Matthew 22
Mat 22:1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, (kjv) Mat 22:1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying, Mat 22:1 καὶ ἀποκριθεὶς ὁ ἰησοῦς πάλιν εἶπεν ἐν παραβολαῖς αὐτοῖς λέγων,
Mat 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, (kjv) Mat 22:2 "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. Mat 22:2 ὡμοιώθη ἡ βασιλεία τῶν οὐρανῶν ἀνθρώπῳ βασιλεῖ, ὅστις ἐποίησεν γάμους τῶ υἱῶ αὐτοῦ.
Mat 22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. (kjv) Mat 22:3 And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come. Mat 22:3 καὶ ἀπέστειλεν τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ καλέσαι τοὺς κεκλημένους εἰς τοὺς γάμους, καὶ οὐκ ἤθελον ἐλθεῖν.
Mat 22 4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready come unto the marriage. (kjv) Mat 22:4 Again he sent out other slaves saying, 'Tell those who have been invited," Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast."' Mat 22:4 πάλιν ἀπέστειλεν ἄλλους δούλους λέγων, εἴπατε τοῖς κεκλημένοις, ἰδοὺ τὸ ἄριστόν μου ἡτοίμακα, οἱ ταῦροί μου καὶ τὰ σιτιστὰ τεθυμένα, καὶ πάντα ἕτοιμα· δεῦτε εἰς τοὺς γάμους.
Mat 22:5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise: (kjv) Mat 22:5 But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business, Mat 22:5 οἱ δὲ ἀμελήσαντες ἀπῆλθον, ὃς μὲν εἰς τὸν ἴδιον ἀγρόν, ὃς δὲ ἐπὶ τὴν ἐμπορίαν αὐτοῦ·
Mat 22:6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them. (kjv) Mat 22:6 and the rest seized his slaves and mistreated them and killed them. Mat 22:6 οἱ δὲ λοιποὶ κρατήσαντες τοὺς δούλους αὐτοῦ ὕβρισαν καὶ ἀπέκτειναν.
Mat 22:7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city. (kjv) Mat 22:7 But the king was enraged, and he sent his armies and destroyed those murderers and set their city on fire. Mat 22:7 ὁ δὲ βασιλεὺς ὠργίσθη, καὶ πέμψας τὰ στρατεύματα αὐτοῦ ἀπώλεσεν τοὺς φονεῖς ἐκείνους καὶ τὴν πόλιν αὐτῶν ἐνέπρησεν.
Mat 22:8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. (kjv) Mat 22:8 Then he said to his slaves, 'The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. Mat 22:8 τότε λέγει τοῖς δούλοις αὐτοῦ, ὁ μὲν γάμος ἕτοιμός ἐστιν, οἱ δὲ κεκλημένοι οὐκ ἦσαν ἄξιοι·
Mat 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. (kjv) Mat 22:9 Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast. ' Mat 22:9 πορεύεσθε οὗν ἐπὶ τὰς διεξόδους τῶν ὁδῶν, καὶ ὅσους ἐὰν εὕρητε καλέσατε εἰς τοὺς γάμους.
Mat 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. (kjv) Mat 22:10 Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered together all they found, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with dinner guests. Mat 22:10 καὶ ἐξελθόντες οἱ δοῦλοι ἐκεῖνοι εἰς τὰς ὁδοὺς συνήγαγον πάντας οὓς εὖρον, πονηρούς τε καὶ ἀγαθούς· καὶ ἐπλήσθη ὁ γάμος ἀνακειμένων.
Mat 22:11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment: (kjv) Mat 22:11 "But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, Mat 22:11 εἰσελθὼν δὲ ὁ βασιλεὺς θεάσασθαι τοὺς ἀνακειμένους εἶδεν ἐκεῖ ἄνθρωπον οὐκ ἐνδεδυμένον ἔνδυμα γάμου·
Mat 22:12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. (kjv) Mat 22:12 and he said to him, 'Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes? 'And the man was speechless. Mat 22:12 καὶ λέγει αὐτῶ, ἑταῖρε, πῶς εἰσῆλθες ὧδε μὴ ἔχων ἔνδυμα γάμου; ὁ δὲ ἐφιμώθη.
Mat 22:13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness, there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. (kjv) Mat 22:13 Then the king said to the servants, 'Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. ' Mat 22:13 τότε ὁ βασιλεὺς εἶπεν τοῖς διακόνοις, δήσαντες αὐτοῦ πόδας καὶ χεῖρας ἐκβάλετε αὐτὸν εἰς τὸ σκότος τὸ ἐξώτερον· ἐκεῖ ἔσται ὁ κλαυθμὸς καὶ ὁ βρυγμὸς τῶν ὀδόντων.
Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen. (kjv) Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen." Mat 22:14 πολλοὶ γάρ εἰσιν κλητοὶ ὀλίγοι δὲ ἐκλεκτοί.
Mat 22:15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk. (kjv) Mat 22:15 Then the Pharisees went and plotted together how they might trap Him in what He said. Mat 22:15 τότε πορευθέντες οἱ φαρισαῖοι συμβούλιον ἔλαβον ὅπως αὐτὸν παγιδεύσωσιν ἐν λόγῳ.
Mat 22:16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men. (kjv) Mat 22:16 And they sent their disciples to Him, along with the Herodians, saying," Teacher, we know that You are truthful and teach the way of God in truth, and defer to no one; for You are not partial to any. Mat 22:16 καὶ ἀποστέλλουσιν αὐτῶ τοὺς μαθητὰς αὐτῶν μετὰ τῶν ἡρῳδιανῶν λέγοντες, διδάσκαλε, οἴδαμεν ὅτι ἀληθὴς εἶ καὶ τὴν ὁδὸν τοῦ θεοῦ ἐν ἀληθείᾳ διδάσκεις, καὶ οὐ μέλει σοι περὶ οὐδενός, οὐ γὰρ βλέπεις εἰς πρόσωπον ἀνθρώπων.
Mat 22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not? (kjv) Mat 22:17 Tell us then, what do You think? Is it lawful to give a poll-tax to Caesar, or not?" Mat 22:17 εἰπὲ οὗν ἡμῖν τί σοι δοκεῖ· ἔξεστιν δοῦναι κῆνσον καίσαρι ἢ οὔ;
Mat 22:18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? (kjv) Mat 22:18 But Jesus perceived their malice, and said," Why are you testing Me, you hypocrites? Mat 22:18 γνοὺς δὲ ὁ ἰησοῦς τὴν πονηρίαν αὐτῶν εἶπεν, τί με πειράζετε, ὑποκριταί;
Mat 22:19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny. (kjv) Mat 22:19 Show Me the coin used for the poll-tax." And they brought Him a denarius. Mat 22:19 ἐπιδείξατέ μοι τὸ νόμισμα τοῦ κήνσου. οἱ δὲ προσήνεγκαν αὐτῶ δηνάριον.
Mat 22:20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription? (kjv) Mat 22:20 And He said to them," Whose likeness and inscription is this?" Mat 22:20 καὶ λέγει αὐτοῖς, τίνος ἡ εἰκὼν αὕτη καὶ ἡ ἐπιγραφή;
Mat 22:21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's. (kjv) Mat 22:21 They said to Him," Caesar's." Then He said to them," Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and to God the things that are God's." Mat 22:21 λέγουσιν αὐτῶ, καίσαρος. τότε λέγει αὐτοῖς, ἀπόδοτε οὗν τὰ καίσαρος καίσαρι καὶ τὰ τοῦ θεοῦ τῶ θεῶ.
Mat 22:22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way. (kjv) Mat 22:22 And hearing this, they were amazed, and leaving Him, they went away. Mat 22:22 καὶ ἀκούσαντες ἐθαύμασαν, καὶ ἀφέντες αὐτὸν ἀπῆλθαν.
Mat 22:23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him, (kjv) Mat 22:23 On that day some Sadducees (who say there is no resurrection) came to Jesus and questioned Him, Mat 22:23 ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ προσῆλθον αὐτῶ σαδδουκαῖοι, λέγοντες μὴ εἶναι ἀνάστασιν, καὶ ἐπηρώτησαν αὐτὸν
Mat 22:24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother. (kjv) Mat 22:24 asking," Teacher, Moses said, 'If a man dies having no children, his brother as next of kin shall marry his wife, and raise up children for his brother. ' Mat 22:24 λέγοντες, διδάσκαλε, μωϊσῆς εἶπεν, ἐάν τις ἀποθάνῃ μὴ ἔχων τέκνα, ἐπιγαμβρεύσει ὁ ἀδελφὸς αὐτοῦ τὴν γυναῖκα αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀναστήσει σπέρμα τῶ ἀδελφῶ αὐτοῦ.

Mat 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. (kjv) Mat 22:29 But Jesus answered and said to them," You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God.

Mat 22:30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
