Matthew 25:1-13

1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins,

which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2

And five of them were wise, and five [were] foolish. 3 They that

[were] foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 But

the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the

bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. 6 And at

midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go

ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed

their lamps. 8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of

your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered,

saying, [Not so]; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go

ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while

they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready

went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. 11

Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to

us. 12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know

you not. 13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the

hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
