Matthew 9:14Matthew 9:17

5. Being Incompatible with Religion

14 aThen the bdisciples of John came to Him, saying, 1Why do we and the Pharisees 2cfast 3much, but Your ddisciples do 4not fast?

15 And Jesus said to them, The 1sons of the bridechamber cannot mourn as long as the 2abridegroom is with them, can they? But bdays will come when the bridegroom will be 3taken away from them, and then they will cfast.

16 No one puts a patch of 1unfulled cloth on an 2old garment, for that which fills it up pulls away from the garment, and a worse tear is made.

17 Neither do they put 1new wine into 2aold wineskins; otherwise, the wineskins burst, and the wine pours out, and the wineskins are ruined; but they put new wine into 3bfresh wineskins, and both are preserved.
