Luke 12:35-40 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Be in Readiness

35 [a]Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit. 36 Be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns from the wedding feast, so that they may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks. 37 Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them. 38 Whether he comes in the [b]second watch, or even in the [c]third, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.

39 But [d]be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be [e]broken into. 40 You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not [f]expect.”
