|Let your waists be girded, and let lamps be burning in your hands.
|And let you yourselves be like men awaiting their lord, when he will return from the wedding; so that, when he arrives and knocks, they may open to him promptly.
|Blessed are those servants whom the Lord, when he returns, will find being vigilant. Amen I say to you, that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, while he, continuing on, will minister to them.
|And if he will return in the second watch, or if in the third watch, and if he will find them to be so: then blessed are those servants.
