 214   SEATING at  FEASTS 
   Matt       Mark    Luke 12
     7  Now he told a parable
      to those who were invited,
      when he marked how they chose the places of honor.
   

8

"When you are invited by anyone to a marriage feast,
   

 

do not sit down in a place of honor,
      lest a more eminent man than you
   

 

be invited by him;
   

9

and he who invited you both will come
   

 

and say to you,
      'Give place to this man,'
      and then you will begin with shame
      to take the lowest place.
   

10

But when you are invited, 
      go and sit in the lowest place,
      so that when your host comes,
   

11

he may say to you,
      'Friend, go up higher';
   

 

then you will be honored
      in the presence of all who sit at table with you.
   

12

For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled,
      and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
