Where Went the Bride? Matthew 25.1-13 MGVHoffman CrossMarks.com
Then the dominion of the heavens will be like this:
Ten virgin bridesmaids who took their own lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
Now five of them were foolish Now five of them were foolish, and five were wise,
For the foolish ones, when they took their lamps, did not take extra oil with them.
But the wise ones took oil in flasks with their own lamps.
Now when the bridegroom was being delayed…
… they all became drowsy and fell fast asleep.
But at midnight, there came a shout,
“ Behold the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!”
Then all those bridesmaids arose
and got their own lamps ready.
Now the foolish ones said to to the wise ones,
“ Give us some of your oil, because our lamps are going out.”
But the wise ones replied, saying,
“ We think not! There will never be enough for us and for you. Instead, go to the sellers and buy for yourselves.”
But while they were going away to buy it,
the bridegroom came,
and the ones who were ready went inside with him into the wedding banquet.
And the door was shut.
And later, the remaining bridesmaids also come, saying,
“ Lord, Lord! Open up for us!”
But he replied and said,
“ Truly I tell you, I do not know you.”
Keep on staying alert, therefore, because you know neither the day nor the hour.
