CLV(i) 1 Then likened shall be the kingdom of the heavens to ten virgins, who getting their torches, came out to meet the bridegroom." 2 Now five of them were stupid and five prudent. 3 For the stupid, getting their torches, got no oil with them, 4 yet the prudent got oil in the crocks with their torches. 5 Now, at the delaying of the bridegroom, they all nod and drowsed." 6 Now in the middle of the night a clamor occurs: 'Lo! the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!' 7 Then roused were all those virgins, and they adorn their torches." 8 Now the stupid said to the prudent, 'Give us of your oil, for our torches are going out.'" 9 Yet the prudent answered, saying, 'No, lest at some time there should not be sufficient for us and you." 10 Now, at their coming away to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who are ready entered with him into the wedding festivities, and the door is locked."
