11 While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately.12 So He said, “A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return.13 And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten [a]minas and said to them, ‘Do business with this[b]until I come back.’14 But his citizens hated him and sent [c]a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’15 When he returned, after receiving the kingdom, he ordered that these slaves, to whom he had given the money, be called to him so that he might know what business they had done.16 The first appeared, saying, ‘[d]Master, your [e]mina has made ten minas more.’17 And he said to him, ‘Well done, good slave, because you have been faithful in a very little thing, you are to be in authority over ten cities.’18 The second came, saying, ‘Your [f]mina, [g]master, has made five minas.’19 And he said to him also, ‘And you are to be over five cities.’
Luke 19:13A mina is equal to about 100 days’ wages
