5 33 And they said to him, "The disciples of John fast often and offer prayers, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but yours eat and drink." 5 34 And Jesus said to them, "Can you make wedding guests fast while the bridegroom is with them? 5 35 The days will come, when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days." 5 36 He told them a parable also: "No one tears a piece from a new garment and puts it upon an old garment; if he does, he will tear the new, and the piece from the new will not match the old. 5 37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; if he does, the new wine will burst the skins and it will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. 5 38 But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. 5 39 And no one after drinking old wine desires new; for he says, 'The old is good.'
