Judgment and Salvation

1 d  I was ready to be sought by e  those who did not ask for me;
I was ready to be found by those who did not seek me.
I said, “Here I am, here I am,”
to a nation that was not called by
Or  that did not call upon
my name.

The Parable of the Ten Virgins

1Then the kingdom of heaven will be like g  ten virgins who took their lamps
Or torches
and went to meet i  the bridegroom.
Some manuscripts add and the bride
2Five of them were foolish, and five were k  wise. 3For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, 4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom l  was delayed, they all became drowsy and slept. 6But m  at midnight there was a cry, ‘Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7Then all those virgins rose and n  trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9But the wise answered, saying, ‘Since there will not be enough for us and for you, go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ 10And while they were going to buy, the bridegroom came, and o  those who were ready went in with him to p  the marriage feast, and q  the door was shut. 11Afterward the other virgins came also, saying r  Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 s  But he answered, ‘Truly, I say to you t  I do not know you.’ 13 u  Watch therefore, for you v  know neither the day nor the hour.
