WYC 1 And Jesus answered, and spake again in parables to them, and said, NIV 1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: WYC 2 The kingdom of heavens is made like to a king that made weddings to his son. [The kingdom of heavens is like to a man king that made weddings to his son.] NIV 2 "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. WYC 3 And he sent his servants to call men that were bidden to the weddings, and they would not come. NIV 3 He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. WYC 4 Again he sent other servants, and said [saying], Say to the men that be bidden to the feast, Lo! I have made ready my meat, my bulls and my volatiles be slain [my bulls and my volatiles, or my fat beasts, be slain], and all things be ready; come ye to the weddings. NIV 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.' WYC 5 But they despised, and went forth, one into his town, another to his merchandise. [Soothly they despised, or reckoned not, and they went away, one into his vineyard, forsooth another to his merchandise.] NIV 5 "But they paid no attention and went off--one to his field, another to his business. WYC 6 But [the] others held his servants, and tormented them, and slew [them]. NIV 6 The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. WYC 7 But the king, when he had heard, was wroth; and he sent his hosts, and destroyed those man-quellers, and burnt their city. NIV 7 The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. WYC 8 Then he said to his servants [Then he saith to his servants], The weddings be ready, but they that were called to the feast, were not worthy. NIV 8 "Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. WYC 9 Therefore go ye into the ends of ways, and whomever ye find, call ye to the weddings. [Therefore go ye to the outgoings, or ends, of ways, and whomever ye shall find, call to the weddings.] NIV 9 Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.' WYC 10 And his servants went out into the ways, and gathered together all that they found, good and evil; and the bridal [and the weddings] was full-filled with men sitting at the meat. NIV 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. WYC 11 And the king entered, to see men sitting at the meat; and he saw there a man not clothed with bride clothes [and he saw there a man not clothed with bridal clothes]. NIV 11 "But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes. WYC 12 And he said to him, Friend, how enteredest thou hither without bride clothes [And he saith to him, Friend, how enteredest thou hither, not having bride clothes]? And he was dumb. NIV 12 'Friend,' he asked, 'how did you get in here without wedding clothes?' The man was speechless. WYC 13 Then the king bade his ministers, Bind him both hands and feet, and send ye him into outer-more darknesses; there shall be weeping and grinding of teeth. [Then the king said to the ministers, His hands and feet bound, send ye him into utter-more darknesses; there shall be weeping and beating together of teeth.] NIV 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.' WYC 14 For many be called, but few be chosen. NIV 14 "For many are invited, but few are chosen." WYC 15 Then Pharisees went away, and took a counsel to take Jesus in word. [Then Pharisees, going away, took a counsel, that they should take him in word.] NIV 15 Then the Pharisees went out and laid plans to trap him in his words. WYC 16 And they send to him their disciples, with Herodians, and said [saying], Master, we know, that thou art soothfast, and thou teachest in truth the way of God, and thou carest not of any man [and there is no care, or charge, to thee of any man], for thou beholdest not the person of men. NIV 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. WYC 17 Therefore say to us, what seemeth to thee. Is it leaveful that tribute be given to the emperor, either nay [+Is it leaveful that tribute be given to Caesar, rent, or nay]? NIV 17 Tell us then, what is your opinion? Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?" WYC 18 And when Jesus had known the wickedness of them, he said, Hypocrites, what tempt ye me? NIV 18 But Jesus, knowing their evil intent, said, "You hypocrites, why are you trying to trap me? WYC 19 Show ye to me the print of the money. And they brought to him a penny. NIV 19 Show me the coin used for paying the tax." They brought him a denarius, WYC 20 And Jesus said to them [And Jesus saith to them], Whose is this image, and the writing above? NIV 20 and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription?" WYC 21 They say to him, The emperor's. Then he said to them, Therefore yield ye to the emperor those things that be the emperor's, and to God those things that be of God. [+They say to him, Of Caesar. Then he saith to them, Therefore yield ye to Caesar those things that be Caesar's/those things that be of Caesar, and to God those things that be of God.] NIV 21 "Caesar's," they replied. Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." WYC 22 And they heard, and wondered; and they left him, and went away. [And they hearing wondered; and, him left, they went away.] NIV 22 When they heard this, they were amazed. So they left him and went away. WYC 23 In that day Sadducees, that say there is no rising again to life [that say there is no rising again], came to him, and asked him, NIV 23 That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. WYC 24 and said, Master, Moses said, if any man is dead [saying, Master, Moses said, if any man be dead], not having a son, that his brother wed his wife, and raise seed to his brother. NIV 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. WYC 25 And there were seven brethren to us; and the first wedded a wife, and is dead. And he had no seed, and left his wife to his brother; [Forsooth seven brethren were with us; and the first, a wife wedded, is dead. And he not having seed, left his wife to his brother;] NIV 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. WYC 26 also the second, and the third, till to the seventh. NIV 26 The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh. WYC 27 But the last of all, [also] the woman is dead. NIV 27 Finally, the woman died. WYC 28 Also in the rising again to life [Therefore in the rising again], whose wife of the seven shall she be? for all had her. NIV 28 Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?" WYC 29 Jesus answered, and said to them, Ye err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the virtue of God. NIV 29 Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. WYC 30 For in the rising again to life, neither they shall wed, neither shall be wedded [For in the rising again, neither they wed, neither be wedded]; but they be as the angels of God in heaven. NIV 30 At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven. WYC 31 And of the rising again of dead men, have ye not read, that [it] is said of the Lord, that saith to you [that it is said of the Lord, saying to you], NIV 31 But about the resurrection of the dead--have you not read what God said to you, WYC 32 I am God of Abraham, and God of Isaac, and God of Jacob? he is not God of dead men, but of living men. NIV 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." WYC 33 And the people hearing [And the companies hearing], wondered on his teaching. NIV 33 When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching. WYC 34 And the Pharisees heard that he had put silence to Sadducees, and came together. NIV 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. WYC 35 And one of them, a teacher of the law, asked Jesus, and tempted him, [And one of them, a teacher of the law, asked Jesus, tempting him,] NIV 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: WYC 36 Master, which is a great commandment in the law? NIV 36 "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" WYC 37 Jesus said to him, Thou shalt love thy Lord God, of all thine heart, and in all thy soul, and in all thy mind [Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, of all thine heart, and of all thy soul, and in all thy mind]. NIV 37 Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' WYC 38 This is the first and the most commandment. NIV 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. WYC 39 And the second is like to this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. NIV 39 And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' WYC 40 In these two commandments hangeth all the law and the prophets. NIV 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." WYC 41 And when the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, NIV 41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, WYC 42 and said [saying], What seemeth to you of Christ, whose son is he? They say to him, Of David. NIV 42 "What do you think about the Christ ? Whose son is he?" "The son of David," they replied. WYC 43 He saith to them, How then David in spirit calleth him Lord, and saith [saying], NIV 43 He said to them, "How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him 'Lord'? For he says, WYC 44 The Lord said to my Lord, Sit [thou] on my right half, till I put thine enemies a stool of thy feet? NIV 44 " 'The Lord said to my Lord: "Sit at my right hand until I put your enemies under your feet." ' WYC 45 Then if David calleth him Lord, how is he his son? NIV 45 If then David calls him 'Lord,' how can he be his son?" WYC 46 And no man might answer a word to him, neither any man was hardy from that day, to ask him more. NIV 46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.
