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

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:3 - They that were foolish took their lamps, and 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 - While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:6 - And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out 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 gone out.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:10 - And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: 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 neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:14 - For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who 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, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:17 - And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:19 - After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:20 - And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:22 - He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them.

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 make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:24 - Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:25 - And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:26 - 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 have not strawed:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:27 - Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:28 - Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath 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 shall be taken away even that which he hath.

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

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:32 - And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his 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 an hungred, and ye gave me meat: 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 an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:39 - Or 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 have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done 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 everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:42 - For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: 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 him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, 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 to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

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