Matthew 25:1
  Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
   
Matthew 25:2
  And five of them were foolish, and five were wise.
   
Matthew 25:3
  For the foolish, when they took their lamps, took no oil with them:
   
Matthew 25:4
  but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
   
Matthew 25:5
  Now while the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
   
Matthew 25:6
  But at midnight there is a cry, Behold, the bridegroom! Come ye forth to meet him.
   
Matthew 25:7
  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
   
Matthew 25:8
  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are going out.
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 25:11
  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
   
Matthew 25:12
  But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
   
Matthew 25:13
  Watch therefore, for ye know not the day nor the hour.
   
Matthew 25:14
  For it is as when a man, going into another country, called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 25:16
  Straightway he that received the five talents went and traded with them, and made other five talents.
   
Matthew 25:17
  In like manner he also that received the two gained other two.
   
Matthew 25:18
  But he that received the one went away and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
   
Matthew 25:19
  Now after a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and maketh a reckoning with them.
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 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;
   
Matthew 25:25
  and I was afraid, and went away and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, thou hast thine own.
   
Matthew 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;
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 25:28
  Take ye away therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him that hath the ten talents.
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 25:30
  And cast ye out the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
   
Matthew 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:
   
Matthew 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;
   
Matthew 25:33
  and he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
   
Matthew 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:
   
Matthew 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;
   
Matthew 25:36
  naked, and ye clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
   
Matthew 25:37
  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungry, and fed thee? or athirst, and gave thee drink?
   
Matthew 25:38
  And when saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
   
Matthew 25:39
  And when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 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:
   
Matthew 25:42
  for I was hungry, and ye did not give me to eat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink;
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 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?
   
Matthew 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.
   
Matthew 25:46
  And these shall go away into eternal punishment: but the righteous into eternal life.
