Matthew 13:36–50

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.

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto dtreasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and eselleth all that he hath, and fbuyeth that field.

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one gpearl of great price, went and esold all that he had, and fbought it.

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is hlike unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered iof every kind: 48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at kthe end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and lsever the wicked from among the just, 50 mAnd shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
