 New English Bible Matthew:25Novum Testamentum Graece (UBS.Ed.26)  

1 'When that day comes, the kingdom of Heaven will be like this. There were ten girls, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. The Parable of the Ten Maidens Mt.25.1-13 (Olivet) - Τότε ὁμοιωθήσεται ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν δέκα παρθένοις, αἱτινες λαβοῦσαι τὰς λαμπάδας ἑαυτῶν ἐξῆλθον εἰς ὑπάντησιν τοῦ νυμφίου.
2 Five of them were foolish, and five prudent;  πέντε δὲ ἐξ αὐτῶν ἦσαν μωραὶ καὶ πέντε φρόνιμοι.
3 when the foolish ones took their lamps, they took no oil with them,  αἱ γὰρ μωραὶ λαβοῦσαι τὰς λαμπάδας αὐτῶν οὐκ ἐλαβον μεθ' ἑαυτῶν ἐλαιον·
4 but the others took flasks of oil with their lamps.  αἱ δὲ φρόνιμοι ἐλαβον ἐλαιον ἐν τοῖς ἀγγείοις μετὰ τῶν λαμπάδων ἑαυτῶν.
5 As the bridegroom was late in coming they all dozed off to sleep.  χρονίζοντος δὲ τοῦ νυμφίου ἐνύσταξαν πᾶσαι καὶ ἐκάθευδον.
6 But at midnight a cry was heard: "Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him."  μέσης δὲ νυκτὸς κραυγὴ γέγονεν, Ἰδοὺ ὁ νυμφίος, ἐξέρχεσθε εἰς ἀπάντησιν αὐτοῦ.
7 With that the girls all got up and trimmed their lamps.  τότε ἠγέρθησαν πᾶσαι αἱ παρθένοι ἐκεῖναι καὶ ἐκόσμησαν τὰς λαμπάδας ἑαυτῶν.
8 The foolish said to the prudent, "Our lamps are going out; give us some of your oil."  αἱ δὲ μωραὶ ταῖς φρονίμοις εἶπαν, Δότε ἡμῖν ἐκ τοῦ ἐλαίου ὑμῶν, ὅτι αἱ λαμπάδες ἡμῶν σβέννυνται.
9 "No," they said; "there will never be enough for us both. You had better go to the shop and buy some for yourselves."  ἀπεκρίθησαν δὲ αἱ φρόνιμοι λέγουσαι, Μήποτε οὐ μὴ ἀρκέσῃ ἡμῖν καὶ ὑμῖν· πορεύεσθε μᾶλλον πρὸς τοὺς πωλοῦντας καὶ ἀγοράσατε ἑαυταῖς.
10 While they were away the bridegroom arrived; those who were ready went in with him to the wedding; and the door was shut.  ἀπερχομένων δὲ αὐτῶν ἀγοράσαι ἦλθεν ὁ νυμφίος, καὶ αἱ ἑτοιμοι εἰσῆλθον μετ' αὐτοῦ εἰς τοὺς γάμους, καὶ ἐκλείσθη ἡ θύρα.
11 And then the other five came back. "Sir, sir," they cried, "open the door for us."  ὑστερον δὲ ἐρχονται καὶ αἱ λοιπαὶ παρθένοι λέγουσαι, Κύριε κύριε, ἀνοιξον ἡμῖν.
12 But he answered, "'I declare, I do not know you."  ὁ δὲ ἀποκριθεὶς εἶπεν, Ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, οὐκ οἶδα ὑμᾶς.
13 Keep awake then; for you never know the day or the hour.
 Γρηγορεῖτε οὖν, ὅτι οὐκ οἰδατε τὴν ἡμέραν οὐδὲ τὴν ὡραν.
14 'It is like a man going abroad, who called his servants and put his capital in their hands; The Parable of the Talents Mt.25.14-30 (Olivet) - | Lk.19.11-27Ὥσπερ γὰρ ἄνθρωπος ἀποδημῶν ἐκάλεσεν τοὺς ἰδίους δούλους καὶ παρέδωκεν αὐτοῖς τὰ ὑπάρχοντα αὐτοῦ,
15 to one he gave five bags of gold, to another two, to another one, each according to his capacity. Then he left the country.  καὶ ᾧ μὲν ἐδωκεν πέντε τάλαντα, ᾧ δὲ δύο, ᾧ δὲ ἑν, ἑκάστῳ κατὰ τὴν ἰδίαν δύναμιν, καὶ ἀπεδήμησεν. εὐθέως
16 The man who had the five bags went at once and employed them in business, and made a profit of five bags,  πορευθεὶς ὁ τὰ πέντε τάλαντα λαβὼν ἠργάσατο ἐν αὐτοῖς καὶ ἐκέρδησεν ἀλλα πέντε·
17 and the man who had the two bags made two.  ὡσαύτως ὁ τὰ δύο ἐκέρδησεν ἀλλα δύο.
18 But the man who had been given one bag of gold went off and dug a hole in the ground, and hid his master's money.  ὁ δὲ τὸ ἓν λαβὼν ἀπελθὼν ὠρυξεν γῆν καὶ ἐκρυψεν τὸ ἀργύριον τοῦ κυρίου αὐτοῦ.
19 A long time afterwards their master returned, and proceeded to settle accounts with them.  μετὰ δὲ πολὺν χρόνον ἐρχεται ὁ κύριος τῶν δούλων ἐκείνων καὶ συναίρει λόγον μετ' αὐτῶν.
20 The man who had been given the five bags of gold came and produced the five he had made: "Master," he said, "you left five bags with me; look, I have made five more."  καὶ προσελθὼν ὁ τὰ πέντε τάλαντα λαβὼν προσήνεγκεν ἀλλα πέντε τάλαντα λέγων, Κύριε, πέντε τάλαντά μοι παρέδωκας· ἰδε ἀλλα πέντε τάλαντα ἐκέρδησα.
21 "Well done, my good and trusty servant!" said the master. "You have proved trustworthy in a small way; I will now put you in charge of something big. Come and share your master's delight."  ἐφη αὐτῷ ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ, Εὖ, δοῦλε ἀγαθὲ καὶ πιστέ, ἐπὶ ὀλίγα ἦς πιστός, ἐπὶ πολλῶν σε καταστήσω· εἰσελθε εἰς τὴν χαρὰν τοῦ κυρίου σου.
22 The man with the two bags then came and said, "Master, you left two bags with me; look, I have made two more."  προσελθὼν δὲ καὶ ὁ τὰ δύο τάλαντα εἶπεν, Κύριε, δύο τάλαντά μοι παρέδωκας· ἰδε ἀλλα δύο τάλαντα ἐκέρδησα.
23 "Well done, my good and trusty servant!" said the master. "You have proved trustworthy in a small way; I will now put you in charge of something big. Come and share your master's delight."  ἐφη αὐτῷ ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ, Εὖ, δοῦλε ἀγαθὲ καὶ πιστέ, ἐπὶ ὀλίγα ἦς πιστός, ἐπὶ πολλῶν σε καταστήσω· εἰσελθε εἰς τὴν χαρὰν τοῦ κυρίου σου.
24 Then the man who had been given one bag came and said, "Master, I knew you to be a hard man: you reap where you have not sown, you gather where you have not scattered;  προσελθὼν δὲ καὶ ὁ τὸ ἓν τάλαντον εἰληφὼς εἶπεν, Κύριε, ἐγνων σε ὅτι σκληρὸς εἶ ἄνθρωπος, θερίζων ὁπου οὐκ ἐσπειρας καὶ συνάγων ὁθεν οὐ διεσκόρπισας·
25 so I was afraid, and I went and hid your gold in the ground. Here it is - you have what belongs to you."  καὶ φοβηθεὶς ἀπελθὼν ἐκρυψα τὸ τάλαντόν σου ἐν τῇ γῇ· ἰδε ἐχεις τὸ σόν.
26 "You lazy rascal!" said the master. "You knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered?  ἀποκριθεὶς δὲ ὁ κύριος αὐτοῦ εἶπεν αὐτῷ, Πονηρὲ δοῦλε καὶ ὀκνηρέ, ᾐδεις ὅτι θερίζω ὁπου οὐκ ἐσπειρα καὶ συνάγω ὁθεν οὐ διεσκόρπισὰ;
27 Then you ought to have put my money on deposit, and on my return I should have got it back with interest.  ἐδει σε οὖν βαλεῖν τὰ ἀργύριά μου τοῖς τραπεζίταις, καὶ ἐλθὼν ἐγὼ ἐκομισάμην ἂν τὸ ἐμὸν σὺν τόκῳ.
28 Take the bag of gold from him, and give it to the one with the ten bags.  ἀρατε οὖν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ τὸ τάλαντον καὶ δότε τῷ ἐχοντι τὰ δέκα τάλαντα·
29 For the man who has will always be given more, till he has enough and to spare; and the man who has not will forfeit even what he has.  τῷ γὰρ ἐχοντι παντὶ δοθήσεται καὶ περισσευθήσεται· τοῦ δὲ μὴ ἐχοντος καὶ ὃ ἐχει ἀρθήσεται ἀπ' αὐτοῦ.
30 Fling the useless servant out into the dark, the place of wailing and grinding of teeth!"
 καὶ τὸν ἀχρεῖον δοῦλον ἐκβάλετε εἰς τὸ σκότος τὸ ἐξώτερον· ἐκεῖ ἐσται ὁ κλαυθμὸς καὶ ὁ βρυγμὸς τῶν ὀδόντων.
31 'When the Son of Man comes in his glory and all the angels with him, he will sit in state on his throne, The Judgment of the Nations Mt.25.31-46 (Olivet) - Ὅταν δὲ ἐλθῃ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἐν τῇ δόξῃ αὐτοῦ καὶ πάντες οἱ ἀγγελοι μετ' αὐτοῦ, τότε καθίσει ἐπὶ θρόνου δόξης αὐτοῦ·
32 with all the nations gathered before him. He will separate men into two groups, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,  καὶ συναχθήσονται ἐμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ πάντα τὰ ἐθνη, καὶ ἀφορίσει αὐτοὺς ἀπ' ἀλλήλων, ὡσπερ ὁ ποιμὴν ἀφορίζει τὰ πρόβατα ἀπὸ τῶν ἐρίφων,
33 and he will place the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left.  καὶ στήσει τὰ μὲν πρόβατα ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ τὰ δὲ ἐρίφια ἐξ εὐωνύμων.
34 Then the king will say to those on his right hand, "You have my Father's blessing; come, enter and possess the kingdom that has been ready for you since the world was made.  τότε ἐρεῖ ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῖς ἐκ δεξιῶν αὐτοῦ, Δεῦτε, οἱ εὐλογημένοι τοῦ πατρός μου, κληρονομήσατε τὴν ἡτοιμασμένην ὑμῖν βασιλείαν ἀπὸ καταβολῆς κόσμου·
35 For when I was hungry, you gave me food; when thirsty, you gave me drink; when I was a stranger you took me into your home,  ἐπείνασα γὰρ καὶ ἐδώκατέ μοι φαγεῖν, ἐδίψησα καὶ ἐποτίσατέ με, ξένος ἠμην καὶ συνηγάγετέ με,
36 when naked you clothed me; when I was ill you came to my help, when in prison you visited me."  γυμνὸς καὶ περιεβάλετέ με, ἠσθένησα καὶ ἐπεσκέψασθέ με, ἐν φυλακῇ ἠμην καὶ ἠλθατε πρός με.
37 Then the righteous will reply, "Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and fed you, or thirsty and gave you drink,  τότε ἀποκριθήσονται αὐτῷ οἱ δίκαιοι λέγοντες, Κύριε, πότε σε εἰδομεν πεινῶντα καὶ ἐθρέψαμεν, ἢ διψῶντα καὶ ἐποτίσαμεν;
38 a stranger and took you home, or naked and clothed you?  πότε δέ σε εἰδομεν ξένον καὶ συνηγάγομεν, ἢ γυμνὸν καὶ περιεβάλομεν;
39 When did we see you ill or in prison, and come to visit you?"  πότε δέ σε εἰδομεν ἀσθενοῦντα ἢ ἐν φυλακῇ καὶ ἠλθομεν πρός σὲ;
40 And the king will answer, "I tell you this: anything you did for one of my brothers here, however humble, you did for me."  καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ βασιλεὺς ἐρεῖ αὐτοῖς, Ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐφ' ὁσον ἐποιήσατε ἑνὶ τούτων τῶν ἀδελφῶν μου τῶν ἐλαχίστων, ἐμοὶ ἐποιήσατε.
41 Then he will say to those on his left, hand, "The curse is upon you; go from my sight to the eternal fire that is ready for the devil and his angels.  Τότε ἐρεῖ καὶ τοῖς ἐξ εὐωνύμων, Πορεύεσθε ἀπ' ἐμοῦ [οἱ] κατηραμένοι εἰς τὸ πῦρ τὸ αἰώνιον τὸ ἡτοιμασμένον τῷ διαβόλῳ καὶ τοῖς ἀγγέλοις αὐτοῦ·
42 For when I was hungry you gave me nothing to eat, when thirsty nothing to drink;  ἐπείνασα γὰρ καὶ οὐκ ἐδώκατέ μοι φαγεῖν, ἐδίψησα καὶ οὐκ ἐποτίσατέ με,
43 when I was a stranger you gave me no home, when naked you did not clothe me; when I was ill and in prison you did not come to my help."  ξένος ἠμην καὶ οὐ συνηγάγετέ με, γυμνὸς καὶ οὐ περιεβάλετέ με, ἀσθενὴς καὶ ἐν φυλακῇ καὶ οὐκ ἐπεσκέψασθέ με.
44 And they too will reply, "Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and did nothing for you?"  τότε ἀποκριθήσονται καὶ αὐτοὶ λέγοντες, Κύριε, πότε σε εἰδομεν πεινῶντα ἢ διψῶντα ἢ ξένον ἢ γυμνὸν ἢ ἀσθενῆ ἢ ἐν φυλακῇ καὶ οὐ διηκονήσαμέν σοὶ;
45 And he will answer, "I tell you this: anything you did not do for one of these, however humble, you did not do for me."  τότε ἀποκριθήσεται αὐτοῖς λέγων, Ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν, ἐφ' ὁσον οὐκ ἐποιήσατε ἑνὶ τούτων τῶν ἐλαχίστων, οὐδὲ ἐμοὶ ἐποιήσατε.
46 And they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous will enter eternal life.'
 καὶ ἀπελεύσονται οὗτοι εἰς κόλασιν αἰώνιον, οἱ δὲ δίκαιοι εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον.
