THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 25 - Verse 5

Verse 5. The bridegroom tarried. That is, while they waited for him. It was uncertain at what time he would come. He delayed longer than they expected.

All slumbered and slept. Waiting till near midnight, they fell into repose. This circumstance is not to be pressed to prove that all Christians will be asleep, or cold and careless, when the Lord Jesus will come. It will not be true. Many may be so; but many also will be looking for his coming. This circumstance is designed simply to show more clearly the duty of being ready, Mt 25:13. It does not mean to affirm it as a fact that none will be ready.

{x} "slumbered" 1 Th 5:6
