Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:1 - Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:2 - And five of them were foolish, and five were wise.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:3 - For the foolish, when they took their lamps, took no oil with them:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:4 - but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:5 - Now while the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:6 - But at midnight there is a cry, Behold, the bridegroom! Come ye forth to meet him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:7 - Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:8 - And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:9 - But the wise answered, saying, Peradventure there will not be enough for us and you: go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:10 - And while they went away to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage feast: and the door was shut.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:11 - Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:12 - But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:13 - Watch therefore, for ye know not the day nor the hour.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:14 - For it is as when a man, going into another country, called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:15 - And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one; to each according to his several ability; and he went on his journey.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:16 - Straightway he that received the five talents went and traded with them, and made other five talents.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:17 - In like manner he also that received the two gained other two.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:18 - But he that received the one went away and digged in the earth, and hid his lord’s money.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:19 - Now after a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and maketh a reckoning with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:20 - And he that received the five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: lo, I have gained other five talents.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:21 - His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:22 - And he also that received the two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: lo, I have gained other two talents.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:23 - His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will set thee over many things; enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:24 - And he also that had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou didst not sow, and gathering where thou didst not scatter;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:25 - and I was afraid, and went away and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, thou hast thine own.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:26 - But his lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I did not scatter;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:27 - thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the bankers, and at my coming I should have received back mine own with interest.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:28 - Take ye away therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him that hath the ten talents.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:29 - For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken away.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:30 - And cast ye out the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:31 - But when the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit on the throne of his glory:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:32 - and before him shall be gathered all the nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:33 - and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:34 - Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:35 - for I was hungry, and ye gave me to eat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me in;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:36 - naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:37 - Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, and fed thee? or athirst, and gave thee drink?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:38 - And when saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:39 - And when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:40 - And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it unto one of these my brethren, even these least, ye did it unto me.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:41 - Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:42 - for I was hungry, and ye did not give me to eat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:43 - I was a stranger, and ye took me not in; naked, and ye clothed me not; sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:44 - Then shall they also answer, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:45 - Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not unto one of these least, ye did it not unto me.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:46 - And these shall go away into eternal punishment: but the righteous into eternal life.
