While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold,…

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

1 John 2:15-29

KJV
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
