14 Revised Standard Version Passage

7Now he told a parable to those who were invited, when he marked how they chose the places of honor, saying to them,A Lesson to Guests and a Host Lk.14.7-14 (Peraea)
8"When you are invited by any one to a marriage feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest a more eminent man than you be invited by him; 
9and he who invited you both will come and say to you, 'Give place to this man,' and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place. 
10But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when your host comes he may say to you, 'Friend, go up higher'; then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you. 
11For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." 
12He said also to the man who had invited him, "When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your kinsmen or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return, and you be repaid. 
13But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, 
14and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just."
