Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:1 - "Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.

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

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

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:5 - As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:6 - But at midnight there was a cry, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:7 - Then all those maidens rose 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 replied, 'Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers 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 marriage feast; and the door was shut.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:12 - But he replied, 'Truly, 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.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:14 - "For it will be as when a man going on a journey called his servants and entrusted to them his property;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:15 - to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:16 - He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them; and he made five talents more.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:17 - So also, he who had the two talents made two talents more.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:18 - But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master's money.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:19 - Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:20 - And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, 'Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:21 - His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:22 - And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, 'Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:23 - His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:24 - He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, 'Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not winnow;

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:25 - so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:26 - But his master answered him, 'You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:27 - Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.

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

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

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:30 - And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:31 - "When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:32 - Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:33 - and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:34 - Then the King will say to those at his right hand, 'Come, O 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 welcomed me,

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, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:38 - And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:39 - And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:40 - And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:41 - Then he will say to those at his left hand, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels;

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 welcome me, 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, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:45 - Then he will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.'

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 25:46 - And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
