14:1 And it was done, when he had entered into the house of a prince of Pharisees, in the sabbath, to eat bread, they espied him. And it chanced that he went into the house of one of the chief pharises to eat bread, on a sabbath day: and they watched him. And it came to pass that when he was entered into the house of one of the chief Pharises on the Sabbath day, to eat bread, they watched him. And it came to pass, as he went into the house of one of the chief Pharises to eat bread on the Sabbath day, that they watched him.

14:3 And Jesus answering spake to the wise men of the law, and to the Pharisees, saying, Whether it is leaveful to heal in the sabbath? And Jesus answered and spake unto the lawyers and pharises, saying: is it lawful to heal on the sabbath day? Then Jesus answering, spake unto the expounders of the Law, and Pharises, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath day? And Jesus answering, spake unto the Lawyers and Pharises, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath day?

14:5 And he answering to them, said, Whose ass or ox of yours shall fall into a pit, and not anon he shall draw out him on the day of sabbath? And answered them saying: which of you shall have an ass, or an ox, fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the sabbath day? And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass, or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the Sabbath day? And answered them, saying, Which of you shall have an ass or an ox fallen into a pit, and will not straightway pull him out on the Sabbath day?

14:7 Forsooth he said also a parable to men bidden to a feast, beholding how they chose the first sitting places, saying to them, He put forth a similitude to the guests, when he marked how they pressed to the highest rooms, and said unto them: He spake also a parable to the guests, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms, and said unto them, And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms, saying unto them,
14:8 When thou shalt be bidden to weddings, sit not at the meat in the first place; lest peradventure a worthier than thou be bidden of him, When thou art bidden to a wedding of any man, sit not down in the highest room, lest a more honorable man than thou be bidden of him, When thou shalt be bidden of any man to a wedding, set not thyself down in the chiefest place, lest a more honorable man than thou, be bidden of him, When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room: lest a more honourable man than thou be bidden of him,
14:9 and lest he come that called thee and him, and say to thee, Give place to this, and thou shalt begin with shame to hold the lowest place. and he that bade both him and thee, come and say to thee: give this man room. And thou then begin with shame to take the lowest room. And he that bade both him and thee, come, and say to thee, Give this man room, and thou then begin with shame to take the lowest room. And he that bade thee and him, come, and say to thee, Give this man place: and thou begin with shame to take the lowest room.
14:10 But when thou art bidden to a feast, go, and sit down in the last place, that when he cometh, that bade thee to the feast, he say to thee, Friend, ascend up higher. Then worship shall be to thee, before men that sit together at the meat. But rather when thou art bidden, go and sit in the lowest room, that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee: friend sit up higher. Then shalt thou have praise in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee. But when thou art bidden, go & sit down in the lowest room, that when he that bade thee, cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, sit up here: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at table with thee. But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room, that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with thee.
14:11 For each that enhanceth himself, shall be made low; and he that meeketh himself, shall be highed. For whosoever exalteth himself, shall be brought low: And he that humbleth himself shall be exalted. For whosoever exalteth himself, shall be brought low, and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted. For whosoever exalteth himself, shall be abased: and he that humbleth himself, shall be exalted.
14:12 And he said also to him, that had bidden him to the feast, When thou makest a meat, or a supper, do not thou call thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy cousins, neither neighbours, nor rich men; lest peradventure and they bid thee again to the feast, and retribution be made to thee. Then said he also to him that bade him to dinner: When thou makest a dinner, or a supper: call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor yet rich neighbours: lest they bid thee again, and make thee recompense. Then said he also to him that had bidden him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor the rich neighbours, lest they also bid thee again, and a recompense be made thee. Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours, lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
14:13 But when thou makest a feast, call poor men, feeble men, crooked, and blind, But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, and the blind, But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, & the blind, But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind,
14:14 and thou shalt be blessed; for they have not whereof to yield again to thee, forsooth it shall be requited to thee in the rising again of just men. and thou shalt be happy: For they cannot recompense thee. But thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just men. And thou shalt be blessed, because they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just. And thou shalt be blessed, for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
14:15 And when one of them that sat together at the meat had heard these things, he said to him, Blessed is he, that shall eat bread in the realm of God. When one of them that sat at meat also heard that, he said unto him: happy is he that eateth bread in the kingdom of god. Now when one of them that sat at table, heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that eateth bread in the kingdom of God. And when one of them that sat at meat with him, heard these things, he said unto him, Blessed is he that shall eat bread in the kingdom of God.

And they all at once began to make excuse. The first said unto him: I have bought a farm, and I must needs go and see it, I pray thee have me excused. But they all with one mind began to make excuse: The first said unto him, I have bought a farm, and I must needs go out & see it: I pray thee have me excused. And they all with one consent began to make excuse: The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused.
