22 “For just as the (A)new heavens and the new earth,
Which I make, will endure before Me,” declares the Lord,
“So will your (B)descendants and your (C)name endure.
23 And it shall be from (D)new moon to new moon
And from Sabbath to Sabbath,
All [a]mankind will come to (E)bow down before Me,” says the Lord.
24 “Then they will go out and look
At the (F)corpses of the people
Who have (G)rebelled against Me.
For their (H)worm will not die
(I)And their fire will not be extinguished;
And they will be an (J)abhorrence to all [b]mankind.”

Parable of the Marriage Feast

22 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying, (A)The kingdom of heaven [a]is like [b]a king who [c]held a (B)wedding feast for his son. And he (C)sent his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come. Again he (D)sent other slaves, saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened cattle are all butchered and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast!”’ But they paid no attention and went their separate ways, one to his own [d]farm, another to his business, and the rest seized his slaves and treated them abusively, and then killed them. Now the king was angry, and he sent his armies and destroyed those murderers and set their city on fire. Then he *said to his slaves, ‘The wedding feast is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. So go to (E)the main roads, and invite whomever you find there to the wedding feast.’ 10 Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered together all whom they found, both bad and good; and the wedding hall was filled with [e]dinner guests.

11 “But when the king came in to look over the [f]dinner guests, he saw (F)a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, 12 and he *said to him, ‘(G)Friend, how did you get in here without wedding clothes?’ And the man was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the servants, ‘Tie his hands and feet, and throw him into (H)the outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth in that place.’ 14 For many are [g](I)called, but few are (J)chosen.”
