1 That day Jesus went out of athe house and was sitting bby the sea. 2 And Ilarge crowds gathered to Him, so aHe got into a boat and sat down, and the whole crowd was standing on the beach.

An Explanation

10 ¶ And the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do You speak to them in parables?” 11 IJesus answered them, aTo you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted. 12 aFor whoever has, to him [more] shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him. 13 Therefore I speak to them in parables; because while aseeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. 14 IIn their case the prophecy of Isaiah is being fulfilled, which says,
  IIaYOU WILL KEEP ON HEARING, IIIBUT WILL NOT UNDERSTAND;
  IVYOU WILL KEEP ON SEEING, BUT WILL NOT PERCEIVE;
  15 aFOR THE HEART OF THIS PEOPLE HAS BECOME DULL,
  WITH THEIR EARS THEY SCARCELY HEAR,
  AND THEY HAVE CLOSED THEIR EYES,
  OTHERWISE THEY WOULD SEE WITH THEIR EYES,
  HEAR WITH THEIR EARS,
  AND UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART AND RETURN,
  AND I WOULD HEAL THEM.’
16 aBut blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear. 17 For truly I say to you that amany prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see [it], and to hear what you hear, and did not hear [it].

The Sower Explained

18aHear then the parable of the sower. 19 When anyone hears athe Iword of the kingdom and does not understand it, bthe evil [one] comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is the one on whom seed was sown beside the road. 20 The one on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, this is the man who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no [firm] root in himself, but is [only] temporary, and when affliction or persecution arises because of the Iword, immediately he IIafalls away. 22 And the one on whom seed was sown among the thorns, this is the man who hears the word, and the worry of athe Iworld and the bdeceitfulness of wealth choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. 23 And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some aa hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.”

Tares among Wheat

24 ¶ Jesus presented another parable to them, saying, aThe kingdom of heaven Imay be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed Itares among the wheat, and went away. 26 But when the Iwheat sprouted and bore grain, then the tares became evident also. 27 The slaves of the landowner came and said to him, ‘Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? IHow then does it have tares?’ 28 And he said to them, ‘An Ienemy has done this!’ The slaves *said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go and gather them up?’ 29 But he *said, ‘No; for while you are gathering up the tares, you may uproot the wheat with them. 30 Allow both to grow together until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up; but agather the wheat into my barn.”’”

The Mustard Seed

31 ¶ He presented another parable to them, saying, aThe kingdom of heaven is like ba mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field; 32 and this is smaller than all [other] seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that aTHE BIRDS OF THE IAIR come and NEST IN ITS BRANCHES.”

The Leaven

33 ¶ He spoke another parable to them, aThe kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in bthree Ipecks of flour until it was all leavened.”

34 ¶ All these things Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables, and He did not speak to them awithout a parable. 35 [This was] to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:
  “aI WILL OPEN MY MOUTH IN PARABLES;
  I WILL UTTER THINGS HIDDEN SINCE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD.”

[34] aMk 4:34; Jn 10:6; 16:25

The Tares Explained

36 ¶ Then He left the crowds and went into athe house. And His disciples came to Him and said, “bExplain to us the parable of the Itares of the field.” 37 And He said, “The one who sows the good seed is athe Son of Man, 38 and the field is the world; and [as for] the good seed, these are athe sons of the kingdom; and the tares are bthe sons of cthe evil [one]; 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is athe Iend of the age; and the reapers are angels. 40 So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at athe Iend of the age. 41 aThe Son of Man bwill send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom Iall cstumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, 42 and awill throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place bthere will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 aThen THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN in the kingdom of their Father. bHe who has ears, Ilet him hear.

47“Again, athe kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet cast into the sea, and gathering [fish] of every kind; 48 and when it was filled, they drew it up on the beach; and they sat down and gathered the good [fish] into containers, but the bad they threw away. 49 So it will be at athe Iend of the age; the angels will come forth and IItake out the wicked from among the righteous, 50 and awill throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place bthere will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Jesus Revisits Nazareth

53aWhen Jesus had finished these parables, He departed from there. 54 aHe came to IHis hometown and b[began] teaching them in their synagogue, so that cthey were astonished, and said, “Where [did] this man [get] this wisdom and [these] IImiraculous powers? 55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? Is not aHis mother called Mary, and His abrothers, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? 56 And aHis sisters, are they not all with us? Where then [did] this man [get] all these things?” 57 And they took aoffense at Him.

The parable of the sower and the seed:

3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4 And when he sowed, some [seeds] fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11 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. 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed [are] your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17 For verily 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].

18Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth [it] not, then cometh the wicked [one], and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. 20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. 22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth [it]; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

The parable of the tares,

24 ¶ Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 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, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

of the mustard seed,

31 ¶ 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: 32 Which indeed is the least 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.

33 ¶ Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. 34 All 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, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. 36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the 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 the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked [one]; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the 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 the end of this world. 41 The 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 cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

of the drawnet cast into the sea,

47Again, 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 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 the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. 52 Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe [which is] instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man [that is] an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure [things] new and old.

and how Christ is contemned of his own countrymen.

53 ¶ And it came to pass, [that] when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. 54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this [man] this wisdom, and [these] mighty works? 55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this [man] all these things? 57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. 58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
