Mat 22:6 And the rest put violent hands on his servants, and did evil to them, and put them to death.
Mat 22:7 But the king was angry; and he sent his armies, and those who had put his servants to death he gave to destruction, burning down their town with fire.

Mat 22:10 And those servants went out into the streets, and got together all those whom they came across, bad and good: and the feast was full of guests.

Mat 22:12 And he says to him, Friend, how came you in here not having a guest’s robe? And he had nothing to say.
Mat 22:13 Then the king said to the servants, Put cords round his hands and feet and put him out into the dark; there will be weeping and cries of sorrow.
