|67. The Farmer And His Sons|
A Farmer being on the point of death,
wished to insure from his sons the same attention to his farm as he had himself given it. He called them to his bedside, and said, "My sons, there is a great treasure hidden in one of my vineyards." The sons after his
death took their spades and mattocks, and carefully dug over every portion of their land. They found no treasure, but the vines repaid their labour by an extraordinary and super abundant crop.
一个农夫在临终时，希望他的儿子们和自己一样勤耕他的田地。 他叫他们来到床前说：「孩子们，在我葡萄园里的某个地方，藏着一大笔的财物。」 他的儿子们在他死后，都拿了铁锹和锄头，小心地在田地的各处翻掘着。 但他们找不到任何财物，然而葡萄却因此生长得很茂盛，成为他们劳动的报酬。
