  1 G5119 Then G932 shall the kingdom G3772 of heaven G3666 be likened G1176 to ten G3933 virgins, G3748 which G2983 took G2985 their lamps, G1831 and went G1831 forth G529 to meet G3566 the bridegroom.
  2 G4002 And five G5429 of them were wise, G4002 and five G3474 were foolish.
  3 G3474 They that were foolish G2983 took G2985 their lamps, G2983 and took G3756 no G1637 oil with them:
  4 G5429 But the wise G2983 took G1637 oil G30 in their vessels G2985 with their lamps.
  5 G3566 While the bridegroom G5549 tarried, G3956 they all G3573 slumbered G2518 and slept.
  6 G3319 And at midnight G3571 G2906 there was a cry G1096 made, G2400 Behold, G3566 the bridegroom G2064 comes; G1831 go G529 you out to meet him.
  7 G5119 Then G3956 all G1565 those G3933 virgins G1453 arose, G2885 and trimmed G2985 their lamps.
  8 G3474 And the foolish G2036 said G5429 to the wise, G1325 Give G5216 us of your G1637 oil; G2985 for our lamps G4570 are gone out.
  9 G5429 But the wise G611 answered, G3004 saying, G3779 Not so; G3379 lest G714 there be not enough G4198 for us and you: but go G3123 you rather G4453 to them that sell, G59 and buy G1438 for yourselves.
  10 G565 And while they went G59 to buy, G3566 the bridegroom G2064 came; G2092 and they that were ready G1525 went G1062 in with him to the marriage: G2374 and the door G2808 was shut.
  11 G5305 Afterward G2064 came G2532 also G3062 the other G3933 virgins, G3004 saying, G2962 Lord, G2962 Lord, G455 open to us.
  12 G611 But he answered G2036 and said, G281 Truly G3004 I say G1492 to you, I know you not.
  13 G1127 Watch G3767 therefore, G1492 for you know G3383 neither G2250 the day G3761 nor G5610 the hour G1722 wherein G3739 G5207 the Son G444 of man G2064 comes.
  14 G932 For the kingdom G3772 of heaven G444 is as a man G589 traveling G589 into a far country, G2564 who called G2398 his own G1401 servants, G3860 and delivered G5224 to them his goods.
  15 G3739 And to one G3303 G1325 he gave G4002 five G5007 talents, G3739 to another G1417 two, G3739 and to another G1520 one; G1538 to every G2596 man according G2398 to his several G1411 ability; G2112 and straightway G589 took G589 his journey.
  16 G1161 Then G2983 he that had received G4002 the five G5007 talents G4198 went G2038 and traded G846 with the same, G4160 and made G243 them other G4002 five G5007 talents.
  17 G5615 And likewise G1417 he that had received two, G2532 he also G2770 gained G243 other G1417 two.
  18 G2983 But he that had received G1520 one G565 went G3736 and dig G1093 in the earth, G613 and hid G2962 his lord’s G694 money.
  19 G3326 After G4183 a long G5550 time G2962 the lord G1565 of those G1401 servants G2064 comes, G4868 and reckons G3056 with them.
  20 G2532 And so G2983 he that had received G4002 five G5007 talents G4334 came G4374 and brought G243 other G4002 five G5007 talents, G3004 saying, G2962 Lord, G3860 you delivered G4002 to me five G5007 talents: G2396 behold, G2770 I have gained G1909 beside G4002 them five G5007 talents G243 more.
  21 G2962 His lord G5346 said G2095 to him, Well G18 done, you good G4103 and faithful G1401 servant: G2258 you have been G4103 faithful G1909 over G3641 a few G2525 things, I will make G2525 you ruler G1909 over G4183 many G1525 things: enter G1519 you into G5479 the joy G2962 of your lord.
  22 G2532 He also G2983 that had received G1417 two G5007 talents G4334 came G2036 and said, G2962 Lord, G3860 you delivered G1417 to me two G5007 talents: G2396 behold, G2770 I have gained G1417 two G243 other G5007 talents G1909 beside them.
  23 G2962 His lord G5346 said G2095 to him, Well G18 done, good G4103 and faithful G1401 servant; G2258 you have been G4103 faithful G1909 over G3641 a few G2525 things, I will make G2525 you ruler G1909 over G4183 many G1525 things: enter G1519 you into G5479 the joy G2962 of your lord.
  24 G1161 Then G2983 he which had received G1520 the one G5007 talent G4334 came G2036 and said, G2962 Lord, G1097 I knew G1488 you that you are G4642 an hard G444 man, G2325 reaping G3699 where G4687 you have not sown, G4863 and gathering G3606 where G1287 you have not strewed:
  25 G5399 And I was afraid, G565 and went G2928 and hid G5007 your talent G1093 in the earth: G2396 see, G2192 there you have G4674 that is yours.
  26 G2962 His lord G611 answered G2036 and said G4190 to him, You wicked G3636 and slothful G1401 servant, G1492 you knew G2325 that I reap G3699 where G4687 I sowed G4863 not, and gather G3606 where G1287 I have not strewed:
  27 G1163 You ought G3767 therefore G906 to have put G694 my money G5133 to the exchangers, G2064 and then at my coming G2865 I should have received G1699 my G5110 own with usury.
  28 G142 Take G3767 therefore G5007 the talent G1325 from him, and give G2192 it to him which has G1176 ten G5007 talents.
  29 G3956 For to every G2192 one that has G1325 shall be given, G4052 and he shall have abundance: G2192 but from him that has G142 not shall be taken G142 away G2532 even G2192 that which he has.
  30 G1544 And cast G888 you the unprofitable G1401 servant G1519 into G1857 outer G4655 darkness: G1563 there G2805 shall be weeping G1030 and gnashing G3599 of teeth.
  31 G3752 When G5207 the Son G444 of man G2064 shall come G1391 in his glory, G3956 and all G40 the holy G32 angels G5119 with him, then G2523 shall he sit G2362 on the throne G1391 of his glory:
  32 G1715 And before G4863 him shall be gathered G3956 all G1484 nations: G873 and he shall separate G240 them one G240 from another, G4166 as a shepherd G873 divides G4263 his sheep G2056 from the goats:
  33 G2476 And he shall set G4263 the sheep G1537 on G1188 his right G2055 hand, but the goats G1537 on G2176 the left.
  34 G5119 Then G935 shall the King G2046 say G1537 to them on G1188 his right G1205 hand, Come, G2127 you blessed G3962 of my Father, G2816 inherit G932 the kingdom G2090 prepared G2602 for you from the foundation G2889 of the world:
  35 G3983 For I was an hungered, G1325 and you gave G5315 me meat: G1372 I was thirsty, G4222 and you gave G4222 me drink: G3581 I was a stranger, G4863 and you took me in:
  36 G1131 Naked, G4016 and you clothed G770 me: I was sick, G1980 and you visited G5438 me: I was in prison, G2064 and you came to me.
  37 G5119 Then G1342 shall the righteous G611 answer G3004 him, saying, G2962 Lord, G4218 when G1492 saw G3983 we you an hungered, G5142 and fed G2228 you? or G1372 thirsty, G4222 and gave G4222 you drink?
  38 G4218 When G1492 saw G3581 we you a stranger, G4863 and took G2228 you in? or G1131 naked, G4016 and clothed you?
  39 G2228 Or G4218 when G1492 saw G772 we you sick, G2228 or G5438 in prison, G2064 and came to you?
  40 G935 And the King G611 shall answer G2046 and say G281 to them, Truly G3004 I say G1909 to you, Inasmuch G3745 G4160 as you have done G1520 it to one G1646 of the least G5130 of these G80 my brothers, G4160 you have done it to me.
  41 G5119 Then G2046 shall he say G2532 also G1537 to them on G2176 the left G4198 hand, Depart G2672 from me, you cursed, G1519 into G166 everlasting G4442 fire, G2090 prepared G1228 for the devil G32 and his angels:
  42 G3983 For I was an hungered, G1325 and you gave G3756 me no G5315 meat: G1372 I was thirsty, G4222 and you gave G3756 me no G4222 drink:
  43 G3581 I was a stranger, G4863 and you took G1131 me not in: naked, G4016 and you clothed G772 me not: sick, G5438 and in prison, G1980 and you visited me not.
  44 G5119 Then G2532 shall they also G611 answer G3004 him, saying, G2962 Lord, G4218 when G1492 saw G3983 we you an hungered, G2228 or G1372 thirsty, G2228 or G3581 a stranger, G2228 or G1131 naked, G2228 or G772 sick, G2228 or G5438 in prison, G1247 and did not minister to you?
  45 G5119 Then G611 shall he answer G3004 them, saying, G281 Truly G3004 I say G1909 to you, Inasmuch G3745 G4160 as you did G1520 it not to one G1646 of the least G5130 of these, G4160 you did it not to me.
  46 G3778 And these G565 shall go G565 away G1519 into G166 everlasting G2851 punishment: G1342 but the righteous G1519 into G2222 life G166 eternal.
