Matthew 22:1: And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
Matthew 22:2: The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
Matthew 22:3: And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
Matthew 22:4: Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
Matthew 22:5: But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
Matthew 22:6: And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
Matthew 22:7: But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
Matthew 22:8: Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
Matthew 22:9: Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
Matthew 22:10: So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
Matthew 22:11: And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
Matthew 22:12: And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
Matthew 22:13: Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Matthew 22:14: For many are called, but few are chosen.
