“And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.”
King James Version (KJV)
20:9 Who were hired about the eleventh hour - Either the Gentiles, who were called long after the Jews into the vineyard of the Church of Christ; or those in every age who did not hear, or at least understand the Gospel call, till their day of life was drawing to a period. Some circumstances of the parable seem best to suit the former, some the latter of these senses.
Mt 20:9 They received every man a penny. More than most of them expected. God does not measure our reward by the length, but by the faithfulness of service.
