"And when the human son comes in his glory
and all the angels with him,
then he will sit on his glorious throne;
and all the nations will be gathered before him,
and he will separate them from each other,
as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,
and he will put the sheep on his right,
and the goats on his left.
"Then the king will say to those on his right,
'Come blessed ones of my Father,
inherit the sovereignty prepared for you
from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
I was naked and you dressed me,
I was ailing and you visited me,
I was in prison and you came to me.'
"Then the just will answer him saying, 'Lord,
when did we see you hungering and feed you,
or thirsty and give you a drink?
And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you,
or naked and dress you?
And when did we see you ailing
or in prison and come to you?'
"And the king answering will say to them, 'Amen, I tell you,
as you did it for one of the smallest of these brothers of mine,
you did it for me.'
"Then also he will say to those on the left,
'Go from me cursed ones into the eternal fire
prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you did not give me anything to eat,
I was thirsty and you did not give me a drink,
I was a stranger and you did not welcome me,
I was naked and you did not dress me,
I was ailing and in prison and you did not visit me.'
"Then they also will answer saying, 'Lord,
when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger
or naked or ailing or in prison and not minister to you?'
"Then he will answer them saying, 'Amen, I tell you,
as you did not do it for one of the smallest of these,
you did not do it for me.'
And these will go away into eternal punishment,
but the just into eternal life."
