Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took lamps, and went forth the bridegroom.  And five of them wise, and five were foolish.  that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:  But the wise took oil in vessels with lamps.  While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom go ye out to meet him.  Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed lamps.  And the foolish said unto the wise, Give of oil; for lamps are gone out.  But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest not enough and but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.  And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.  Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, open  But he answered and said, Verily I say I know not.  Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.  For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them  And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.  he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and them other five talents.  likewise he that had received two, gained other two.  But he that had received one went and digged the earth, and his lord's money.  After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.  And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst five talents: I have gained five talents more.  His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: faithful over a few things, ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy lord.  He also two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst two talents: I have gained two other talents  His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; faithful over a few things, ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy lord.  Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew that an hard man, reaping where not sown, and gathering where not strawed:  And I was afraid, and went and hid talent in the earth: there thou hast that is thine.  His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where not strawed:  oughtest therefore to have put money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.  Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.  For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.  And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there weeping and gnashing of teeth.  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed Father, inherit the kingdom prepared from the foundation of the world:  For I was an hungred, and ye gave meat: I was thirsty, and drink: a stranger, and in:  Naked, and ye clothed I was sick, and ye visited in prison, and ye came unto  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?  When a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed  Or when or in prison, and came unto  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least brethren, ye have done  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:  For I was an hungred, and ye gave no meat: I was thirsty, and no drink:  a stranger, and not in: naked, and ye clothed not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited not.  Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and not minister  Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least ye did it not  And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
