Timothy, to you I shall leave five talents. Elijah, you will receive two talents. Amos, I will leave you one talent.
Farewell my servants, I shall depart soon. However, I will leave some gifts to you first.
The first servant traded his five talents and received five more.
The second servant went out and made two more talents.
The third servant buried his one talent in the ground.
Greetings my servants, I have returned. What became of your talents?
Master, I went and made five more talents.
I was able to make two more master.
Well done! You have served me well and I shall reward you for it.
You wicket servant! You should have at least invested the talent with interest, so that when I return I could have claimed what is mine. Give the talent to Timothy, who has ten talents. He who has more will be given more, and he who has none will have everything taken away.
Master, I was afraid. I buried the talent you gave me in the ground, it is yours. Here you are master.
