30 And (A)cast (B)the worthless servant into the outer darkness. In that place (C)there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

The Final Judgment

31 (D)“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, (E)then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 Before him (F)will be gathered (G)all the nations, and (H)he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates (I)the sheep from the goats. 33 And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. 34 Then (J)the King will say to (K)those on his right, ‘Come, you (L)who are blessed by my Father, (M)inherit (N)the kingdom (O)prepared for you (P)from the foundation of the world. 35 For (Q)I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you (R)gave me drink, (S)I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 (T)I was naked and you clothed me, (U)I was sick and you (V)visited me, (W)I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40 And (X)the King will answer them, (Y)‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these (Z)my brothers,[a] you did it to me.’

41 “Then he will say to those on his left, (AA)‘Depart from me, you (AB)cursed, into (AC)the eternal fire prepared for (AD)the devil and his angels.
