For the kingdom of heaven like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.  And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard.  And he went out about the third hour, others standing idle in the marketplace,  And said Go also into the vineyard, and whatsoever right I will give  Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise.  And about the eleventh he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle?  They say unto him, Because no man hath hired He saith unto them, Go also into the vineyard; and whatsoever right, that shall ye receive.  So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first.  And when they came that were hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny.  when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and received every man a penny.  And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,  Saying, These last have wrought hour, and thou hast made them equal which have borne the burden and heat of the day.  But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, no wrong: not thou agree for a penny?  Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give last, even as  Is it not lawful to do what I will with mine own? eye evil, because I am good?  So the last first, and the first last: for many called, but few chosen.
