1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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;

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

44 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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

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.

add·KJB·GBGN·JG·MH·TSK

add

58 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
