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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:3 - “Those who 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 - “But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:6 - “And at midnight a cry was heard: ‘Behold, the bridegroom is coming;[fn] go 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 to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:9 - “But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:10 - “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:11 - “Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us!’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:12 - “But he answered and said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:13 - “Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour[fn] in which the Son of Man is coming.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:14 - “For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:16 - “Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:17 - “And likewise he who had received two gained two more also.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:18 - “But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:19 - “After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:20 - “So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:21 - “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:22 - “He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:23 - “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:24 - “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:25 - ‘And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:26 - “But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:27 - ‘So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:28 - ‘Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:29 - ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:30 - ‘And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:31 - “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy[fn] angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:32 - “All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:33 - “And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:34 - “Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you 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 you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:36 - ‘I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:37 - “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:38 - ‘When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:39 - ‘Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:40 - “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:42 - ‘for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:43 - ‘I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:44 - “Then they also will answer Him,[fn] saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:45 - “Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’

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