Matthew 25

The parable of the ten virgins,

Matthew 25:1 Then shal the kyngdome of heauen be like vnto ten virgins, which toke their lapes, and wente forth to mete the brydegome. Matthew 25:2 But fyue of them were foolish, and fyue were wyse. Matthew 25:3 The foolish toke their lapes, neuertheles they toke none oyle with them. Matthew 25:4 But the wyse toke oyle in their vessels with their lampes. Matthew 25:5 Now whyle the brydegrome taried, they slombred all and slepte. Matthew 25:6 But at mydnight there was a crye made: Beholde, the brydegrome commeth, go youre waye out for to mete him. Matthew 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and prepared their lampes. Matthew 25:8 But the foolish sayde vnto the wyse: geue vs of youre oyle, for oure lapes are gone out. Matthew 25:9 Then answered the wyse, and sayde: Not so, lest there be not ynough for vs and you, but go rather vnto them that sell, and bye for youre selues. Matthew 25:10 And whyle they wente to bye, the brydegrome came: and they that were readye, wente in with him vnto the mariage, and the gate was shut vp. Matthew 25:11 At ye last came ye other virgins also, and sayde: LORDE LORDE, opo vnto vs. Matthew 25:12 But he answered, and sayde: Verely I saye vnto you: I knowe you not. Matthew 25:13 Watch ye therfore, for ye knowe nether the daye ner yet the houre, whan ye sonne of man shal come.

and of the talents.

Matthew 25:14 Like wyse as a certayne ma ready to take his iourney into a straunge countre, called his seruautes, and delyuered his goodes vnto the. Matthew 25:15 And vnto one he gaue fyue talentes, to another two, and to another one: vnto euery man after his abilyte, and straight waye departed. Matthew 25:16 Then he that had receaued the fyue talentes, wente and occupied with the same, and wanne other fyue talentes. Matthew 25:17 Likewyse he yt receaued two talentes, wane other two also. Matthew 25:18 But he that receaued ye one wente and dygged a pyt in the earth, and hyd his lordes money. Matthew 25:19 After a longe season the lorde of those seruauntes came, and rekened with them. Matthew 25:20 Then came he that had receaued fyue talentes, and brought other fyue talentes, and sayde: Syr, thou delyuerdst vnto me fyue talentes: Beholde, with them haue I wonne fyue taletes mo. Matthew 25:21 Then sayde his lorde vnto hi: wel thou good & faithfull seruaunt, thou hast bene faithfull ouer litle, I wil set the ouer moch: entre thou in to the ioye of thy lorde. Matthew 25:22 The came he also that had receaued two talentes, and sayde: Syr, thou delyuerdst vnto me two talentes: Beholde, I haue wonne two other taletes with the. Matthew 25:23 His lorde sayde vnto him: Wel thou good and faithfull seruaut, thou hast bene faithfull ouer litle, I wil set the ouer moch: entre thou in to the ioye of thy lorde. Matthew 25:24 Then he that had receaued the one talet, came and sayde: Syr, I knew that thou art an hard man: thou reapest where thou hast not sowen, and gatherest where thou hast not strowed, Matthew 25:25 and so I was afrayed, and wete and hyd thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast thine owne. Matthew 25:26 But his lorde answered, and sayde vnto him: Thou euell and slouthfull seruaunt, knewest thou that I reape where I sowed not, and gather where I strawed not? Matthew 25:27 Thou shuldest therfore haue had my money to the chaungers, and then at my commynge shulde I haue receaued myne owne with vauntage. Matthew 25:28 Therfore take the talent fro him, and geue it vnto him that hath ten talentes. Matthew 25:29 For who so hath, to him shalbe geuen, and he shal haue abundaunce. But who so hath not, fro him shalbe take awaye euen that he hath. Matthew 25:30 And cast the vnprofitable seruaunt in to vtter darcknes: there shalbe waylinge and gnasshinge of teth.

Also the description of the last judgment.

Matthew 25:31 But whan the sonne of man shal come in his glory, and all holy angels with him, then shal he syt vpon the seate of his glory. Matthew 25:32 And all people shalbe gathered before him: and he shal separate them one from another as a shepherde deuydeth the shepe from ye goates. Matthew 25:33 And he shal set ye shepe on his right honde, and the goates on the lefte. Matthew 25:34 Then shal the kynge saye vnto them that shalbe on his right honde: Come hither ye blessed of my father, inheret ye ye kingdome, which is prepared for you from the begynnynge of the worlde. Matthew 25:35 For I was hongrie, and ye gaue me meate: I was thirstie, and ye gaue me drynke: I was harbourlesse, and ye lodged me: Matthew 25:36 I was naked, & ye clothed me: I was sicke, and ye vysited me: I was in preson, and ye came vnto me. Matthew 25:37 Then shal the righteous answere him, & saye: LORDE, whe sawe we the hogrie, and fed the? Or thirstie, and gaue the drynke? Matthew 25:38 When sawe we the herbourlesse, and lodged the? Or naked, and clothed ye? Matthew 25:39 Or whe sawe we ye sicke or in preson, and came vnto the? Matthew 25:40 And the kynge shal answer and saye vnto them: Verely I saye vnto you: Loke what ye haue done vnto one of the least of these my brethren, the same haue ye done vnto me. Matthew 25:41 Then shal he saye also vnto them that shalbe on the left hande: Departe fro me ye cursed in to the euerlastinge fyre, which is prepared for the deuell and his angels. Matthew 25:42 For I was hogrie, and ye gaue me no meate: I was thirstye, and ye gaue me no drynke: Matthew 25:43 I was herbourlesse, and ye lodged me not: I was naked, and ye clothed me not: I was sicke and in preson, and ye vysited me not. Matthew 25:44 Then shal they also answere hi, and saye: LORDE, when sawe we the hogrie, or thyrstie, or herbourlesse, or naked, or sicke, or in preson, and haue not mynistred vnto the? Matthew 25:45 The shal he answere them, and saye: Verely I saye vnto you: Loke what ye haue not done vnto one of the leest of these, the same haue ye not done vnto me. Matthew 25:46 And these shal go in to euerlastinge payne, but the righteous in to euerlastinge life.
