14 Then the disciples of John 18 Now John's disciples    
      and the Pharisees    
      were fasting;    
  came to him,*   and people came    
  saying,   and said to him,* 33 And they said to him,*
  "Why do we   "Why do John's disciples   "The disciples of John
  and   and the disciples    
  the Pharisees*   of the Pharisees*    
  fast,   fast,   fast often
          and offer prayers,
          and so do
          the disciples of the Pharisees,*
  but your disciples do not fast?"   but your disciples do not fast?"   but yours eat and drink."
15 And Jesus said to them, 19 And Jesus said to them, 34 And Jesus said to them,
  "Can   "Can   "Can you make
  the wedding guests mourn   the wedding guests fast   wedding guests fast
  as long as   while   while
  the bridegroom is with them?   the bridegroom is with them?   the bridegroom is with them?
      As long as they have    
      the bridegroom with them,    
      they cannot fast.    
  The days will come, when 20 The days will come, when 35 The days will come, when
  the bridegroom is taken away   the bridegroom is taken away   the bridegroom is taken away
  from them,   from them,   from them,
  and then they will fast.   and then they will fast   and then they will fast.
      in that day.   in those days."
        36 He told them a parable also:
16 And no one puts* 21 No one sews   "No one tears
  a piece of unshrunk cloth   a piece of unshrunk cloth   a piece from a new garment
          and puts* it
  on an old garment,   on an old garment;   upon an old garment;
  for   if he does,   if he does,
  the patch tears away    the patch tears away   he will tear the new,
  from the garment,   from it,    
      the new   and the piece from the new
      from the old,   will not match the old.
  and a worse tear is made.   and a worse tear is made.    
17 Neither is new wine put 22 And no one puts new wine 37 And no one puts new wine
  into old wineskins;   into old wineskins;   into old wineskins;
  if it is,   if he does,   if he does,
      the wine will   the new wine will
  the skins burst,   burst the skins,   burst the skins
  and the wine is spilled,   and the wine is lost,   and it will be spilled,
  and the skins are destroyed;   and so are the skins;   and the skins will be destroyed.
  but new wine is put   but new wine is 38 But new wine must be put
  into fresh wineskins,   for fresh skins."   into fresh wineskins.
  and so both are preserved."        
        39 And no one
          after drinking old wine
          desires new;
          for he says,
          `The old is good.'"
