The Unfaithful Servant

Luke 12:45-47

45] But and if that servant says in his heart, My lord delays his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken;

46] The lord of that servant will come in a day when he does not look for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers (there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth – Matthew 24:51)

(Note: Luke 12:45-46 is restated in Matthew 24:48-51.)

47] And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and did not prepare himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.

Matthew 24:51

51] And (the lord of that servant) shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites:

Luke 12:48

48] But he that did not know, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For to whomever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
