Matthew 25

The parable of the ten virgins,

Matthew 25:1 Then shall þe kyngdom of heauen be like vnto ten virgins, which toke their lampes, & went to mete þe brydgrome Matthew 25:2 But fyue of them were foolysshe, & fyue were wise. Matthew 25:3 They þt were folysshe, toke their lampes, but toke none oyle wt them. Matthew 25:4 But þe wyse toke oyle wt them in their vessels with þe lampes also. Matthew 25:5 Whyle the brydegrome taryed, they all slombred & slept. Matthew 25:6 And euen at midnyght, there was a crye made: behold, the brydgrome commeth, go out to mete hym. Matthew 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, & prepared theyr lampes. Matthew 25:8 So the folysshe sayde vnto the wyse: geue vs of youre oyle: for oure lampes are gone out. Matthew 25:9 But the wyse answered, sayinge: not so, lest ther be not ynough for vs and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, & by for your selues. Matthew 25:10 And whyll they went to bye, the brydgrome came: & they that were ready went in with hym to the mariage, & the gate was shut vp. Matthew 25:11 Afterwarde came also þe other virgins, saying: Lorde, Lorde, open to vs. Matthew 25:12 But he answered & sayd: verely I saye vnto you: I knowe you not. Matthew 25:13 Watche therfore: for ye knowe nether the daye nor yet the houre wherin the sonne of man shall come.

and of the talents.

Matthew 25:14 Lykewise as a certeine man ready to take his iorney to a straunge countre, called his seruauntes, & delyuered vnto them hys goodes. Matthew 25:15 And vnto one he gaue .v. talentes, to another .ij. & to another one: to euery man after his habilite, & streight waye departed. Matthew 25:16 Then he þt had receaued the fyue talentes, went, & occupied wt the same, & wanne other fyue talentes. Matthew 25:17 Lykewyse also, he þt receaued two, gayned other two. Matthew 25:18 But he that receaued that one, went & dygged in the erth, and hid his Lordes money. Matthew 25:19 After a longe season, the Lorde of those seruauntes came, and rekened wyth them. Matthew 25:20 And so he that had receaued fyue talentes came, & brought other fyue talentes, sayinge: Sir, thou delyueredst vnto me fyue talentes: beholde, I haue gayned with them fyue talentes moo: Matthew 25:21 His Lord sayde vnto him: well thou good and faythfull seruaunt. Thou hast bene faythfull ouer fewe thinges, I wyll make the ruler ouer many thinges: entre thou into the ioye of thy Lorde. Matthew 25:22 He also that had receaued two talentes, came and sayde: Sir, thou delyueredst vnto me two talentes: beholde, I haue wone two other talentes with them: Matthew 25:23 his Lord sayd vnto him: well good & faythfull seruaunt. Thou hast bene faythfull ouer fewe thinges. I will make the ruler ouer many thinges: Entre þu into the ioye of thy Lorde. Matthew 25:24 Then he whych had receaued the one talent, came, & sayd: Sir I knewe the þt thou art an harde man: reaping where thou hast not sowen, & gathering where thou hast not strawed, Matthew 25:25 and therfore was I afrayde, & went, and hyd thy talent in the erth: lo, there thou hast þt thine is. Matthew 25:26 His lord answered & sayd vnto him thou euyll & slowthfull seruaunt, thou knewest, þt I reape where I sowed not, & gather, where I haue not strawed: Matthew 25:27 þu oughtest therfore to haue delyuered my money to the exchaungers, & then at my commynge shulde I haue receaued myne awne with vauntage. Matthew 25:28 Take therfore the talent from hym, & geue it vnto hym which hath ten talentes. Matthew 25:29 For vnto euery one that hath shalbe geuen, and he shall haue aboundance: But he that hath not, from hym shalbe taken awaye, euen that which he hath. Matthew 25:30 And cast the vnprofytable seruaunt into vtter dercknes there shalbe wepinge and gnasshinge of teeth.

Also the description of the last judgment.

Matthew 25:31 When the sonne of man commeth in his glorye, & all the holy angels wyth him, then shall he syt vpon the seate of hys glorie, Matthew 25:32 and before him shalbe gathered all nacions. And he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherde deuydeth the shepe from the goates: Matthew 25:33 and he shall set the shepe on hys ryght hande, but the goates on the lyfte. Matthew 25:34 Then shall the Kynge saye to them þt shalbe on hys ryghte hande: Come ye blessed of my father, inheret the kyngdome prepared for you from the begynninge of the worlde. Matthew 25:35 For I was an hongred, & ye gaue me meate. I was thyrstye, & ye gaue me drincke. I was herbourlesse, & ye toke me in: Matthew 25:36 Naked, & ye clothed me: Sicke & ye visyted me. I was in preson, and ye came vnto me. Matthew 25:37 Then shall the righteous answere him saying: Lord, when sawe we the an hongred, and fedd the? or thirstye, & gaue þe drinke? Matthew 25:38 when sawe we þe herborlesse, & tooke þe in? or naked, and clothed the? Matthew 25:39 or when sawe we þe sycke, or in preson, and came vnto the? Matthew 25:40 And the kyng shall answere, and saye vnto them: veryly I saye vnto you: in as moch as ye haue done it vnto one of þe leest of these my brethren, ye haue done it to me. Matthew 25:41 Then shall he saye also vnto them, that shalbe on the lyfte hand: departe from me ye cursed into euerlastynge fyre: whych is prepared for the deuyll and his angels. Matthew 25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gaue me no meate. I was thirstye, and ye gaue me no drynke. Matthew 25:43 I was harborlesse, and ye toke me not in. I was naked, and ye clothed me not. I was sycke & in preson, and ye visyted me not. Matthew 25:44 Then shall they also answere him saying, lorde, when sawe we þe an hungred, or a thyrst, or herbourlesse, or naked, or sycke, or in preson, & dyd not minister vnto the? Matthew 25:45 Then shall he answere them sayeng: Uerely I saye vnto you, in as moche as ye dyd it not to one of the leest of these, ye dyd it not to me. Matthew 25:46 And these shall go into euerlastynge payne: the ryghteous into lyfe eternall.
