New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
1 "Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. 1 "At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
2 "Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. 2 Five of them were foolish and five were wise.
3 "For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 3 The foolish ones took their lamps but did not take any oil with them.
4 but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. 4 The wise, however, took oil in jars along with their lamps.
5 "Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. 5 The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
6 "But at midnight there was a shout, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' 6 "At midnight the cry rang out: 'Here's the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!'
