9. Parable of Ten Virgins (25:1-13)

1At that time the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3The foolish ones took their lamps, but didn’t take any oil with them. 4The wise ones took jars of oil along with their lamps. 5The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. 6But at midnight there a cry ranng out, ‘Look! The bridegroom is coming! Come out to meet him!’ 7Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps.[7] 8The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ 9But the wise ones answered, ‘What if there isn’t enough for us and and you? You need to go the oil merchants and buy your own.’ 10While they were on their way to buy oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins  who were ready went in to the marriage banquet with him, and the door was shut. 11Later, the other virgins arrived and said, ‘Lord, Lord, open the door for us.’ 12But he answered, ‘I’m telling you the truth, I don’t know you.’ 13So keep watch, because you don’t know the day or hour when the Son of Man is coming.

10. Parable of the Talents (25:14-30)

14Again, it is like a man going into another country who called his servants to him and entrusted his wealth to them. 15He gave five talents[15] to one servant, two to another, and one to yet another; each based on that servant’s ability. Then he went on his journey. 16The servant who had received the five talents went right away and made some wise business investments and earned another five talents. 17So did the one who had been given two talents; he also earned another two. 18But the servant who received the one talent went away, dug a hole in the ground, and buried his master’s money.

19After a long time the master of those servants came home and settled accounts with them. 20The man who had received the five talents came and brought the other five talents. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have earned another five.’

21His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things, so I will put you in charge of many things. Come share your master’s happiness.’

22The man who had received the two talents came and said, ‘Master, you entrusted me with me two talents. Look, I have earned another two talents besides them.’

23His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things, so I will put you in charge of many things. Come share your master’s happiness.’

24The man who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Master, I knew you that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have now sown and gathering where you have not planted. 25I was afraid, so I went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, I’m returning what belongs to you.’

26But his master said to him, ‘You wicked, lazy servant. You knew that I harvest where I didn’t sow and gather where I didn’t plant?! 27You should have at least deposited my money with the bankers so when I came back I would have at least gotten my money back with interest! 28So take the talent away from him and give it to the man who has the ten talents.[28] 29For whoever who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what does have will be taken away from him. 30Throw that worthless servant into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

31When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with him, He will sit on His glorious throne. 32All the nations[32] will be gathered before Him, and He will separate the people one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on His left. 34Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, and inherit the Kingdom that has been prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. 36I was naked and you gave me clothes. I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you visited me.’

37Then the righteous will ask Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you as a stranger and invite you in; or naked give you clothes? 39When did we see you sick, or in prison, and come to you?’

40The King will answer them, ‘I’m telling you the absolute truth, whatever you did to the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine [the Jewish people],[40] you did it to Me.’

41Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Get away from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels! 42For I was hungry and you didn’t give Me any food to eat; I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink. 43I was a stranger and you didn’t invite Me in; naked, and you didn’t give me any clothes; sick and in prison and you didn’t visit me.’

44Then they will also ask Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and didn’t help You?’

45Then He will answer them, ‘I’m telling you the absolute truth. Whatever you failed to do for one of the least of these [the Jewish people], you failed to do it to Me.’ 46Then these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.
