And Jesus said to them, 4"Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? 5The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and 6then they will fast.16No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch tears away from the garment, and a worse tear is made.17Neither is new wine put into old 7wineskins. If it is, the skins burst and the wine is spilled and the skins are destroyed. But new wine is put into fresh wineskins, and so both are preserved."
