Matthew 25:1-13    Revised Standard Version (RSV)

“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens

 who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 

Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 

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 was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 

But at midnight there was a cry, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! 

Come out to meet him.’ Then all those maidens rose 

and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise, 

‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 

But the wise replied, ‘Perhaps there will not be enough for us 

and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’

 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, 

and those who were ready went in with him 

to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. 

Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, 

‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ But he replied, ‘Truly, I say to you,

 I do not know you.’ Watch therefore, for you know 

neither the day nor the hour.
