Chris

Thank you for answering the questions, Pastor Henry!
Regarding the last: i think Bible translators could have done a better job with verses 7-10. as you know, they often add words in italics to tie sentences and thoughts together to accomodate more modern written communication. the ESV does a good job with verse 10 by adding the very significant word "only" in the thought:

"So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have *only* done what was our duty.’”

if 'only' were added once more instead of "all that", it would make complete sense and i believe more commentors would have interpreted it correctly:

"So you also, when you have done *only* that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.’”
