MT22:11 “Now when the king arrived to view those reclining at the festival table he saw there a person without a wedding garment. MT22:12 The king said to this person, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding garment?’ But, the person could not answer. MT22:13 Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind both hands and feet and cast this person into the darkness outside. There will be lamentation and grinding of teeth.’
 When the king arrived: This is the Parousia and the parousia-judgment. Note the “arrival” of the Most High in Daniel 7:22. Compare related parables at Matthew 24:44-25:46. Consider Daniel 12:1, 2; 2 Corinthians 5:10; 1 John 2:28; 1 John 4:17.
 To view: Or, MON: to inspect.
 Without a wedding garment: See Revelation 19:8. Like all weddings the invited guests dress appropriately to the occasion. This person dresses in such a way to make it obvious he is out of place at these festivities. Our dress often reveals something about us and our attitudes.
 Friend: Or, NW: Fellow.
 The person could not answer: Or, KJV: speechless; RHM: put to silence; KNX: made no reply; MON: lips were sealed.
 Servants: The Greek is DIAKONOIS and is often rendered “minister.” It is possible these are the “angels” of Matthew 13:41 and Matthew 25:31. Compare Hebrews 1:14.
 The darkness outside: Compare notes on Matthew 8:12, Matthew 13:42, Matthew 24:51, Matthew 25:30.
