When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding
To a wedding dinner, or to any other; such an one as the present entertainment was, which was not a marriage feast, for they might not marry on the sabbath day; (See Gill on John 2:1) but a common sabbath meal:
sit not down in the highest room:
in the chief place at table, as soon as come in:
lest a more honourable man;
for age, office, dignity, wisdom, learning, or riches:
than thou be bidden of him:
the master of the feast; and who may not yet be come, and for whom the chief place may be designed, and will better suit him.
