Matthew 21:33-45

Etheridge(i) 33 Hear another comparison: A certain man was a house-lord; and he planted a vinery, and surrounded it with an hedge, and dug a wine-press in it, and built in it a tower, and had it taken by labourers, and journeyed. 34 And when the time of fruits drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might send him of the fruits of his vinery. 35 And the husband-men took his servants, and beat some, and stoned some, and killed others. 36 And again he sent other servants more than the first, and they acted towards them likewise: 37 last, he sent to them his son, saying, Now will they be ashamed from my son. 38 But the husbandmen, when they saw the son, said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and take the inheritance. 39 And they seized and cast him without the vinery, and killed him. 40 When the lord of the vinery, therefore, cometh, what will he do to these husbandmen? 41 They say to him, Most miserably will he destroy them, and the vinery will he cause to be held by other labourers, (even) such as will give him the fruits in their seasons. 42 Jeshu saith to them, Have you not read in the scripture, that the stone which the builders rejected, this is become the head of the corner? By the Lord was this done, and it is wondrous in our eyes. 43 On this account I tell you, that the kingdom of Aloha is taken from you, and shall be given to a people who will yield fruits. 44 And whosoever shall fall upon this stone shall be broken; but every one upon whom it shall fall, it will scatter (him). 45 And when the chief priests and Pharishee heard his comparisons, they knew that concerning themselves he had spoken.
