8然后对仆人说:‘婚筵已经预备好了,只是被邀请的人不配。
8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
8 Verse 8. Were not worthy.] Because they made light of it, and

would not come; preferring earthly things to heavenly blessings.

Among the Mohammedans, refusal to come to a marriage feast, when

invited, is considered a breach of the law of God. HEDAYAH, vol.

iv. p. 91. Any one that shall be invited to a dinner, and does

not accept the invitation, disobeys God, and his messenger: and

any one who comes uninvited, you may say is a thief, and returns a

plunderer.-Mischat ul Mesabih. It was probably considered in this

light among all the oriental nations. This observation is

necessary, in order to point out more forcibly the iniquity of the

refusal mentioned in the text. A man may be said to be worthy of,

or fit for, this marriage feast, when, feeling his wretchedness

and misery, he comes to God in the way appointed, to get an

entrance into the holiest, by the blood of Jesus.
