‘Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their
lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five
were wise. 3When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them;
4
but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps.
As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. 6But
at midnight there was a shout, “Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to
meet him.” 7Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps.

The foolish said to the wise, “Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.” 9But the wise replied, “No! there will not be enough for you and for
us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.” 10And
while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready
went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut.
11
Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying, “Lord, lord, open to us.”
But he replied, “Truly I tell you, I do not know you.” 13Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
