Matthew 25
International Standard Version
25"At that time, the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten bridesmaids who took their oil lamps and went out to meet the groom.G5119G932G3772G3666G1176G3933G3748G2983G846G2985G1831G529G1519G3566 2Now five of them were foolish, and five were wise,G1161G4002G1537G846G2258G5429G2532G4002G3474 3because when the foolish ones took their lamps, they didn't take any oil with them.G3748G3474G2983G846G1438G2985G2983G3756G1637G3326G1438 4But the wise ones took flasks of oil with their lamps.G1161G5429G2983G1637G1722G846G30G3326G846G2985 5Since the groom was late, all of them became sleepy and lay down.1G1161G3566G5549G3956G3573G2532G2518 6"But at midnight there came a shout: 'The groom is here! Come out to meet him!'G1161G3319G3571G2906G1096G2400G3566G2064G1831G1519G529G846 7Then all the bridesmaids woke up and got their lamps ready.G5119G3956G1565G3933G1453G2532G2885G846G2985 8But the foolish ones said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, because our lamps are going out!'G1161G3474G2036G5429G1325G2254G1537G5216G1637G3754G2257G2985G4570 9But the wise ones replied, 'No! There will never be enough for us and for you. You'd better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.'G1161G5429G611G3004G3379G714G3756G714G2254G2532G5213G1161G4198G3123G4314G4453G2532G59G1438 10"While they were away buying it, the groom arrived. Those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet, and the door was closed.G1161G846G565G59G3566G2064G2532G2092G1525G3326G846G1519G1062G2532G2374G2808 11Later the other bridesmaids arrived and said, 'Lord, lord, open up for us!'G1161G5305G2064G2532G3062G3933G3004G2962G2962G455G2254 12But he replied, 'I tell you with certainty, I don't know you!'G1161G611G2036G281G3004G5213G1492G5209G3756 13So keep on watching, because you don't know the day or the hour."G1127G3767G3754G1492G3756G2250G3761G5610G1722G3739G5207G444G2064 14"Similarly, it is like a man going on a trip who called his servants and turned his money over to them.G1063G5618G444G589G2564G2398G1401G2532G3860G846G846G5224 15To one man he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, based on their ability. Then he went on his trip.G2532G3739G3303G1325G4002G5007G1161G3739G1417G1161G3739G1520G1538G2596G2398G1411G2532G2112G589 16"The one who received five talents went out at once and invested them and earned five more.G1161G2983G4002G5007G4198G2038G1722G846G2532G4160G243G4002G5007 17In the same way, the one who had two talents earned two more.G2532G5615G3588G1417G846G2532G2770G243G1417 18But the one who received one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground, and buried his master's money.G1161G2983G1520G565G3736G1722G1093G2532G613G846G2962G694 19"After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.G1161G3326G4183G5550G2962G1565G1401G2064G2532G4868G3056G3326G846 20The one who had received five talents came up and brought five more talents, saying, 'Master, you gave me five talents. See, I've earned five more talents.'G2532G2983G4002G5007G4334G4374G243G4002G5007G3004G2962G3860G3427G4002G5007G2396G2770G1909G846G4002G5007G243 21His master said to him, 'Well done, good and trustworthy servant! Since you have been trustworthy with a small amount, I will put you in charge of a large amount. Come and share your master's joy!'G1161G846G2962G5346G846G2095G18G2532G4103G1401G2258G4103G1909G3641G2525G4571G2525G1909G4183G1525G1519G5479G4675G2962 22"The one with two talents also came forward and said, 'Master, you gave me two talents. See, I've earned two more talents.'G1161G2532G2983G1417G5007G4334G2036G2962G3860G3427G1417G5007G2396G2770G1417G243G5007G1909G846 23His master said to him, 'Well done, good and trustworthy servant! Since you have been trustworthy with a small amount, I will put you in charge of a large amount. Come and share your master's joy!'G846G2962G5346G846G2095G18G2532G4103G1401G2258G4103G1909G3641G2525G4571G2525G1909G4183G1525G1519G5479G4675G2962 24"Then the one who had received one talent came forward and said, 'Master, I knew that you were a hard man, harvesting where you haven't planted and gathering where you haven't scattered any seed.G1161G2532G2983G1520G5007G4334G2036G2962G1097G4571G3754G1488G4642G444G2325G3699G4687G3756G4687G2532G4863G3606G1287G3756G1287 25Being afraid, I went off and hid your talent in the ground. Here, take what is yours!'G2532G5399G565G2928G4675G5007G1722G1093G2396G2192G4674 26"His master answered him, 'You evil and lazy servant! So you knew that I harvested where I haven't planted and gathered where I haven't scattered any seed -G1161G846G2962G611G2036G846G4190G2532G3636G1401G1492G3754G2325G3699G4687G3756G2532G4863G3606G1287G3756G1287 27Then you should have invested my money with the bankers. When I returned, I would have received my money back with interest.'G4571G1163G3767G906G3450G694G5133G2532G2064G1473G302G2865G1699G4862G5110 28Then the master said, 'Take the talent from him and give it to the man who has the ten talents,G142G3767G5007G575G846G2532G1325G2192G1176G5007 29because to everyone who has something, more will be given, and he will have more than enough. But from the person who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away from him.G1063G3956G2192G1325G2532G4052G1161G575G846G2192G3361G142G575G2532G3739G2192 30Throw this useless servant into the darkness outside! In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'"G2532G1544G888G1401G1519G1857G4655G1563G2071G2805G2532G1030G3599 31"When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels are with him, he will sit on his glorious throne.G1161G3752G5207G444G2064G1722G846G1391G2532G3956G40G32G3326G846G5119G2523G1909G2362G846G1391 32All the nations will be assembled in front of him, and he will cull them out, one from another, like a shepherd separates sheep from goats.G2532G1715G846G4863G3956G1484G2532G873G846G240G575G240G5618G4166G873G4263G575G2056 33He will put the sheep on his right but the goats on his left.G2532G2476G3303G4263G1537G846G1188G1161G2055G1537G2176 34"Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who have been blessed by my Father! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world,G5119G935G2046G1537G846G1188G1205G2127G3450G3962G2816G932G2090G5213G575G2602G2889 35because I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you welcomed me.G1063G3983G2532G1325G3427G5315G1372G2532G4222G3165G4222G2252G3581G2532G4863G3165G4863 36I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.'G1131G2532G4016G3165G770G2532G1980G3165G2252G1722G5438G2532G2064G4314G3165 37"Then the righteous will say to him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and give you something to eat, or thirsty and give you something to drink -G5119G1342G611G846G3004G2962G4219G1492G4571G3983G2532G5142G2228G1372G2532G4222 38When did we see you as a stranger and welcome you, or see you naked and clothe you -G1161G4219G1492G4571G3581G2532G4863G2228G1131G2532G4016 39When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?'G1161G4219G1492G4571G772G2228G1722G5438G2532G2064G4314G4571 40The king will answer them, 'I tell you with certainty, since you did it for one of the least important of these brothers of mine, you did it for me.'G2532G935G611G2046G846G281G3004G5213G1909G3745G4160G1520G1646G5130G3450G80G4160G1698 41"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Get away from me, you who are accursed, into the eternal fire that has been prepared for the devil and his angels!G5119G2046G2532G1537G2176G4198G575G1700G2672G1519G166G4442G2090G1228G2532G846G32 42Here's why: I was hungry, and you gave me nothing to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink.G1063G3983G2532G1325G3427G3756G5315G1372G2532G4222G3165G3756G4222 43I was a stranger, and you didn't welcome me. I was naked, and you didn't clothe me. I was sick and in prison, and you didn't visit me.'25G2252G3581G2532G4863G3165G3756G4863G1131G2532G4016G3165G3756G772G2532G1722G5438G2532G1980G3165G3756 44"Then they will reply, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or as a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and didn't help you?'G5119G846G2532G611G846G3004G2962G4219G1492G4571G3983G2228G1372G2228G3581G2228G1131G2228G772G2228G1722G5438G2532G1247G3756G1247G4671 45Then he will say to them, 'I tell you with certainty, since you didn't do it for one of the least important of these, you didn't do it for me.'G5119G611G846G3004G281G3004G5213G1909G3745G4160G3756G1520G1646G5130G4160G3761G1698 46These people will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life."G2532G3778G565G1519G166G2851G1161G1342G1519G2222G166
