MATTHEW XXII. And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by 2 parables, and said ; The kingdom of heaven is like unto a 3 certain king, which made a marriage for his son, and

sent forth his servants to call them that !were bidden to A the wedding; and they would not come. Again he sent

forth other servants, saying ; Tell them which are bidden; Behold, I have prepared my dinner ; my oxen and my fat

lings are killed, and all things are ready; come unto the 5 marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways; 6 one to his farm, another to his merchandise. And the

remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and 7 slew them. But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth;

and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murder8 ers, and burned up their city. Then saith he to his ser

shall fall, it will grind him to 19 powder. And the chief
