22 Revised Standard Version Passage

1And again Jesus spoke to them in parables, saying,The Parable of the Marriage Feast Mt.22.1-14 | Lk.14.15-24
2"The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a marriage feast for his son, 
3and sent his servants to call those who were invited to the marriage feast; but they would not come. 
4Again 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.' 
5But they made light of it and went off, one to his farm, another to his business, 
6while the rest seized his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them. 
7The king was angry, and he sent his troops and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. 
8Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding is ready, but those invited were not worthy. 
9Go therefore to the thoroughfares, and invite to the marriage feast as many as you find.' 
10And 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.
