The Judgment

31 "But when 1the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then 2He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 "All the nations will be 3gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, 4as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep 5on His right, and the goats 6on the left. 34 "Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you who are blessed of My Father, 7inherit the kingdom prepared for you 8from the foundation of the world. 35 'For 9I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; 10I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 11naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you 12visited Me; 13I was in prison, and you came to Me.' 37 "Then the righteous will answer Him, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 'And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 'When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' 40 "14The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, 15to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.' 41 "Then He will also say to those on His left, '16Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the 17eternal fire which has been prepared for 18the devil and his angels; 42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.' 44 "Then they themselves also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not atake care of You?' 45 "Then He will answer them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' 46 "These will go away into 19eternal punishment, but the righteous into 20eternal life."
