Matthew 20 : 1 - 7

Chapter 20

1"For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard.
2Now when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard.
3And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace,
4and said to them, "You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.' So they went.
5Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise.
6And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, "Why have you been standing here idle all day?'
7They said to him, "Because no one hired us.' He said to them, "You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you will receive.'
