The first said unto him, I have bought za piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and aI go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. 20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
