Matthew 25:33

And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Read Chapter 25

Theophylact of Ochrid

AD 1107
Since the first coming of the Lord was not with glory but with dishonor and indignity, He says, "When He shall come in His glory." For at the second coming He will come with glory, escorted by angels. First He will divide the saints from the sinners, delivering them from tribulations, and set them on His right, and then speak to them. He calls the saints "sheep" on account of their gentleness, and because they yield fruit and useful things for us, as do sheep, providing wool, which is divine and spiritual protection, and milk, which is the sustenance that is needed. The goats are the sinners, for they walk along the precipices and are unruly and fruitless.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
