Luke 17:10 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Unprofitable (ἀχρεῖοι)

From χρεία, requirement; something which the master must pay. Not useless, but having rendered no service beyond what was due. "The profit does not begin until the servant goes beyond his obligation" (Meyer). "A servant owes all things" (Bengel).
