Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And Jesus answering, spoke again in parables to them, saying: 1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying:
2 The kingdom of heaven is likened to a king who made a marriage for his son. 2 "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.
3 And he sent his servants to call them that were invited to the marriage: and they would not come. 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come.
4 Again he sent other servants, saying: Tell them that were invited, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my beeves and fatlings are killed, and all things are ready. Come ye to the marriage. 4 "Then he sent some more servants and said, 'Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.'
5 But they neglected and went their ways, one to his farm and another to his merchandise. 5 "But they paid no attention and went off--one to his field, another to his business.
6 And the rest laid hands on his servants and, having treated them contumeliously, put them to death. 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them.
7 But when the king had heard of it, he was angry: and sending his armies, he destroyed those murderers and burnt their city. 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city.
8 Then he saith to his servants: The marriage indeed is ready; but they that were invited were not worthy. 8 "Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come.
9 Go ye therefore into the highways; and as many as you shall find, call to the marriage. 9 Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.'
10 And his servants going forth into the ways, gathered together all that they found, both bad and good: and the marriage was filled with guests. 10 So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.
11 And the king went in to see the guests: and he saw there a man who had not on a wedding garment. 11 "But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes.
12 And he saith to him: Friend, how camest thou in hither not having on a wedding garment? But he was silent. 12 'Friend,' he asked, 'how did you get in here without wedding clothes?' The man was speechless.
13 Then the king said to the waiters: Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 "Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'
14 For many are called, but few are chosen. 14 "For many are invited, but few are chosen."
15 Then the Pharisees going, consulted among themselves how to insnare him in his speech. 15 Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words.
16 And they sent to him their disciples with the Herodians, saying: Master, we know that thou art a true speaker and teachest the way of God in truth. Neither carest thou for any man: for thou dost not regard the person of men. 16 They sent their disciples to him along with the Herodians. "Teacher," they said, "we know you are a man of integrity and that you teach the way of God in accordance with the truth. You aren't swayed by men, because you pay no attention to who they are.
17 Tell us therefore what dost thou think? Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?"
18 But Jesus knowing their wickedness, said: Why do you tempt me, ye hypocrites? 18 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, "You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me?
19 Shew me the coin of the tribute. And they offered him a penny. 19 Show me the coin used for paying the tax." They brought him a denarius,
20 And Jesus saith to them: Whose image and inscription is this? 20 and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?"
21 They say to him: Caesar’s. Then he saith to them: Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God, the things that are God’s. 21 "Caesar's," they replied. Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."
22 And hearing this, they wondered and, leaving him, went their ways. 22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away.
23 That day there came to him the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection; and asked him, 23 That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question.
24 Saying: Master, Moses said: If a man die having no son, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up issue to his brother. 24 "Teacher," they said, "Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him.
25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first having married a wife, died; and not having issue, left his wife to his brother. 25 Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother.
26 In like manner the second and the third and so on, to the seventh. 26 The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh.
27 And last of all the woman died also. 27 Finally, the woman died.
28 At the resurrection therefore, whose wife of the seven shall she be? For they all had her. 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?"
29 And Jesus answering, said to them: You err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God. 29 Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.
30 For in the resurrection they shall neither marry nor be married, but shall be as the angels of God in heaven. 30 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.
31 And concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken by God, saying to you: 31 But about the resurrection of the dead--have you not read what God said to you,
32 I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead but of the living. 32 'I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob' ? He is not the God of the dead but of the living."
33 And the multitudes hearing it were in admiration at his doctrine. 33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching.
34 But the Pharisees, hearing that he had silenced the Sadducees, came together. 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together.
35 And one of them, a doctor of the law, asked him, tempting him: 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question:
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"
37 Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart and with thy whole soul and with thy whole mind. 37 Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'
38 This is the greatest and the first commandment. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.
39 And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
40 On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets. 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
41 And the Pharisees being gathered together, Jesus asked them, 41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
42 Saying: What think you of Christ? Whose son is he? They say to him: David’s. 42 "What do you think about the Christ ? Whose son is he?" "The son of David," they replied.
43 He saith to them: How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying: 43 He said to them, "How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him 'Lord'? For he says,
44 The Lord said to my Lord: Sit on my right hand, until I make thy enemies thy footstool? 44 " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet." '
45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? 45 If then David calls him 'Lord,' how can he be his son?"
46 And no man was able to answer him a word: neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions. 46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.
