The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. MT 13:1 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship [boat], and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. MT 13:2 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; MT 13:3 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side [roadside], and the fowls [birds] came and devoured them up: MT 13:4 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith [immediately] they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: MT 13:5 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. MT 13:6 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: MT 13:7 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit [a crop WU], some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. MT 13:8 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. MT 13:9 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? MT 13:10 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. MT 13:11 NEED GOD He Enables For whosoever hath [has], to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that [which] he hath. MT 13:12 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. MT 13:13 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias [Isaiah], which saith, By [when WU] hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: MT 13:14 For this people's heart is waxed gross [grown callous], and their ears are dull [hard WU] of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should [otherwise they might WU] see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should [would WU] understand with their heart, and should be converted [turn], and I should heal them. MT 13:15 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Insensitivity But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. MT 13:16 For verily [most assuredly] I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. MT 13:17 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. MT 13:18 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth [snatches] away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. MT 13:19 But he that received the seed [sown] into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon [immediately] with joy receiveth it; MT 13:20 Yet hath he not [no] root in himself, but dureth [endures only WU] for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended [immediately he falls away WU]. MT 13:21 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care[s] of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. MT 13:22 HELPS BELIEVE Give But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit [a crop WU], and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. MT 13:23 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: MT 13:24 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares [weeds] among the wheat, and went his way [away]. MT 13:25 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. MT 13:26 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence [where] then hath it tares? MT 13:27 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou [do you want] then that we go and gather them up? MT 13:28 But he said, Nay [no]; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. MT 13:29 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares [weeds], and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn. MT 13:30 JUDGEMENT Separation Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: MT 13:31 Which indeed is the least [smallest] of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof. MT 13:32 BELIEVE Growing Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven [yeast], which a woman took, and hid [mixed WU] in three measures of meal [a large amount of flour WU], till the whole [it all] was leavened. MT 13:33 BELIEVE Growing All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: MT 13:34 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from [since WU] the foundation of the world. MT 13:35

Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare [explain] unto us the parable of the tares [weeds] of the field. MT 13:36 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; MT 13:37 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; MT 13:38 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. MT 13:39 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. MT 13:40 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend [cause sin WU], and them which do iniquity [evil WU]; MT 13:41 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. MT 13:42 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. [he] Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. MT 13:43 JUDGEMENT Separation Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. MT 13:44 HELPS BELIEVE Give Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: MT 13:45 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price [value WU], went and sold all that he had, and bought it. MT 13:46 HELPS BELIEVE Give Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered [fish] of every kind: MT 13:47 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels [containers], but cast the bad away. MT 13:48 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever [separate] the wicked from among the just, MT 13:49 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. MT 13:50 JUDGEMENT Separation Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say [answered] unto him, Yea [yes], Lord. MT 13:51 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe [expert in the law WU] which is instructed unto [about WU] the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old. MT 13:52 JESUS Teacher
