Matthew 22 (WEBP)

[1] Jesus answered and spoke to them again in parables, saying,
[2] “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a certain king, who made a wedding feast for his son,
[3] and sent out his servants to call those who were invited to the wedding feast, but they would not come.
[4] Again he sent out other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner. My cattle and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready. Come to the wedding feast!” ’
[5] But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his merchandise;
[6] and the rest grabbed his servants, treated them shamefully, and killed them.
[7] When the king heard that, he was angry, and sent his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned their city.
[8] “Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited weren’t worthy.
[9] Go therefore to the intersections of the highways, and as many as you may find, invite to the wedding feast.’
[10] Those servants went out into the highways and gathered together as many as they found, both bad and good. The wedding was filled with guests.
[11] “But when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man who didn’t have on wedding clothing,
[12] and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here not wearing wedding clothing?’ He was speechless.
[13] Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, take him away, and throw him into the outer darkness. That is where the weeping and grinding of teeth will be.’
[14] For many are called, but few chosen.”
[15] Then the Pharisees went and took counsel how they might entrap him in his talk.
[16] They sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are honest, and teach the way of God in truth, no matter whom you teach; for you aren’t partial to anyone.
[17] Tell us therefore, what do you think? Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”
[18] But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, “Why do you test me, you hypocrites?
[19] Show me the tax money.” They brought to him a denarius.
[20] He asked them, “Whose is this image and inscription?”
[21] They said to him, “Caesar’s.” Then he said to them, “Give therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”
[22] When they heard it, they marveled, and left him and went away.
[23] On that day Sadducees (those who say that there is no resurrection) came to him. They asked him,
[24] saying, “Teacher, Moses said, ‘If a man dies, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife and raise up offspring§ for his brother.’
[25] Now there were with us seven brothers. The first married and died, and having no offspring left his wife to his brother.
[26] In the same way, the second also, and the third, to the seventh.
[27] After them all, the woman died.
[28] In the resurrection therefore, whose wife will she be of the seven? For they all had her.”
[29] But Jesus answered them, “You are mistaken, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.
[30] For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like God’s angels in heaven.
[31] But concerning the resurrection of the dead, haven’t you read that which was spoken to you by God, saying,
[32] ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.”
[33] When the multitudes heard it, they were astonished at his teaching.
[34] But the Pharisees, when they heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, gathered themselves together.
[35] One of them, a lawyer, asked him a question, testing him.
[36] “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?”
[37] Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’
[38] This is the first and great commandment.
[39] A second likewise is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
[40] The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.”
[41] Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question,
[42] saying, “What do you think of the Christ? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “Of David.”
[43] He said to them, “How then does David in the Spirit call him Lord, saying,
[44] ‘The Lord said to my Lord, sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet’?
[45] “If then David calls him Lord, how is he his son?”
[46] No one was able to answer him a word, neither did any man dare ask him any more questions from that day forward.

Matthew 22 (KJVS)

[1] And G2532 Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846 again G3825 by G1722 parables G3850, and said G3004 (PresActPtc),
[2] The kingdom G932 of heaven G3772 is like G3666 (AorPasInd) unto a certain G444 king G935, which G3748 made G4160 (AorActInd) a marriage G1062 for his G846 son G5207,
[3] And G2532 sent forth G649 (AorActInd) his G846 servants G1401 to call G2564 (AorActInf) them that were bidden G2564 (PerfPasPtc) to G1519 the wedding G1062: and G2532 they would G2309 (ImpfActInd) not G3756 come G2064 (Aor2ActInf).
[4] Again G3825, he sent forth G649 (AorActInd) other G243 servants G1401, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Tell G2036 (Aor2ActImpr) them which are bidden G2564 (PerfPasPtc), Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), I have prepared G2090 (AorActInd) my G3450 dinner G712: my G3450 oxen G5022 and G2532 [my] fatlings G4619 [are] killed G2380 (PerfPasPtc), and G2532 all things G3956 [are] ready G2092: come G1205 (Impr) unto G1519 the marriage G1062.
[5] But G1161 they made light of G272 (AorActPtc) [it], and went their ways G565 (Aor2ActInd), one G3303 to G1519 his G2398 farm G68, another G1161 to G1519 his G846 merchandise G1711:
[6] And G1161 the remnant G3062 took G2902 (AorActPtc) his G846 servants G1401, and entreated [them] spitefully G5195 (AorActInd), and G2532 slew G615 (AorActInd) [them].
[7] But G1161 when the king G935 heard G191 (AorActPtc) [thereof], he was wroth G3710 (AorPasInd): and G2532 he sent forth G3992 (AorActPtc) his G846 armies G4753, and destroyed G622 (AorActInd) those G1565 murderers G5406, and G2532 burned up G1714 (AorActInd) their G846 city G4172.
[8] Then G5119 saith he G3004 (PresActInd) to his G846 servants G1401, G3303 The wedding G1062 is G2076 (PresInd) ready G2092, but G1161 they which were bidden G2564 (PerfPasPtc) were G2258 (ImpfInd) not G3756 worthy G514.
[9] Go ye G4198 (PresMidPasDepImpr) therefore G3767 into G1909 the highways G1327 G3598, and G2532 as many as G3745 G302 ye shall find G2147 (Aor2ActSubj), bid G2564 (AorActImpr) to G1519 the marriage G1062.
[10] So G2532 those G1565 servants G1401 went out G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 the highways G3598, and gathered together G4863 (Aor2ActInd) all G3956 as many as G3745 they found G2147 (Aor2ActInd), both G5037 bad G4190 and G2532 good G18: and G2532 the wedding G1062 was furnished G4130 (AorPasInd) with guests G345 (PresMidPasDepPtc).
[11] And G1161 when G1525 the king G935 came in G1525 (Aor2ActPtc) to see G2300 (AorMidDepInf) the guests G345 (PresMidPasDepPtc), he saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) there G1563 a man G444 which had G1746 not G3756 on G1746 (PerfMidPtc) a wedding G1062 garment G1742:
[12] And G2532 he saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Friend G2083, how G4459 camest thou G1525 (Aor2ActInd) in hither G5602 not G3361 having G2192 (PresActPtc) a wedding G1062 garment G1742? And G1161 he was speechless G5392 (AorPasInd).
[13] Then G5119 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) the king G935 to the servants G1249, Bind G1210 (AorActPtc) him G846 hand G5495 and G2532 foot G4228, and take G142 him G846 away G142 (AorActImpr), and G2532 cast G1544 (Aor2ActImpr) [him] into G1519 outer G1857 darkness G4655; there G1563 shall be G2071 (FutInd) weeping G2805 and G2532 gnashing G1030 of teeth G3599.
[14] For G1063 many G4183 are G1526 (PresInd) called G2822, but G1161 few G3641 [are] chosen G1588.
[15] Then G5119 went G4198 (AorPasDepPtc) the Pharisees G5330, and took G2983 (Aor2ActInd) counsel G4824 how G3704 they might entangle G3802 (AorActSubj) him G846 in G1722 [his] talk G3056.
[16] And G2532 they sent out G649 (PresActInd) unto him G846 their G846 disciples G3101 with G3326 the Herodians G2265, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Master G1320, we know G1492 (PerfActInd) that G3754 thou art G1488 (PresInd) true G227, and G2532 teachest G1321 (PresActInd) the way G3598 of God G2316 in G1722 truth G225, G2532 neither G3756 carest G3199 (PresActInd) thou G4671 for G4012 any G3762 [man]: for G1063 thou regardest G991 (PresActInd) not G1519 G3756 the person G4383 of men G444.
[17] Tell G2036 (Aor2ActImpr) us G2254 therefore G3767, What G5101 thinkest G1380 (PresActInd) thou G4671? Is it lawful G1832 (PresInd) to give G1325 (Aor2ActInf) tribute G2778 unto Caesar G2541, or G2228 not G3756?
[18] But G1161 Jesus G2424 perceived G1097 (Aor2ActPtc) their G846 wickedness G4189, and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Why G5101 tempt ye G3985 (PresActInd) me G3165, [ye] hypocrites G5273?
[19] Shew G1925 (AorActImpr) me G3427 the tribute G2778 money G3546. And G1161 they brought G4374 (AorActInd) unto him G846 a penny G1220.
[20] And G2532 he saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto them G846, Whose G5101 [is] this G3778 image G1504 and G2532 superscription G1923?
[21] They say G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Caesar’s G2541. Then G5119 saith he G3004 (PresActInd) unto them G846, Render G591 (Aor2ActImpr) therefore G3767 unto Caesar G2541 the things which are G3588 Caesar’s G2541; and G2532 unto God G2316 the things that are G3588 God’s G2316.
[22] When G2532 they had heard G191 (AorActPtc) [these words], they marvelled G2296 (AorActInd), and G2532 left G863 (Aor2ActPtc) him G846, and went their way G565 (Aor2ActInd).
[23] The same G1722 G1565 day G2250 came G4334 (AorActInd) to him G846 the Sadducees G4523, which G3588 say G3004 (PresActPtc) that there is G1511 (PresInf) no G3361 resurrection G386, and G2532 asked G1905 (AorActInd) him G846,
[24] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Master G1320, Moses G3475 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), If G1437 a man G5100 die G599 (Aor2ActSubj), having G2192 (PresActPtc) no G3361 children G5043, his G846 brother G80 shall marry G1918 (FutActInd) his G846 wife G1135, and G2532 raise up G450 (FutActInd) seed G4690 unto his G846 brother G80.
[25] Now G1161 there were G2258 (ImpfInd) with G3844 us G2254 seven G2033 brethren G80: and G2532 the first G4413, when he had married a wife G1060 (AorActPtc), deceased G5053 (AorActInd), and G2532, having G2192 (PresActPtc) no G3361 issue G4690, left G863 (AorActInd) his G846 wife G1135 unto his G846 brother G80:
[26] Likewise G3668 the second G1208 also G2532, and G2532 the third G5154, unto G2193 the seventh G2033.
[27] And G1161 last G5305 of all G3956 the woman G1135 died G599 (Aor2ActInd) also G2532.
[28] Therefore G3767 in G1722 the resurrection G386 whose G5101 wife G1135 shall she be G2071 (FutInd) of the seven G2033? for G1063 they all G3956 had G2192 (Aor2ActInd) her G846.
[29] Jesus G2424 answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and G1161 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Ye do err G4105 (PresPasImpr), not G3361 knowing G1492 (PerfActPtc) the scriptures G1124, nor G3366 the power G1411 of God G2316.
[30] For G1063 in G1722 the resurrection G386 they neither G3777 marry G1060 (PresActInd), nor G3777 are given in marriage G1547 (PresPasInd), but G235 are G1526 (PresInd) as G5613 the angels G32 of God G2316 in G1722 heaven G3772.
[31] But G1161 as touching G4012 the resurrection G386 of the dead G3498, have ye G314 not G3756 read G314 (Aor2ActInd) that which G3588 was spoken G4483 (AorPasPtc) unto you G5213 by G5259 God G2316, saying G3004 (PresActPtc),
[32] I G1473 am G1510 (PresInd) the God G2316 of Abraham G11, and G2532 the God G2316 of Isaac G2464, and G2532 the God G2316 of Jacob G2384? God G2316 is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 the God G2316 of the dead G3498, but G235 of the living G2198 (PresActPtc).
[33] And G2532 when the multitude G3793 heard G191 (AorActPtc) [this], they were astonished G1605 (ImpfPasInd) at G1909 his G846 doctrine G1322.
[34] But G1161 when the Pharisees G5330 had heard G191 (AorActPtc) that G3754 he had put G5392 the Sadducees G4523 to silence G5392 (AorActInd), they were gathered together G4863 (AorPasInd) G1909 G846.
[35] Then G2532 one G1520 of G1537 them G846, [which was] a lawyer G3544, asked G1905 (AorActInd) [him a question], tempting G3985 (PresActPtc) him G846, and G2532 saying G3004 (PresActPtc),
[36] Master G1320, which G4169 [is] the great G3173 commandment G1785 in G1722 the law G3551?
[37] G1161 Jesus G2424 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Thou shalt love G25 (FutActInd) the Lord G2962 thy G4675 God G2316 with G1722 all G3650 thy G4675 heart G2588, and G2532 with G1722 all G3650 thy G4675 soul G5590, and G2532 with G1722 all G3650 thy G4675 mind G1271.
[38] This G3778 is G2076 (PresInd) the first G4413 and G2532 great G3173 commandment G1785.
[39] And G1161 the second G1208 [is] like G3664 unto it G846 G3778, Thou shalt love G25 (FutActInd) thy G4675 neighbour G4139 as G5613 thyself G4572.
[40] On G1722 these G5025 two G1417 commandments G1785 hang G2910 (PresPasInd) all G3650 the law G3551 and G2532 the prophets G4396.
[41] While G1161 the Pharisees G5330 were gathered together G4863 (PerfPasPtc), Jesus G2424 asked G1905 (AorActInd) them G846,
[42] Saying G3004 (PresActPtc), What G5101 think G1380 (PresActInd) ye G5213 of G4012 Christ G5547? whose G5101 son G5207 is he G2076 (PresInd)? They say G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, [The Son] of David G1138.
[43] He saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto them G846, How G4459 then G3767 doth David G1138 in G1722 spirit G4151 call G2564 (PresActInd) him G846 Lord G2962, saying G3004 (PresActPtc),
[44] The LORD G2962 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto my G3450 Lord G2962, Sit thou G2521 (PresMidPasDepImpr) on G1537 my G3450 right hand G1188, till G2193 G302 I make G5087 (Aor2ActSubj) thine G4675 enemies G2190 thy G4675 footstool G5286 G4228?
[45] If G1487 David G1138 then G3767 call G2564 (PresActInd) him G846 Lord G2962, how G4459 is he G2076 (PresInd) his G846 son G5207?
[46] And G2532 no man G3762 was able G1410 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) to answer G611 (AorPasDepInf) him G846 a word G3056, neither G3761 durst G5111 (AorActInd) any G5100 [man] from G575 that G1565 day G2250 forth ask G1905 (AorActInf) him G846 any more G3765 [questions].

Young’s Literal Translation

Matthew 22 (YLT)

[1] And Jesus answering, again spake to them in similes, saying,
[2] ‘The reign of the heavens was likened to a man, a king, who made marriage-feasts for his son,
[3] and he sent forth his servants to call those having been called to the marriage-feasts, and they were not willing to come.
[4] ‘Again he sent forth other servants, saying, Say to those who have been called: Lo, my dinner I prepared, my oxen and the fatlings have been killed, and all things are ready, come ye to the marriage-feasts;
[5] and they, having disregarded it, went away, the one to his own field, and the other to his merchandise;
[6] and the rest, having laid hold on his servants, did insult and slay them.
[7] ‘And the king having heard, was wroth, and having sent forth his soldiers, he destroyed those murderers, and their city he set on fire;
[8] then saith he to his servants, The marriage-feast indeed is ready, and those called were not worthy,
[9] be going, then, on to the cross-ways, and as many as ye may find, call ye to the marriage-feasts.
[10] ‘And those servants, having gone forth to the ways, did gather all, as many as they found, both bad and good, and the marriage-feast apartment was filled with those reclining.
[11] ‘And the king having come in to view those reclining, saw there a man not clothed with clothing of the marriage-feast,
[12] and he saith to him, Comrade, how didst thou come in hither, not having clothing of the marriage-feast? and he was speechless.
[13] ‘Then said the king to the ministrants, Having bound his feet and hands, take him up and cast forth to the outer darkness, there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of the teeth;
[14] for many are called, and few chosen.’
[15] Then the Pharisees having gone, took counsel how they might ensnare him in words,
[16] and they send to him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, ‘Teacher, we have known that thou art true, and the way of God in truth thou dost teach, and thou art not caring for any one, for thou dost not look to the face of men;
[17] tell us, therefore, what dost thou think? is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar or not?’
[18] And Jesus having known their wickedness, said, ‘Why me do ye tempt, hypocrites?
[19] show me the tribute-coin?’ and they brought to him a denary;
[20] and he saith to them, ‘Whose is this image and the inscription?’
[21] they say to him, ‘Caesar’s;’ then saith he to them, ‘Render therefore the things of Caesar to Caesar, and the things of God to God;’
[22] and having heard they wondered, and having left him they went away.
[23] In that day there came near to him Sadducees, who are saying there is not a rising again, and they questioned him, saying,
[24] ‘Teacher, Moses said, If any one may die not having children, his brother shall marry his wife, and shall raise up seed to his brother.
[25] ‘And there were with us seven brothers, and the first having married did die, and not having seed, he left his wife to his brother;
[26] in like manner also the second, and the third, unto the seventh,
[27] and last of all died also the woman;
[28] therefore in the rising again, of which of the seven shall she be wife-for all had her?’
[29] And Jesus answering said to them, ‘Ye go astray, not knowing the Writings, nor the power of God;
[30] for in the rising again they do not marry, nor are they given in marriage, but are as messengers of God in heaven.
[31] ‘And concerning the rising again of the dead, did ye not read that which was spoken to you by God, saying,
[32] I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not a God of dead men, but of living.’
[33] And having heard, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching;
[34] and the Pharisees, having heard that he did silence the Sadducees, were gathered together unto him;
[35] and one of them, a lawyer, did question, tempting him, and saying,
[36] ‘Teacher, which is the great command in the Law?’
[37] And Jesus said to him, ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thine understanding-
[38] this is a first and great command;
[39] and the second is like to it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself;
[40] on these-the two commands-all the law and the prophets do hang.’
[41] And the Pharisees having been gathered together, Jesus did question them,
[42] saying, ‘What do ye think concerning the Christ? of whom is he son?’ They say to him, ‘Of David.’
[43] He saith to them, ‘How then doth David in the Spirit call him lord, saying,
[44] The Lord said to my lord, Sit at my right hand, till I may make thine enemies thy footstool?
[45] If then David doth call him lord, how is he his son?’
[46] And no one was able to answer him a word, nor durst any from that day question him any more.
