Matthew 21:33 - 46
Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and
hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to
husbandmen, and went into a far country:
And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they
might receive the fruits of it.
And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned
Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come,
let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard
unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders
rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is
marvellous in our eyes?
Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a
nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will
grind him to powder.
And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he
spake of them.
But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him
for a prophet.
Mark 12:1 - 11
And he began to speak unto them by parables. A certain man planted a vineyard, and set an
hedge about it, and digged a place for the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to
husbandmen, and went into a far country.
And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the
husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.
And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded him
in the head, and sent him away shamefully handled.
And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing
Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They
will reverence my son.
But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the
inheritance shall be our's.
And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen,
and will give the vineyard unto others.
And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the
head of the corner:
This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
Luke 20:9 - 18
Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let
it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time.
And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit
of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty.
And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and
sent him away empty.
And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.
Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be
they will reverence him when they see him.
But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the
heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.
So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the
vineyard do unto them?
He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And
when they heard it, they said, God forbid.
And he beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders
rejected, the same is become the head of the corner?
Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will
grind him to powder.
