“The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.”
King James Version (KJV)
Mt 18:26 Fell down, and worshipped him. In Oriental countries, almost all who approach monarchs prostrate themselves and offer homage. This is especially true of those who urge a petition. See Es 8:3. Have patience, . . . I will pay thee all. This promise was one that could not possibly be fulfilled, though the servant might think it possible.
