28 “But when that servant went out,
he found one of his fellow servants who owed
him a hundred denarii. He grabbed him and
began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.
29 “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him,
‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’
30 “But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man
thrown into prison until he could pay the debt.
31 When the other servants saw what had happened,
they were greatly distressed and went
and told their master everything that had happened.
32 “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’
he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours
because you begged me to.
33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant
just as I had on you?’ 34 In anger his master turned him
over to the jailers to be tortured, until he
should pay back all he owed.
35 “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each
of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart.”
