Matthew 25:31-46 Darby’s Translation

The Judgment of the Nations

31  But when the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit down upon his throne of glory, 32  and all the nations shall be gathered before him; and he shall separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33  and he will set the sheep on his right hand, and the goats on [his] left. 34  Then shall the King say to those on his right hand, Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from [the] world's foundation: 35  for I hungered, and ye gave me to eat; I thirsted, and ye gave me to drink; I was a stranger, and ye took me in; 36  naked, and ye clothed me; I was ill, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came to me. 37  Then shall the righteous answer him saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungering, and nourished thee; or thirsting, and gave thee to drink? 38  and when saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in; or naked, and clothed thee? 39  and when saw we thee ill, or in prison, and came to thee? 40  And the King answering shall say to them, Verily, I say to you, Inasmuch as ye have done it to one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it to me. 41  Then shall he say also to those on the left, Go from me, cursed, into eternal fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: 42  for I hungered, and ye gave me not to eat; I thirsted, and ye gave me not to drink; 43  I was a stranger, and ye took me not in; naked, and ye did not clothe me; ill, and in prison, and ye did not visit me. 44  Then shall they also answer saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungering, or thirsting, or a stranger, or naked, or ill, or in prison, and have not ministered to thee? 45  Then shall he answer them saying, Verily I say to you, Inasmuch as ye have not done it to one of these least, neither have ye done it to me. 46  And these shall go away into eternal punishment, and the righteous into life eternal.
