“Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.”
King James Version (KJV)
18:23 Therefore - In this respect.
Mt 18:23 Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened. The Lord next enforces the great doctrine of forgiveness to our fellow-man in a parable. Unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants. The king is the Lord, the servants those who profess to serve him as King; the kingdom is his church on earth, but reaching beyond the earth.
