Matthew 21:33 - 46


21:33 - 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:

21:34 - And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

21:35 - And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

21:36 - Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

21:37 - But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

21:38 - 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.

21:39 - And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

21:40 - When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

21:41 - 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.

21:42 - 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?

21:43 - Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

21:44 - And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

21:45 - And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

21:46 - But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

Mark 12:1 - 11


12:1 - 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.

12:2 - And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.

12:3 - And they caught him, and beat him, and sent him away empty.

12:4 - 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.

12:5 - And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.

12:6 - Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.

12:7 - But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be our's.

12:8 - And they took him, and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.

12:9 - What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.

12:10 - And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:

12:11 - This was the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

Luke 20:9 - 18


20:9 - 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.

20:10 - 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.

20:11 - And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty.

20:12 - And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out.

20:13 - 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.

20:14 - 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.

20:15 - So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them?

20:16 - He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.

20:17 - 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?

20:18 - Whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
