7. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps

8. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of vour oil : for our lamps are gone out. - 9. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

10. 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.

15. 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.

16. Then he that had received the five talents, went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents.

18. But he that had received one, went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money

19. After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.

21. His lord saith unto him, Well done, thou 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.

22. He also that had received two talents came, and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents ; behold I have gained two other talents besides them.

23. His lord saith unto him, Well 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 this loril

24. Then he wlich liad received the one talent came, and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art a hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed :

25. And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine.

26. 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 :

27. Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

28. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents.

35. For I was an hungered, and ye gave Me meat : I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink : I was a stranger, and ye took Me in :

36. Naked, and ye clothed Me: I was sick, and ye visited Me: I was in prison, and ye came unto Me.

37. Then shall the righteous answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we Thee an hungered, and fed Thee ? or thirsty, and gave Thee drink?

38. When saw we Thee a stranger, and took Thee in ? or naked, and clothed Thee ?

39. Or when saw we Thee sick, or in prison, and came unto Thee ?

42. For I was an hungered, and ye gave Me no meat : I was thirsty, and ye gave Me no drink :

43. 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.

44. Then shall they also answer Him, saying, Lord, when saw we Thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto Thee ?

45. Then shall He answer them, saying, Verily, I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me.
