Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
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.
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.
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
They that [were] foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
And five of them were wise, and five [were] foolish.
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
