Isaiah 25:6-9:

Matthew 22
The Parable of the Wedding Banquet
1Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: 2"The kingdom of
heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son.
3He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet
to tell them to come, but they refused to come.

4"Then he sent some more servants and said, 'Tell those who have been
invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle
have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding
banquet.'

5"But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another
to his business. 6The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and
killed them. 7The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed
those murderers and burned their city.

8"Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but
those I invited did not deserve to come. 9Go to the street corners and
invite to the banquet anyone you find.' 10So the servants went out
into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both
good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests.

11"But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man
there who was not wearing wedding clothes. 12'Friend,' he asked, 'how
did you get in here without wedding clothes?' The man was speechless.

13"Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and
throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and
gnashing of teeth.'

14"For many are invited, but few are chosen."
