The landowner sent
More than the first time.
The tenants did the same
πάλιν ἀπέστειλεν ἄλλους δούλους πλείονας τῶν πρώτων, καὶ ἐποίησαν αὐτοῖς ὡσαύτως.
This parable of the wicked tenants can be found in Mark, chapter 12:4-5, and Luke, chapter 20:11-12, but there were multiple occasions with individual slaves in both these accounts, instead of the multiple slaves here on just one occasion. This landowner sent more slaves (πάλιν ἀπέστειλεν ἄλλους δούλους) this second time around. This time, there was more than the 3 like the first time (πλείονας τῶν πρώτων), without any indication of how many. However, the wicked tenants did the same thing to them (καὶ ἐποίησαν αὐτοῖς ὡσαύτως) that they had done to the first group of slaves, once again without being specific.
“When the harvest time
The landowner sent his slaves
To the tenants,
To collect his produce.
But the tenants
Seized his slaves.
They beat one slave.
They killed another slave.
They stoned still another slave.”
ὅτε δὲ ἤγγισεν ὁ καιρὸς τῶν καρπῶν, ἀπέστειλεν τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ πρὸς τοὺς γεωργοὺς λαβεῖν τοὺς καρποὺς αὐτοῦ.
καὶ λαβόντες οἱ γεωργοὶ τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ ὃν μὲν ἔδειραν, ὃν δὲ ἀπέκτειναν, ὃν δὲ ἐλιθοβόλησαν.
This parable of the wicked tenants can be found in Mark, chapter 12:2-3, and Luke, chapter 20:10, but there was only one slave in both these accounts, instead of the 3 different slaves here. When the harvest time came, the time when the grapes would be ripe for picking (ὅτε δὲ ἤγγισεν ὁ καιρὸς τῶν καρπῶν), the landowner sent his slaves (ἀπέστειλεν τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ) to these tenants or renters (τοὺς γεωργοὺς) to collect his fruit produce (λαβεῖν τοὺς καρποὺς αὐτοῦ). However, his tenant farmers seized his slaves (καὶ λαβόντες οἱ γεωργοὶ τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ). They beat one slave (ὃν μὲν ἔδειραν). Then they killed another slave (ὃν δὲ ἀπέκτειναν) and stoned still another slave (ὃν δὲ ἐλιθοβόλησαν). These tenant farmers were not very nice.
