The Faithful Servant and the Evil Servant(A)

45 (B)“Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food [a]in due season? 46 (C)Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. 47 Assuredly, I say to you that (D)he will make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master (E)is delaying [b]his coming,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is (F)not aware of, 51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. (G)There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
