Thanks & appreciation about 60 Minutes story "Christians of the Holy Land"

Dear Bob Simon & CBS News,

As members of the indigenous Palestinian Christians citizens of the Holy Land, We are writing to express our deep thanks and appreciation with the 60 Minutes story "Christians of the Holy Land" which aired on April 22nd. This story exposed Zionist fabrications which are the greatest threats facing the Christians of the Holy land and Middle East. By focusing on the right story and blaming the right party, for the first time in the history of the American media, you have allowed a precious opportunity for understanding the truth.

Let us re-confirm some of the facts:

* During its creation in 1948, Palestinian Christian population has lost 75% it's population, of what is now the State of Israel, became refugees. Entire Christian villages were destroyed by Israel; and tens of thousands of Christians were expelled. Some areas of today’s west Jerusalem, such as Talbiya and Katamon, were home to thousands of Palestinian Christians whose homes were looted and private property confiscated.

* In the occupied West Bank, the Christian population has shrunk in absolute terms since the Israeli occupation in 1967.

* You can ask any Palestinian Christian who lives in the USA, Canada, Australia, Britain, Sweden, Lebanon, Jordan, Salvador and Chile... and elsewhere, why did they leave Palestine or who forced them to leave Palestine... the 95% answer will be the occupation, apartheid wall that cut through private property and isolate people from their families, checkpoints, curfews, land theft, home demolishes, revoking residency rights, bombing, restrictions on movement, bad economy, siege, blockade, road blocks, racism and hatred.

Just few weeks ago, thousands of Palestinian Christians from the Gaza Strip and the West Bank were once again denied their right to worship in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher for Easter celebrations. And, the ones who were lucky enough obtain a permit from the Israeli military to enter Jerusalem, they had to cross through humiliating racist checkpoints to cross from one part of their occupied homeland to another.

We still have to live with the irony that Christians tourists from all over the world will freely access the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, located just a few kilometers away from our homes, while we cannot enjoy the same right. As Easter brings its message of resurrection, we will be praying for the resurrection of justice for everyone on this land.

Based on our thousands of years as Christians in Palestine, we were appalled by the false allegations regarding Palestinian Christians made by the Zionist Ambassador Michael Oren. We were perplexed not because of his position, which has been part of the official Israeli Zionist narrative for many years, but by how openly they have distorted facts and misconstrued the plight of Palestinian Christians pursuing justice and peace.

He has wrongly propagated a cynical discourse misleadingly touting “Christian persecution by Muslims.

The Christians of the Holy land do face unprecedented threats. We are witnessing the collapse of the first and ancient Christian communities of Palestine.

Your choice to expose these threats and focus on the real issues that face the Christian population; you have proved your professionalism.

By succeeding to challenge to Zionist pressure, whom they claim to be the only democracy in the Middle East, while are working hard to silence others who do not agree with them, you have done a tremendous favor to all who truly care about the fate of the Middle East's Christians and especially Palestinian Christians.

Thanks for exposing how the Israel Lobby pressures media about Israel: Keep on reporting unbiased and uncompromised news on Israel-Palestine. Americans should have media that does not buckle under political pressure from powerful, wealthy foreign lobbies. Thank you CBS and Bob Simon for bringing the first "crack" in the wall of unfair bias that has pervaded American media for so long concerning Israel.

We are looking forward for more in-depth reports

Final Trial of Christians and Muslims together - THE ONLY TRUE ISRAELO-CHRISTIANS THE PALESTINIANS click on picture

Palestine Cry: The last Christian village in the Holy Land - 60 Minutes Overtime - CBS News: "Taybeh's roots are deep, and for Christians, important: the biblical name of the village is Ephraim. According to the Bible, Jesus Christ came to Taybeh from Jerusalem before his crucifixion. John 11:54 states: "Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near to the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim, and there continued with his disciples.""

E10 on the Map.
(Ephron). et-Taiyibeh. 2 Chron 13:19: "And Abijah pursued after Jeroboam, and took cities from him, Beth-el with the towns thereof, and Jeshanah with the towns thereof, and Ephron with the towns thereof." Many scholars translate this as "Ephraim". This is also thought by many to be identical with Ophrah (`ophrah, Josh 18:23) and with Ephraim (`ephrayim, 2 Sam 13:23) which both have been identified within the town of eT Taiyibeh.

2 Sam. 13:23; John 11:54.

Nazareth is in the Galilee half way between the Mediterranean and the Sea of Galilee. Taybeh is to the south in the ancient area of Judea, Samaria, Perea.

John 11:54 Wherefore Jesus walked no more openly among the Jews, but he went into a country near the desert, unto a city that is called Ephrem [Ephraim-Taybeh], and there he abode with his disciples.



Christ teaches at Nazareth. He sends forth the twelve apostles: He feeds five thousand with five loaves; and walks upon the sea.

1 And *going out from thence, he went into his own country; and his disciples followed him.

2 And when the sabbath was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were in admiration at his doctrine: saying: How came this man by all these things? and what wisdom is this that is given to him, and such mighty works as are wrought by his hands?

3 *Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James (Yaqub) and Joseph (Yoseh), and Jude (Yehuda) and Simon (Shimon), are not also his sisters here with us? and they were scandalized in regard of him.

4 And Jesus said to them: *A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and in his own house, and among his own kindred.

5 And he could not do any miracle there, only that he cured a few that were sick, laying his hands upon them.

6 And he wondered because of their unbelief, and he went through the villages round about teaching.

7 *And he called the twelve; and began to send them two and two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.

8 And he commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, but a staff only: no scrip, no bread, nor money in their purse,

9 *But to be shod with sandals, and that they should not put on two coats.

10 And he said to them: Wheresoever you shall enter into an house, there abide till you depart from that place.

11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, *going forth from thence, shake off the dust from your feet for a testimony to them.

12 And going forth they preached that they should repent:

13 And they cast out many demons, *and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them:

Traditional Catholic Prayers: Canaan

Part of the descent of the Messiah, Who is Only Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, 'Isa al Maseeh. He is of the tribe of Judah truly a Hebrew but not a "Jew;" He is Palestinian and Israelo-Palestinian of Cannan. He is the Incarnate Word of God as He promised Adam and Noah and Abraham and Moses and David and Daniel and was born of the Holy Spirit and the blessed virgin Maryam. He was crucified for us and rose again and is returning from heaven to raise and judge ALL men for eternity.

Gospel of Luke

3:34 Who was of Jacob, who was of Isaac, who was of Abraham [Abram], who was ofThare, who was of Nachor,

3:35 Who was of Sarug, who was of Ragau, who was ofPhaleg, who was of Heber, who was of Sale,

3:36 Who was of Cainan, who was of Arphaxad, who was ofSem, who was of Noe, who was of Lamech,

3:37 Who was of Mathusale, who was of Henoch, who was ofJared, who was ofMalaleel, who was of Cainan,

3:38 Who was of Henos, who was of Seth, who was of Adam, who was of God.

Note that Heber (Father of the Hebrews) is the direct descendant of Sem (Semitic) through Arphaxad(means NOT of Chaldea - Chaldea is Nimrud's Osiria-Mesopotamia) through Cainan (Canaan) throughCainan's offspring Sale. Not a Jew in sight, all Canaanite Palestinian Hebrews. As to Jesus being of the "Jews," only the tribe of Judah as a descent from Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Judas (tribe of Judah) is meant. See Luke Chapter 3 and Matthew Chapter 1 - see bottom for both. The actual Israelites, and especially those who Jesus was descended through, are as Semitic and Canaanite and Hebrew as the Palestinians are today, for those Palestinians are exactly descended from the SAME people as Jesus was. None of the Osiria-Mesopotamian and None of the Idumean and Baylonian inbred genealogy of the Haburah and Pharisaic Rabbinic background belongs to Christ. In so far as the Judaist claims by any of the impostor Hebrews through the centuries are concerned none of the Haburah-Naasseni-Essene-Pharisees and none of the Persian and None of the Sephardic and Most Especially NONE of the Khazar pretend Jews are in fact Hebrews. The last descendants of the SAME people from Adam to Christ in Jesus Christ's lineage are the Palestinians of today. No one else. UNLIKE the racist Talmudic Illuminist Judaists, Jesus Christ, 'Isa al Maseeh, the Messiah, offers His salvation to all. His salvation is real. The Judaists and their false messiah are damned. See: Good versus evil: The Antichrist will be a Jew.

In the descent of the Messiah, Who is Only Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the Masoretic text - a contrivance by the Rabbinic Jews from first century A.D. completed by 900 A.D. to alter the meaning of the Bible, Cainan or Canaan is left out totally on purpose in Genesis Chapter 11. The meaning and reason is this. The intent and and purpose of God was always from the beginning and at the promise to Adam of the Redeemer to have the Messiah, Who is Only Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to appear in the Holy Land, which is Canaan - Palestine. The original Canaanites, from whom today's Palestinians are descended were in the direct descent of the Messiah. The reason they were there is because God intended and in fact did take flesh of them in order to Redeem mankind. The ever jealous and blasphemous Pharisaic Jews took that out in the Masoretic text, but they could not touch it in the Septuagint nor in the New Testament texts. The reason the Rabbis took it out was to substitute themselves and their false messiah who is actually the Antichrist, Dajjal, in the place of Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. They will fail eternally.

Matthew 10:4

1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and (Jude) Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

Saint Simon and Saint Jude pray for Palestine. Simon the Canaanite and his brother Jude were Canaanites, that is, ancient Palestinians.

Saint Simon the Cananite (ancient Palestinian) Apostle among the twelve.
He preached the Gospel in Egypt, Mauritania (Spain), and Libya, leaving behind him the fertile hills of Galilee, where he had cultivated vineyards and olive gardens.

Saint Jude Thaddeus Apostle among the twelve.
He labored for the Gospel in Palestine: Judea-Samaria, Syria, Mesopotamia, and Greater Armenia.

Saint Simon later rejoined his brother, Saint Jude, in Persia, where they labored and died together. They converted the Zoroastrian king of Persia. They had invoked heavenly power over two tigers which had been rampaging in the country and and drove them off. The king and 60,000 Persians became Christians. The demons were expelled and their idolatrous temples were cast down. Churches were built there for the worship of the true God. The jealous Zoroastrians commanded the Apostles to offer sacrifice to the Sun, which of course the Apostles refused to do. The pagans then martyred the two Apostles of Christ.

That ancient Sun worship is the source of the Thule Cult of the Nazis and the equally false cult of Banna of the Salafi Muslim Brotherhood and is closely allied with the Babylonian Haburah of those falsely called Jews who are all the New World Order persecutors of the true Church today. All of the persecutors of true Christians and true Muslims have their root in the VERY REAL Milleniums old Babylonian Jewish Conspiracy to rule the world which is the HABURAH.

This is the source of and the final fulfillment in the False Jewish Messiah, the Antichrist, ad-Dajjal who will seek to sit in a temple of god[s] in Jerusalem and rule the world therefrom.

Wisdom is Justified by Her Children

It is become increasingly clear that the Palestinians are only pawns to be used by any number of interests.

All the Jews who had any conscience at all in Occupied Palestine, whether Sabras (born there) or not, started leaving in the 1980′s.

The obvious solution is for all Palestinian people to simply leave and go anywhere else.

In preaching to the multitudes about the destruction of Jerusalem, which He foretold, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ warned them to flee and not be there when the end came. The Christians listened and fled to Pella (East of the Jordan River) when Jerusalem fell and NONE of the Christians were harmed. The Perfidious and always bloody Jews where utterly destroyed by the Roman General Titus in 70 A.D.

Jesus Christ speaking. Matthew 24:15 When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that readeth let him understand. 16 Then they that are in Judea, let them flee to the mountains: 17 And he that is on the housetop, let him not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 And he that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat. 19 And woe to them that are with child, and that give suck in those days. 20 But pray that your flight be not in the winter, or on the sabbath.

There will be right of full return when the ZioNazis are all gone.

Wisdom is Justified by Her Children

According to St. Augustine the Sixth Age of the World lasts until the Second Coming of Christ.

Our Lord Jesus Christ's Second Coming is, according to St. Augustine, the Seventh Day. (Ages and Days are the same. They are not of equal length from one to the next.) The Eighth Day is the eternal age in the recreated universe when Christ has returned and reigns visibly forevermore.

Parallel passage references are from the full consensus of the Church Fathers according to the Council of Trent.


1 ¶ And Jesus being come out of the temple, went away. And his disciples came to shew him the buildings of the temple.

2 And he answering, said to them: Do you see all these things? Amen I say to you, there shall not be left here a stone upon a stone that shall not be destroyed.


44 And beat thee flat to the ground, and thy children who are in thee. And they shall not leave in thee a stone upon a stone: because thou hast not known the time of thy visitation. (DRV)

The temple destruction was in 70 A.D. See Luke chapter 21.]

3 aAnd when he was sitting on mount Olivet, the disciples came to him privately, saying: bTell us when shall these things be? cAnd what shall be the sign of thy coming and of the consummation of the world?

[v. 3 This dates this as basically end time prophecy from this point on]

4 ¶ And Jesus answering, said to them: Take heed that no man seduce you.


8 ¶ For thus saith the Lord of hosts the God of Israel: Let not your prophets that are in the midst of you, and your diviners deceive you: and give no heed to your dreams which you dream: (DRV)

Eph:5:6, 11, 24:

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words. For because of these things cometh the anger of God upon the children of unbelief.

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness: but rather reprove them.

24a Therefore as the church is subject to Christ: (DRV)


14 And the Lord said to me: The prophets prophesy falsely in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, nor have I spoken to them: they prophesy unto you a lying vision, and divination and deceit, and the seduction of their own heart. (DRV)]

5 For many will come in my name saying, I am Christ. And they will seduce many.

6 And you shall hear of wars and rumours of wars. See that ye be not troubled. For these things must come to pass: but the end is not yet.

7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And there shall be pestilences and famines and earthquakes in places.

8 Now all these are the beginnings of sorrows.

9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted and shall put you to death: and you shall be hated by all nations for my name's sake.

10 And then shall many be scandalized and shall betray one another and shall hate one another.

11 And many false prophets shall rise and shall seduce many.

12 And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold.

13 But he that shall persevere to the end, he shall be saved.

14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations: and then shall the consummation come.

[This dates this from here on as the end of the eschaton. The eschaton is the consummation of this age of grace which began with Our Lord Jesus Christ’s Incarnation by the Holy Spirit, conceived and born of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The eschaton or the ending events, began with v. 3c "And what shall be the sign of thy coming and of the consummation of the world?" From here on it is the very final events leading up to Our Lord’s Second Coming. See article directly below for continuation.]

15 When therefore you shall see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place: he that readeth let him understand.


27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many, in one week: and in the half of the week the victim and the sacrifice shall fail: and there shall be in the temple the abomination of desolation: and the desolation shall continue even to the consummation, and to the end. (DRV)]

16 Then they that are in Judea, let them flee to the mountains:

[Means to utterly flee from any involvement with the with those things contrary to the Gospel.]

17 And he that is on the housetop, let him not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 And he that is in the field, let him not go back to take his coat.

19 And woe to them that are with child and that give suck in those days.

20 But pray that your flight be not in the winter or on the sabbath.

21 For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.

22 And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sakeof the elect those days shall be shortened.

[This refers to the short duration, by God’s Sovereign command, of the persecution.]

23 Then if any man shall say to you, Lo here is Christ, or there: do not believe him.

24 For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect.

25 Behold I have told it to you, beforehand.

26 If therefore they shall say to you, Behold he is in the desert: go ye not out. Behold he is in the closets: believe it not.

[From v. 27 on down is the Second Coming of Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the general resurrection of all men and the final judgement by Jesus Christ Himself.]

27 For as lightning comethout of the east and appeareth even into the west: so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

28 Wheresoever the body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together.

29 And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light and the stars shall fall from heaven and the powers of heaven shall be moved.

30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven. And then shall all tribes of the earth mourn: and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with much power and majesty.

31 And he shall send his angels with a trumpet and a great voice: and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the farthest parts of the heavens to the utmost bounds of them.

32 ¶ And from the fig tree learn a parable: When the branch thereof is now tender and the leaves come forth, you know that summer is nigh.

33 So you also, when you shall see all these things, know ye that it is nigh, even at the doors.

34 Amen I say to you that this generation shall not pass till all these things be done.

35 Heaven and earth shall pass: but my words shall not pass.

36 But of that day and hour no one knoweth: no, not the angels of heaven, but the Father alone.

37 And as in the days of Noe, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

38 For, as in the days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, even till that day in which Noe entered into the ark:

39 And they knew not till the flood came and took them all away: so also shall the coming of the Son of man be.

40 Then two shall be in the field. One shall be taken and one shall be left.

41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill. One shall be taken and one shall be left.

[vs. 40 and 41 According to the Church Fathers and Doctors this refers to the binding of the cockle to be burnt with eternal fire. The cockle are the damned and the ones who do the binding are God’s angels. This does not refer to any “secret rapture”. There is no “secret rapture”. The so-called “secret rapture” is heretical docetic denial of the resurrection.]

42 Watch ye therefore, because you know not what hour your Lord will come.

43 But this know ye, that, if the goodman of the house knew at what hour the thief would come, he would certainly watch and would not suffer his house to be broken open.

44 Wherefore be you also ready, because at what hour you know not the Son of man will come.

45 Who, thinkest thou, is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath appointed over his family, to give them meat in season?

46 Blessed is that servant, whom when his lord shall come he shall find so doing.

47 Amen I say to you: he shall place him over all his goods.

48 But if that evil servant shall say in his heart: My lord is long a coming:

49 And shall begin to strike his fellow servants and shall eat and drink with drunkards:

50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day that he hopeth not and at an hour that he knoweth not:

51 And shall separate him and appoint his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.



71. Vespasian ruled for ten years. Vigorous in military discipline, through his fighting he restored to the republic many provinces which Nero had lost. He was unmindful of offenses and he bore lightly the insults said against him. In his second year Titus took and overthrew Jerusalem, where 1,100,000 Jews perished by famine and the sword. Beyond these, another 100,000 were publicly sold into slavery.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The Christians heeded Our Lord Jesus Christ's warning in 70 A.D. and fled from Jerusalem to Pella and were not harmed.

Generation in the text in the Greek can mean a human generation or any length of time. The emphasis in the Gospel of St. Luke is on 70 A.D.

Lk:21. 1-38

And looking on, he saw the rich men cast their gifts into the treasury.

And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in two brass mites.

And he said: Verily, I say to you that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all.

For all these have of their abundance cast into the offerings of God: but she of her want hath cast in all the living that she had.

And some saying of the temple that it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said:

These things which you see, the days will come in which there shall not be left a stone upon a stone that shall not be thrown down.

And they asked him, saying: Master, when shall these things be? And what shall be the sign when they shall begin to come to pass?

Who said: Take heed you be not seduced: for many will come in my name, saying: I am he and the time is at hand. Go ye not therefore after them.

And when you shall hear of wars and seditions, be not terrified. These things must first come to pass: but the end is not yet presently.

Then he said to them: Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.

And there shall be great earthquakes in divers places and pestilences and famines and terrors from heaven: and there shall be great signs.

But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, dragging you before kings and governors, for my name's sake.

And it shall happen unto you for a testimony.

Lay it up therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before how you shall answer:

For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to resist and gainsay.

And you shall be betrayed by your parents and brethren and kinsmen and friends: and some of you they will put to death.

And you shall be hated by all men for my name's sake.

But a hair of your head shall not perish.

In your patience you shall possess your souls.

And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed about with an army, then know that the desolation thereof is at hand. [This is Our Lord Jesus Christ’s Prophecy of the Destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. by Titus.]

Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains: and those who are in the midst thereof depart out: and those who are in the countries not enter into it. [The Christians heeded and were not destroyed.]

For these are the days of vengeance, that all things may be fulfilled, that are written.

But woe to them that are with child and give suck in those days: for there shall be great distress in the land and wrath upon this people.

And they shall fall by the edge of the sword and shall be led away captives into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles till the times of the nations be fulfilled.

And there shall be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, by reason of the confusion of the roaring of the sea, and of the waves:

Men withering away for fear and expectation of what shall come upon the whole world. For the powers of heaven shall be moved.

And then they shall see the Son of man coming in a cloud, with great power and majesty.

But when these things begin to come to pass, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is at hand.

And he spoke to them a similitude. See the fig tree and all the trees:

When they now shoot forth their fruit, you know that summer is nigh;

So you also, when you shall see these things come to pass, know that the kingdom of God is at hand.

Amen, I say to you, this generation shall not pass away till all things be fulfilled.

Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

And take heed to yourselves, lest perhaps your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting and drunkenness and the cares of this life: and that day come upon you suddenly.

For as a snare shall it come upon all that sit upon the face of the whole earth.

Watch ye, therefore, praying at all times, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that are to come and to stand before the Son of man.

And in the daytime, he was teaching in the temple: but at night going out, he abode in the mount that is called Olivet.

And all the people came early in the morning to him in the temple, to hear him.

Mt:25. 1-46
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be like to ten virgins, who taking their lamps went out to meet the bridegroom and the bride.

And five of them were foolish and five wise.

But the five foolish, having taken their lamps, did not take oil with them.

But the wise took oil in their vessels with the lamps.

And the bridegroom tarrying, they all slumbered and slept.

And at midnight there was a cry made: Behold the bridegroom cometh. Go ye forth to meet him.

Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps.

And the foolish said to the wise: Give us of your oil, for our lamps are gone out.

The wise answered, saying: Lest perhaps there be not enough for us and for you, go ye rather to them that sell and buy for yourselves.

Now whilst they went to buy the bridegroom came: and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage. And the door was shut.

But at last came also the other virgins, saying: Lord, Lord, open to us.

But he answering said: Amen I say to you, I know you not.

Watch ye therefore, because you know not the day nor the hour.

For even as a man going into a far country called his servants and delivered to them his goods;

And to one he gave five talents, and to another two, and to another one, to every one according to his proper ability: and immediately he took his journey.

And he that had received the five talents went his way and traded with the same and gained other five.

And in like manner he that had received the two gained other two.

But he that had received the one, going his way, digged into the earth and hid his lord's money.

But after a long time the lord of those servants came and reckoned with them.

And he that had received the five talents coming, brought other five talents, saying: Lord, thou didst deliver to me five talents. Behold I have gained other five over and above.

His lord said to him: Well done, good and faithful servant, because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things. Enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

And he also that had received the two talents came and said: Lord, thou deliveredst two talents to me. Behold I have gained other two.

His lord said to him: Well done, good and faithful servant: because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things. Enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

But he that had received the one talent, came and said: Lord, I know that thou art a hard man; thou reapest where thou hast not sown and gatherest where thou hast not strewed.

And being afraid, I went and hid thy talent in the earth. Behold here thou hast that which is thine.

And his lord answering, said to him: Wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sow not and gather where I have not strewed.

Thou oughtest therefore to have committed my money to the bankers: and at my coming I should have received my own with usury.

Take ye away therefore the talent from him and give it him that hath ten talents.

For to every one that hath shall be given, and he shall abound: but from him that hath not, that also which he seemeth to have shall be taken away.

And the unprofitable servant, cast ye out into the exterior darkness. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

And when the Son of man shall come in his majesty, and all the angels with him, then shall he sit upon the seat of his majesty.

And all nations shall be gathered together before him: and he shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats:

And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.

Then shall the king say to them that shall be on his right hand: Come, ye blessed of my Father, possess you the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.

For I was hungry, and you gave me to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave me to drink: I was a stranger, and you took me in:

Naked, and you covered me: sick, and you visited me: I was in prison, and you came to me.

Then shall the just answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry and fed thee: thirsty and gave thee drink?

Or when did we see thee a stranger and took thee in? Or naked and covered thee?

Or when did we see thee sick or in prison and came to thee?

And the king answering shall say to them: Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these my least brethren, you did it to me.

Then he shall say to them also that shall be on his left hand: Depart from me, you cursed, into everlasting fire, which was prepared for the devil and his angels.

For I was hungry and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty and you gave me not to drink.

I was a stranger and you took me not in: naked and you covered me not: sick and in prison and you did not visit me.

Then they also shall answer him, saying: Lord, when did we see thee hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not minister to thee?

Then he shall answer them, saying: Amen: I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me.

And these shall go into everlasting punishment: but the just, into life everlasting.
