Da Worka Guy Dat No Like Let Da Odda Guy Go
21 Den Peter go by Jesus an say, “Eh, Boss, how much times my brudda can do bad tings to me, an I gotta let him go? Seven times, o wat?” 22 Jesus tell him, “No, not ony seven times, but seventy times seven.”
23 Den Jesus say, “Dass how you guys gotta make. Cuz everytime wen God in da sky stay King, dass jalike get one king dat check out wat money his worka guys owe him. 24 He sit down, an dey bring one worka guy by him dat owe um uku paila money. 25 But da worka guy no mo money fo pay him, so da king tell da odda worka guys, ‘Kay den. Go sell da guy fo make him one slave, an sell his wife an his kids too, an everyting he get. Dass how he goin pay wat he owe.’
26 “But dat worka guy go down an beg um. He say, ‘Ah, Boss, try wait! Give me chance! I goin pay you back all da money!’ 27 Da king get pity fo him, so he let um go, an tell him, ‘No need pay notting.’
28 “Den dat same worka guy go outside, an spock one nodda worka guy who owe him pay fo four month work. He grab him by da neck, an tell him, ‘Eh! You owe me money! You betta pay me back!’ 29 Da odda worka guy go down an beg um, ‘Try wait! Give me chance! I goin pay you back all da money.’
30 “But da first worka guy no like wait, so he tell da guards fo put da odda guy inside da prison till he can pay wat he owe him.
31 “Da odda worka guys see wat wen happen, an dey all bum out. Dey go tell da king everyting dat wen happen. 32 Den da king tell da first worka guy fo come, an say, ‘You so unreal!
