Matthew 25:31-46

31 “But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered in his presence, and he will separate the people today as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will spot the sheep at his ideal hand and the goats at his left.

34 “Then the King will say to these on his ideal, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the Kingdom ready for you from the creation of the planet. 35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your residence. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothes. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’

37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you some thing to drink? 38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothes? 39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and go to you?’

40 “And the King will say, ‘I inform you the truth, when you did it to a single of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you had been undertaking it to me!’

41 “Then the King will turn to these on the left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire ready for the devil and his demons. 42 For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink. 43 I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your residence. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothes. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t go to me.’

44 “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not enable you?’

45 “And he will answer, ‘I inform you the truth, when you refused to enable the least of these my brothers and sisters, you had been refusing to enable me.’

46 “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.”
