Bible Quote 13:24 Jesus told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.
13:25 But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away.

13:26 When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared.
13:27 "The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?'
13:28 " 'An enemy did this,' he replied. "The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?'
13:29 " 'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them.
13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.' "
Bible Quote 13:36 Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field."
13:37 He answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man.
13:38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one,
13:39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
13:40 "As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age.

13:41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.
13:42 They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
