Haweis(i) 1 THEN shall the kingdom of heaven be like to ten virgins, who taking their lamps, went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 But five of them were provident, and five foolish. 3 Those who were taking their lamps, took no oil with them: 4 but the provident took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 But as the bridegroom stayed long, they all slumbered and slept. 6 Then at midnight the cry came, Behold, the bridegroom is coming; go forth to meet him. 7 Then all these virgins arose, and set about trimming their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the provident, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the provident replied, saying, No; lest there be not a sufficiency for us and you: but go rather to those who sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 But while they were gone away to buy, the bridegroom came; and they who were prepared went in with him to the marriage-feast: and the door was shut.
