The parable of the ten virgins,
Matthew 25:1 Then ye kingdome of heauen shalbe likened vnto tenne virgins, which tooke their lampes, and went foorth to meete the bridegrome. Matthew 25:2 And fiue of them were wise, & fiue foolish. Matthew 25:3 The foolish tooke their lampes, but tooke none oyle with them. Matthew 25:4 But the wise tooke oyle in their vessels with their lampes. Matthew 25:5 Nowe while the bridegrome taried long, all slumbred and slept. Matthew 25:6 And at midnight there was a crie made, Behold, the bridegrome commeth: goe out to meete him. Matthew 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lampes. Matthew 25:8 And the foolish said to the wise, Giue vs of your oyle, for our lampes are out. Matthew 25:9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so, lest there will not be ynough for vs and you: but goe ye rather to them that sell, and bye for your selues. Matthew 25:10 And while they went to bye, the bridegrome came: and they that were readie, went in with him to the wedding, and the gate was shut. Matthew 25:11 Afterwards came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to vs. Matthew 25:12 But he answered, and said, Verely I say vnto you, I knowe you not. Matthew 25:13 Watch therfore: for ye know neither the day, nor the houre, when the sonne of man will come.
and of the talents.
Matthew 25:14 For the kingdome of heauen is as a man that going into a strange countrey, called his seruants, and deliuered to them his goods. Matthew 25:15 And vnto one he gaue fiue talents, & to an other two, and to another one, to euery man after his own habilitie, & straightway went fro home. Matthew 25:16 Then he that had receiued the fiue talents, went and occupied with them, and gained other fiue talents. Matthew 25:17 Likewise also, he that receiued two, he also gained other two. Matthew 25:18 But he that receiued that one, went & digged it in the earth, and hid his masters money. Matthew 25:19 But after a long season, the master of those seruants came, and reckoned with them. Matthew 25:20 Then came he that had receiued fiue talents, and brought other fiue talents, saying, Master, thou deliueredst vnto me fiue talents: behold, I haue gained with them other fiue talents. Matthew 25:21 Then his master saide vnto him, It is well done good seruant and faithfull, Thou hast bene faithfull in litle, I will make thee ruler ouer much: enter into thy masters ioy. Matthew 25:22 Also he that had receiued two talents, came, and said, Master, thou deliueredst vnto me two talents: behold, I haue gained two other talets more. Matthew 25:23 His master saide vnto him, It is well done good seruant, and faithfull, Thou hast bene faithfull in litle, I will make thee ruler ouer much: enter into thy masters ioy. Matthew 25:24 Then he which had receiued the one talent, came, & said, Master, I knewe that thou wast an hard man, which reapest where thou sowedst not, and gatherest where thou strawedst not: Matthew 25:25 I was therefore afraide, and went, & hid thy talent in the earth: behold, thou hast thine owne. Matthew 25:26 And his master answered, & said vnto him, Thou euill seruant, and slouthfull, thou knewest that I reape where I sowed not, and gather where I strawed not. Matthew 25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to haue put my money to ye exchangers, & then at my comming should I haue receiued mine owne with vantage. Matthew 25:28 Take therefore the talent from him, and giue it vnto him which hath tenne talents. Matthew 25:29 For vnto euery man that hath, it shall be giuen, and he shall haue abundance, and from him that hath not, euen that he hath, shalbe taken away. Matthew 25:30 Cast therefore that vnprofitable seruant into vtter darkenes: there shalbe weeping and gnasshing of teeth.
Also the description of the last judgment.
Matthew 25:31 And when the Sonne of man commeth in his glory, and all the holy Angels with him, then shall he sit vpon the throne of his glorie, Matthew 25:32 And before him shalbe gathered all nations, & he shal seperate them one from another, as a shepheard separateth the sheepe from ye goates. Matthew 25:33 And he shall set the sheepe on his right hand, and the goates on the left. Matthew 25:34 Then shall ye king say to them on his right hand, Come ye blessed of my father: take the inheritance of the kingdome prepared for you from the foundation of the world. Matthew 25:35 For I was an hungred, and ye gaue me meate: I thirsted, and ye gaue me drinke: I was a stranger, and ye tooke me in vnto you. Matthew 25:36 I was naked, & ye clothed me: I was sicke, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came vnto me. Matthew 25:37 Then shall the righteous answere him, saying, Lord, when sawe we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or a thirst, and gaue thee drinke? Matthew 25:38 And when sawe we thee a stranger, and tooke thee in vnto vs? or naked, & clothed thee? Matthew 25:39 Or when sawe we thee sicke, or in prison, and came vnto thee? Matthew 25:40 And the King shall answere, and say vnto them, Verely I say vnto you, in as much as ye haue done it vnto one of the least of these my brethre, ye haue done it to me. Matthew 25:41 Then shal he say vnto them on ye left hand, Depart from me ye cursed, into euerlasting fire, which is prepared for the deuill and his angels. Matthew 25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gaue me no meate: I thirsted, and ye gaue me no drinke: Matthew 25:43 I was a stranger, & ye tooke me not in vnto you: I was naked, & ye clothed me not: sicke, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Matthew 25:44 Then shall they also answere him, saying, Lord, when sawe we thee an hungred, or a thirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sicke, or in prison, and did not minister vnto thee? Matthew 25:45 Then shall he answere them, and say, Verely I say vnto you, in as much as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. Matthew 25:46 And these shall goe into euerlasting paine, and the righteous into life eternall.
