11.8 Who is a wise and faithful servant,1 who provides food and rules well over his household? He will be blessed if he is so doing when his master comes. He will be set over all possessions. But if evil, that servant says, My masters coming is delayed, he mistreats fellow servants, eats and drinks with drunkards. That servants master will come unexpectedly, severely cut him up and assign him a portion with hypocrites, where they will be weeping and grinding their teeth.”
