And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh [near] to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should [was going to WU] immediately appear.

LK 19:21 And he saith unto him, Out of [the words of WU] thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow: LK 19:22 Wherefore then [why] gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required [collected WU] mine own with usury [interest]?
