sent another servant to them; and they threw
stones at him, wounded him in the head, and sent him away shamefully treated.
12:5 Again he sent another; and they killed him; and many others, beating
some, and killing some. 12:6 Therefore still having one, his beloved son, he
sent him last to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.'
"But those farmers said among themselves,

They took him, killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard. 12:9 What
therefore will the lord of the vineyard do?
will come and destroy the farmers, and will give the vineyard to others.

man planted a vineyard,

the fruit of the vineyard. But the farmers beat him, and sent him away empty.
20:11 He sent yet another
servant, and they also beat him, and treated him shamefully, and sent him
away empty. 20:12 He sent yet a third,
and they also wounded him, and threw him out.
20:13 "The lord of
the vineyard said, 'What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. It may be
that seeing him, they will respect him.'
20:14 "But when the
farmers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, 'This is the heir.
Come, let's kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.' 20:15 They threw him out
of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore will the lord of the vineyard
do to them?
20:16 He will come and
