“Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.”
King James Version (KJV)
25:7 They trimmed their lamps - They examined themselves and prepared to meet their God.
Mt 25:7 All . . . arose, and trimmed their lamps. The object of trimming would be to secure a brighter light. It would involve the trimming of the wick and replenishing the oil if needed. When the cry does arise there will be a wonderful lamp-trimming.
