Amplified Bible
25THEN THE kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.G5119G932G3772G3666G1176G3933G3748G2983G846G2985G1831G529G1519G3566 2Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent).G1161G4002G1537G846G2258G5429G2532G4002G3474 3For when the foolish took their lamps, they did not take any [extra] oil with them;G3748G3474G2983G846G1438G2985G2983G3756G1637G3326G1438 4But the wise took flasks of oil along with them [also] with their lamps.G1161G5429G2983G1637G1722G846G30G3326G846G2985 5While the bridegroom lingered {and} was slow in coming, they all began nodding their heads, and they fell asleep.G1161G3566G5549G3956G3573G2532G2518 6But at midnight there was a shout, Behold, the bridegroom! Go out to meet him!G1161G3319G3571G2906G1096G2400G3566G2064G1831G1519G529G846 7Then all those virgins got up and put their own lamps in order.G5119G3956G1565G3933G1453G2532G2885G846G2985 8And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.G1161G3474G2036G5429G1325G2254G1537G5216G1637G3754G2257G2985G4570 9But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves.G1161G5429G611G3004G3379G714G3756G714G2254G2532G5213G1161G4198G3123G4314G4453G2532G59G1438 10But while they were going away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were prepared went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut.G1161G846G565G59G3566G2064G2532G2092G1525G3326G846G1519G1062G2532G2374G2808 11Later the other virgins also came and said, Lord, Lord, open [the door] to us!G1161G5305G2064G2532G3062G3933G3004G2962G2962G455G2254 12But He replied, I solemnly declare to you, I do not know you [I am not acquainted with you].G1161G611G2036G281G3004G5213G1492G5209G3756 13Watch therefore [give strict attention and be cautious and active], for you know neither the day nor the hour {when the Son of Man will come.}G1127G3767G3754G1492G3756G2250G3761G5610G1722G3739G5207G444G2064 14For it is like a man who was about to take a long journey, and he called his servants together and entrusted them with his property.G1063G5618G444G589G2564G2398G1401G2532G3860G846G846G5224 15To one he gave five talents [probably about $5,000], to another two, to another one--to each in proportion to his own personal ability. Then he departed {and} left the country.G2532G3739G3303G1325G4002G5007G1161G3739G1417G1161G3739G1520G1538G2596G2398G1411G2532G2112G589 16He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them, and he gained five talents more.G1161G2983G4002G5007G4198G2038G1722G846G2532G4160G243G4002G5007 17And likewise he who had received the two talents--he also gained two talents more.G2532G5615G3588G1417G846G2532G2770G243G1417 18But he who had received the one talent went and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.G1161G2983G1520G565G3736G1722G1093G2532G613G846G2962G694 19Now after a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.G1161G3326G4183G5550G2962G1565G1401G2064G2532G4868G3056G3326G846 20And he who had received the five talents came and brought him five more, saying, Master, you entrusted to me five talents; see, here I have gained five talents more.G2532G2983G4002G5007G4334G4374G243G4002G5007G3004G2962G3860G3427G4002G5007G2396G2770G1909G846G4002G5007G243 21His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful {and} trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into {and} share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys.G1161G846G2962G5346G846G2095G18G2532G4103G1401G2258G4103G1909G3641G2525G4571G2525G1909G4183G1525G1519G5479G4675G2962 22And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, Master, you entrusted two talents to me; here I have gained two talents more.G1161G2532G2983G1417G5007G4334G2036G2962G3860G3427G1417G5007G2396G2770G1417G243G5007G1909G846 23His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful {and} trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much. Enter into {and} share the joy (the delight, the blessedness) which your master enjoys.G846G2962G5346G846G2095G18G2532G4103G1401G2258G4103G1909G3641G2525G4571G2525G1909G4183G1525G1519G5479G4675G2962 24He who had received one talent also came forward, saying, Master, I knew you to be a harsh {and} hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you had not winnowed [the grain].G1161G2532G2983G1520G5007G4334G2036G2962G1097G4571G3754G1488G4642G444G2325G3699G4687G3756G4687G2532G4863G3606G1287G3756G1287 25So I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is your own.G2532G5399G565G2928G4675G5007G1722G1093G2396G2192G4674 26But his master answered him, You wicked {and} lazy {and} idle servant! Did you indeed know that I reap where I have not sowed and gather [grain] where I have not winnowed?G1161G846G2962G611G2036G846G4190G2532G3636G1401G1492G3754G2325G3699G4687G3756G2532G4863G3606G1287G3756G1287 27Then you should have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received what was my own with interest.G4571G1163G3767G906G3450G694G5133G2532G2064G1473G302G2865G1699G4862G5110 28So take the talent away from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.G142G3767G5007G575G846G2532G1325G2192G1176G5007 29For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will be furnished richly so that he will have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have will be taken away.G1063G3956G2192G1325G2532G4052G1161G575G846G2192G3361G142G575G2532G3739G2192 30And throw the good-for-nothing servant into the outer darkness; there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.G2532G1544G888G1401G1519G1857G4655G1563G2071G2805G2532G1030G3599 31When the Son of Man comes in His glory (His majesty and splendor), and all the {holy} angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.G1161G3752G5207G444G2064G1722G846G1391G2532G3956G40G32G3326G846G5119G2523G1909G2362G846G1391 32All nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them [the people] from one another as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats;G2532G1715G846G4863G3956G1484G2532G873G846G240G575G240G5618G4166G873G4263G575G2056 33And He will cause the sheep to stand at His right hand, but the goats at His left.G2532G2476G3303G4263G1537G846G1188G1161G2055G1537G2176 34Then the King will say to those at His right hand, Come, you blessed of My Father [you favored of God and appointed to eternal salvation], inherit (receive as your own) the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.G5119G935G2046G1537G846G1188G1205G2127G3450G3962G2816G932G2090G5213G575G2602G2889 35For I was hungry and you gave Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you brought Me together with yourselves {and} welcomed {and} entertained {and} lodged Me,G1063G3983G2532G1325G3427G5315G1372G2532G4222G3165G4222G2252G3581G2532G4863G3165G4863 36I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited Me with help {and} ministering care, I was in prison and you came to see Me.G1131G2532G4016G3165G770G2532G1980G3165G2252G1722G5438G2532G2064G4314G3165 37Then the just {and} upright will answer Him, Lord, when did we see You hungry and gave You food, or thirsty and gave You something to drink?G5119G1342G611G846G3004G2962G4219G1492G4571G3983G2532G5142G2228G1372G2532G4222 38And when did we see You a stranger and welcomed {and} entertained You, or naked and clothed You?G1161G4219G1492G4571G3581G2532G4863G2228G1131G2532G4016 39And when did we see You sick or in prison and came to visit You?G1161G4219G1492G4571G772G2228G1722G5438G2532G2064G4314G4571 40And the King will reply to them, Truly I tell you, in so far as you did it for one of the least [in the estimation of men] of these My brethren, you did it for Me.G2532G935G611G2046G846G281G3004G5213G1909G3745G4160G1520G1646G5130G3450G80G4160G1698 41Then He will say to those at His left hand, Begone from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels!G5119G2046G2532G1537G2176G4198G575G1700G2672G1519G166G4442G2090G1228G2532G846G32 42For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink,G1063G3983G2532G1325G3427G3756G5315G1372G2532G4222G3165G3756G4222 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome Me {and} entertain Me, I was naked and you did not clothe Me, I was sick and in prison and you did not visit Me with help {and} ministering care.G2252G3581G2532G4863G3165G3756G4863G1131G2532G4016G3165G3756G772G2532G1722G5438G2532G1980G3165G3756 44Then they also [in their turn] will answer, Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?G5119G846G2532G611G846G3004G2962G4219G1492G4571G3983G2228G1372G2228G3581G2228G1131G2228G772G2228G1722G5438G2532G1247G3756G1247G4671 45And He will reply to them, Solemnly I declare to you, in so far as you failed to do it for the least [in the estimation of men] of these, you failed to do it for Me.G5119G611G846G3004G281G3004G5213G1909G3745G4160G3756G1520G1646G5130G4160G3761G1698 46Then they will go away into eternal punishment, but those who are just {and} upright {and} in right standing with God into eternal life.G2532G3778G565G1519G166G2851G1161G1342G1519G2222G166
