Chapter 25

31.1
“But 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.
32.1
Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
33.1
He will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34.1
Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;
35.1
for I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you took me in.
36.1
I was naked and you clothed me. I was sick and you visited me. I was in prison and you came to me.’
37.1
“Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink?
38.1
When did we see you as a stranger and take you in, or naked and clothe you?
39.1
When did we see you sick or in prison and come to you?’
40.1
“The King will answer them, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
41.1
Then he will say also to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire which is prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you didn’t give me food to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink;
43.1
I was a stranger, and you didn’t take me in; naked, and you didn’t clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’
44.1
“Then they will also answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn’t help you?’
45.1
“Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you didn’t do it to one of the least of these, you didn’t do it to me.’
46.1
These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Chapter 26

1.1
When Jesus had finished all these words, he said to his disciples,
2.1
“You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.”
3.1
Then the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders of the people were gathered together in the court of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas.
4.1
They took counsel together that they might take Jesus by deceit and kill him.
24.1
The Son of Man goes even as it is written of him,
24.2
but woe to that man through whom the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he had not been born.”
25.1
Judas, who betrayed him, answered, “It isn’t me, is it, Rabbi?” He said to him, “You said it.”
26.1
As they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks for it, and broke it. He gave to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.”
28.1
He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave to them, saying, “All of you drink it, for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is poured out for many for the remission of sins.
29.1
But I tell you that I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on, until that day when I drink it anew with you in my Father’s Kingdom.”

Chapter 25

1
“Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
Then[G5119] the[G1519] Kingdom[G932] of[G3588] Heaven[G3772] will[G3748] be[G1519] like[G3666] ten[G1176] virgins[G3933] who[G3588] took[G2983] their[G1438] lamps[G2985] and[G3772] went[G1831] out[G1831] to[G1519] meet[G5222] the[G1519] bridegroom.[G3566]
2
Five of them were foolish, and five were wise.
Five[G4002] of[G1537] them[G2532] were[G1510] foolish,[G3474] and[G2532] five[G4002] were[G1510] wise.[G5429]
3
Those who were foolish, when they took their lamps, took no oil with them,
Those[G3588] who[G3588] were[G3588] foolish,[G3474] when[G3326] they[G3588] took[G2983] their[G1438] lamps,[G2985] took[G2983] no[G3756] oil[G1637] with[G3326] them,[G3588]
4
but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
but[G1161] the[G1722] wise[G5429] took[G2983] oil[G1637] in[G1722] their[G1438] vessels[G4632] with[G3326] their[G1438] lamps.[G2985]
5
Now while the bridegroom delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
Now[G1161] while[G1161] the[G2532] bridegroom[G3566] delayed,[G1019] they[G2532] all[G3956] slumbered[G3573] and[G2532] slept.[G2518]
6
But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Behold! The bridegroom is coming! Come out to meet him!’
But[G1161] at[G1519] midnight[G3319] there[G1161] was[G1096] a[G1096] cry,[G2906] ‘Behold![G2400] The[G1519] bridegroom[G3566] is[G3588] coming![G1831] Come[G1096] out[G1831] to[G1519] meet[G3588] him!’[G3588]
7
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.[1]
Then[G2532] all[G3956] those[G3588] virgins[G3933] arose,[G1453] and[G2532] trimmed[G2885] their[G1438] lamps.[G2985]
8
The foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’
The[G1537] foolish[G3474] said[G3004] to[G3004] the[G1537] wise,[G5429] ‘Give[G1325] us[G1325] some[G3588] of[G1537] your[G3588] oil,[G1637] for[G3754] our[G1161] lamps[G2985] are[G3588] going[G4570] out.’[G1537]
9
But the wise answered, saying, ‘What if there isn’t enough for us and you? You go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’
But[G1161] the[G2532] wise[G5429] answered,[G3004] saying,[G3004] ‘What[G3588] if[G2532] there[G2532] isn’t[G3756] enough[G2480] for[G4314] us[G3004] and[G2532] you?[G5210] You[G5210] go[G4198] rather[G3123] to[G4314] those[G3588] who[G3588] sell,[G4453] and[G2532] buy[G59] for[G4314] yourselves.’[G1438]
10
While they went away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut.
While[G1161] they[G2532] went[G2064] away[G3326] to[G1519] buy,[G59] the[G2532] bridegroom[G3566] came,[G2064] and[G2532] those[G3588] who[G3588] were[G3588] ready[G2092] went[G2064] in[G1519] with[G3326] him[G3588] to[G1519] the[G2532] wedding[G1062] feast,[G1062] and[G2532] the[G2532] door[G2374] was[G3588] shut.[G2808]
11
Afterward the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, Lord, open to us.’
Afterward[G5305] the[G2532] other[G3062] virgins[G3933] also[G2532] came,[G2064] saying,[G3004] ‘Lord,[G2962] Lord,[G2962] open[G455] to[G2532] us.’[G3004]
12
But he answered, ‘Most certainly I tell you, I don’t know you.’
But[G1161] he[G1161] answered,[G3004] ‘Most[G4183] certainly[G3756] I[G1161] tell[G3004] you,[G5210] I[G1161] don’t[G3756] know[G1492] you.’[G5210]
13
Watch therefore, for you don’t know the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
Watch[G1127] therefore,[G3767] for[G3754] you[G3754] don’t[G3756] know[G1492] the[G3588] day[G2250] nor[G3761] the[G3588] hour[G5610] in[G3756] which[G3588] the[G3588] Son[G5207] of[G2250] Man[G3756] is[G3588] coming.[G2064]
14
“For it is like a man going into another country, who called his own servants and entrusted his goods to them.
For[G1063] it[G2532] is[G3588] like[G5618] a[G2532] man[G444] going[G2532] into[G3860] another[G3588] country,[G5561] who[G3588] called[G2564] his[G2398] own[G2398] servants[G1401] and[G2532] entrusted[G3860] his[G2398] goods[G5224] to[G2532] them.[G3588]
15
To one he gave five talents,[1] to another two, to another one, to each according to his own ability. Then he went on his journey.
To[G2532] one[G1520] he[G2532] gave[G1325] five[G4002] talents,[G5007] to[G2532] another[G3739] two,[G1417] to[G2532] another[G3739] one,[G1520] to[G2532] each[G1538] according[G2596] to[G2532] his[G2398] own[G2398] ability.[G1411] Then[G2532] he[G2532] went[G2532] on[G2596] his[G2398] journey.[G3598]
16
Immediately he who received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents.
Immediately[G2112] he[G2532] who[G3588] received[G2983] the[G1722] five[G4002] talents[G5007] went[G4198] and[G2532] traded[G2038] with[G1722] them,[G3588] and[G2532] made[G4160] another[G3588] five[G4002] talents.[G5007]
17
In the same way, he also who got the two gained another two.
In[G3588] the[G3588] same[G5615] way,[G5615] he[G3588] also[G2532] who[G3588] got[G450] the[G3588] two[G1417] gained[G2770] another[G3588] two.[G1417]
18
But he who received the one talent went away and dug in the earth and hid his lord’s money.
But[G1161] he[G2532] who[G3588] received[G2983] the[G2532] one[G1520] talent[G5007] went[G2532] away[G142] and[G2532] dug[G3736] in[G2532] the[G2532] earth[G1093] and[G2532] hid[G2928] his[G2983] lord’s[G2962] money.[G694]
19
“Now after a long time the lord of those servants came, and settled accounts with them.
Now[G1161] after[G3326] a[G2532] long[G4183] time[G5550] the[G2532] lord[G2962] of[G3056] those[G3588] servants[G1401] came,[G2064] and[G2532] settled[G4868] accounts[G3056] with[G3326] them.[G3588]
20
He who received the five talents came and brought another five talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents. Behold, I have gained another five talents in addition to them.’
He[G2532] who[G3588] received[G2983] the[G2532] five[G4002] talents[G5007] came[G4334] and[G2532] brought[G4374] another[G3588] five[G4002] talents,[G5007] saying,[G3004] ‘Lord,[G2962] you[G3708] delivered[G3860] to[G2532] me[G1473] five[G4002] talents.[G5007] Behold,[G2396] I[G1473] have[G2532] gained[G2770] another[G3588] five[G4002] talents[G5007] in[G2532] addition to[G2532] them.’[G3588]
21
“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
His[G1519] lord[G2962] said[G5346] to[G1519] him,[G3588] ‘Well[G2532] done,[G2095] good[G2095] and[G2532] faithful[G4103] servant.[G1401] You[G4771] have[G2532] been[G1510] faithful[G4103] over[G1909] a[G2532] few[G3641] things,[G3588] I[G2532] will[G1510] set[G2525] you[G4771] over[G1909] many[G4183] things.[G3588] Enter[G1525] into[G1519] the[G2532] joy[G5479] of[G2532] your[G2962] lord.’[G2962]
22
“He also who got the two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents. Behold, I have gained another two talents in addition to them.’
He[G2532] also[G2532] who[G3588] got[G450] the[G2532] two[G1417] talents[G5007] came[G4334] and[G2532] said,[G3004] ‘Lord,[G2962] you[G3708] delivered[G3860] to[G2532] me[G1473] two[G1417] talents.[G5007] Behold,[G2396] I[G1473] have[G2532] gained[G2770] another[G3588] two[G1417] talents[G5007] in[G2532] addition to[G2532] them.’[G3588]
23
“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things. I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
His[G1519] lord[G2962] said[G5346] to[G1519] him,[G3588] ‘Well[G2532] done,[G2095] good[G2095] and[G2532] faithful[G4103] servant.[G1401] You[G4771] have[G2532] been[G1510] faithful[G4103] over[G1909] a[G2532] few[G3641] things.[G3588] I[G2532] will[G1510] set[G2525] you[G4771] over[G1909] many[G4183] things.[G3588] Enter[G1525] into[G1519] the[G2532] joy[G5479] of[G2532] your[G2962] lord.’[G2962]
24
“He also who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you that you are a hard man, reaping where you didn’t sow, and gathering where you didn’t scatter.
He[G2532] also[G2532] who[G3588] had[G2532] received[G2983] the[G2532] one[G1520] talent[G5007] came[G4334] and[G2532] said,[G3004] ‘Lord,[G2962] I[G2532] knew[G1097] you[G4771] that[G3754] you[G4771] are[G1510] a[G2532] hard[G4642] man,[G1520] reaping[G2325] where[G3699] you[G4771] didn’t[G3756] sow,[G4687] and[G2532] gathering[G4863] where[G3699] you[G4771] didn’t[G3756] scatter.[G1287]
25
I was afraid, and went away and hid your talent in the earth. Behold, you have what is yours.’
I[G2532] was[G3588] afraid,[G5399] and[G2532] went[G2532] away[G142] and[G2532] hid[G2928] your[G4674] talent[G5007] in[G1722] the[G1722] earth.[G1093] Behold,[G2396] you[G4771] have[G2192] what[G3588] is[G3588] yours.’[G4771]
26
“But his lord answered him, ‘You wicked and slothful servant. You knew that I reap where I didn’t sow, and gather where I didn’t scatter.
But[G1161] his[G2532] lord[G2962] answered[G3004] him,[G3588] ‘You[G3754] wicked[G4190] and[G2532] slothful[G3636] servant.[G1401] You[G3754] knew[G1492] that[G3754] I[G2532] reap[G2325] where[G3699] I[G2532] didn’t[G3756] sow,[G4687] and[G2532] gather[G4863] where[G3699] I[G2532] didn’t[G3756] scatter.[G1287]
27
You ought therefore to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received back my own with interest.
You[G4771] ought[G1163] therefore[G3767] to[G2532] have[G2532] deposited[G906] my[G1699] money[G694] with[G4862] the[G2532] bankers,[G5133] and[G2532] at[G3588] my[G1699] coming[G2064] I[G1473] should[G1163] have[G2532] received[G2865] back[G2865] my[G1699] own[G1699] with[G4862] interest.[G5110]
28
Take away therefore the talent from him and give it to him who has the ten talents.
Take[G2192] away[G142] therefore[G3767] the[G2532] talent[G5007] from[G2532] him[G3588] and[G2532] give[G1325] it[G2532] to[G2532] him[G3588] who[G3588] has[G2192] the[G2532] ten[G1176] talents.[G5007]
29
For to everyone who has will be given, and he will have abundance, but from him who doesn’t have, even that which he has will be taken away.
For[G1063] to[G2532] everyone[G3956] who[G3739] has[G2192] will[G2532] be[G2532] given,[G1325] and[G2532] he[G2532] will[G2532] have[G2192] abundance,[G4052] but[G1161] from[G2532] him[G3588] who[G3739] doesn’t[G3361] have,[G2192] even[G2532] that[G3739] which[G3739] he[G2532] has[G2192] will[G2532] be[G2532] taken[G2983] away.[G142]
30
Throw out the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
Throw[G1544] out[G1544] the[G2532] unprofitable[G512] servant[G1401] into[G1519] the[G2532] outer[G1857] darkness,[G4655] where[G1519] there[G1563] will[G1510] be[G1510] weeping[G2805] and[G2532] gnashing[G1030] of[G2532] teeth.’[G3599]
31

“But 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.

But[G1161] when[G3752] the[G1722] Son[G5207] of[G5207] Man[G3956] comes[G2064] in[G1722] his[G846] glory,[G1391] and[G2532] all[G3956] the[G1722] holy[G40] angels[G32] with[G3326] him,[G846] then[G25119] he[G2532] will[G2532] sit[G2523] on[G1909] the[G1722] throne[G2362] of[G5207] his[G3956] glory.[G1391]

32

Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.

Before[G1715] him[G3588] all[G3956] the[G2532] nations[G1484] will[G2532] be[G2532] gathered,[G4863] and[G2532] he[G2532] will[G2532] separate[G5563] them[G3588] one[G3956] from[G2532] another,[G1438] as[G5618] a[G2532] shepherd[G4166] separates[G873] the[G2532] sheep[G4263] from[G2532] the[G2532] goats.[G2056]
33
He will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
He[G2532] will[G2532] set[G2476] the[G2532] sheep[G4263] on[G1537] his[G2532] right[G1188] hand,[G1188] but[G1161] the[G2532] goats[G2055] on[G1537] the[G2532] left.[G2176]
34

Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;

Then[G5119] the[G1537] King[G935] will[G1473] tell[G3004] those[G3588] on[G1537] his[G3588] right[G1188] hand,[G1188] ‘Come,[G1205] blessed[G2127] of[G1537] my[G1473] Father,[G3962] inherit[G2816] the[G1537] Kingdom[G932] prepared[G2090] for[G2090] you[G5210] from[G1537] the[G1537] foundation[G2602] of[G1537] the[G1537] world;[G2889]

35
for I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me drink. I was a stranger and you took me in.
for[G1063] I[G1473] was[G1510] hungry[G3983] and[G2532] you[G1325] gave[G1325] me[G1325] food[G5315] to[G2532] eat.[G2068] I[G1473] was[G1510] thirsty[G1372] and[G2532] you[G1325] gave[G1325] me[G1325] drink.[G4222] I[G1473] was[G1510] a[G2532] stranger[G3581] and[G2532] you[G1325] took[G2532] me[G1325] in.[G2532]

42

for[G1063] I[G1473] was[G2532] hungry,[G3983] and[G2532] you[G1325] didn’t[G3756] give[G1325] me[G1325] food[G5315] to[G2532] eat;[G2068] I[G1473] was[G2532] thirsty,[G1372] and[G2532] you[G1325] gave[G1325] me[G1325] no[G3756] drink;[G4222]

“Then they will also answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn’t help you?’
Then[G2532] they[G2532] will[G2532] also[G2532] answer,[G611] saying,[G3004] ‘Lord,[G2962] when[G2532] did[G2532] we[G2532] see[G3708] you[G4771] hungry,[G3983] or[G2228] thirsty,[G1372] or[G2228] a[G2532] stranger,[G3581] or[G2228] naked,[G1131] or[G2228] sick,[G770] or[G2228] in[G1722] prison,[G5438] and[G2532] didn’t[G3756] help[G997] you?’[G4771]

These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

These[G3778] will[G2532] go away[G565] into[G1519] eternal[G166] punishment,[G2851] but[G1161] the[G2532] righteous[G1342] into[G1519] eternal[G166] life.”[G2222]

Chapter 26

1
When Jesus had finished all these words, he said to his disciples,
2

“You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.”

3

Then the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders of the people were gathered together in the court of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas.

4

They took counsel together that they might take Jesus by deceit and kill him.

5

9

10
However, knowing this, Jesus said to them, “Why do you trouble the woman? She has done a good work for me.
