INVITED TO SUPPER

 

Luke 14:16-24

16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and

bade many: 17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them

that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. 18 And they

all with one [consent] began to make excuse. The first said unto

him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see

it: I pray thee have me excused. 19 And another said, I have

bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have

me excused. 20 And another said, I have married a wife, and

therefore I cannot come. 21 So that servant came, and shewed his

lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said

to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the

city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt,

and the blind. 22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou

hast commanded, and yet there is room. 23 And the lord said unto

the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel

[them] to come in, that my house may be filled. 24 For I say unto

you, That none of those men which were bidden shall taste of my

supper.
