LEB(i) 1 "Then the kingdom of heaven may be compared to ten virgins who took their lamps and* went out to meet the bridegroom. 2 Now five of them were foolish and five were wise. 3 For when* the foolish ones took their lamps, they did not take olive oil with them. 4 But the wise ones took olive oil in flasks with their lamps. 5 And when* the bridegroom was delayed, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.* 6 But in the middle of the night there was a shout, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!' 7 Then all those virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish ones said to the wise ones, 'Give us some of your olive oil, because our lamps are going out!' 9 But the wise ones answered saying, "Certainly there will never be enough for us and for you! Go instead to those who sell olive oil* and buy some* for yourselves.' 10 But while* they had gone away to buy it* the bridegroom arrived, and those who were ready went inside with him to the wedding celebration, and the door was shut.
