What sentence did Jesus declare should be pronounced on those on the right hand ?

35. For I was an hungred, and ye gave Me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took Me in ;

36. Naked, and ye clothed Me; I was sick, and ye visited Me; I was in prison, and ye came unto Me.

The righteous are represented as disclaiming the good deeds imputed to them, saying : Lord, when saw we Thee an hungred, and fed Thee; or thirsty, and gave Thee drink, &c. but what was the answer to them ? 40. The King shall answer and say

unto them : Verily, I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me.

What is the judgment that will be denounced against those on the left hand ?

41. Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels :

43. I was a stranger, and ye took Me not in ; naked, and ye clothed Me not; sick, and in prison, and ye visited Me not.

When they attempted to justify themselves, saying-When saw we Thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto Thee--what was their Lord's answer?

45. Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to Me.

46. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into life eternal.
