Matthew 25:1-10

Wesley(i) 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be like ten virgins, who taking their lamps, went forth to meet the bridegroom. 2 But five of them were wise, and five were foolish. 3 They that were foolish, taking their lamps, took not oil with them. 4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6 But at midnight there was a cry, Behold the bridegroom cometh: come ye out to meet him. 7 Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. 8 And the foolish said to the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. 9 But the wise answered, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: go ye 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 marriage; and the door was shut.
