Much Is Required To Them

Heard in Virginia’s Republican governor Bob McDonnell’s response to the president’s State of the Union address:
The Scriptures say, “To whom much is given, much will be required.”
Beyond noting the latest appearance of this saying, and offering the way I’d phrase it — From them to whom much is given, much is required — I can’t add to what Mark Liberman at Language Log has already said about its garbled syntax.
