1 Hear my teaching, O my people; ♦︎ incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable; ♦︎ I will pour forth mysteries from of old,
3 Such as we have heard and known, ♦︎ which our forebears have told us.
4 We will not hide from their children, but will recount to generations to come, ♦︎ t
he praises of the Lord and his power and the wonderful works he has done.
5 He laid a solemn charge on Jacob and made it a law in Israel, ♦︎
which he commanded them to teach their children,
6 That the generations to come might know, and the children yet unborn, ♦︎
that they in turn might tell it to their children;
7 So that they might put their trust in God ♦︎
and not forget the deeds of God, but keep his commandments,
8 and that they should not be like their ancestors, a stubborn and rebellious generation,
a generation whose heart was not steadfast, whose spirit was not faithful to God.
Matthew 25: 1-13 25
‘Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids* took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.* 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. 6But at midnight there was a shout, “Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.” 7Then all those bridesmaids* got up and trimmed their lamps. 8The foolish said to the wise, “Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.” 9But the wise replied, “No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.” 10And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut. 11Later the other bridesmaids* came also, saying, “Lord, lord, open to us.” 12But he replied, “Truly I tell you, I do not know you.” 13Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
