21 Revised Standard Version Passage

33"Listen to another parable. There was a householder who planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country.The Parable of the Vineyard and the Tenants Mt.21.33-46 (Jerusalem) | Mk.12.1-12 | Lk.20.9-19
34When the season of fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the tenants, to get his fruit; 
35and the tenants took his servants and beat one, killed another, and stoned another. 
36Again he sent other servants, more than the first; and they did the same to them. 
37Afterward he sent his son to them, saying, 'They will respect my son.' 
38But when the tenants saw the son, they said to themselves, 'This is the heir; come, let us kill him and have his inheritance.' 
39And they took him and cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. 
40When therefore the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?" 
41They said to him, "He will put those wretches to a miserable death, and let out the vineyard to other tenants who will give him the fruits in their seasons." 
42Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the scriptures:
'The very stone which the builders rejected
has become the head of the corner;
this was the Lord's doing,
and it is marvelous in our eyes'?
- the kingdom of God ... given to a nation producing the fruits   Mt.21.43 ( ) | Ps.118.22-23
43Therefore I tell you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a nation producing the fruits of it." 
44 Other ancient authorities add verse 44 ... And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but when it falls on anyone, it will crush him. 
45When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard his parables, they perceived that he was speaking about them. 
46But when they tried to arrest him, they feared the multitudes, because they held him to be a prophet.
