14 Then the disciples of John came to Him, saying, l "Why do we and the Pharisees fast 1 often, but Your disciples do not fast?" 15 And Jesus said to them, "Can m the 2 friends of the bridegroom mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and n then they will fast. 16 "No one puts a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for 3 the patch pulls away from the garment, and the tear is made worse. 17 "Nor do they put new wine into old wineskins, or else the wineskins 4 break, the wine is spilled, and the wineskins are ruined. But they put new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved."New King James Version (NKJV) Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson, Inc.
