For I was hungry, and you gave me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me nothing to drink;
I was a stranger, and you did not invite me in; naked, and you did not clothe me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit me.
Then they themselves also will answer, "Lord, when did we see you hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of you?"
Then He will answer them, "Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me."
