THEN ashall bthe kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten cvirgins, which took their lamps, and went forth dto meet the bridegroom.
But he answered and said, *Verily I say unto you, rI know you not.
And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two.
His lord said unto him, zWell done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, aI will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
His lord said unto him, cWell done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not *strawed:
¶lWhen the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the mholy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
rThen shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit sthe kingdom prepared for you tfrom the foundation of the world:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye vvisited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee *an hungred, and fed thee ? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee ?
Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, xDepart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and yhis angels:
I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee *an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
