Luke 14:12-14

The Parable of the Great Banquet

12He said also to the man who had invited him, When you give a  a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers
Or  your brothers and sisters. The plural Greek word adelphoi (translated “brothers”) refers to siblings in a family. In New Testament usage, depending on the context, adelphoi may refer either to brothers or to brothers and sisters
or your relatives or rich neighbors c  lest they also invite you in return and you be repaid.
13But when you give a feast d  invite e  the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, 14and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. For you will be repaid f  at g  the resurrection of the just.”
