14 Revised Standard Version Passage

15When one of those who sat at table with him heard this, he said to him, "Blessed is he who shall eat bread in the kingdom of God!"The Parable of the Great Banquet Lk.14.15-24 (Peraea) | Mt.22.1-10
16But he said to him, "A man once gave a great banquet, and invited many; 
17and at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, 'Come; for all is now ready.' 
18But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, 'I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it; I pray you, have me excused.' 
19And another said, 'I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them; I pray you, have me excused.' 
20And another said, 'I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.' 
21So the servant came and reported this to his master. Then the householder in anger said to his servant, 'Go out quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and maimed and blind and lame.' 
22And the servant said, 'Sir, what you commanded has been done, and still there is room.' 
23And the master said to the servant, 'Go out to the highways and hedges, and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled. 
24For I tell you The Greek word for YOU here is plural, none of those men who were invited shall taste my banquet.'"
