45 (A)Who then is the (B)faithful and (C)sensible slave whom his [a]master (D)put in charge of his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 Blessed is that slave whom his [b]master finds so doing when he comes. 47 Truly I say to you that (E)he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But if that evil slave says in his heart, ‘My [c]master [d]is not coming for a long time,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow slaves and eat and drink with drunkards; 50 the [e]master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know, 51 and will [f]cut him in pieces and [g]assign him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there will be (F)weeping and gnashing of teeth.
