28“But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins.Greek a hundred denarii ; a denarius was the usual daily wage of a day laborer (see 20:2).He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.
29“His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay it back.’30“But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt.
31When the other servants saw what had happened, they were outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened.
