14 Then the disciples of John came to Him, saying, “Why do we and the Pharisees fast [a]often, but Your disciples do not fast?”
15 And Jesus said to them, “Canthe[b]friends of the bridegroom mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, andthen they will fast.16 No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for[c]the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse.17 Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins[d]break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
33 Then they said to Him, “Why[a] do the disciples of John fast often and make prayers, and likewise those of the Pharisees, but Yours eat and drink?”
34 And He said to them, “Can you make the friends of the bridegroom fast while thebridegroom is with them?35 But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them; then they will fast in those days.”
36 Then He spoke a parable to them: “No one[b]puts a piece from a new garment on an old one; otherwise the new makes a tear, and also the piece that was taken out of the new does not match the old.37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; or else the new wine will burst the wineskins and be spilled, and the wineskins will be ruined.38 But new wine must be put into new wineskins,[c]and both are preserved.39 And no one, having drunk old wine,[d]immediately desires new; for he says, ‘The old is[e]better.’ ”
