Matthew, Chapter 22
22nd And Jesus answered the people again and spake unto them again in parables and said the Kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain King which who made a marriage for <​his​> son and <​when the marriage was ready he​> sent forth his servents to call them that were bidden to the wedding and they would not come again he sent forth other servents saying tell them that are bidden behold I have prepared my Oxen and my fatling<​s​> have been killed and my dinner is ready and all things are prepared therefore come unto the marriage but they made light of the servents and went their ways one to his farm and another to his merchantdize and the remnant took his servents and entreated them spitefully and slew them but when the King heard that his servents were dead he was wroth and he sent forth his armies and destroyed these <​those​> murderers and burnt up their City then saith he to his servents the wedding is ready but they which <​who​> were bidden were not worthy go ye therefore into the highways and as many as ye shall find bid to the weddings marriage so those servents went out into the highways and gathered together all as many as they found both bad and good and the wedding was furnashed with guests but when the King came in to see the guests he saw there a man whic <​who​> had not on a wedding garment and he saith unto them <​him​> friend how cometh <​camest​> thou in hither not having a wedding garment and he was speechless. Then said the King unto his servents bind him hand and foot and take and cast him away into outer darkness there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth for many are called but few chosen wherefore not <​all​> do not have on the wedding garment. Then went the Pharasees <​and took council​> how they might entangle them <​him​> in talk and they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodeans saying master we know that thou art true and teaches the way of God in truth neither carest thou for any for thou reguardest not [p. 52]
