|Luke 14:17-21 |
17 And he sent his servant at supper time to say to those who were invited, 'Come, for all things are now ready.'
18 But they all began to make excuses. The first said to him, 'I have bought a piece of land, and I must go and see it. I beg you to excuse me.'
19 Another said, 'I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am going to test them. I beg you to excuse me.'
20 And another said, 'I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.'
21 So the servant came and reported these things to his lord. Then the master of the house became angry and said to his servant, 'Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city and bring in the poor and the crippled and the lame and the blind.'
