25:1 icapshen shall the kingdome of heauen be likened vnto ten Uirgins, which tooke their lamps, & went forth to meet the bridegrome.  
25:2 And fiue of them were wise, and fiue were foolish.  
25:3 They that were foolish tooke their lampes, and tooke no oyle with them:  
25:4 But the wise tooke oyle in their vessels with their lampes.  
25:5 While the bridegrome taried, they all slumbred and slept.  
25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegrome commeth, goe ye out to meet him.  
25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lampes.  
25:8 And the foolish said vnto the wise, Giue vs of your oyle, for our lampes are gone out. Margin Note
25:9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so, lest there be not ynough for vs and you, but goe ye rather to them that sell, and buy for your selues.  
25:10 And while they went to buy, the bridegrome came, and they that were ready, went in with him to the marriage, and the doore was shut.  
25:11 Afterward came also the other virgines, saying, Lord, Lord, open to vs.  
25:12 But he answered, and said, Uerely I say vnto you, I know you not.  
25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day, nor the houre, wherein the Sonne of man commeth.  
25:14 For the kingdome of heauen is as a man trauailing into a farre countrey, who called his owne seruants, and deliuered vnto them his goods:  
25:15 And vnto one he gaue fiue talents, to another two, and to another one, to euery man according to his seuerall ability, & straightway tooke his iourney. Margin Note
25:16 Then hee that had receiued the fiue talents, went and traded with the same, and made them other fiue talents.  
25:17 And likewise he that had receiued two, he also gained other two.  
25:18 But hee that had receiued one, went and digged in the earth, and hid his lordes money.  
25:19 After a long time, the lord of those seruants commeth, and reckoneth with them.  
25:20 And so hee that had receiued fiue talents, came and brought other fiue talents, saying, Lord, thou deliueredst vnto me fiue talents, behold, I haue gained besides them, fiue talents moe.  
25:21 His lord said vnto him, Well done, thou good and faithfull seruant, thou hast been faithfull ouer a few things, I wil make thee ruler ouer many things: enter thou into the ioy of thy lord.  
25:22 He also that had receiued two talents, came and said, Lord, thou deliueredst vnto me two talents: behold, I haue gained two other talents besides them.  
25:23 His lord said vnto him, Well done, good and faithfull seruant, thou hast beene faithfull ouer a few things, I wil make thee ruler ouer many things: enter thou into the ioy of thy lord.  
25:24 Then he which had receiued the one talent, came & said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sowen, & gathering where thou hast not strawed:  
25:25 And I was afraid, and went and hidde thy talent in the earth: loe, there thou hast that is thine.  
25:26 His lord answered, and said vnto him, Thou wicked and slouthfull seruant, thou knewest that I reape where I sowed not, and gather where I haue not strawed:  
25:27 Thou oughtest therefore to haue put my money to the exchangers, and then at my comming I should haue receiued mine owne with vsurie.  
25:28 Take therefore the talent from him, and giue it vnto him which hath ten talents.  
25:29 For vnto euery one that hath shall be giuen, and he shall haue abundance: but from him that hath not, shal be taken away, euen that which he hath.  
25:30 And cast yee the vnprofitable seruant into outer darkenesse, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.  
25:31 When the Sonne of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy Angels with him, then shall hee sit vpon the throne of his glory:  
25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations, and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepheard diuideth his sheepe from the goats.  
25:33 And he shall set the sheepe on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  
25:34 Then shall the King say vnto them on his right hand, Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdome prepared for you from the foundation of the world.  
25:35 For I was an hungred, and yee gaue me meate: I was thirstie, and ye gaue me drinke: I was a stranger, and ye tooke me in:  
25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sicke, and yee visited me: I was in prison, and ye came vnto me.  
25:37 Then shal the righteous answere him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fedde thee? or thirstie, and gaue thee drinke?  
25:38 When saw wee thee a stranger, and tooke thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?  
25:39 Or when saw we thee sicke, or in prison, and came vnto thee?  
25:40 And the King shall answere, and say vnto them, Uerely I say vnto you, in as much as ye haue done it vnto one of the least of these my brethren, ye haue done it vnto me.  
25:41 Then shall he say also vnto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into euerlasting fire, prepared for the deuill and his angels.  
25:42 For I was an hungred, and yee gaue me no meat: I was thirstie, and ye gaue me no drinke:  
25:43 I was a stranger, and yee tooke me not in: naked, and ye clothed mee not: sicke, and in prison, and yee visited me not.  
25:44 Then shall they also answere him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sicke, or in prison, and did not minister vnto thee?  
25:45 Then shall he answere them, saying, Uerely, I say vnto you, in as much as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.  
25:46 And these shall goe away into euerlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternall.
