"Then the kingdom of heaven will be like 1ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet 2the bridegroom.
Five of them were foolish, and five were 3wise.
For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them,
but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps.
As the bridegroom 4was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept.
But 5at midnight there was a cry, 'Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.'
Then all those virgins rose and 6trimmed their lamps.
And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.'
But the wise answered, saying, 'Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.'
And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and 7those who were ready went in with him to 8the marriage feast, and 9the door was shut.
Afterward the other virgins came also, saying, 10'Lord, lord, open to us.'
11But he answered, 'Truly, I say to you, 12I do not know you.'
13Watch therefore, for you 14know neither the day nor the hour.
