The Parable of the Wise and Foolish Virgins

25"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.G5119G932G3772G3666G1176G3933G3748G2983G846G2985G1831G529G1519G3566 2"Now five of them were wise, and five were foolish.G1161G4002G1537G846G2258G5429G2532G4002G3474 3"Those who were foolish took their lamps and took no oil with them,G3748G3474G2983G846G1438G2985G2983G3756G1637G3326G1438 4"but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.G1161G5429G2983G1637G1722G846G30G3326G846G2985 5"But while the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.G1161G3566G5549G3956G3573G2532G2518 6"And at midnight a cry was heard: 'Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go out to meet him!'G1161G3319G3571G2906G1096G2400G3566G2064G1831G1519G529G846 7"Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.G5119G3956G1565G3933G1453G2532G2885G846G2985 8"And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.'G1161G3474G2036G5429G1325G2254G1537G5216G1637G3754G2257G2985G4570 9"But the wise answered, saying, 'No, lest there should not be enough for us and you; but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.'G1161G5429G611G3004G3379G714G3756G714G2254G2532G5213G1161G4198G3123G4314G4453G2532G59G1438 10"And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.G1161G846G565G59G3566G2064G2532G2092G1525G3326G846G1519G1062G2532G2374G2808 11"Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, 'Lord, Lord, open to us!'G1161G5305G2064G2532G3062G3933G3004G2962G2962G455G2254 12"But he answered and said, 'Assuredly, I say to you, I do not know you.'G1161G611G2036G281G3004G5213G1492G5209G3756 13"Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.G1127G3767G3754G1492G3756G2250G3761G5610G1722G3739G5207G444G2064

The Parable of the Talents

14"For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them.G1063G5618G444G589G2564G2398G1401G2532G3860G846G846G5224 15"And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey.G2532G3739G3303G1325G4002G5007G1161G3739G1417G1161G3739G1520G1538G2596G2398G1411G2532G2112G589 16"Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents.G1161G2983G4002G5007G4198G2038G1722G846G2532G4160G243G4002G5007 17"And likewise he who had received two gained two more also.G2532G5615G3588G1417G846G2532G2770G243G1417 18"But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord's money.G1161G2983G1520G565G3736G1722G1093G2532G613G846G2962G694 19"After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them.G1161G3326G4183G5550G2962G1565G1401G2064G2532G4868G3056G3326G846 20"So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, 'Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.'G2532G2983G4002G5007G4334G4374G243G4002G5007G3004G2962G3860G3427G4002G5007G2396G2770G1909G846G4002G5007G243 21"His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'G1161G846G2962G5346G846G2095G18G2532G4103G1401G2258G4103G1909G3641G2525G4571G2525G1909G4183G1525G1519G5479G4675G2962 22"He also who had received two talents came and said, 'Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.'G1161G2532G2983G1417G5007G4334G2036G2962G3860G3427G1417G5007G2396G2770G1417G243G5007G1909G846 23"His lord said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.'G846G2962G5346G846G2095G18G2532G4103G1401G2258G4103G1909G3641G2525G4571G2525G1909G4183G1525G1519G5479G4675G2962 24"Then he who had received the one talent came and said, 'Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed.G1161G2532G2983G1520G5007G4334G2036G2962G1097G4571G3754G1488G4642G444G2325G3699G4687G3756G4687G2532G4863G3606G1287G3756G1287 25'And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.'G2532G5399G565G2928G4675G5007G1722G1093G2396G2192G4674 26"But his lord answered and said to him, 'You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.G1161G846G2962G611G2036G846G4190G2532G3636G1401G1492G3754G2325G3699G4687G3756G2532G4863G3606G1287G3756G1287 27'So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest.G4571G1163G3767G906G3450G694G5133G2532G2064G1473G302G2865G1699G4862G5110 28'Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.G142G3767G5007G575G846G2532G1325G2192G1176G5007 29'For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.G1063G3956G2192G1325G2532G4052G1161G575G846G2192G3361G142G575G2532G3739G2192 30'And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'G2532G1544G888G1401G1519G1857G4655G1563G2071G2805G2532G1030G3599

The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations

31"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.G1161G3752G5207G444G2064G1722G846G1391G2532G3956G40G32G3326G846G5119G2523G1909G2362G846G1391 32"All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.G2532G1715G846G4863G3956G1484G2532G873G846G240G575G240G5618G4166G873G4263G575G2056 33"And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.G2532G2476G3303G4263G1537G846G1188G1161G2055G1537G2176 34"Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:G5119G935G2046G1537G846G1188G1205G2127G3450G3962G2816G932G2090G5213G575G2602G2889 35'for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;G1063G3983G2532G1325G3427G5315G1372G2532G4222G3165G4222G2252G3581G2532G4863G3165G4863 36'I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.'G1131G2532G4016G3165G770G2532G1980G3165G2252G1722G5438G2532G2064G4314G3165 37"Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?G5119G1342G611G846G3004G2962G4219G1492G4571G3983G2532G5142G2228G1372G2532G4222 38'When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?G1161G4219G1492G4571G3581G2532G4863G2228G1131G2532G4016 39'Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?'G1161G4219G1492G4571G772G2228G1722G5438G2532G2064G4314G4571 40"And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'G2532G935G611G2046G846G281G3004G5213G1909G3745G4160G1520G1646G5130G3450G80G4160G1698 41"Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:G5119G2046G2532G1537G2176G4198G575G1700G2672G1519G166G4442G2090G1228G2532G846G32 42'for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;G1063G3983G2532G1325G3427G3756G5315G1372G2532G4222G3165G3756G4222 43'I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.'G2252G3581G2532G4863G3165G3756G4863G1131G2532G4016G3165G3756G772G2532G1722G5438G2532G1980G3165G3756 44"Then they also will answer Him, saying, '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 45"Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.'G5119G611G846G3004G281G3004G5213G1909G3745G4160G3756G1520G1646G5130G4160G3761G1698 46"And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."G2532G3778G565G1519G166G2851G1161G1342G1519G2222G166
