  40. 40. to hire workers for his vineyard.
  41. 41. He agreed to pay each worker one dinar each day and sent them to work in the vinyard.
  42. 42. He went out again around the third hour

  46. 46. He went out again around the sixth hour and again at the ninth hour and did the same.
  47. 47. Around the eleventh hour he went out again and saw some other men idle.
  48. 48. “ Why do you stay here idle the whole day?” He asked them.
  49. 49. “ Because no one has hired us.” They replied. unemployed
  50. 50. “ Go and work in my vineyard.” He replied.
  51. 51. When evening came, the vineyard owner said to his steward :
  52. 52. “ Call the workers and pay them, starting with those who came last, finishing with those who came first.”
  53. 53. Those who came to work at the eleventh hour turned up and each was given a dinar.
  54. 54. Those who came to work earlier expected to receive more but they too were given a dinar each.
  55. 55. Upon receiving it, they started to grumble against the landowner saying: “ These last have hardly worked an hour and you have treated them the same as us who have endured the heavy work of day and the heat!”
  56. 56. The landowner answered one of them saying: “My friend, I have not been unjust to you. Didn’t we agree on one dinar?”
  57. 57. Take what is yours and leave. I want to give to the last one the same as I give to you. Can I not do as I please with what is mine? Why are you envious because of my kindness?
