31 “To what can I compare the people of this generation?” Jesus asked. “How can I describe them?32 They are like children playing a game in the public square. They complain to their friends,
‘We played wedding songs, and you didn’t dance, so we played funeral songs, and you didn’t weep.’
33 For John the Baptist didn’t spend his time eating bread or drinking wine, and you say, ‘He’s possessed by a demon.’34 The Son of Man,[a] on the other hand, feasts and drinks, and you say, ‘He’s a glutton and a drunkard, and a friend of tax collectors and other sinners!’35 But wisdom is shown to be right by the lives of those who follow it.[b]”
7:34“Son of Man” is a title Jesus used for himself.
7:35Or But wisdom is justified by all her children.
