from your hearts."
questionanswer
partitive genitive - servants are associated with one another/same level (co-servants)
expresses urgency--> "all of it now!"
result with indicative following imperative
grieved because they knew the kindness that the king had shown him --> they understood the depth of the king's forgiveness (those outside looking in).
This is the ground to the whole thing --> It's all about Jesus, Jesus with us, Jesus in us, Jesus for us, Jesus is ours, and we are his.
