To whom he said, Whether ye be able to make the sons of the spouse to fast [Whether ye may make the sons of the spouse to fast], while the spouse is with them?

And he said to them also a likeness; For no man taketh a piece from a new cloak [of a new cloth], and putteth it into an old clothing [and putteth it into an old cloth]; else both he breaketh the new, and the piece of the new accordeth not to the old.
And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine shall break the bottles, and the wine shall be shed out, and the bottles shall perish.
But new wine oweth to be put into new bottles [But new wine is to be put into new wine vessels], and both be kept.
And no man drinking the old, will at once the new; for he saith, The old is the better. [And no man drinking old, will anon new; soothly he saith, The old is better.]
