Matthew 20:10 "And when those [hired] first came, they thought that they would receive more; and they also received each one a denarius.

< Matthew 20:9
Matthew 20:11 >

      10. But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more--This is that calculating, mercenary spirit which had peeped out--though perhaps very slightly--in Peter's question (Mt 19:27), and which this parable was designed once for all to put down among the servants of Christ.
