Matthew 25:13-15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

13 Therefore, stay awake,[a] for you know neither the day nor the hour.

The Parable of the Talents.[b] 14 “It will be as when a man who was going on a journey[c] called in his servants and entrusted his possessions to them. 15 To one he gave five talents;[d] to another, two; to a third, one—to each according to his ability. Then he went away. Immediately

Footnotes:

  1. 25:13 Stay awake: some scholars see this command as an addition to the original parable of Matthew’s traditional material, since in Mt 25:5 all the virgins, wise and foolish, fall asleep. But the wise virgins are adequately equipped for their task, and stay awake may mean no more than to be prepared; cf. Mt 24:42, 44.
  2. 25:14–30 Cf. Lk 19:12–27.
  3. 25:14 It will be as when…journey: literally, “For just as a man who was going on a journey.” Although the comparison is not completed, the sense is clear; the kingdom of heaven is like the situation here described. Faithful use of one’s gifts will lead to participation in the fullness of the kingdom, lazy inactivity to exclusion from it.
  4. 25:15 Talents: see note on Mt 18:24.
