NRS 37 Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them.

CEB 40 You also must be ready, because the Human One is coming at a time when you don't expect him." NRS 40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour."
