1 'Then the kingdom of Heaven will be like this: Ten wedding attendants took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.
Luke 12:35-36  Rev 19:7  Matt 22:2  Rev 21:2  Matt 13:24  Phil 2:15-16  John 3:29 

2 Five of them were foolish and five were sensible:
Jer 24:2  Matt 7:24-27  1Cor 10:1-5  1John 2:19  Jude 1:5  Matt 13:19-23  Matt 13:38-43 

3 the foolish ones, though they took their lamps, took no oil with them,
2Tim 3:5  Isa 48:1-2  Isa 58:2  Rev 3:15-16  Ezek 33:3  Heb 12:15  Matt 23:25-26 

4 whereas the sensible ones took flasks of oil as well as their lamps.
1John 2:20  1John 2:27  John 3:34  Rom 8:9  Zech 4:2-3  Gal 5:22-23  John 1:15-16 

5 The bridegroom was late, and they all grew drowsy and fell asleep.
Matt 24:48  Matt 25:19  1Pet 5:8  1Thess 5:6-8  2Pet 3:4-9  Eph 5:14  Hab 2:3 

6 But at midnight there was a cry, "Look! The bridegroom! Go out and meet him."
Mal 3:1-2  1Thess 4:16  1Thess 5:1-3  2Pet 3:10  2Thess 1:7-10  Amos 4:12  Isa 25:9 

7 Then all those wedding attendants woke up and trimmed their lamps,
Luke 12:35  Rev 3:19-20  2Pet 3:14  Rev 2:4-5  Rev 3:2 

8 and the foolish ones said to the sensible ones, "Give us some of your oil: our lamps are going out."
Luke 12:35  Heb 4:1  Prov 4:18-19  Acts 8:24  Job 8:13-14  Job 18:5  Job 21:17 

9 But they replied, "There may not be enough for us and for you; you had better go to those who sell it and buy some for yourselves."
Ps 49:7-9  Rev 3:17-18  Acts 8:22  Ezek 14:14-16  Ezek 14:20  Isa 55:1-3  Isa 55:6-7 

10 They had gone off to buy it when the bridegroom arrived. Those who were ready went in with him to the wedding hall and the door was closed.
Luke 13:25  Rev 22:11-12  Rev 22:20  1Pet 1:13  2Tim 4:8  Amos 8:12-13  Col 1:12 

11 The other attendants arrived later. "Lord, Lord," they said, "open the door for us."
Matt 7:21-23  Heb 12:16-17 

12 But he replied, "In truth I tell you, I do not know you."
2Tim 2:19  Luke 13:26-30  1Cor 8:3  Gal 4:9  John 9:31  John 10:27  Ps 1:6 

13 So stay awake, because you do not know either the day or the hour.
1Thess 5:6  1Cor 16:13  1Pet 5:8  Mark 13:33-37  Matt 24:42-44  Acts 20:31  1Pet 4:7 

14 'It is like a man about to go abroad who summoned his servants and entrusted his property to them.
Mark 13:34  1Cor 12:7-29  1Pet 4:9-11  Luke 19:12-27  1Cor 12:4  Eph 4:11  Luke 16:1-12 

15 To one he gave five talents, to another two, to a third one, each in proportion to his ability. Then he set out on his journey.
Matt 18:24  Luke 12:48  Luke 19:13-14 

16 The man who had received the five talents promptly went and traded with them and made five more.
1Chr 13:1-3  1Chr 22:1-19  1Chr 28:2-17  1Cor 9:16-23  1Cor 15:10  1Tim 6:17-18  2Chr 1:9-10 

17 The man who had received two made two more in the same way.
Prov 3:9-10  1Kgs 18:3-4  1Pet 4:10  1Tim 5:10  2Cor 8:12  2Cor 9:11-14  2Kgs 4:8-10 

18 But the man who had received one went off and dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.
2Pet 1:8  Hag 1:2-4  Heb 6:12  Luke 19:20  Mal 1:10  Prov 18:9  Prov 26:13-16 

19 Now a long time afterwards, the master of those servants came back and went through his accounts with them.
Matt 25:5  1Cor 3:12-15  2Cor 5:10  Jas 3:1  Luke 16:1-2  Luke 16:19-31  Matt 18:23-24 

20 The man who had received the five talents came forward bringing five more. "Sir," he said, "you entrusted me with five talents; here are five more that I have made."
1Cor 15:10  2Tim 4:1-8  Acts 20:24  Col 1:29  Jas 2:18  Luke 19:16-17 

21 His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy servant; you have shown you are trustworthy in small things; I will trust you with greater; come and join in your master's happiness."
Matt 25:23  Luke 16:10  John 12:26  2Tim 2:12  John 14:3  Rev 3:21  1Pet 1:7-8 

22 Next the man with the two talents came forward. "Sir," he said, "you entrusted me with two talents; here are two more that I have made."
2Cor 8:1-3  2Cor 8:7-8  2Cor 8:12  Luke 19:18-19  Rom 12:6-8 

23 His master said to him, "Well done, good and trustworthy servant; you have shown you are trustworthy in small things; I will trust you with greater; come and join in your master's happiness."
Matt 25:21  Mark 14:8-9  Mark 12:41-44 

24 Last came forward the man who had the single talent. "Sir," said he, "I had heard you were a hard man, reaping where you had not sown and gathering where you had not scattered;
Luke 19:20-22  Ezek 18:25-29  Isa 58:3  Jer 2:31  Jer 44:16-18  Job 21:14-15  Luke 6:46 

25 so I was afraid, and I went off and hid your talent in the ground. Here it is; it was yours, you have it back."
Rom 8:15  2Sam 6:9-10  2Tim 1:6-7  Isa 57:11  Rev 21:8  Prov 26:13 

26 But his master answered him, "You wicked and lazy servant! So you knew that I reap where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered?
Matt 18:32  Job 15:5-6 

27 Well then, you should have deposited my money with the bankers, and on my return I would have got my money back with interest.
Deut 23:19-20  Jude 1:15  Luke 19:22-23  Rom 3:19 

28 So now, take the talent from him and give it to the man who has the ten talents.
Luke 19:24  Luke 10:42 

29 For to everyone who has will be given more, and he will have more than enough; but anyone who has not, will be deprived even of what he has.
Matt 13:12  Luke 8:18  Mark 4:25  John 15:2  Luke 19:25-26  Hos 2:9  John 11:48 

30 As for this good-for-nothing servant, throw him into the darkness outside, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth."
Matt 8:12  Matt 22:13  Matt 13:50  Heb 6:7-8  Luke 13:28  Rev 3:15-16  Jer 15:1-2 

31 'When the Son of man comes in his glory, escorted by all the angels, then he will take his seat on his throne of glory.
Jude 1:14  Mark 8:38  2Thess 1:7-8  Matt 16:27  Matt 19:28  1Thess 4:16  Zech 14:5 

32 All nations will be assembled before him and he will separate people one from another as the shepherd separates sheep from goats.
Matt 13:49  Mal 3:18  2Cor 5:10  Ezek 34:17-22  Ps 96:13  Ps 98:9  John 10:14 

33 He will place the sheep on his right hand and the goats on his left.
Ps 45:9  Ps 100:3  Acts 2:34-35  Eph 1:20  Gen 48:13-14  Gen 48:17-19  Heb 1:3 

34 Then the King will say to those on his right hand, "Come, you whom my Father has blessed, take as your heritage the kingdom prepared for you since the foundation of the world.
Rev 13:8  Jas 2:5  Rev 21:7  1Pet 1:19-20  Matt 20:23  1Pet 1:3-5  Rev 17:8 

35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you made me welcome,
Ezek 18:7  1John 3:16-19  Ezek 18:16  Deut 15:7-11  Heb 13:1-3  Heb 13:16  Jas 1:27 

36 lacking clothes and you clothed me, sick and you visited me, in prison and you came to see me."
Jas 1:27  Heb 13:3  Jas 5:14-15  Heb 10:34  2Tim 1:16-18  Acts 20:35  Acts 28:8-9 

37 Then the upright will say to him in reply, "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?
1Pet 5:5-6  1Chr 29:14  1Cor 15:10  Isa 64:6  Matt 6:3  Prov 15:33 

38 When did we see you a stranger and make you welcome, lacking clothes and clothe you?

39 When did we find you sick or in prison and go to see you?"

40 And the King will answer, "In truth I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me."
Prov 19:17  Matt 10:42  Prov 14:31  Mark 9:41  1Pet 1:22  Gal 5:6  1John 3:14-19 

41 Then he will say to those on his left hand, "Go away from me, with your curse upon you, to the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
Jude 1:6-7  Matt 13:40  2Pet 2:4  2Thess 1:9  Matt 3:12  Matt 7:23  Matt 13:42 

42 For I was hungry and you never gave me food, I was thirsty and you never gave me anything to drink,
1Cor 16:22  1John 3:14-17  2Thess 1:8  Amos 6:6  Jas 2:15-24  John 5:23  John 8:42-44 

43 I was a stranger and you never made me welcome, lacking clothes and you never clothed me, sick and in prison and you never visited me."

44 Then it will be their turn to ask, "Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty, a stranger or lacking clothes, sick or in prison, and did not come to your help?"
1Sam 15:13-15  1Sam 15:20-21  Jer 2:23  Jer 2:35  Luke 10:29  Mal 1:6  Mal 2:17 

45 Then he will answer, "In truth I tell you, in so far as you neglected to do this to one of the least of these, you neglected to do it to me."
Matt 25:40  Acts 9:5  Ps 105:15  Prov 14:31  Prov 17:5  Prov 21:13  1John 3:12-20 

46 And they will go away to eternal punishment, and the upright to eternal life.'
