Matthew 18:21-35

21 Then Peter came to him, and said: Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Till seven times? 22 Jesus said to him: I say to you, Not till seven times, but till seventy times seven. 23 For this reason, the kingdom of heaven is likened to a king that wished to settle accounts with his servants. 24 And when he began to make a settlement, there was brought to him one that owed him ten thou sand talents. 25 But as he was not able to pay, his lord commanded him, and his wife, and children, and all that he had, to be sold, and payment to be made. 26 Therefore, the servant fell down and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, Lord, and I will pay you all. 27 And the lord of that servant was moved with compassion, and let him go, and for gave him the debt. 28 But that servant went out, and found one of his fellow servants, who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hold of him, and took him by the throat, saying: Pay me what you owe. 29 Then his fellow-servant fell down at his feet, and be sought him, saying: Have patience with me, and I will pay you all. 30 And he would not; but went and threw him into prison, till he should pay the debt. 31 When his fellow-servants saw what was done, they were very sad, and went and made known to their lord all that was done. 32 Then his lord called him and said to him: Wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt, because you besought me. 33 Ought you not to have had mercy on your fellow-servant, even as I had mercy on you? 34 And his lord was angry, and delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all that was due him. 35 So also will my heavenly Father do to you, if, from your hearts, you forgive not every one his brother's offenses.
