(οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ νυμφῶνος , hoi huioı́ toú numphō̇nos ): These were friends or companions of the bridegroom and were usually very numerous (Matthew 9:15; Mark 2:19; Luke 5:34 ). Any wedding guest might be included in the expression, or anyone who took part in the bridal procession and remained for the wedding-feast (see MARRIAGE ). In the above passages "the sons of the bride-chamber" are the disciples of Christ.
