he which had received the one talent
[a.] came and said,
[11.] Lord [each of the three calls Jesus, Lord],
[aa.] I knew thee that thou art an hard man,
[111.] reaping where thou hast not sown, and
[112.] gathering where thou hast not strowed:
[ab.] I was afraid [fear of money kept this man from fulfilling God’s will for him to be rich; it also cost him his soul] , and
[112.] [I] went and hid thy talent in the earth [none was used to fund the end-time harvest: he neither went himself nor sent anyone else out into the fields Jesus said were already white unto harvest]:
[aaa.] lo, [there] thou hast [that is] thine.
25:26  His lord answered and said unto him,
[a.] [Thou] wicked and slothful servant,
[11.] thou knewest [he knew the Word] that
[aa.] I reap where I sowed not, and
[ab.][I] gather where I have not strowed:
25:27 [b.] Thou oughtest therefore
[11.] to have put my money [the talents represent money]
[aa.] to the exchangers, and
[111.] [then] at my coming
[aaa.] I should have received mine own with usury [I would have at least received the interest off of my money].
25:28 [c.] Take therefore the talent
[11.] from him, and
[12.] give [it] unto him
[aa.] which hath ten talents [now he has $220,000,000 to work with].
25:29 [d.] For unto every one that hath
[11.] shall be given, and
[aa.] he shall have abundance:
[e.] but from him that hath not
[11.] shall be taken away
[aa.] even that which he hath.
[f.] cast ye the unprofitable servant
[11.] into outer darkness:
[aa.] there shall be
[111.] weeping and
[112.] gnashing of teeth.
 the Son of man shall come [the second coming of Jesus]
[a.] in his glory, and
[b.] all the holy angels with him,
 then shall he sit [in a place of rest]
[a.] upon the throne of his glory:
 before him shall be gathered
[a.] all nations: and
 he shall separate them
[a.] one from another,
[b.] as a shepherd divideth [his]
[11.] sheep from the goats:
 he shall set the sheep [there will be sheep and goat nations for Jesus to judge]
[a.] on his right hand, but
 [he shall set] the goats
[a.] on the left.
