12:01 And he began to speak to them in "parables" ...
  A man planted a vineyard ...
  and he put a stone dike around it ...
  and he under-dug a vat ...
  and he home-made a tower ...
  and he leased it out to land workers ...
  and he went away.
12:02 And he sent a slave to the land workers in the season
  so that he might receive from the land workers the fruits of the vineyard.
12:03 And having seized him, "skinned" (him) ...
  and they sent him away empty.
12:04 And again, he sent them another slave
  and that one they "headed" and insulted.
12:05 And he sent out another ...
  and they killed that one.
  And many others ... some "skinning" ...
  and others killing.
12:06 Then, still having his one beloved son ...
  finally, he sent him before them, saying that they would respect my son.
12:07 But those (other) land-workers said to themselves that this one is the heir! ... Come on, let's kill him! ...
  and the "inheritance" will be ours.
12:08 And having seized him ...
  they killed him ...
  and they cast him out of the vineyard.
12:09 What then will the Lord of the vineyard do?
  He shall come and destroy the land workers ...
  and he will give the vineyard to others.
12:10 Have you not read this scripture?
  A stone which the home-builders rejected ...
  This (stone) has come to be in a "head of a corner."
12:11 This came to be from the Lord ...
  and it is amazing in our eyes.
12:12 And they were seeking to seize him.
  And they were afraid of the crowd ...
  because they knew the parable he told was against them.
  And leaving him, they went away.
