Then began he to speak to the people this parable ; A man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen ; and went into a

1 far country for a long time. 10 And at the season he sent a

servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard ; but the husbandmen beat

him, and sent him away 11 empty. And again he sent

another servant ; and they beat him also, and entreated

him shamefully, and sent 12 him away empty. And again

of the vineyard ; What shall I do? I will send my beloved son ; it may be they will

reverence him when they 14 see him.

vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the

lord of the vineyard do unto 16 them ? He shall come and

destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others. And when they

heard it, they said; God 17 forbid.

MATTHEW XXII. And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by 2 parables, and said ; The kingdom of heaven is like unto a 3 certain king, which made a marriage for his son, and

sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to 4 the wedding; and they would not come. 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 5 marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways; 6 one to his farm, another, to his merchandise. And the

remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and 7 slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth;

and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murder8 ers, and burned up their city. Then saith he to his ser

this then that is written ;

ers rejected, the same is be-

upon that stone shall be bro-
ken; but on whomsoever it

shall fall, it will grind him to 19 powder. And the chief

priests and the scribes the same hour sought to lay hands on him; and they feared the people ; for they perceived that he had spoken this parable against them.

MATTHEW XXII. vants; The wedding is ready, but they which were bid9 den were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways, 10 and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. So

those servants went out into the highways, and gathered

together all, as many as they found, both bad and good; 11 and the wedding was furnished with guests. And when

the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man 12 which had not on a wedding garment; and he saith unto

him ; Friend, how comest thou in hither, not having a wed13 ding garment? And he was speechless. 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 weep14 ing and gnashing of teeth. For inany are called, but few

are chosen.
