Context
The Parable of the Wedding Feast

7And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying to them. 8When you are bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honorable man than you be bidden of him; 9And he that bade you and him come and say to you, Give this man place; and you begin with shame to take the lowest room. 10But when you are bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade you comes, he may say to you, Friend, go up higher: then shall you have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with you. 11For whoever exalts himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted. 12Then said he also to him that bade him, When you make a dinner or a supper, call not your friends, nor your brothers, neither your kinsmen, nor your rich neighbors; lest they also bid you again, and a recompense be made you. 13But when you make a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind: 14And you shall be blessed; for they cannot recompense you: for you shall be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
