But the days will come, when the bridegroom shall be taken away from them, and then shall they fast in those days.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

2:20 fast. Fasting is appropriate during times of grief or great need, not in times of joy, such as wedding celebrations or preparations. Jesus, as the heavenly Bridegroom, was presently with His disciples, but after His ascension their future mission would encounter opposition and persecution, and then they would fast (note Paul’s testimony in II Corinthians 11:27).
