"Again he sent forth other 'servants, saying, Tell them that are bidden, Behold, I have made ready my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come 5 to the marriage feast. "But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his 6 merchandise: "and the rest laid hold on his 'servants, (7 and entreated them shamefully, and killed them. "But the king was wroth; and he sent his armies, and de8 stroyed those murderers, and burned their city. "Then saith he to his 'servants, The wedding is ready, but they 9 that were bidden were not worthy. "Go ye therefore unto the partings of the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage feast. "And those 1servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the 11 wedding was filled with guests. "But when the king came in to behold the guests, he saw there a man which had 12 not on a wedding-garment: "and he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding(13) garment?

Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they (16 might ensnare him in his talk. "And they send to him their disciples, with the Herodians, saying, 1Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, and carest not for any one for thou regardest not 17 the person of men.

(23 On that day there came to him Sadducees, which

say that there is no resurrection: and they asked him, 24 "saying, 1Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise (25 up seed unto his brother. "Now there were with us

But the Pharisees, when they heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, gathered themselves together. try(35 "And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, tempt 36 ing him, "Master, which is the great commandment in (37 the law? "And he said unto him, Thou shalt love the
