"For I was hungered, and gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me; I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw thee and hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw thee a stranger, and took him in? or naked, and clothe thee?"
- Matthew 25:35-38
