MSTC(i) 1 Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went to meet the bridegroom: 2 five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 The foolish took their lamps, but took none oil with them. 4 But the wise took oil with them in their vessels with their lamps also. 5 While the bridegroom tarried, all slumbered and slept. 6 And even at midnight, there was a cry made, 'Behold, the bridegroom cometh, go out against him.' 7 Then all those virgins arose, and prepared their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, 'Give us of your oil, for our lamps go out.' 9 But the wise answered, saying, 'Not so, lest there be not enough for us and you, but go rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.' 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came: and they that were ready, went in with him to the wedding, and the gate was shut up.
