The Gospel According to Matthew [Greek: κατὰ Ματθαῖον εὐαγγέλιον, kata Matthaion euangelion, or τὸ εὐαγγέλιον κατὰ Ματθαῖον, to euangelion kata Matthaion] (c. 70 - 110), generally referred to as the Gospel of Matthew or simply Matthew, is one of the four gospels accepted as canon by most Christians, a synoptic gospel, and the first book of the New Testament. It tells of the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.

- “When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne.
And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
And he will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.
- New World Translation, Matthew 25: 31-33
- “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, YOU who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for YOU from the founding of the world.
For I became hungry and YOU gave me something to eat; I got thirsty and YOU gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and YOU received me hospitably;
naked, and YOU clothed me. I fell sick and YOU looked after me. I was in prison and YOU came to me.’
Then the righteous ones will answer him with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty, and give you something to drink?
When did we see you a stranger and receive you hospitably, or naked, and clothe you?
When did we see you sick or in prison and go to you?’
And in reply the king will say to them, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did it to one of the least of these my brothers, YOU did it to me.’
- New World Translation, Matthew 25: 34-40
- “Then he will say, in turn, to those on his left, ‘Be on YOUR way from me, YOU who have been cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels.
For I became hungry, but YOU gave me nothing to eat, and I got thirsty, but YOU gave me nothing to drink.
I was a stranger, but YOU did not receive me hospitably; naked, but YOU did not clothe me; sick and in prison, but YOU did not look after me.’
Then they also will answer with the words, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and did not minister to you?’
Then he will answer them with the words, ‘Truly I say to YOU, To the extent that YOU did not do it to one of these least ones, YOU did not do it to me.’
And these will depart into everlasting cutting-off, but the righteous ones into everlasting life.”
