34 kAll these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: 35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, lI will open my mouth in parables; mI will utter things which have been kept secret nfrom the foundation of the world.
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into othe house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us pthe parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is qthe world; the good seed are rthe children of the kingdom; but the tares are sthe children of tthe wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; uthe harvest is xthe end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in xthe end of this world. 41 xxThe Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all ||things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall ycast them into yya furnace of fire: zthere shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall athe righteous shine forth as the sun in bthe kingdom of their Father. cWho hath ears to hear, let him hear.
