Mateus 22

1 AND Jeshu answered again by comparisons, and said,

2 The kingdom of heaven resembles a royal person who made a feast to his son;

3 and he sent his servants to call the invited ones to the feast, but they were not willing to come.

4 And again he sent other servants, and said, Tell the invited ones, Behold, my dinner is prepared, my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready; come to the feast.

5 But they despised (it), and went, one to his domain, and another to his business.

6 But the rest took his servants and shamefully treated and killed (them).

7 But when the king heard, he was wroth; and sent his forces and destroyed those murderers, and burned their city.

8 Then said he to his servants, The feast is prepared, and those who were invited were not worthy.

9 Go therefore into the outlets of the highways, and every one whom you find call to the feast.

10 And those servants went forth into the highways, and assembled all whom they found, the bad and the good; and the place of feasting was filled with guests,

11 And the king entered to see the guests, and he saw there a man who was not dressed in the garments of a festival.

12 And he said to him, My friend, how didst thou enter here, when thou hast not the vestments of the feast? But he was silent.

13 Then said the king unto the servitors, Bind his hands and his feet, and cast him forth into the darknesses without: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

14 For many are the called, but few the chosen.

15 THEN went the Pharishee and took counsel how they might ensnare him in discourse.

16 And they sent to him their disciples with (certain) of the household of Herodes, saying to him, Doctor, we know that thou art resolutely true, and (that) the way of Aloha in truth thou teachest; neither carriest thou fear for man, for thou acceptest not the person of men.

17 Tell us then, how doth it appear to thee? is it lawful to give head-money unto Cesar or not?

18 But Jeshu knew their malice, and said, Why do you tempt me, you hypocrites?

19 Show me the denarius of the head-silver. And they presented to him a denarius.

20 And Jeshu said to them, Whose are this image and inscription?

21 They say, Cesar's. He saith to them, Give then (the things) of Cesar unto Cesar, and (the things) of Aloha unto Aloha.

22 And when they heard, they wondered, and left him, and went.

23 IN that (same) day came the Zadukoyee, affirming to him, (that) there is no life for the dead. And they questioned him,

24 saying to him, Doctor, Musha has said to us that if a man die having no children, his brother shall take his wife and raise up seed unto his brother.

25 But there were with us seven brethren: the eldest (of whom) took a wife, and died. And because he had no children, he left his wife unto his brother.

26 So also did he who was second, and he who was the third, and unto the seventh of them.

27 But the last of all the woman also is dead.

28 In the resurrection, therefore, of whom from these seven shall she be the wife? for all had taken her.

29 Jeshu answered and said to them, You do err, because you understand not the scriptures nor the power of Aloha.

30 For in the resurrection of the dead, they take not wives, neither are wives to husbands; but as the angels of Aloha in heaven are they.

31 But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which has been spoken to you by Aloha, who said,

32 I am the God of Abraham, the God of Is'hok, the God of Jakub? But Aloha is not of those who are dead, but of those who are alive.

33 And when the multitudes heard, they were wonder-struck at his doctrine.

34 BUT when the Pharishee heard that he had silenced the Zadukoyee, they gathered together.

35 And one from them, who was skilful in the law, questioned him, tempting him,

36 Doctor, which commandment is greatest in the law?

37 Jeshu said to him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy Aloha with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the commandment, the great and the first.

39 And the second is like unto it, That thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang the law and the prophets.

41 while the Pharishee were gathered together, Jeshu questioned them,

42 and said, What say you concerning the Meshicha,-whose son? They say to him, Son of David.

43 Saith he to them, And how doth David in spirit call him THE LORD? For he said,

44 that the Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand until I put thine adversaries beneath thy feet.

45 If, then, David calleth him the Lord, how is he his son?

46 And no man could give to him the answer; nor did any man dare again from that day to question him.
