25:1 ¶ Then, will the kingdom of the heavens become like unto, ten virgins, who, taking their torches, went forth to meet the bridegroom.
25:2 Now, five of them, were foolish, and, five, prudent.
25:3 For, the foolishthough they took, their torches, took not with them, oil:
25:4 But, the prudent, took oil in their vessels, with their torches.
25:5 Now, the bridegroom, delaying, they all became drowsy, and were sleeping.
25:6 And, at midnight, an outcry hath been madeLo! the bridegroom! Be going forth to meet him!
25:7 Then, arose all those virgins, and trimmed their torches.
25:8 And, the foolish, unto the prudent, saidGive us of your oil, because, our torches, are going out.
25:9 But the prudent, answered, sayingLest once, by any means, there be not enough for us and you, be going rather unto them that sell, and buy for yourselves
25:10 But, as they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came; and, they who were ready, went in with him, into the marriage-feast, and, the door was locked.
25:11 But, afterwards, came the other virgins also, sayingLord! Lord! open unto us!
25:12 And, he, answering, saidVerily, I say unto you, I know you not.
25:13 Be watching, therefore, because ye know, neither the day nor the hour.
25:14 ¶ For it is, just as a man, who, going from home, called his own servants, and delivered up to them his substance;
25:15 And, to one, indeed, gave he five talents, and, to another, two, and, to another, one,to each according to his particular ability, and went from home.
25:16 Straightway, he who, the five talents, had received, went and traded with them, and gained other five:
25:17 Likewise, he of the two, gained other two:
25:18 But, he who the one had received, went away, and digged up ground, and hid the silver of his lord.
25:19 And, after a long time, cometh the lord of those servants, and reckoneth with them.
25:20 And he who the five talents had received, coming forward, brought other five talents, saying,Lord! five talents, to me, thou didst deliver up: See! other five talents, I gained.
25:21 His lord said unto himWell-done! good and faithful servant,Over a few things wast thou faithful, over many things, will I appoint thee: Enter into the joy of thy lord.
25:22 He also of the two talents, coming forward, saidLord! two talents, to me, didst thou deliver up: See! other two talents, I gained.
25:23 His lord said unto himWell-done! good and faithful servant,Over a few things, wast thou faithful, over many things, will I appoint thee: Enter into the joy of thy lord.
25:24 But he also who, the one talent, had received, coming forward, saidLord I knew thee, that thou art a, hard, man, reaping, where thou hast not sown,and gathering, whence thou hast not winnowed;
25:25 And, overcome with fear, I went away, and hid thy talent in the ground: See! thou hast what is thine!
25:26 And his lord, answering, said unto himO wicked servant, and cowardly, knewest thou that I reap, where I have not sown, and gather, whence I have not winnowed?
25:27 It was binding on thee, therefore, to cast my silver into the money-changers,and, I, when I, came, might have obtained what was mine, with interest.
25:28 Therefore take away, from him, the talent, and give unto him that hath the ten talents;
25:29 For, to every one that hath, shall be given, and he shall be made to abound; but, from him that hath not, even what he hath, shall be taken away from him:
25:30 And, the unprofitable servant, cast ye forth into the darkness, outside: There, shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
25:31 ¶ But, whensoever the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the messengers with him, then will he sit on his throne of glory;
25:32 And there will be gathered before him, all the nations, and he will separate them one from another, just as, the shepherd! separateth the sheep from the goats,
25:33 And he will set, the sheep, indeed, on his right hand, but, the goats, on the left.
25:34 Then, will the king say to those on his right hand: Come ye, the blessed of my Father! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;
25:35 For I hungered, and ye gave me to eat, I thirsted, and ye gave me drink, a stranger, was I, and ye took me home,
25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me, sick, and ye visited me, in prison, was I, and ye came unto me.
25:37 Then, will the righteous answer him, saying: Lord! when, saw we theehungry, and fed thee, or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
25:38 And, when, saw we theea stranger, and took thee home, or naked, and clothed thee?
25:39 And, when, saw we theesick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
25:40 And, answering, the king will say unto them: Verily, I say unto youInasmuch as ye did it unto one of these my least brethren, unto me, ye did it.
25:41 Then, will he say unto those also, on his left hand: Depart ye from me, accursed ones! Into the age-abiding fire, which hath been prepared for the adversary and his messengers;
25:42 For I hungered, and ye gave me not to eat, [and] I was thirsty, and ye gave me not to drink,
25:43 A stranger, was I, and ye took me not home, naked, and ye clothed me not, sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
25:44 Then, will, they also, answer, saying: Lord! when saw we theehungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and ministered not unto thee?
25:45 Then, will he answer them, saying: Verily, I say unto youInasmuch as ye did it not, unto one of these least, neither unto me, did ye it.
25:46 And, these, shall go away, into, age-abiding, correction, but, the righteous, into, age-abiding, life.
