The Parable of the Vineyard Workers

1For the kingdom of heaven is like to a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard. 2And when he had agreed with the laborers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4And said to them; Go you also into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you. And they went their way. 5Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. 6And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and said to them, Why stand you here all the day idle? 7They say to him, Because no man has hired us. He said to them, Go you also into the vineyard; and whatever is right, that shall you receive. 8So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard said to his steward, Call the laborers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last to the first. 9And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. 10But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. 11And when they had received it, they murmured against the manager of the house, 12Saying, These last have worked but one hour, and you have made them equal to us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. 13But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do you no wrong: did not you agree with me for a penny? 14Take that your is, and go your way: I will give to this last, even as to you. 15Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with my own? Is your eye evil, because I am good? 16So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.
