Matthew 20:8-16

8 “When evening came, the owner of the vineyard

said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them

their wages, beginning with the last ones hired

and going on to the first.’

9 “The workers who were hired about the

eleventh hour came and each received a denarius.

10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected

to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius.

11 When they received it, they began to grumble

against the landowner.

12 ‘These men who were hired last worked only one hour,’

they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us

who have borne the burden of the work

and the heat of the day.’

13 “But he answered one of them, ‘

Friend, I am not being unfair to you.

Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius?

14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the

man who was hired last the same as I gave you.

15 Don’t I have the right to do what I want

with my own money? Or are you envious

because I am generous?’

16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
