And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
All Commentaries on Matthew 25:2 Go To Matthew 25
Hilary of Poitiers
: The wise virgins are those who, embracing the time available to them, were prepared at the first onset of the coming of the Lord. But the foolish were those who were lax and unmindful. They troubled themselves only over present matters and, forgetting what God said, did not direct their efforts toward hope for resurrection.
