SERMON XXXIX.

PARABLE OF THE TALENTS.

EW xxv. 14—30.-For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling

into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto

them his goods. And unto one he gave five talents, to another two,

and to another one; to every man according to his several ability;

and straitway took his journey. Then he that had received the five

talents, went and traded with the same, and made them other five

talents. And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other

two. But he that had received one, went and digged in the earth, and

hid his lord's money. After a long time the lord of those servants

cometh, and reckoneth with them. And so he that had received five

talents, came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deli-

veredst unto me five talents : behold, I have gained besides them five

talents more. His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and

faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will

make thee ruler over many things : enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

He also that had received two talents came, and said, Lord, thou

deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other

talents beside them. His lord said unto him, Well done, good and

faithful servant ; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make

thee ruler over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Then he which had received the one talent came, and said, Lord I

knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou hast not

sown, and gathering where thou hast not strewed: and I was afraid,

and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is

thine. His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and

slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and

gather where I have not strewed: thou oughtest therefore to have put

my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have

received mine own with usury. Take therefore the talent from him,

and give it unto him which hath ten talents. For unto every one that

hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that

hath not shall be taken away even that he hath. And cast ye the

unprofitable servant into outer darkness : there shall be weeping and

gnashing of teeth. - - - - - - -
