For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went

out early in the morning to hire men to work in his

vineyard. He agreed to pay them a denarius for the day and

sent them into his vineyard. "About the third hour he

went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing

nothing. He told them, 'You also go and work in my

vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.' So they

went. He went out again about the sixth hour and the

ninth hour and did the same thing. About the eleventh

hour he went out and found still others standing around.

He asked them, 'Why have you been standing here all day

long doing nothing?' 'Because no one has hired us,' they

answered. He said to them, 'You also go and work in my

vineyard.'

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.' The

workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and

each received a denarius. So when those came who were hired

first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also

received a denarius. When they received it, they began to

grumble against the landowner. '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.' But he answered one of them, 'Friend, I am not

being unfair to you. Didn't you agree to work for a denarius?

Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last

the same as I gave you. Don't I have the right to do what I want

with my own money? Or are you envious because I am

generous?'

old hymn
OLD HYMN

Standing in the market places all the season through,

Idly saying ‘Lord, is there no work that we can do?’

O how many loiter, While the Master calls anew—

‘Reapers! Reapers! Who will work today?

Morning hours are passing, and the evening follows fast;

Soon the time of reaping will for evermore be past,

Empty handed to the Master will you go at last?—

Reapers! Reapers! Who will work today?”
