Matthew 24:45-51 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

45 Who guessest thou is a true servant and prudent [Who guessest thou is a faithful servant and prudent], whom his lord ordained on his household, to give them meat in time?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord, when he shall come [when he come], shall find so doing.

47 Truly I say to you, for on [upon] all his goods he shall ordain him.

48 But if that evil servant [shall] say in his heart, My lord tarrieth to come,

49 and beginneth to smite his even-servants [and shall begin to smite his even-servants], and to eat, and drink with drunken men;

50 the lord of that servant shall come in the day [in] which he hopeth not, and in the hour that he knoweth not,

51 and shall part him (in pieces), and put his part with hypocrites; there shall be weeping, and grinding of teeth [there shall be weeping, and beating together of teeth].

Matthew 24:45-51 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

45 If there be any servant faithful and wise, whom his master has appointed over his household, to give them food in due season, 46 happy is that servant whom his master (when he comes) finds so doing. 47 Truly I say to you, he will appoint him over all his goods. 48 But if the evil servant says in his heart, My master will defer his coming, 49 and begins to smite his fellow servants, yea and to eat and to drink with the drunken, 50 the servant’s master will come in a day when he is not expecting him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and will separate him, and give him his reward with the hypocrites. And there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Matthew 24:45-51 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

45 Who then is a faithful servant and wise, whom his master hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in season?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom his master when he cometh, shall find so doing.

47 Verily I say unto you, he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

48 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My master doth defer his coming,

49 And begin to smite his fellows, and to eat, and to drink with the drunken,

50 That servant’s master will come in a day, when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

51 And will [a]cut him off, and give him his portion with hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
