'Invite' in the Bible
And invite Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show you what you shall do; and you shall anoint for Me the one I name to you.
But Nathan the prophet, Benaiah, the mighty men, and Solomon his brother he did not invite.
He has sacrificed oxen and fatlings and sheep in abundance, and has invited all the king's sons and Abiathar the priest and Joab the commander of the army. But he did not invite Solomon your servant.
In that day, says the Lord of hosts, you shall invite each man his neighbor under his own vine and his own fig tree.
Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy [that is, readiness to help those in trouble] and not sacrifice and sacrificial victims. For I came not to call and invite [to repentance] the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God), but sinners (the erring ones and all those not free from sin).
So go to the thoroughfares where they leave the city [where the main roads and those from the country end] and invite to the wedding feast as many as you find.
I have not come to arouse and invite and call the righteous, but the erring ones ( those not free from sin) to repentance [ to change their minds for the better and heartily to amend their ways, with abhorrence of their past sins].
Jesus also said to the man who had invited Him, When you give a dinner or a supper, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors, lest perhaps they also invite you in return, and so you are paid back.
But when you give a banquet or a reception, invite the poor, the disabled, the lame, and the blind.
