The other slaves were angry (Mt 18:31-18:31)

“When his fellow slaves

Saw what had happened,

They were deeply distressed.

They went to their lord.

They reported to their king

All that had taken place.”

 

ἰδόντες οὖν οἱ σύνδουλοι αὐτοῦ τὰ γενόμενα ἐλυπήθησαν σφόδρα, καὶ ἐλθόντες διεσάφησαν τῷ κυρίῳ ἑαυτῶν πάντα τὰ γενόμενα.

 

This parable about the unforgiving servant slave is unique to Matthew.  As this king was rich and had many slaves, their fellow servant slaves saw what had happened (ἰδόντες οὖν οἱ σύνδουλοι αὐτοῦ τὰ γενόμενα).  They were deeply upset, pained, and distressed (ἐλυπήθησαν σφόδρα).  They went and reported to their lord, the king (καὶ ἐλθόντες διεσάφησαν τῷ κυρίῳ ἑαυτῶν), everything that had taken place (πάντα τὰ γενόμενα).  Let’s see what happens now.
