on whomsoever this stone shall fall, it shall grind him to powder. & <​And​> when the Lord therefore of the Vineyard cometh, he will destroy those miserable, wicked men, & will let again his vineyard unto other husbandmen; even in the last days, which shall render him the fruits <​14/​> in their seasons. <​14/​> & <​And​> then understood they the parable which he spake unto them, that the gentiles should be destroyed <​also,​> when the Lord should decend out of Heaven to reign in his vineyard, which is the Earth & the inhabitants thereof.
Matthew, Chapter 22
Chapter XXII the parable of the Marriage supper &c
<​1/​> And Jesus answered the People again, & spake unto them in parables, & said, The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain King, 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; & they would not come. <​2/​> Again he Sent forth other Servents, <​saying,​> Tell them that are bidden, Behold I have prepared my oxen, & my fatlings have been killed, & my dinner is ready, & all things are prepared; therefore come unto the marriage. But they made light of the Servents, & went their ways; one to his farm, & another to his Merchandize; & the remnant took his Servents, & entreated them spitefully, & slew them. But when the King heard that his servents were dead, he was wroth; & he sent forth his armies <​3/​> & destroyed those murderers, & burnt up their City. <​3/​> Then saith <​said​> he to his servents, The wedding is ready; but they who were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, & as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. So those servents went out into the highways, & gethered together all, as many as they found, both bad & good; & <​4/​> the weding was furnished with guests. <​4/​> But when the King came in to See the guests, he saw there a man who had not a weding garment; & he saith <​said​> unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither, not having a weding garment? & <​And​> he was speechless. Then said the King unto his Servents, Bind him hand & foot, & take & cast him away into outer darkness; there shall be weeping & gnashing of teeth; for many are called, but few <​5/​> Chosen; wherefore all do not have on the wedding garment. <​5/​> Then went the Pharisees & took council how they might entangle him in his talk. & <​And​> they sent out unto him their deciples with the Herrodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, & teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any; for thou regardest not the person of men; tell us therefore, what thinkest theou <​thou?​> Is it lawful to give [p. 41 (first numbering)]

And when the Lord therefore of the Vineyard cometh, he will destroy those miserable, wicked men, & will let again his vineyard unto other husbandmen; even in the last days, which shall render him the fruits 14/ in their seasons. 14/ And then understood they the parable which he spake unto them, that the gentiles should be destroyed also, when the Lord should decend out of Heaven to reign in his vineyard, which is the Earth & the inhabitants thereof.

Chapter XXII the parable of the Marriage supper &c
1/ And Jesus answered the People again, & spake unto them in parables, & said, The Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a certain King, 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; & they would not come. 2/ Again he Sent forth other Servents, saying, Tell them that are bidden, Behold I have prepared my oxen, & my fatlings have been killed, & my dinner is ready, & all things are prepared; therefore come unto the marriage. But they made light of the Servents, & went their ways; one to his farm, & another to his Merchandize; & the remnant took his Servents, & entreated them spitefully, & slew them. But when the King heard that his servents were dead, he was wroth; & he sent forth his armies 3/ & destroyed those murderers, & burnt up their City. 3/ Then said he to his servents, The wedding is ready; but they who were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, & as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. So those servents went out into the highways, & gethered together all, as many as they found, both bad & good; & 4/ the weding was furnished with guests. 4/ But when the King came in to See the guests, he saw there a man who had not a weding garment; & he said unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither, not having a weding garment? And he was speechless. Then said the King unto his Servents, Bind him hand & foot, & take & cast him away into outer darkness; there shall be weeping & gnashing of teeth; for many are called, but few 5/ Chosen; wherefore all do not have on the wedding garment. 5/ Then went the Pharisees & took council how they might entangle him in talk. And they sent out unto him their deciples with the Herrodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, & teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any; for thou regardest not the person of men; tell us therefore, what thinkest thou?
