MATTHEW XXV. 15 and delivered unto them his goods; 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 16 journey. Then he that had received the five talents went and 17 traded with the same, and made them other five talents. And

likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 18 But he that had received one, went and digged in the earth 19 and hid his lord's money. After a long time the lord of 20 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 unto me five

talents; behold, I have gained besides them five talents more. 21 His Lord said 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 2 of thy lord. He also that had received two talents came

and said; Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents ; be23 hold, I have gained two other talents besides them. His lord

said unto him ; Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee raler

over many things ; enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 24 Then he which had 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 25 not strawed; and I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent 26 in the earth; lo, there thou hast that is thine. His lord

answered and said unto him ; Thou wicked and slothful

servant, didst thou know that I reap where I sowed not, 27 and gather where I have not strawed ? Thou oughtest

therefore to have put my money to the exchangers; and

then at my coming I should have received mine own with 28 usury. Take therefore the talent from him, and give it 29 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 30 he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his 33 sheep from the goats; and he shall set the sheep on his right 34 hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say

unto them on his right hand; Come, ye blessed of my

Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foun35 dation of the world. For I was a hungered, and ye

gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink; 36 I was a stranger, and ye took me in; naked, and ye

clothed me; I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, 37 and ye came unto me.

Then shall the righteous answer him, saying ; Lord, when saw we thee a hungered, and fed 38 thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 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 40 thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them ; Ver

ily I say unto you, in as much as ye have done it unto one

of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand ; Depart

from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the 42 devil and his angels. For I was a hungered, and ye gave me 43 no meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink; I was a stranger, and

ye took me not in ; naked, and ye clothed me 44 not; sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then

shall they also answer, saying; Lord, when saw we thee a

hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in 45 prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he an

swer them, saying ; Verily I say unto you, in as much as ye

did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. 46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment; but

the righteous into life eternal.
