Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew

32 TOA ev.jpg

Jesus spoke to his disciples of his coming; he said this parable:
"The kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten girls invited to the wedding, which took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.
Five of them were insane, and five were sighted: the senseless had taken their lamp without carry oil, while the far-sighted had taken, with their lamp, of the oil in reserve.
As the bridegroom was, they all became drowsy and fell asleep.
In the middle of the night, a cry was heard: 'Behold the husband! Exit at its meeting.'
Then all these young girls awoke and prepared their lamp.
The senseless asked the sighted: 'Give us of your oil; for our lamps are extinguished."
The far-sighted their replied: 'this never will suffice for us and for you; go rather get it for you at merchants."
While they went away to buy, the bridegroom came. Those who were ready went in with him to the wedding hall and they closed the door.
Later, the other young girls arrive at their turn and say: 'Lord, Lord, open to us!
And he said unto them: 'Amen, I say to you: I do not know you."
So make sure, because you know neither the day nor the hour. "
