They all got up (Mt 25:7-25:7)

“Then all those bridesmaids

Got up.

They trimmed

Their lamps.”

 

τότε ἠγέρθησαν πᾶσαι αἱ παρθένοι ἐκεῖναι καὶ ἐκόσμησαν τὰς λαμπάδας ἑαυτῶν.

 

This parable story is unique to Matthew.  Jesus continued with this parable.  All those 10 bridesmaids got up (τότε ἠγέρθησαν πᾶσαι αἱ παρθένοι ἐκεῖναι).  They trimmed or decorated their lamps so that they would be in good order (καὶ ἐκόσμησαν τὰς λαμπάδας ἑαυτῶν) for the procession.  All of these 10 bridesmaids tried to get their lamps or lanterns ready.
