'Groom' in the Bible
Jesus asked them, "The wedding guests can't mourn as long as the groom is with them, can they? But the time will come when the groom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast."
"At that time, the kingdom from heaven will be comparable to ten bridesmaids who took their oil lamps and went out to meet the groom.
Since the groom was late, all of them became sleepy and lay down.
But at midnight there came a shout: "The groom is here! Come out to meet him!'
"While they were away buying it, the groom arrived. Those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet, and the door was closed.
Jesus replied, "The wedding guests can't fast while the groom is with them, can they? As long as they have the groom with them, they can't fast.
But the time will come when the groom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day."
But Jesus told them, "You can't force the wedding guests to fast while the groom is still with them, can you?
