Matthew 22:9 Go youre waye out therfore in to ye hye wayes, and as many as ye fynde, byd them to the mariage. Matthew 22:10 And the seruauntes wete out in to the hye wayes, and gathered together as many as they coulde fynde, both good and bad, & the tables were all full.
Matthew 22:11 Then the kynge wete in, to se the gestes, and spyed there a man that had not on a weddynge garment,
The punishment of him that wanted the wedding garment.
Matthew 22:12 and sayde vnto him: Frende, how camest thou in hither, & hast not on a weddyinge garment? And he was euen spechlesse.

Matthew 22:17 Tell us therfore, how thinkest thou? Is it laufulll to geue tribute vnto the Emperoure, or not? Matthew 22:18 Now wha Iesus perceaued their wickednes, he sayde: O ye ypocrites, why tepte ye me? Matthew 22:19 Shewe me ye tribute money. And they toke hi a peny.

Matthew 22:25 Now were there with us seue brethren. The first maried a wife, and dyed: & for somoch as he had no sede, he left his wife vnto his brother. Matthew 22:26 Like wyse the secode, and thirde vnto the seueth. Matthew 22:27 Last of all the woman dyed also. Matthew 22:28 Now in the resurreccion, whose wife shal she be of the seuen? For they all had her. Matthew 22:29 Iesus answered, and sayde vnto them: Ye erre, and vnderstode not the scriptures, ner the power of God. Matthew 22:30 In the resurreccion they shal nether mary, ner be maried, but are as the angels of God in heauen. Matthew 22:31 As touchinge the resurreccio of the deed, haue ye notred, what is spoken vnto you of God, which sayeth: Matthew 22:32 I am the God of Abraham, and ye God of Isaac, and the God of Iacob?

Matthew 22:43 He sayde vnto them: How then doth Dauid in sprete, call him LORDE, sayenge: Matthew 22:44 The LORDE sayde vnto my LORDE: Syt thou on my right honde, tyll I make thine enemies thy fote stole. Matthew 22:45 Yf Dauid now call him LORDE, how is he then his sonne? Matthew 22:46 And no man coude answere him one worde, nether durst eny man axe him eny mo questios, fro that daye forth.
