17 When the time for the banquet came, he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, "Come along: everything is ready now."
21 'The servant returned and reported this to his master. Then the householder, in a rage, said to his servant, "Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in here the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame."

35 It is good for neither soil nor manure heap. People throw it away. Anyone who has ears for listening should listen!'
