Now he told a para­ble to those who were in­vited, when he marked how they chose the places of honor, say­ing to them, “When you are in­vited by any one to a mar­riage feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest a more em­i­nent man than you be in­vited by him; and he who in­vited you both will come and say to you, ‘Give your place to this man,’ and then you will be­gin with shame to take the low­est place. But when you are in­vited, go and sit in the low­est place, so that when your host comes he may say to you, `Friend, go up higher’; then you will be hon­ored in the pres­ence of all who sit at the ta­ble with you. For ev­ery one who ex­alts him­self will be hum­bled, and he who hum­bles him­self will be exalted.”
