On that day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by (2) the sea side. "And there were gathered unto him great multitudes, so that he entered into a boat, and sat; and all the multitude stood on the beach. "And he spake to them many things in parables, saying, Behold, the (4 sower went forth to sow; "and as he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the birds came and devoured 5 them: "and others fell upon the rocky places, where they had not much earth and straightway they sprang up, 6 because they had no deepness of earth: "and when the sun was risen, they were scorched; and because they had 7 no root, they withered away.

And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why (11) speakest thou unto them in parables? "And he answered and said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not (12 given. "For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but whosoever hath not, from 13) him shall be taken away even that which he hath. "Therefore speak I to them in parables; because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they under(14 stand. "And unto them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith,


By hearing ye shall hear, and shall in no wise understand;

And seeing ye shall see, and shall in no wise perceive :

"For this people's heart is waxed gross,

And their ears are dull of hearing,

And their eyes they have closed;

Lest haply they should perceive with their eyes,
And hear with their ears,

And understand with their heart,

Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man that sowed good seed in his field: "but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat, and went away. 26 "But when the blade sprang up, and brought forth fruit, (27) then appeared the tares also. "And the servants of the

"But he saith, Nay; lest haply while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the wheat with "Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them : but gather the wheat into my barn.

Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three 1measures of meal, till it was all leavened. 34) All these things spake Jesus in parables unto the multitudes; and without a parable spake he nothing unto 35 them: "that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying,

I will utter things hidden from the foundation of

the world.

Then he left the multitudes, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Explain unto us (37 the parable of the tares of the field. "And he answered

and said, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of 38 man; "and the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the (39 sons of the evil one; "and the enemy that sowed them

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hidden in the field; which a man found, and hid; and 1in his joy he goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48) "which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach; and they sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but the bad they cast away.
