Matthew 25:1-10

Worsley(i) 1 Then will the kingdom of heaven be like ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom: and five of them were wise, 2 and five were foolish. 3 The foolish ones took their lamps, and took no oil with them: 4 but the wise took oil in their vessels as well as in their lamps. 5 Now while the bridegroom stayed, they were all drowsy and fell asleep: 6 and in the middle of the night there was a cry, The bridegroom is coming, go out to meet him. 7 Then all the virgins rose up and trimmed their lamps: 8 and the foolish ones said to the wise, Give us of your oil, for our lamps are going out: 9 but the wise answered them, saying, Least there should not be enough for us and you, go rather to them that sell it, 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-feast, and then the door was shut.
