Matthew 23

1
Then said Jesus to the crowds and to his disciples,
2
"The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat;
3
so practice and observe whatever they tell you, but not what they do; for they preach, but do not practice.
4
They bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with their finger.
5
They do all their deeds to be seen by men; for they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long,
6
and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues,
7
and salutations in the market places, and being called rabbi by men.
8
But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brethren.
9
And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven.
10
Neither be called masters, for you have one master, the Christ.
11
He who is greatest among you shall be your servant;
12
whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
13
"But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you shut the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither enter yourselves, nor allow those who would enter to go in.
14
15
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you traverse sea and land to make a single proselyte, and when he becomes a proselyte, you make him twice as much a child of hell as yourselves.
16
"Woe to you, blind guides, who say, 'If any one swears by the temple, it is nothing; but if any one swears by the gold of the temple, he is bound by his oath.'
17
You blind fools! For which is greater, the gold or the temple that has made the gold sacred?
18
And you say, 'If any one swears by the altar, it is nothing; but if any one swears by the gift that is on the altar, he is bound by his oath.'
19
You blind men! For which is greater, the gift or the altar that makes the gift sacred?
20
So he who swears by the altar, swears by it and by everything on it;
21
and he who swears by the temple, swears by it and by him who dwells in it;
22
and he who swears by heaven, swears by the throne of God and by him who sits upon it.
23
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law, justice and mercy and faith; these you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.
24
You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel!
25
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you cleanse the outside of the cup and of the plate, but inside they are full of extortion and rapacity.
26
You blind Pharisee! first cleanse the inside of the cup and of the plate, that the outside also may be clean.
27
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you are like whitewashed tombs, which outwardly appear beautiful, but within they are full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness.
28
So you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
29
"Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous,
30
saying, 'If we had lived in the days of our fathers, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.'
31
Thus you witness against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.
32
Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers.
33
You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell?
34
Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from town to town,
35
that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of innocent Abel to the blood of Zechari'ah the son of Barachi'ah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar.
36
Truly, I say to you, all this will come upon this generation.
37
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not!
38
Behold, your house is forsaken and desolate.
39
For I tell you, you will not see me again, until you say, 'Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.'"


Matthew 24

1
Jesus left the temple and was going away, when his disciples came to point out to him the buildings of the temple.
2
But he answered them, "You see all these, do you not? Truly, I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another, that will not be thrown down."
3
As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?"
4
And Jesus answered them, "Take heed that no one leads you astray.
5
For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and they will lead many astray.
6
And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet.
7
For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places:
8
all this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs.
9
"Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake.
10
And then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another.
11
And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.
12
And because wickedness is multiplied, most men's love will grow cold.
13
But he who endures to the end will be saved.
14
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.
15
"So when you see the desolating sacrilege spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
16
then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains;
17
let him who is on the housetop not go down to take what is in his house;
18
and let him who is in the field not turn back to take his mantle.
19
And alas for those who are with child and for those who give suck in those days!
20
Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a sabbath.
21
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be.
22
And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
23
Then if any one says to you, 'Lo, here is the Christ!' or 'There he is!' do not believe it.
24
For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
25
Lo, I have told you beforehand.
26
So, if they say to you, 'Lo, he is in the wilderness,' do not go out; if they say, 'Lo, he is in the inner rooms,' do not believe it.
27
For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of man.
28
Wherever the body is, there the eagles will be gathered together.
29
"Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken;
30
then will appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory;
31
and he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
32
"From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near.
33
So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates.
34
Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away till all these things take place.
35
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
36
"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
37
As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man.
38
For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark,
39
and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man.
40
Then two men will be in the field; one is taken and one is left.
41
Two women will be grinding at the mill; one is taken and one is left.
42
Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
43
But know this, that if the householder had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have watched and would not have let his house be broken into.
44
Therefore you also must be ready; for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
45
"Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time?
46
Blessed is that servant whom his master when he comes will find so doing.
47
Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions.
48
But if that wicked servant says to himself, 'My master is delayed,'
49
and begins to beat his fellow servants, and eats and drinks with the drunken,
50
the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know,
51
and will punish him, and put him with the hypocrites; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.


Matthew 25

1
"Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.
2
Five of them were foolish, and five were wise.
3
For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them;
4
but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps.
5
As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept.
6
But at midnight there was a cry, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.'
7
Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps.
8
And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.'
9
But the wise replied, 'Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.'
10
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut.
11
Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, 'Lord, lord, open to us.'
12
But he replied, 'Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.'
13
Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
14
"For it will be as when a man going on a journey called his servants and entrusted to them his property;
15
to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away.
16
He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them; and he made five talents more.
17
So also, he who had the two talents made two talents more.
18
But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master's money.
19
Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them.
20
And he who had received the five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, 'Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.'
21
His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.'
22
And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, 'Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.'
23
His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.'
24
He also who had received the one talent came forward, saying, 'Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not winnow;
25
so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.'
26
But his master answered him, 'You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed?
27
Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest.
28
So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has the ten talents.
29
For to every one who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
30
And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.'
31
"When the Son of man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.
32
Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,
33
and he will place the sheep at his right hand, but the goats at the left.
34
Then the King will say to those at his right hand, 'Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world;
35
for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
36
I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.'
37
Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink?
38
And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee?
39
And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?'
40
And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'
41
Then he will say to those at his left hand, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels;
42
for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
43
I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.'
44
Then they also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to thee?'
45
Then he will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it not to one of the least of these, you did it not to me.'
46
And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
