14 When the hour had come, He reclined at the table, and the apostles with Him.15 And He said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer;16 for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”17 And when He had taken a cup andgiven thanks, He said, “Take this and share it among yourselves;18 for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until the kingdom of God comes.”19 And when He had taken some bread andgiven thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”20 And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.21 But behold, the hand of the one betraying Me is with [a]Mine on the table.22 For indeed, the Son of Man is going as it has been determined; but woe to that man by whom He is betrayed!”
25 “For this reason I say to you, [a]do not be worried about your [b]life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?26 Look at the birds of the [c]air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?27 And who of you by being worried can add a single[d]hour to his [e]life?28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin,29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith!31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.33 But [f]seek first [g]His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be [h]added to you.
Matthew 13:41-43New American Standard Bible (NASB)
41 The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom [a]all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness,42 and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, [b]let him hear.
