Upon being called, the invited guests started making excuses. The first person said to the servant ‘I have bought a field and I must go out and see it, please have me excused’. Another one said ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I got to examine them. Please have me excused’.
Another guest said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come’. The servant went back to his master and reported all what had happened. Then the master instructed the servant to go to the high way and call the poor, crippled, blind and lame and all came and filled his house.
