Hear another parable: There was a certain householder , which planted a vineyard , and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower , and let it out to husbandmen , and went into a far country : And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
