The tenants beat the slave (Mk 12:3 -12:3)

“But they seized

The slave.

They beat him.

They sent him away

Empty-handed.”

 

καὶ λαβόντες αὐτὸν ἔδειραν καὶ ἀπέστειλαν κενόν.

 

This beating of the slave by the wicked tenants can be found somewhat similar in Matthew, chapter 21:35, and Luke, chapter 20:10, but there was only one slave here and in Luke, instead of the 3 different slaves, as in MatthewMark said that these tenant farmers seized this slave (καὶ λαβόντες αὐτὸν).  They beat him (ἔδειραν).  Then they sent him away empty-handed (καὶ ἀπέστειλαν κενόν).  These tenant farmers were not very nice.
