    Matthew 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like to a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
    Matthew 22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
    Matthew 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatted calves are killed, and all things are ready: come to the marriage.

    Matthew 22:8 Then said he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
    Matthew 22:9 Go you therefore into the highways, and as many as you shall find, bid to the marriage.
    Matthew 22:10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

    Matthew 22:20 And he said to them, Whose is this image and superscription?

    Matthew 22:25 Now there were with us seven brothers: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife to his brother:
    Matthew 22:26 Likewise the second also, and the third, to the seventh.
    Matthew 22:27 And last of all the woman died also.
