The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth (the Jefferson Bible), by Thomas Jefferson, [1902], at

p. 136


The Faithful and Wise Servant.

WHO then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

2 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

3 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

4 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

5 And shall begin to smite his fellow-servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

6 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

7 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
