Matthew 22

1 And Jesus answered aand spake unto them again by parables, and said, 2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, 3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. 4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: bmy oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. 5 But they cmade light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: 6 And dthe remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. 7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth ehis armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. 8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were fnot worthy. 9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. 10 So those servants went out into the highways, and ggathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man hwhich had not on a wedding garment: 12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he iwas speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him jinto outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 14 For kmany are called, but few are chosen.

15 Then lwent the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. 16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. 17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? 18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? 19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a mpenny. 20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? 21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, nRender therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. 22 When they had heard these words, they omarvelled, and left him, and went their way.

23 The qsame day came to him the Sadducees, pwhich say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, 24 Saying, Master, rMoses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. 25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother: 26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh. 27 And last of all the woman died also. 28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her. 29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, snot knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but tare as the angels of God in heaven. 31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, 32 I uam the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. 33 And when the multitude heard this, they vwere astonished at his doctrine.

34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. 35 Then one of them, which was wa lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, 36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, xThou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, yThou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On zthese two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

41 While athe Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. 43 He saith unto them, How then doth David bin spirit call him Lord, saying, 44 The cLORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? 46 And dno man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
