when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the blind lame, the blind, and thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompence thee; for thou shalt be recompenced at the resurection <​4​> of the just. <​4​> And when one of them who sat at meat <​with him,​> heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed he is he who shall eat meat <​bread​> in the kingdom of God. Then said he unto him, a certain man made a great supper, and bade many; and sent his servents at supper time, to say to them who were bidden, come, for all things are now ready. and the <​they​> all with one consent , began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a peice of ground, and I must needs go and see it; I pray thee have me excused. and another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them, I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, therefore I cannot come. So that servent came and shewed his Lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry, said to his servents, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the City, and bring hither the poor, and the maimed, the halt, and the blind. And the servent said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. The Lord said unto his servent, Go out into the high ways, and the hedges, and compel men to come in, that my house may be filled; for I say unto you, that none of those men who were bidden, shall taste of my <​5​> supper. <​5​> And when he had finished these sayings, he departed thence, and there went great multitudes with him, and he turned and said unto them, If any one come to me, and hate not his father, and Mother, and wife, and children, and breatheren, and sisters or husband, yea, and their own life also; or in other words, is not afraid to lay down their life for my sake, cannot be my disciple and whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple. Wherefore, settle this in your hearts, that ye do the will do the things which I shall teach and command you. For which of you, intending to build a tower sitteth <​not​> down first, and counteth the cost, wheather ye <​he​> have <​has​> money to finish your his work? Lest unhaply <​unhappily​>, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish his work, and all that <​who​> begin to behold, begin to mock him, saying, <​6​> This man began to build, and was not able to finish. <​6​> And this [p. 82 (second numbering)]
when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, and thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompence thee; for thou shalt be recompenced at the resurection 4 of the just. 4 And when one of them who sat at meat with him, heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God. Then said he unto him, a certain man made a great supper, and bade many; and sent his servents at supper time, to say to them who were bidden, come, for all things are now ready. and they all with one consent , began to make excuse.
