20) Gehazi, the servant of Elisha the man of God, said to himself, “My master was too easy on Naaman, this Aramean, by not accepting from him what he brought. As surely as the Lord lives, I will run after him and get something from him.”
21) So Gehazi hurried after Naaman. When Naaman saw him running toward him, he got down from the chariot to meet him. “Is everything all right?” he asked.
22) “Everything is all right,”....
25) When he went in and stood before his master, Elisha asked him, “Where have you been Gehazi? “Your servant didn’t go anywhere.”Gehazi answered.
26) But Elisha said to him. “Was not my spirit with you when the man got down from his chariot to meet you? Is this the time to take money or to accept cloths—or olive groves and vineyards, or flocks and herds, or male and female slaves?
27) Naaman’s leprosy will cling to you and to your descendants forever.” Then Gahazi went from Elisha’s presence and his skin was leprous—it had become as white as snow.

17) At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited. Come, for everything is now ready.
18) “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.
19) “Another said, I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.
20) “Still another said, I just got married, so I can’t come.

33) “Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and build a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place.
34) When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit.
35) “The tenants seized his servants; they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third.
36) Then he sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way.
37) Last of all, he sent his son to them. They will respect my son, he said.
38) “But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other. This is the heir. Come, let’s kill him and take his inheritance.
39) So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.
40) Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?
41) “He will bring those wretches to a wretched end,” they replied, “and he will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time.”
45) When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard Jesus parables, they knew he was talking about them.

29) “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him. Be patient with me, and i will pay it 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 outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened.

23) “His master replied, well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things: I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!

26) “his master replied, you wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed?
