Luke 14:15-24 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

15 And when one of them that sat together at the meat had heard these things, he said to him, Blessed is he, that shall eat bread in the realm of God.

16 And he said to him, A man made a great supper [Some man made a great supper], and called many.

17 And he sent his servant in the hour of supper, to say to men that were bidden to the feast, that they should come, for now all things be ready.

18 And all began together to excuse them(selves). The first said [to him], I have bought a town, and I have need to go out, and see it; I pray thee, have me excused.

19 And the tother said, I have bought five yokes of oxen, and I go to prove them; I pray thee, have me excused.

20 And another said, I have wedded a wife; and therefore I may not come.

21 And the servant turned again, and told these things to his lord. Then the husbandman was wroth, and said to his servant, Go out swiftly into the great streets and the small streets of the city [Then the husbandman wroth, said to his servant, Go out soon into great streets and small streets of the city], and bring in hither poor men, and feeble, [and] blind men, and crooked.

22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done, as thou hast commanded, and yet there is a void place [and yet there is a place].

23 And the lord said to the servant, Go out into ways and hedges, and constrain men to enter, that mine house be full-filled [that mine house be filled].

24 For I say to you, that none of those men that be called, shall taste my supper.

Luke 14:15-24 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

15 When one of those who sat at food also heard that, he said to Jesus, Happy is he who eats bread in the kingdom of God! 

16 Then Jesus said to him, A certain man prepared a great supper and invited many people. 17 And he sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were bidden, Come, for all things are now ready. 18 And they all at once began to make excuse. The first said to him, I have bought a farm, and I need to go and see it; I pray you, have me excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen and I’m going to inspect them; I pray you, have me excused. 20 The third said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.

21 And the servant went and brought his master word of this. Then was the lord of the house displeased, and said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and quarters of the city, and bring in here the poor and the maimed and the lame and the blind.

22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as you ordered, and still there is room. 23 And the lord said to the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel the people to come in, so that my house may be filled. 24 For I say to you that none of those men that were bidden shall taste of my supper.

Luke 14:15-24 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

15 ¶ Now when one of them that sat at table heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that eateth bread in the kingdom of God.

16 Then said he to 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 [a]But they all with [b]one mind began to make excuse: The first said unto him, I have bought a farm, and I must needs go out 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 returned, and showed his master these things. Then was the good man of the house angry, and said to his servant, Go out quickly into the [c]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 Then the master said to the servant, Go out into the highways, and hedges, and compel them to come in, that mine house may be filled.

24 For I say unto you, that none of those men which were bidden, shall taste of my supper.
