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

2: And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. edit

3: They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: edit

4: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. edit

5: While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. edit

6: And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. edit

7: Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. edit

8: And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. edit

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. edit

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. edit

11: Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. edit

12: But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. edit

13: Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. edit

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. edit

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. edit

16: Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. edit

17: And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. edit

18: But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money. edit

19: After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. edit

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. edit

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. edit

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. edit

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. edit

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: edit

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

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: edit

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. edit

28: Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. edit

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. edit

30: And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. edit

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: edit

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: edit

33: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. edit

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: edit

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: edit

36: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. edit

37: Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? edit

38: When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? edit

39: Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? edit

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. edit

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: edit

42: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: edit

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. edit

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? edit

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. edit

46: And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. edit
