    And by the vineyard of the man devoid of understanding;
    And there it was, all overgrown with thorns;
    Its surface was covered with nettles;
    Its stone wall was broken down.
    When I saw it, I considered it well;
    I looked on it and received instruction:

    A little folding of the hands to rest;

    And your need like an armed man.

    In toil you shall eat of it
    All the days of your life.

    Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
    And you shall eat the herb of the field.

    Till you return to the ground,
    For out of it you were taken;
    For dust you are,
    And to dust you shall return."

So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
