Matthew 25: Jesus' Commandment to Us Regarding the Poor
 

 *Matthew 25:* 34"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you
who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared
for you since the creation of the world. *35For I was hungry and you gave me
something to eat*, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a
stranger and you invited me in, 36I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was
sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit 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? 38When did we see
you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When
did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'

40"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, *whatever you did for one of
the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' *

41"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are
cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. *42For
I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat,* I was thirsty and you gave me
nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed
clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not
look after me.'

44"They also will answer, *'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or
a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'*

45"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, *whatever you did not do for one
of the least of these, you did not do for me.' *

46"Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to
eternal life."
