“His lord answered, and said vnto him, Thou wicked and slouthfull seruant, thou knewest that I reape where I sowed not, and gather where I haue not strawed:”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
25:26 Thou knewest - That I require impossibilities! This is not an allowing, but a strong denial of the charge.
Mt 25:26 [Thou] wicked and slothful servant. The wickedness of the servant is demonstrated, not only his unfaithfulness, but by his false and slanderous excuses.
