45 “Who then is (A)the faithful and (B)wise servant,[a] whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? 46 (C)Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. 47 Truly, I say to you, (D)he will set him over all his possessions. 48 But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master (E)is delayed,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants[b] and eats and drinks with (F)drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come (G)on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know 51 and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place (H)there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
