21 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

33"Listen to another parable. There was a householder who planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country.The Parable of the Vineyard and the Tenants Mt.21.33-46 (Jerusalem) | Mk.12.1-12 | Lk.20.9-19Ἀλλην παραβολὴν ἀκούσατε. Ἄνθρωπος ἦν οἰκοδεσπότης ὁστις ἐφύτευσεν ἀμπελῶνα καὶ φραγμὸν αὐτῷ περιέθηκεν καὶ ὤρυξεν ἐν αὐτῷ ληνὸν καὶ ᾠκοδόμησεν πύργον, καὶ ἐξέδετο αὐτὸν γεωργοῖς, καὶ ἀπεδήμησεν.
34When the season of fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants, to get his fruit; ὅτε δὲ ἠγγισεν ὁ καιρὸς τῶν καρπῶν, ἀπέστειλεν τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ πρὸς τοὺς γεωργοὺς λαβεῖν τοὺς καρποὺς αὐτοῦ.
35and the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. καὶ λαβόντες οἱ γεωργοὶ τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ ὃν μὲν ἐδειραν, ὃν δὲ ἀπέκτειναν, ὃν δὲ ἐλιθοβόλησαν.
36Again he sent other servants, more than the first; and they did the same to them. πάλιν ἀπέστειλεν ἀλλους δούλους πλείονας τῶν πρώτων, καὶ ἐποίησαν αὐτοῖς ὡσαύτως.
37Afterward he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' ὑστερον δὲ ἀπέστειλεν πρὸς αὐτοὺς τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ λέγων, Ἐντραπήσονται τὸν υἱόν μου.
38But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.' οἱ δὲ γεωργοὶ ἰδόντες τὸν υἱὸν εἶπον ἐν ἑαυτοῖς, Οὗτός ἐστιν ὁ κληρονόμος· δεῦτε ἀποκτείνωμεν αὐτὸν καὶ σχῶμεν τὴν κληρονομίαν αὐτοῦ.
39And they took him and cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. καὶ λαβόντες αὐτὸν ἐξέβαλον ἐξω τοῦ ἀμπελῶνος καὶ ἀπέκτειναν.
40When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?" ὁταν οὖν ἐλθῃ ὁ κύριος τοῦ ἀμπελῶνος, τί ποιήσει τοῖς γεωργοῖς ἐκείνοις;
41They said to him, "He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons." λέγουσιν αὐτῷ, κακοὺς κακῶς ἀπολέσει αὐτούς, καὶ τὸν ἀμπελῶνα ἐκδώσεται ἀλλοις γεωργοῖς, οἱτινες ἀποδώσουσιν αὐτῷ τοὺς καρποὺς ἐν τοῖς καιροῖς αὐτῶν.
42Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the scriptures:

'The very stone which the builders rejected
has become the head of the corner;
this was the Lord's doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes'?

- the kingdom of God ... given to a nation producing the fruits   Mt.21.43 ( ) | Ps.118.22-23λέγει αὐτοῖς ὁ Ἰησοῦς,
Οὐδέποτε ἀνέγνωτε ἐν ταῖς γραφαῖς,

Λίθον ὃν ἀπεδοκίμασαν οἱ οἰκοδομοῦντες
οὗτος ἐγενήθη εἰς κεφαλὴν γωνίας:
παρὰ κυρίου ἐγένετο αὕτη,
καὶ ἔστιν θαυμαστὴ ἐν ὀφθαλμοῖς ἡμῶν;

43Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it." διὰ τοῦτο λέγω ὑμῖν ὅτι ἀρθήσεται ἀφ' ὑμῶν ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ δοθήσεται ἐθνει ποιοῦντι τοὺς καρποὺς αὐτῆς.
44 Other ancient authorities add verse 44 ... And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but when it falls on anyone, it will crush him. καὶ ὁ πεσὼν ἐπὶ τὸν λίθον τοῦτον συνθλασθήσεται· ἐφ' ὃν δ' ἂν πέσῃ λικμήσει αὐτόν.
45When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them. Καὶ ἀκούσαντες οἱ ἀρχιερεῖς καὶ οἱ Φαρισαῖοι τὰς παραβολὰς αὐτοῦ ἐγνωσαν ὅτι περὶ αὐτῶν λέγει·
46But when they tried to arrest him, they feared the multitudes, because they held him to be a prophet. καὶ ζητοῦντες αὐτὸν κρατῆσαι ἐφοβήθησαν τοὺς ὀχλους, ἐπεὶ εἰς προφήτην αὐτὸν εἶχον.
