The third slave dug a hole (Mt 25:18-25:18)

“But the one slave who had

Received the one talent

Went off.

He dug a hole

In the ground.

He hid

His master’s money.”

 

ὁ δὲ τὸ ἓν λαβὼν ἀπελθὼν ὤρυξεν γῆν καὶ ἔκρυψεν τὸ ἀργύριον τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ.

 

This parable is unique to Matthew, but there is something similar in Luke, chapter 19:12-27.  Unlike the first 2 slaves, this 3rd slave did something else with his one talent.  Jesus said that this slave who had received one talent (ὁ δὲ τὸ ἓν λαβὼν) went off and dug a hole in the ground (ἀπελθὼν ὤρυξεν γῆν).  He hid his master’s or his lord’s money (καὶ ἔκρυψεν τὸ ἀργύριον τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ).
