Matthew 251 Then will be compared the kingdom of the heavens ten virgins, who having taken the lamps of them, went out to a meeting of the bridegroom. 2 Five and were of them prudent, and five foolish. 3 Who foolish, having taken the lamps of them, not took with themselves oil. 4 The but prudent took oil in the vessels of them with the lamps of them. 5 Delaying and the bridegroom, nodded all, and did sleep. 6 Of middle and night a cry was raised; Lo, the bridegroom comes; go out to a meeting of him. 7 Then arose all the virgins those, and put in order the lamps of them. 8 The but foolish to the prudent said: Give to us out of the oil of you, because the lamps of us are extinguished. 9 Answered but the prudent, saying: Lest not it might suffice to us and to you; go you rather to the selling, and buy to yourselves. 10 Going away and of them to buy, came the bridegroom; and the prepared ones entered with him into the nuptial-feasts; and was closed the door. 11 Afterwards and came also the remaining virgins, saying: O lord, O lord, open to us. 12 The but answering said: Indeed I say to you, not know you. 13 Watch you therefore, because not you know the day, nor the hour. 14 Like for a man going abroad called the own slaves, and delivered to them the goods of him. 15 and to him indeed he gave five talents, to him and two, to him and one; to each according to the own power; and went abroad immediately. 16 Going and he the five talents having received, traded with them, and made other five talents. 17 Likewise also he the two, gained also he other two. 18 He but the one having received having retired digged in the earth, and hid the silver of the lord of him. 19 After but time much comes the lord of the slaves those, and adjusts with them an account. 20 And coming he the five talents having received, brought other five talents, saying: O lord, five talents to me thou delivered; see, other five talents I gained upon them. 21 Said to him the lord of him: Well, O slave good and faithful; over a few (things) thou wast faithful, over many thee I will place; enter into the joy of the lord of thee. 22 Coming and also he the two talents having received, said: O lord, two talents to me thou deliveredst; lo, other two talents I gained upon them; 23 Said to him the lord of him: Well, O slave good and faithful; over a few (things) thou wast faithful, over many thee I will place; enter into the joy of the lord of thee. 24 Coming and also he the one talent having taken, said: O lord, I knew thee, that hard thou art a man, reaping where not thou sowed, and gathering whence not thou scatteredst; 25 and being afraid, going away I hid the talent of thee in the earth; lo, thou hast the thine. 26 Answering and the lord of him said to him: O wicked slave and slothful, didst thou know, that I reap where not I sowed, and gather whence not I scattered? 27 It behooved then thee cast the silver of me to the bankers; and coming I might have received the mine with interest. 28 Take you therefore from him the talent, and give to him having the ten talents. 29 To the for having all shall be given, and he shall abound; from but the not having, even what he has, shall be taken away from him. 30 And the useless slave cast you into the darkness the outer; there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth. 31 When and may come the son of the man in the glory of him, and all the messengers with him, then shall be sit on a throne of glory of him, 32 and will be gathered in presence of him all the nations; and he will separate them from each other, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and and he will place the indeed sheep by right of him, the and goats by left. 34 Then will say the king to the by right of him: Come the having been blessed of the Father of me, inherit the having been prepared to you kingdom from a foundation of world. 35 I hungered for, and you gave to me to eat; I thirsted, and you gave drink to me; a stranger I was, and you entertained me; 36 naked, and you clothed me; I was sick, and you visited me; in prison I was, and you came to me. 37 Then shall answer to him the just one, saying: O lord, when thee we saw hungering, and nourished? or thirsting, and we gave drink? 38 When and thee we saw a stranger, and we entertained? or naked, and we clothed? 39 When and thee we saw sick, or in prison, and we came to thee? 40 And answering the king will say to them: Indeed I say to you, in whatever you did, to one of these of the brothers of me of the least, to me you did. 41 Then he will say also to the of left: Go from me the having been cursed into the fire the everlasting, that having been prepared to the accuser and to the messengers of him. 42 I hungered for, and not you gave to me to eat; I thirsted, and not you gave drink to me; 43 a stranger I was, and not you entertained me; naked, and not you clothed me; sick, and in prison, and not you visited me. 44 Then will answer and they, saying: O lord, when thee we saw hungering, or thirsting, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and not we served thee? 45 Then he will answer them, saying: Indeed I say to you, in as much not you did to one of these of the least, neither to me you did. 46 And shall go away these into a cutting-off age-lasting; the and just ones into life age-lasting.
