32b  Du Schalksknecht, alle diese Schuld hab ich dir erlassen, weil du mich batest.
33  Solltest du denn dich nicht auch erbarmen, über deinen Mitknecht, wie ich mich über dich erbarmet habe.

32b  You useless servant, all these faults I have forgiven you, because you beseeched me.
33  Should you not then also pity your fellow servant, as I have pitied you?
