Latin.png Latin text

Serve nequam, omne debitum dimisi tibi quoniam rogasti me; nonne ergo oportuit et te misereri conservi tui, sicut et ego tui misertus sum?

German.png German translation

Du nichtsnutziger Knecht! Deine ganze Schuld habe ich dir erlassen, weil du mich gebeten hast; hättest du dich da nicht auch erbarmen sollen über deinen Mitknecht, wie ich mich über dich erbarmt habe?

English.png English translation

You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me. And should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?
