[28] And he left all, rose up, and followed him.
[29] And Levi made him a great feast in his own house: and there was a great company of publicans and of others that sat down with them.

[33] And they said unto him, Why do the disciples of John fast often, and make prayers, and likewise the disciples of the Pharisees; but thine eat and drink?
