“And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegrome commeth, goe ye out to meet him.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
25:6 At midnight - In an hour quite unthought of.
Mt 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made. Midnight is the hour of slumber and silence when an outcry is always startling and unexpected. The implication is that the cry of the coming of the Bridegroom, the trump of the archangel will be sudden and unexpected. Compare Mt 24:27 1Th 5:23.
