4 eAgain he sent other servants, saying, ‘Tell those who are invited, “See, I have prepared my fdinner gmy oxen and my fat calves have been slaughtered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast.”’ 5But hthey paid no attention and went off, one to his farm, another to his business, 6while the rest seized his servants itreated them shamefully, and jkilled them. 7The king was angry, and he sent his troops and kdestroyed those murderers and burned their city. 8Then he said to his servants, ‘The wedding feast is ready, but those invited were not lworthy. 9Go therefore to the main roads and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.’ 10And those servants went out into the roads and mgathered all whom they found, both bad and good. So the wedding hall was filled with guests.
