Hire, Hireling

In the NT Jesus uses the day laborer and his relationship to the landowner in a parable to illustrate the kingdom of heaven (Matt 20:1-16). The parable makes it clear that the landowner was required to pay the laborers at the end of every day as specified by the law (Deut 24:14, 15). See Wages.
