5 Behold, this shall be an example unto my servant , in other places, in all churches. And whoso is found  a faithful, a just and a wise steward, shall enter into the joy  of his Lord, and shall inherit eternal life. Verily I say unto  you, I am Jesus Christ, who cometh quickly, in an hour you  think not: even so. Amen.
