Matthew 25:31-46

The Final Judgment

31 aWhen the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, bthen he will sit on his glorious throne. 32Before him cwill be gathered dall the nations, and ehe will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates fthe sheep from the goats. 33And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. 34Then gthe King will say to hthose on his right, ‘Come, you iwho are blessed by my Father, jinherit kthe kingdom lprepared for you mfrom the foundation of the world. 35For nI was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you ogave me drink, pI was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 qI was naked and you clothed me, rI was sick and you svisited me, tI was in prison and you came to me.’ 37Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40And uthe King will answer them, vTruly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these wmy brothers
Or  brothers and sisters
you did it to me.’


41Then he will say to those on his left, yDepart from me, you zcursed, into aathe eternal fire prepared for abthe devil and his angels. 42For acI was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’ 44Then they also will answer, 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?’ 45Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, adyou did not do it to me.’ 46And these will go away aeinto eternal punishment, but the righteous afinto ageternal life.”
