Matthew 22:1-22 KJV

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: my oxen and my fatlings are killed , and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
5 But they made light of it, and went their ways , one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
6 And the 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 his 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 not 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 gathered 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 which 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 was speechless .
15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.
19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.a
