22 1 And again Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying, 22 2 "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a marriage feast for his son, 22 3 and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast; but they would not come. 22 4 Again he sent other servants, saying, 'Tell those who are invited, Behold, I have made ready my dinner, my oxen and my fat calves are killed, and everything is ready; come to the marriage feast.' 22 5 But they made light of it and went off, one to his farm, another to his business, 22 6 while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them. 22 7 The king was angry, and he sent his troops and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. 22 8 Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. 22 9 Go therefore to the thoroughfares, and invite to the marriage feast as many as you find.' 22 10 And those servants went out into the streets and gathered all whom they found, both bad and good; so the wedding hall was filled with guests.
