Then shall the kingdom of Heaven, He saith, be likened
unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth
to meet the Bridegroom. But five of them were wise,
and the other five foolish, which took not, He saith, oil.
Then, while the Bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered
and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made,
Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him.
And the five arose, and being in perplexity, said to the
wise, Give us of your oil. But they consented not, saying,
Not so, lest there be not enough for us and you; go to
them that sell, and buy.
And while they were gone for this, the Bridegroom came,
and those went in; but these came afterwards, saying,
Lord, Lord, open to us. But He answered and said, Verily
I say unto you, I know you not.
Watch therefore, for ye
know not the day, nor the hour.
Then He spake again another parable. A man tra-
velling into a far country, called his own servants, and
delivered unto them his goods; to one five talents, to
another two, to another one, to every man according to
his several ability, and took his journey. Then, when
the two had brought him the double, he that had been
entrusted with the one talent brought it alone, and being
blamed saith, I knew that thou art a hard man, reaping
where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast
not strawed; and I was afraid, and hid thy talent; lo!
there thou hast that is thine. His Lord answered and
said, Thou wicked servant, thou knewest that I reap
where I have not sown, and gather where I have not
strawed thou oughtest therefore to have put my money
to the exchangers, and then at my coming I might have
received mine own with usury. Take therefore the
talent from him, and give it to him that hath ten talents.
For to him that hath shall be given, and he shall have
more abundantly; 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 shall be
weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Matt. xxv. 31—41.
When the Son of Man shall come in the glory of His Father,
and all the holy Angels with Him, then shall He sit, saith
He, upon the throne of His glory, and He shall divide the
sheep from the kids; and the one He will accept, because
they fed Him, when an hungred, and gave Him drink when
thirsty, and took Him in when a stranger, and clothed Him
when naked, and visited Him when sick, and came to see
Him when in prison: and He will give the kingdom to
them. But the others, accusing them for the opposite
things, He will send into the eternal fire, prepared for the
devil and his angels.
Matt. xxvii. 45-48.
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the earth
until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried
with a loud voice, and said, Eli, Eli, lima sabachthani?
that is to say, My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken
Me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that,
said, This Man calleth for Elias. And straightway one of
them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and
put it on a reed, and gave Him to drink.
